England opener Rory Burns perished in the first over of the opening day of the first Test in Nottingham without troubling the scorers. Jasprit Bumrah, who took the new ball, made the incision as England found themselves in trouble early. The umpire had little hesitation in raising the finger as the ball hit Burns’ pad; however, on review, it showed umpire’s call.
The dismissal occurred in the fifth ball of the first over as Jasprit Bumrah pitched it full and straightened to beat the inside edge. The umpire raised his finger; however, the southpaw reviewed it after some deliberation. But ball-tracking showed that the delivery struck just top of the middle. As a result, Burns had to go without scoring.
Earlier, England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat first. Young batsman Ollie Pope missed out due to injury, paving the way for Jonny Bairstow. The hosts have opted for four fast bowlers in Sam Curran, Ollie Robinson, James Anderson, and Stuart Broad. India also moved forward without a frontline spinner and opted for Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur.
