Panesar, who replaced Anderson, was smashed to the long on boundary by Sehwag off the second ball he faced while Pujara drove him handsomely to the extra cover fence to keep up the tempo.
Broad was replaced by Anderson after a five-over spell and the England pacer was a bit unlucky when Sehwag edged him past the leg stump almost immediately for a four and then edged the bowler wide of the slip cordon for another.
The first hour produced 50 runs in 15 overs and Pujara, who had struck his maiden unbeaten double hundred at Ahmedabad to win the man of the match award, slashed Anderson perilously close to gully fielder when on 17.
However, it was Sehwag who departed for 30 off a full length Panesar delivery that he tried to flick and missed to be bowled.
Sehwag, who had scored a run-a-ball 117 in the Test series opener, fell after facing 43 balls and hit 4 fours in his 73-minute essay. He added 48 runs in 96 balls with Pujara.
Sehwag's dismissal brought in Sachin Tendulkar who looked in good nick, flicking Panesar for a four before the spinner beat with a well-spun ball that pitched in front of the batsman, turned sharply and took the off stump as he tried to turn it to leg.
Panesar, surprisingly left out of the series-opener, proved his worth by sending back the two top Indian batsmen in his sixth and seventh overs to leave the home team struggling at 60 for 3.
Pujara, who looked on bemused from the other end, and Kohli prevented further damage before lunch by adding 27 runs for the fourth wicket. The former even struck Broad for successive fours close to the interval.
Off spinner Graeme Swann was brought on close to lunch to bowl the 24th over when India were 77 for 3 and was immediately driven to the extra cover fence by Kolhi.
