Rajkot, Nov 9 (IBNS): Winning the toss and electing to bat first, the English batsmen put up 102 runs for the loss of three wickets here on Wednesday, the first day of the inaugural Test match between India and England.

The Indian slip cordon started off on a lazy note, spilling as many as three catches, despite brave efforts from pacemen Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav.

England fielded teenager Haseeb Hameed, the 10th opening partner for Alastair Cook, who became the fifth youngest player to don the English Test jersey.

After a brief partnership of 47 runs, Cook departed for 21, trapped in front by Ravindra Jadeja.

He was followed by Hameed 31, who played some free flowing drives both off the pacers and spinners, before being trapped in front by Ravichandran Ashwin.

The numero uno Test bowler later accounted for Ben Duckett (13), as he induced an edge of the southpaw's willow.

At lunch, England are at 102 runs for the loss of three wickets with Joe Root unbeaten (35) at the crease.
