England toil

MUMBAI – Tim Bresnan and Graeme Swann took three wickets apiece to help England XI cut through India A’s top order on day one of the tour match in Mumbai today, but it was still the hosts’ day.

Firstly, fast bowler Steven Finn experienced a niggle in his right thigh, for which he required a scan, and then India A forged a comeback led by a determined Manoj Tiwary (93). They ended the day on 369 for 9, with the last pairing of Vinay Kumar and Parvinder Awana knocking off quick runs.

Finn felt a pain in his thigh while chasing a ball within the first hour of play at the Brabourne Stadium, after bowling just four overs. Being a bowler down, however, didn’t prevent England’s bowlers from leaving India in some trouble at 190 for 6.

India scored rather quickly all through, with opener Abhinav Mukund (73) and Yuvraj Singh (59), getting to half-centuries, but none of the batsmen could kick on. It needed a 110-run seventh-wicket partnership between Tiwary and Irfan Pathan to lift them to a competitive score. (Cricinfo)
