Mumbai, Dec 8:

Debutant Keaton Jennings cracked a superb century but India fought back to restrict England to 288/5 to end the first day’s action of the fourth Test on even keel at the Wankhede Stadium here on Thursday.


Jennings, the eighth English batsman to hit a century on debut (112), propelled the visitors to a strong position at 196/2 at tea. But India’s premier spinner Ravinchandran Ashwin (4-69) orchestrated a turnaround in the final session of the day to peg back England.

Jos Butler (18) and Ben Stokes (25) were at the crease at stumps.

Left-arm spiner Ravindra Jadeja (1-60) took the only other wicket to fall at the Wankhede Stadium.

Jennings’ fine effort was complemented by Moeen Ali (50). England skipper Alastair Cook contributed 46. (IANS)
