It was a complete lack of application from the Indian batsmen while Sehwag's run-out can be attributed to his partner Gambhir's poor judgement.
The opening duo raced to 45 from 10 overs as Sehwag was found batting with consumate ease scoring run-a-ball before Gambhir's indiscretion ended his innings.
In display of poor communication, Gambhir did not listen to Sehwag's call, as he stood watching the ball while the right-hander almost reached the other end before Samit Patel completed an easy run-out.
The shocker in the 10.1 overs seemed to be a huge blow as India failed to recover from it to find themselves in a tricky situation.
After the departure of Sehwag who was looking fluent during his innings of 23, India struggled with Cheteshwar Pujara, Kohli and Yuvraj who didn't make significant contributions.
In-form Cheteshwar Pujara managed only 16 this time before Monty Panesar's wrong 'un foxed him as it knocked his middle-stump back.
Tendulkar had to walk in just a quarter hour before lunch and was tested by Cook with both spinners as well as pacers.
Gambhir's Test century that has eluded him for nearly three years now didn't come this time as he tried to cut a rising delivery from Panesar which was too close to his body and the thickish edge flew to Jonathan Trott at slip. The left-hander faced 124 balls and hit 12 boundaries.
Kohli was done in by Anderson as the talented batsman edged one to the slip cordon.
At 136 for four, Yuvraj joined Tendulkar and both of them started the repair job. Tendulkar and Yuvraj started off cautiously before taking the attack back to the opposition camp.
Yuvraj hit back to back boundaries -- with one of them an elegant straight drive -- off Swann bringing smiles back in the Indian camp.
