Hello and welcome to our coverage of the India vs England Test series. Today is the first of potentially 25 days of Test cricket for India in England, a first since 1959. India won't want to repeat the results of that tour though - they lost every one of those Tests to England.
There is good news for Stuart Binny, who has received his first Test Cap. That means Dhoni will bat at No. 6, so India already breaking out their mould and doing things different as they look to end a run of 10 Test losses from their last 12 away from home.
There will be a lot of responsibility on the top five in the batting order, but Binny and Jadeja/Ashwin can bat too, so in theory India has batting depth down to No. 8
Binny got his cap from MS Dhoni. Would have been a proud moment for his dad, Roger, who played 27Tests for India and is currently a national selector.
There has been a fair amount of talk in the build up to the match about how the pitches in England have changed thanks to the new drainage systems. While grounds now dry faster, the pitches dry faster too, so there isn't as much help for the seamers as has been the case historically.
That could mean the spinners come in to play more, which would play into India's hands.
Rahul Dravid is already saying the Trent Bridge pitch looks a lot drier than it did three years ago.
Pace has a huge advantage over spin at Trent Bridge though. The seamers average 26 per wicket, the spinners 50.
Rahul says this is a win toss and bat first wicket.
While we wait for the toss, you can read Jigar Mehta's piece on how India needs to go after England's tired seam bowlers.
There is also plenty of pressure on both captains.
Former England captain Michael Atherton reckons India should have played two spinners. That tells you how much conditions in England have changed.
Dhoni has won the toss and India will bat first.
Dhoni: It is a good wicket. Dry, hard wicket. More about the weather than the wicket.
According to BBC's Test Match Special, Rohit Sharma and R Ashwin are not in the playing XI. Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja are. We will get confirmation of that as soon as we can.
For England, Ben Stokes is back in the side at the expense of Chris Jordan.
Play will start in about 25 minutes from now, in case you were wondering.
India XI: M Vijay, S Dhawan, C Pujara, V Kohli, R Jadeja, A Rahane, MS Dhoni, S Binny, B Kumar, I Sharma, M Shami.
England XI: A Cook, S Robson, G Ballance, I Bell, J Root, M Ali, M Prior, B Stokes, S Broad, L Plunkett, J Anderson.
So Rohit and Ashwin paying the price for poor overseas form. Could Rohit Sharma turn out to be India's Mark Ramprakash? Oodles of talent but somehow unable to translate it to the international stage.
On Star Sports, Rahul Dravid saying India's openers have to play according to the conditions. They can't just look at the shining sun and decide everything is going to be fine and play their shots.
Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay are out in the middle.
This is a big series for Vijay. He can silence the doubters with a solid series. He is on strike to Jimmy Anderson.
The first ball is outside off and left alone by a watchful Vijay.
First runs come via the toe end of the bat as Vijay attempted to leave one. The ball runs to the third man boundary instead.
The next delivery takes the edge but runs away to the same area for four more.
There are, of course, three slips in place.
Three boundaries in a row! Full and on the pads and Vijay clips the ball through midwicket.
Stuart Broad gets the new nut from the other end.
Meanwhile Dhawan gets off the mark with a single in to the covers.
Just that single from the second over. That's a bit more like Test cricket.
Which is something India hasn't played since February, so they might take a little time to settle in.
Dhawan leaves one just outside the offstump. Excellent bit of judgement. Very little swing or seam movement so far.
Dhawan clips Anderson through midwicket for three to end the over. India 18/0 after 3 overs.
A short leg in place for Dhawan facing Broad.
Dhawan ducks under a bouncer. He will not be tempted early.
Lots of leaving in that over, which is the first maiden of the innings.
