Alastair Cook speaks after day one of the third Test against India.

England reached 247 for two by the close of play at Hampshire’s Ageas Bowl, with Cook returning to form with a fine 95.

He made the most of a drop by Ravindra Jadeja on 15 but came up five runs short of a timely century.

Regardless, the south coast venue gave the England skipper a standing ovation.

Gary Balance did notch a ton, though, reaching stumps unbeaten on 104.

He will resume tomorrow morning, with Ian Bell 16 not out.
