Mumbai: England won a crucial toss against India and decided to bat first, a decision which turned vital for the visitors when their opener Keaton Jennings slammed a brilliant ton on his debut in the Mumbai Test, being played at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.

England skipper Alastair Cook opened the batting with debutant Jennings, who had an outstanding County 2016 season, and added 99 runs for the first wicket. Cook lost his wicket to Ravindra Jadeja in his very first over in the match after scoring a good 46.
