India vs England live score, ENG 263-3: And in the last over of the day, Bumrah has removed the danger man Dom Sibley for 87. He is out LBW and that is the end of day one. 

16:51 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 263-2: Into last two overs of the day and Sibley is into his 80s. He would like to get a ton by the end of day's play here. 

16:44 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 261-2: Skipper Kohli throws the ball back to Ashwin. And Root clears him for a big six over deep mid-wicket. This is excellent batting by him. 

16:34 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 250-2: Last few overs left in the day here. Can India get another wicket here? Meanwhile, 250 comes up for the English team and it has been a great day for them till now. 

16:26 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 249-2: Bumrah and Ishant are back into the attack. The team has also taken the new ball, but now it is Sibley's turn to complete his ton before the end of day's play. 

16:16 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 242-2: One wonders why Kohli is persisting with Sundar here, and not bringing on the pacers. They both have been the better bowlers on the day. Another over comes to an end. 

16:09 (IST)

Ind vs Eng Live Score, ENG 235-2: Now it seems like India has lost all hopes of dismissing English batsmen. They are hitting the bowlers at will now, and Sibley too is approaching a ton here. 

15:59 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 227-2: And 20th Test ton for England skipper Joe Root here. He has shown once again why he is one of the best in the business. He has lifted England from a tight position to a position of strength here. 

15:52 (IST)

Ind vs Eng Live Score, ENG 214-2: Sundar has been extremely wayward here, and been leaking way too many runs. All in all, this has been an ordinary effort by India, on the field today. 

15:44 (IST)

India vs England Live Score, ENG 205-2: Joe Root has suddenly shifted gears and is soon approaching his ton. This is will his third ton in as many Tests. The partnership too has moved over 140 here. Another over comes to an end. 

15:36 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 192-2: Kohli needs to go back to Ishant and Bumrah for another spell, and hope that the two get some wickets. For now this is not looking good for India. 

15:26 (IST)

Ind vs Eng Live Score, ENG 178/2: India have clearly missed the plot by not going in with Hardik Pandya, or just another pacer. For that matter, Kuldeep could have offered more support to the team. 

15:19 (IST)

India vs England Live Score, ENG 175-2: Over 20 overs left in the day and India have started giving away easy boundaries. This looks like a very easy wicket to bat on. And now Root has gone past Sibley as well, as far as runs scored is concerned. 

15:13 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 170-2: This is not looking good at the moment for India. Root and Sibley have combined well here and not giving any chance to the bowlers. 

15:02 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 163-2: Jasprit Bumrah back into the attack, but Root is watching the ball too well now. A superb cover driven boundary brings up the 100-run partnership.

14:58 (IST)

Joe Root has been all class.

14:50 (IST)

Nadeem has been rather ordinary

14:41 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 147-2: FIFTY for Joe Root off 110 balls. He's extending his terrific form. Can he make it a 100 in his 100th Test? Ishant and Nadeem bowling in tandem.

14:38 (IST)

India vs England live score, ENG 141-2: Play resumes after tea, and Ishant Sharma nearly provides a breakthrough. Gets Joe Root's edge but it falls just short of Rishabh Pant. Unfortunate there, the bowler. No carry at all.

14:13 (IST)

India vs England live score, TEA, DAY 1: ENG 140-2. 73 runs in that session, and more importantly, 0 wickets! England with a superb session there, thanks to Joe Root and Dom Sibley. They targeted the inexperienced bowlers - Nadeem and Washington - and kept the runs flowing. Ashwin has bowled 20 overs already. Bumrah and Ishant were probing but not too lucky.

India vs England Live Score, 1st Test at Chennai, Day 1: Bumrah Removes Sibley for 87, ENG End Day at 263-3

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 1st Test Live Updates: India vs England live score, ENG 263-3: And in the last over of the day, Bumrah has removed the danger man Dom Sibley for 87. He is out LBW and that is the end of day one.

