James Anderson claimed three wickets as India closed on 87 for four

Twenty-one-year-old Root, a surprise inclusion for this match which England must at least draw to complete a series victory, rose to the occasion with a determined 229-ball knock in an England total of 330.

Anderson (three for 24) has been reliable and often expert all tour - and after he induced an India wobble to 87 for four at stumps, the value of Root's fine effort was apparent.
