This was the first major blow for Team India. Recently, the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma tested Positive for COVID-19 just a few days back during the net practice sessions.

As England won the toss and chose to field first, the Indian batsman was not in a good form by losing early wickets of the in-form batsmen.

At one stage, India was 98-5 and it seemed impossible for the Indian batsmen to sustain for long according to the strong bowling and fielding of England.

But Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja maintained a massive 222-run partnership which helped India reach the total of 338/7 in 73 overs at the end of Day 1.

Rishabh pant scored his 5th International test century with a score of 146 runs from 111 balls ( including 20 fours and 4 sixes) played like ODI innings.
