India vs England, 5th Test, Day 1 Live Score Updates: Cheteshwar Pujara and Hanuma VIhari will look to rebuild India’s innings as the visitors look to recover from the dismissal of Shubman Gill. James Anderson haulted India’s bright start on Day 1 after he removed Gill early in the morning session. This comes after Gill and his opening partner Pujara had given India a decent start. England captain Ben Stokes had earlier  won the toss and opted to bowl in the rescheduled fifth Test against India at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Friday. Cheteshwar Pujara would open the batting for India and Ravindra Jadeja has gotten the nod ahead of Ravichandran Ashwin. Focus would be on Virat Kohli as the Indian batters will face a stiff challenge against the England pacers on Day 1. Kohli had last scored a century in 2019 and since then, the three figure mark has eluded him. Kohli can take confidence from the fact that he had scored a century in Edgbaston in 2018. Jasprit Bumrah would lead India after Rohit Sharma tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday once again. England are in red hot form after they defeated New Zealand 3-0 by playing an attacking brand of cricket under Ben Stokes. It would be interesting to see how both teams approach the contest.
