Mumbai, Nov 24:  England spinners claimed four wickets in the first session on day two to bundle out India for 327 in their first innings in the second Test at the Wankhede Stadium here today.



While Graeme Swann took three out of four remaining wickets after India resumed at the overnight total of 266 for six, Panesar chipped in with one to finish with impressive figures of five for 129, his first five-wicket haul against India anywhere and 11th overall.

India got out 22 minutes before lunch and at the break, England were seven for no loss with captain Alastair Cook (4) and Nick Compton (3) at the crease.

India added 61 runs today morning to their last night's total with off-spinner Swann (4/70) sending back Pujara, Harbhajan Singh (21) and Zaheer Khan in the space of 10 balls spread over three overs. Panesar dismissed Ravichandran Ashwin for a well-made 68.

The last four wickets of India added 158 runs and helped them bounce back from 169 for six yesterday with Cheteshwar Pujara scoring a superb 135.

England finally managed to dismiss Pujara for the first time in this series. He was the ninth batsman to get out at 316 after batting for almost the entire day yesterday and with just half an hour left for lunch today.

Pujara's seven-and-a-half hour vigil saw him facing 350 balls and laced with 12 boundaries.

The 24-year-old Pujara had scored an unbeaten 206 in India's first innings total of 521 for 7 declared in the first Test at Ahmedabad and then followed it up with 41 not out as the hosts chased 77-run target to win by 9 wickets.

India got off to a slow start on the second day today and added just 27 runs in 17 overs for the loss of overnight batsman Ashwin in the first hour of play.
