       Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of England's tour of
        India. The first Test at Nagpur is about to get underway in about
        15 minutes. The news from the ground is that Andrew Flintoff has
        won the toss and will bat.
       England  have been severely hit by injuries and are playing two
        spinners, Ian Blackwell and Monty Panesar, after Simon Jones
        retured home with a knee injury. Alastair Cook is making his debut
        and Paul Collingwood has also been included in the X1.
       India are playing four bowlers. Sreesanth is making his Test debut
        and will share the new ball with Irfan Pathan. Anil Kumble and
        Harbhajan Singh are the two spinners in the team.
       Mohammad Kaif, who last played a Test against Sri Lanka at
        Ahmedabad in December 2005, gets a game.
       The players are out in the middle. Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook
        will open the batting for England. Irfan Pathan to begin
        proceedings for India.

       England need just four more wickets to win.

        in a draw after a dramatic push for victory by India.
       England,though, have had the upper hand for most of the Test and
        will be extremely satisfied with their performance. Do stay with
        us for the presentation.
