India did not get off to a good start to their first innings as Rohit Sharma was sent back to the pavilion by Jofra Archer in the fourth over. Opener Shubman Gill was then joined by Cheteshwar Pujara but their partnership also did not last long as the former was dismissed by Archer in the 10th over.
Skipper Virat Kohli (11) too failed to leave a mark as Bess picked his wicket in the 25th over. In his next over, Bess got hold of Ajinkya Rahane (1), reducing India to 73/4. Pant then joined Pujara out in the middle.
While Pujara opted for a defensive approach, Pant played with an attacking mindset. Both completed their respective half-centuries and provided the team with some momentum. Their 119-run partnership was brought to an end by Bess, who removed Pujara (73) in the 51st over. Washington Sundar then came out to bat.
Continuing his stunning performance with the ball, Bess then scalped the wicket of Pant, who missed his century by nine runs. Ashwin and Sundar played very cautiously and avoided risky shots, ensuring hosts did not lose more wickets on the day.
