Sehwag continued his disastrous form, as he was for a duck in the first over bowled by Anderson. Gambhir and Pujara added 58 runs for the second wicket before the latter was given out by Dharmasena wrongly.

That triggered a collapse, as Tendulkar was clean bowled for just 2 and Gambhir threw his wicket. India slumped to 71/4 at one stage. Gambhir scored 37, while Pujara made 26. For England, Anderson has taken three wickets so far. Anderson has now taken Sachin Tendulkar’s wicket nine times in Tests.
