Cheteshwar Pujara scored a fine century as India took the lead on the second day of the Southampton Test.

After England were skittled out for just 246 on Thursday, a total greatly inflated by Sam Curran’s fighting 78, the hosts fought hard on day two at the Ageas Bowl.

Stuart Broad picked up the wickets of opener Shikhar Dhawan for 23 and Lokesh Raul for 19 early on. Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara guided India to lunch on 100 for the loss of just the two wickets.

Kohli was dismissed by Curran for 46 before Ajinkya Rahane was controversially given lbw off what seemed a no-ball from Ben Stokes. Thereafter, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was dismissed for a 29-ball duck as the Indians took tea at 181-5.

In the final session, Moeen Ali completed his five-wicket haul before Pujara completed his century to take India ahead. India were bowled out for 273, for a lead for 27.
