India had 13 double-figure scores at Ageas Bowl but Ajinkya Rahane's 54 was the highest. They had 11 partnerships over 20 but only three over 50 and none more than 74. A first-innings score of 330 is respectable, but it won't win Tests unless the opposition collapses, and England had amassed 569. The batting problems, however, seem more fixable than the bowling worries.

The challenge for Alastair Cook's team will be to replicate their flawless efforts at Ageas Bowl. England's out-of-form batsmen made runs, two out of the three new players they brought in were successes, and their spinner proved he was no part-timer.


India last played a Test at Old Trafford in 1990, when Sachin Tendulkar made a match-saving maiden century; they have drawn five and lost three matches at the venue. England have won six and drawn two of their last eight Tests in Manchester; their last defeat there was against Pakistan in May 2001.
Anderson had taken 12 wickets at 35.33 apiece in four Tests at Old Trafford, his home ground. His new-ball partner Stuart Broad has only two wickets in two Tests at the venue, at an average of 108.50.
Ian Bell averages 78.57 in six Tests in Manchester. He has 550 runs in ten innings there, with two hundreds. Cook has scored 431 runs at an average of 53.87 at the venue.
