Vijay, Rahul Fail Again as India Reduced to 11/2 at Lunch on Rain-Hit 2nd Day
The wily seamer removed openers Murali Vijay (0) and KL Rahul (8) in a space of 15 balls as play was stopped after 6.3 overs due to heavens opening up.
At stoppage, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara were batting with both having opened their accounts with a single each.
This was after England won the toss and opted to bowl under partly sunny skies.
Vijay looked to leave well, but played an uncharacteristic flick shot to a late outswinger from Anderson and was bowled for a five-ball duck.
India made two changes, and surprisingly, brought in an extra spinner. Kuldeep Yadav was picked ahead of Umesh Yadav, while Pujara made a comeback to the playing eleven with Shikhar Dhawan left out after a poor outing at Edgbaston.
