As it happened: England vs India, 4th Test, Day 1

(For ball-by-ball commentary scroll down to the bottom of the page)

England face the welcome problem of dealing with the consequences of winning ahead of the fourth Test against India at Old Trafford.

Victory by the huge margin of 266 runs in the third Test at Southampton last week saw England level the five-match series at 1-1.

It also ended a run of 10 Tests without a win for Alastair Cook's side and saw the captain himself return to form with two fifties, although it could all have been so different had he been caught in the slips on 15 in the first innings.
