India had a perfect start to their second innings with the ball as premier spinner R Ashwin dismissed England opening batsman Rory Burns off the first ball of the innings. Ashwin, coming round the wicket, generated extra bounce, and as Burns tried to prod at it, the ball took the edge of his bat and went straight to Ajinkya Rahane at slips.
