NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) -- Murali Vijay fired an unbeaten 122 to lead India to 259-4 against England after the first day of the first test at Trent Bridge on Wednesday

Extending his fourth test century, Vijay finished a good opening day for India at the crease with captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was 50 not out.

James Anderson was the leading bowler for England, with 2-70. He made the only breakthrough in the first session, removing Shikhar Darwan for 12, and dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara for 38 after lunch thanks to a brilliant one-handed catch at silly mid-on by Ian Bell.

Stuart Broad followed that wicket by removing Virat Kholi on 1 in the next over, and Liam Plunkett dismissed Ajinkya Rahane, who toe-ended a short ball to silly point, where England captain Alastair Cook took an impressive reaction catch.
