Graeme Swann has warned that England will have to restrict India’s first innings to below 450 if they are to remain in touch in the opening Test at Ahmedabad.

India reached the close on the first day on Thursday at 323 for four with Northampton-born off-spinner Swann taking all the wickets on a dry surface to keep his side in the game.

Virender Sehwag had looked like he would immediately blow the four-Test series open with a punishing run-a-ball 117 but once Swann spun one past him the tourists battled back.
