An old hand has combined with a new one to guide India into a dominant position after the first day of the first cricket test against England in Ahmedabad.

Virender Sehwag's 23rd test hundred and an unbeaten 98 from Cheteshwar Pujara in his sixth test sees India enter the second day on 323-4 and eyeing a big first innings total at the Sardar Patel Stadium.

Sehwag put on 134 with Gautam Gambhir (45) for the first wicket and added another 90 with Pujara before he was bowled by offspinner Graeme Swann for 117.

Pujara pushed on and is in sight of his second test hundred. He'll resume later today with Yuvraj Singh, who is on 24.

Swann picked up all four wickets for the tourists and ended the first day with figures of 4-85 from 32 overs.
