Binny's maiden fifty helps India to a draw

NOTTINGHAM, England - India debutant Stuart Binny's maiden fifty has made sure of a draw with England in the first Test at Trent Bridge.

On a docile pitch, a draw had always seemed the most likely outcome and so it proved as the first of this five-match series ended in stalemate ahead of Thursday's second Test at Lord's.

This result extended England's winless run to nine Tests — their worst sequence since they went 10 without victory from 1992 to 1993 — and meant India had now gone 15 Tests without an away win.

The match was an all-round triumph for 24-year-old India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar who, in his seventh match at this level, posted three Test-best performances in making 58 and 63 not out separated by a return of five for 82.

However, a draw had all but been assured after England's Joe Root (154 not out) and James Anderson (81) shared a Test record 10th-wicket stand of 198, eclipsing the 111 put on earlier in the match by India's last-wicket pair of Kumar and Mohammed Shami (51 not out).
