Murali Vijay hit an unbeaten century but industrious bowling and athletic fielding helped England restrict India to 259 for 4 on a lifeless Trent Bridge pitch on the first day of the five-Test series.

In conditions more akin to Nagpur than Nottingham, India opener Vijay batted throughout the day to score an accomplished unbeaten 122, and captain Mahendra Dhoni was 50 not out in an unbroken partnership of 81.

But England's quartet of seamers never lost heart, responding well to a difficult morning as skipper Alastair Cook was rewarded for attacking field placings with quick wickets after lunch and tea.
