England's bowlers were made to toil in the morning session on day two of the first Test as India cruised to 410-4.
Resuming 323-4, India were barely troubled as Cheteshwar Pujara and Yuvraj Singh added steadily piled on the pressure in Ahmedabad.
Pujara, on 98 overnight, brought up his second Test century in the fourth over of the session - with his 100 coming off 190 balls - and the 24-year-old remained defiant on 133 by lunch.
Yuvraj added a bit of colour as he progressed to 72 not out, including a couple of crowd-pleasing big hits.
England threw everything they had at India but other than a couple of half-chances they were unable to get the breakthrough they so needed.
The closest they came was with a collection of leg before appeals, against both batsmen. The most convincing was Swann's from only the second ball of the day when Yuvraj missed a sweep without addition to his overnight 24.
