BIRMINGHAM – England were nine for one in their second innings, a lead of 22 runs, at stumps on the second day of the first Test against India at Edgbaston on Thursday.

Alastair Cook was out for a duck to what became the last ball of the day when England's all-time leading Test run-scorer, for the second time in the match, was drawn forward and bowled by a superb delivery from off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin that pitched on middle and hit off stump.

Keaton Jennings was five not out.

He was eventually last man out, with India just 13 runs adrift of England's first innings 287.
