Ahmedabad test: India back after collapse

India fought back after a collapse to end day one of the final Test against Sri Lanka in Ahmedabad on 247-6. The hosts were reduced to 125-5 at tea as Muttiah Muralitharan and Lasith Malinga took two wickets each. But VVS Laxman hit an unbeaten 71, putting on 86 with wicket-keeper Mahendra Dhoni (49) and 64 with Irfan Pathan (39no) to lead the recovery. India, leading 1-0, were without gastroenteritis victim Rahul Dravid - whose run of 94 consecutive Tests since his debut in England in 1996 was ended. Leg-spinner Anil Kumble became the fifth Indian to play in 100 Tests and would have been delighted when stand-in captain Virender Sehwag won the toss and opted to bat.
