July 21 (Bloomberg) -- England reached 43-1 in the opening cricket Test against India at Lord’s in London.
Alastair Cook scored 12 before being caught leg before wicket by Zaheer Khan after England was put into bat after losing the toss. Captain Andrew Strauss is 20 not out and Jonathan Trott has scored 9.
The match is the 2,000th in the 134 years of elite Test cricket. England can overtake India as the top team in the International Cricket Council rankings if it wins the four-match series by two Tests or more.
