Another perfect day for England in front of a crowd of 10,641, which is many more than were expected this time last week. India closed on 25-1 in reply to England's 569-7 declared.
17-1 Like Ballance, Buttler and Bell, James Anderson enjoys the Ageas Bowl, the ground where he took his maiden first-class five-for. He has made the first breakthough, having found Shikhar Dhawan's outside edge to have the left-hander caught by Cook at first slip
569-7 England declared when Jos Buttler chopped on against Jadeja . He made 85 (83 balls, nine fours, three sixes). Woakes 7*.
564-6 Buttler drills another four back down the ground
560-6 Successive sixes from Buttler against Pankaj, smashed over mid-wicket and pulled. Sensational. A star is born
545-6 Buttler (65*) responds to a poor missed stumping from MS Dhoni by cutting another boundary against Jadeja
526-6 Bell is finally out for a fabulous 167 (256 balls, 19 fours and three sixes) caught at mid-on attempting another big one against Kumar.
526-5 Buttler has 50 on Test debut (64 balls, six fours, one six)
524-5 Buttler (49*) look so impressive as he cover drives four more. This partnership is already worth 104

495-5 Having reached 150, Bell (155*) swatted Pankaj through mid-wicket
490-5 Two fours in three balls against Jadeja, a Bell sweep and a Buttler reverse sweep.

441-5 Successive cover boundaries for Buttler (11*) against Jadeja. Good to see him playing his natural game
Jos Buttler nicked the sixth ball he faced, from Kumar, to second slip, India claimed the catch but after conferring the umpires decided it had not carried. Buttler got off the mark with three through the covers against the next ball
425-5 A sumptuous on-drive from Ian Bell (120*)
420-5 (135-5) Excellent diving catch by Rahane in the slips to dismiss Moeen Ali, who bottom edged an attempted pull against Kumar. Enter Jos Buttler on his Test debut
what a way for Ian Bell to bring up his fourth hundred in 7 innings for England @TheAgeasBowl #EngvInd— @simonhwalter 28 July 2014
418-4 Ian Bell (114*) began a thrilling assualt on Jadeja with his sublime straight six to bring up his century (179 balls, 12 fours, two sixes). Then he cover drove the next ball for four, came down the track to loft another six and cut another four. 21 off the over.
366-3 A trademark late cut from Ian Bell (75*) against Shami
top innings from Gary Ballance, he's come a long way since making his county debut @TheAgeasBowl, aged 16 #EngvInd http://t.co/BPcECG0Btd— @simonhwalter 28 July 2014
358-3 (119 overs) Fantastic morning for England, only tarnished by a poor decision that would have been overturned had DRS been in use. Bell 68*, Root 2*.
