219-6 Hampshire's Sean Terry, on as 12th man, takes the catch as Rahane goes for 54, attempting a pull that he miscued to mid-wicket. That's 2-4 in 12 balls for Moeen Ali. What a moment for the son of Paul Terry, who played two Tests against the West Indies 30 years ago

Former Hampshire Academy captain Michael Porter, released at the end of last season, is England's other substitute fielder. He has been on for Stuart Broad, but Sean Terry has been on Ian Bell for most of the day after the England batsman injured his thumb attempting a slip catch this morning.

Basingstoke Gazette:


148-4 Jos Buttler has kept well but had little chance with a James Anderson delivery that kept low and swung late past the England wicketkeeper for four byes


Basingstoke Gazette:

135-4 (48) Big wicket for James Anderson as Virat Kohli (39) nicks a ball that just left him outside off stump. Excellent low catch from Alastair Cook at first slip


135-3 Virat Kohli (38*) slashed hard at a Chris Jordan delivery that Alastair Cook got his fingertips to at first slip. It has to go down as a chance 


Basingstoke Gazette:

108-3 (40 overs) A good morning session for England, particularly Stuart Broad, who took the two wickets to fall. Virat Kohli 18*, Ajinkya Rahane 11*

England bowling: Anderson 13-4-31-1, Broad 10-3-23-2, Jordan 6-2-23-0, Woakes 8-6-10-0, Moeen Ali 3-0-13-0


Basingstoke Gazette:

Chris Jordan was not at his best during his first spell this morning (6-2-23-0)




97-3 Ian Bell, who has gone for a precautionary x-ray on his left thumb, described the Ageas Bowl's Test track as the best cricket wicket in the country after yesterday's run feast. Ever the perfectionist, Hampshire groundsman Nigel Gray spoke of his slight disappointment that there is not more pace in it, due to the high temperatures and the resulting lack of grass, when he popped into the Media Centre earlier. But England's bowlers, particularly Stuart Broad (6-1-19-2), who responded well to being first-change behind Chris Woakes,  have got more out of it than their Indian counterparts. 


88-3 Murali Vijay (35) played on against Broad


Basingstoke Gazette:

56-2 Steep bounce from Stuart Broad has seen off Cheteshwar Pujara, who gloved the ball as he attempted to leave it on the way through to Jos Buttler. A fantastic delivery.


Murali Vijay clipped a gorgeous boundary through mid-wicket but nicked Anderson's next ball just short of Ian Bell in the slips. Bell went off injured shortly afterwards so Hampshire batsman Sean Terry, England's 12th man, came on to field at backward point.

49-1 Murali Vijay (15*) has his first runs of the day after guiding the 21st ball he as faced this morning to the boundary at backward point. Suart Broad was the bowler


45-1 Textbook on-drive from Cheteshwar Pujara (24*) against James Anderson. Pujura has scored all 20 runs this morning


41-1 The crowd is down on yesterday but there are big queues at the ticket office


28-1 a fantastic ball from James Anderson bounced and left Murali Vijay (11*), who is still there despite a big appeal for caught behind 


Basingstoke Gazette:

An immaculate minute's silence before the start of play commemorated the four England Test players and 289 first-class cricketers who died during the First World War
