Nottingham: The first cricket Test here ended in a draw as India took a massive 430-run lead after they made 391 for nine in the second innings against England on the fifth and final day against England here Sunday.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was batting on 63, his second half-century of the match, and Mohammad Shami four, when both the teams decided to settle for a draw.
Stuart Binny struck a match-saving 78 on his debut when India were in deep trouble midway into the morning session as Virat Kohli (8), Ajinkya Rahane (24) and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (11) were dismissed in quick succession with the visiting side 145 runs ahead and just four second innings wicket in hand.
India, however, continued to bat and declared their second innings at 391 for nine. The two sides then decided to end the match.
The two sides now move to Lord's in London for the second of the five-match Test series, which begins on July 17.
