England openers Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed compiled fifties to add insult to India's injury after the visitors were rolled out for a reprehensible 78 in their first innings at Leeds. The opening day turned out to be a trainwreck for Virat Kohli and his troops with England finishing proceedings unscathed at 120 with a lead of 42. Given the unruffled manner in which Hameed and Burns went about their business and the scintillating form of Joe Root, it could well prove to be a tough day at the office for the oppositon which lends England potentially irrevocable grasp of the game.
