SOUTHAMPTON, England: Scoreboard after England finished at 247/2 after Gary Ballance hit his second consecutive century in the series at stumps on day one of the third Investec test against India at the Rose Bowl here Sunday.
Alastair Cook fell for 95 while Gary Ballance was batting on 104. Ian Bell was also unbeaten on 16 when the stumps were drawn.
It was Jadeja who got rid of the England skipper after frustrating him with a packed leg-side field. Mohammed Shami (1/62) got Sam Robson's wicket but was the most disappointing of the pace trio erring in length on a number of occasions.
