India all out for 152

Saturday, August 09, 2014

MANCHESTER, England - Stuart Broad took six wickets as India were bowled out for just 152 before tea on the first day of the fourth Test against England at Old Trafford yesterday.

Broad finished six for 25 in 13.4 overs, his third-best innings return in Tests, including a post-lunch burst of four for six in 21 balls.

New-ball partner James Anderson took three for 46 in 14 overs on his Lancashire home ground.

India equalled the record of six ducks in a Test innings, with three of their top four batsmen out for nought.

But given they had been four down for just eight runs, India's final score represented something of a recovery.

Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who won the toss and elected to bat despite the initially overcast conditions, top scored with 71.

The only other batsmen to make it into double figures were the recalled Ravichandran Ashwin (40) and Ajinkya Rahane (24).

All of India's first four wickets fell with their score on eight, a quartet of batsmen dismissed in the space of 13 balls.

Gautam Gambhir, recalled in place of the dropped Shikhar Dhawan in one of three changes to the India side that lost the third Test in Southampton by 266 runs, was first to go when he nicked Broad to Joe Root in the gully.

Anderson initially struggled to control the lavish swing on offer but the 32-year-old, who started the match just 12 wickets shy of Ian Botham's England record of 383 Test wickets, got his line and length right in the fifth over.

He took two wickets for no runs in three balls as both opener Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli fell for ducks after edging to England captain Alastair Cook at first slip.

Cheteshwar Pujara got an outside edge off Broad and Jordan, diving to his right, held a fine catch at third slip to have the tourists 4-8 inside six overs.
