Scotland once again suffer defeat to Canada in an ODI match, with Harsh Thaker scoring a century

India has completely turned this series around since their defeat in the first Test. They dominated the opening day and are on course for a huge win.

Kuldeep's spell of 15 successive overs was wonderful. He bowled with unerring control, arcing flight, and disguised variations. The googly fell to Pope, Bairstow and Stokes.

The wrist-spinner took five of the first six wickets to fall before being withdrawn for Ashwin to torment the tail. The off-spinner claimed the final four.

England required a strong start with the ball, but Rohit and Jaiswal put the visitors' batting into perspective. Rohit hit Wood for six, while Jaiswal treated Bashir with contempt.

Rohit successfully challenged being given out caught down the leg side off Anderson on 20, and Jaiswal, at the age of 22, achieved 1,000 runs in his 16th Test innings - the second-fastest by an Indian man.

Jaiswal reached 50 runs and was gaining momentum when he was stumped after running past Bashir. However, Gill came in to support Rohit, who brings a formidable presence into the second day.
