England seamer James Anderson said the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar was the key moment as the tourists reduced India to 273-7 on day one of the third Test.

Tendulkar, who made only 29 runs in the first two Tests, top-scored with 76 before he edged behind off Anderson.

England's 10-wicket victory in the second Test last month was inspired by the spin of Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann, who took all but one of the 20 wickets between them, but Anderson was the pick of the bowlers on day one in Kolkata with 3-68.

In dismissing Tendulkar, the Lancastrian matched former Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan's record of dismissing Test cricket's run-scorer eight times.
