England 183 all out against India in 1st Test
India's Jasprit Bumrah (C) smiles as he leaves the field after taking 4 wickets in England's first Innings on the first day of the first cricket Test match.

India dismissed England for just 183 on the opening day of the first Test at Trent Bridge on Wednesday. Jasprit Bumrah, who struck with the fifth ball of the match to remove Rory Burns for one of four ducks in the innings, took 4-46 in 20.4 overs, with fellow paceman Mohammed Shami also bowling well for his 3-28 in 17 overs.

England captain Joe Root, who won the toss, top-scored with 64 and was the only batsman to pass 30, with Yorkshire team-mate Jonny Bairstow making 29 on his Test return.

England lost six wickets for 22 runs slumping from 138-3 to 160-9 but the increasingly overcast conditions that saw the floodlights switched on promised to be challenging for India's batsmen as well.

The hosts were without Ben Stokes after it was announced Friday the England all-rounder was taking an indefinite break from cricket to "prioritise his mental health". 

This is the first of a five-Test series.
