Women’s Test, Wormsley (day one of four):

Sarah Taylor, who made 30, was the only player to score more than 12 as England – asked to bat first after losing the toss – were dismissed in 42 overs.
Nagarajan Niranjana took 4-19 for India before England seamer Jenny Gunn claimed 4-13.
After the four-day Test, the sides meet in three one-day internationals.

“It was good fun to bowl today,” said 28-year-old Gunn, who broke an opening stand of 40 in the first over of a 12-over spell.
“I didn’t want [captain] Charlotte [Edwards] to take the ball out of my hand.
“The key was bowling a bit fuller and pitching it up. With Sarah Taylor standing up to the stumps, she took two great catches.”
This Test is England’s first match since they became full-time professionals in May by giving central contracts to 18 players.
