England cricket team skipper Ben Stokes was left stunned and even he could not help but appreciate the brilliant delivery from Jasprit Bumrah that dismissed him on Day 1 of the first Test match against India in Hyderabad on Thursday. Stokes was the only England batter to score a half-century but his innings came to an end thanks to a stunner from Bumrah. The ball from Bumrah seamed away sharply and although he stepped out of the crease to play a big shot, Stokes missed it completely and the ball crashed into his stumps. The England batter took a second to comprehend what has happened and broke into a smile of appreciation for Bumrah and his wicket-taking delivery.

India were comfortably placed at 119 for one at stumps after bowling out England for 246 on the opening day of the first Test on Thursday.

Young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal was batting on a 70-ball 76 while Shubman Gill was unbeaten on 14 at the end of the day’s play, as India trailed by 127 runs after losing skipper Rohit Sharma (24).

England captain Ben Stokes won the toss and opted to bat first.

The visitors were off to a decant start with openers Zak Crawley (20) and Ben Duckett (35) adding 55 runs at a fairly good pace before Ravichandran Ashwin gave India their first breakthrough by having Duckett trapped in front of the wicket.

Stokes top-scored with 70 off 88 balls and was the last English wicket to fall, bowled by Jasprit Bumrah (28).

Jonny Bairstow contributed 37 off 58 balls before he was done in by a beautiful delivery from Axar Patel (2/33).

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin bagged three wickets apiece while there were two each for Axar and Bumrah.
