Rattling the top order, Bumrah dismissed Keaton Jennings (for a duck) and Jonny Bairstow (6) in first 30 minutes of the morning session. Ishant Sharma provided brilliant support from the other end, dismissing Joe Root (4) with a beautiful in-swinging delivery. After lunch, Mohammed Shami bowled superbly clinching two quick wickets of Jos Buttler (21) and Ben Stokes (23) but Sam Curran along with Moeen Ali took England out of trouble with a brilliant 81-run partnership. Post Ali's departure, Curran stitched another 63-run partnership with Stuart Broad for the ninth wicket to take England past 200-run mark. With the support from the lower middle order Curran to England to a respectable 246 before the team got all-out. For England, Sam Curran (78) was the highest scorer for the team.

14:40 IST: Here's a look at the pitch.
14:30 IST: We are 30 minutes away from the toss.
14:15 IST: It's a bright and sunny morning on Day 1 of the fourth Test in Southampton.
14:00 IST: Hello and welcome to the live match updates of Day 1 of the 4th Test between India and England.
On the other hand, England, who won their last encounter against India in Southampton by 266 runs, head into the fourth Test fretting over Jonny Bairstow's fitness. The wicket-keeper batsman broke a finger during the third Test at Trent Bridge and the hosts are still to consider whether they need to bolster their fallible top order. If Bairstow is ruled out completely, James Vince is set for an England recall on his home ground, with one-day wicket-keeper Jos Buttler taking over behind the stumps as happened during the third Test.
With a green-top laid out for the fourth Test, India will once again count on their pacers, who exposed the frailties in England top-order and accounted for 38 out of 46 wickets in the series so far. With the batsmen also finally coming to the party, there is little chance of tinkering with the playing XI. India have yet to field the same side for two consecutive Tests under Kohli's captaincy.
But that could change following a dominant display in Nottingham where, for the second match of the series, Kohli scored exactly 200 runs, including a century, having achieved the same feat in the first Test at Edgbaston. Ravichandran Ashwin's fitness continues to be a concern for India. He played through a hip stress during the Nottingham Test. So, Ravindra Jadeja has been gearing up with both bat and ball, hoping for a first call-up in this series just in case Ashwin isn't available at toss time.
