Rajkot, Nov 13 (IANS) Chasing a 310-run target, India survived anxious moments before posting 172/6 in their second innings to draw the first cricket Test match against England on the fifth and final day here on Sunday.

India skipper Virat Kohli played a responsible unbeaten knock of 49 runs. He was accompanied by Ravindra Jadeja (32 not out) at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium when the match ended inconclusively.

Spinner Adil Rashid (3/64) was England's most successful bowler in the second innings.

Earlier, England declared their second innings at 260/3, an overall lead of 309 runs, with captain Alastair Cook slamming a fine knock of 130 runs -- his 30th Test century and fifth in India.