Nick Knight and Deep Dasgupta are the pitch analysts for the day. Nick Knight says that the pitch looks fresh as cricket has not been played here for a long time. Deep Dasgupta reminds us that the last time India played a Test here was in 2016 and they scored 700 runs. He though adds this does not look like a 700-run wicket. There are a few spots on the deck and every time the ball hits these areas, it could behave slightly differently. Ends by saying that it could be a two-paced wicket.

India XI -- Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant(w), Washington Sundar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Shahbaz Nadeem

England XI - 1 Dom Sibley, 2 Rory Burns, 3 Dan Lawrence, 4 Joe Root (captain), 5 Ben Stokes, 6 Ollie Pope, 7 Jos Buttler (wk), 8 Dom Bess, 9 Jofra Archer, 10 Jack Leach, 11 James Anderson

TOSS: Shahbaz Nadeem, Washington Sundar in as ENG Opt to Bat

The England captain, Joe Root will become the 15th player from England to play his 100th Test match when he takes the field against India in the series opener in Chennai on the 5th of February. Root is amongst the greatest batsmen from England in the last 50 years, a fine player of spin and a member of the Fab-4 which comprises the great Steven Smith, Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson.

Axar Patel has been ruled out of the first Paytm Test against England. The all-rounder complained of pain in his left knee during Team India’s optional training session on Thursday. He is being monitored by the BCCI Medical Team and while his detailed reports are awaited, he will not be available for selection for the opening match.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the series opener between India and England. The first Test of the four-match series will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai.

Preview: Two teams on a high after victories away from home. Two teams with rich history and rivalry. India and England face off for a four-Test series starting with the first game at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai on Friday (February 5). India are coming after an incredible win in Australia, where they won 2-1 despite all odds. Numerous injuries, absence of key players, a 36 all out... they fought it all to emerge victorious. England, meanwhile, were busy 'sweeping' Sri Lanka 2-0. On most days, India will be favourites for a home series irrespective of who the opponent is. India haven't lost a series at home since 2012. They have only failed to win two of their last 25 Tests at home, with one loss and one draw each. The case is no different this time - India will be firm favourites, especially in the form they arrive in. England, though, will be no pushovers. They're the side that last won a Test series in India. They did lose a five-match series 4-0 in 2016, but the scoreline doesn't tell the full story.

England competed hard and gave India a decent run for their money, but Virat Kohli's men were just too good. England have arrived in India without their full strength squad, thanks to COVID-19 and bubble life difficulties, while India are closer to their strongest side. India showed their depth in Australia, so it's now hard to say which is their strongest side, especially at home. But if England can punch above their weight, like India did in Australia, who knows? Crucial points for the World Test Championship are at stake too, adding context to the clash. India have a problem of plenty. Virat Kohli is back. Ishant Sharma is back. R Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah will be back in the XI again after missing the last Test in Australia. Hardik Pandya is back too. Their only - and possibly big - worry is the absence of Ravindra Jadeja. There were initial reports that the Chepauk pitch would be pace friendly, but that's highly unlikely. India will play three spinners in all likelihood; Ashwin is an automatic pick, while Kuldeep Yadav could play the second spinner's role.

Axar Patel could make his debut considering India already have two spinners bringing the ball into the right hander. If that happens, Washington Sundar, one of their heroes in Brisbane, will consider himself unlucky. But such is the depth of the side. Next question: Who will keep? Rishabh Pant is an automatic choice in the XI after his terrific knock in Brisbane, but what about his keeping? Can he don the gloves in a home Test with three spinners? Or will India play Wriddhiman Saha along with Pant? The pace dilemma: Mohammed Siraj or Ishant Sharma to partner Jasprit Bumrah? Ishant is back in full fitness and should walk into the XI. Siraj is one of the stories of the Australian tour. But like Washington, he too could be unlucky to miss out. And finally: Shubman Gill vs Mayank Agarwal. 14, 243, 10, 108, 7, 215 - these are Agarwal's scores in the home season of 2019. Now who would have imagined that his position will not be guaranteed? But Gill is the man in form, and is likely to get the nod.
