NOTTINGHAM, England — India’s Murali Vijay was dismissed for 146 as the visitors moved to 342-5 at lunch on day two of the second test against England at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

Vijay had added 24 runs to his overnight score of 122 when a James Anderson delivery nipped inwards and hit him high on the leg. Umpire Bruce Oxendale gave him out but replays showed the ball would have cleared the stumps. Replay reviews are not being used in this series, consistent with India’s longstanding policy.

Vijay’s wicket was India’s only setback in an opening session in which they added 83 runs to their overnight score of 259.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was unbeaten on 81, having been dropped when on 50, his overnight score, by wicketkeeper Matt Prior off the bowling of Stuart Broad. Prior dived to his right, but failed to grasp the ball with one hand.

Ravindra Jadeja was on 24 from only 18 deliveries, which included a pair of sixes smashed down the ground off Moeen Ali, as India continued to take advantage of a flat wicket that favours batting and gave little encouragement for England’s bowlers.
