India fought out an arduous stalemate with England in the first Test at Trent Bridge, surviving a brief scare in the morning session on Day 5 to ensure the series will head to Lord's all square.

Winning the toss and electing to bat on the opening morning, MS Dhoni's side compiled an imposing 457, led by a superb century from Murali Vijay.

Seemingly on track for a decisive victory after having England on the ropes at 202-7 in reply, the visitors were forced to watch Joe Root and James Anderson put on a record 198-run partnership for the 10th wicket, topping the stand put together by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami. 

On an utterly lifeless Nottingham pitch, England were then unable to capture the necessary wickets in India's second innings to push the match towards a result; the tourists finishing on 391-9 when the game was called off on Sunday afternoon.

Across the following slides, we rate the performances for each Indian player at Trent Bridge.
