NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) -- Joe Root and James Anderson shared a world record 10th wicket stand of 187 runs on Saturday as England reached 485-9 at lunch on day four of the first test against India, and a lead of 28.

Root, unbeaten on 143, brought up his fourth test century with two consecutive fours off Mohammed Shami at Trent Bridge.

No. 11 Anderson fired his maiden test half century and is unbeaten on 81 from 118 deliveries, including 17 fours. It is his highest batting score, comfortably passing his previous highest 34 against South Africa in 2008.

India's attack toiled on a flat and slow batting wicket, but Shami missed a run out chance from mid on with Root on 92 as he went for a quick single.
