Moment of magic from Kohli stops England in its tracks

Moment of magic from Kohli stops England in its tracks

Kohli's animated celebration of Root's run out was a response to the England skipper's "mic drop" gesture during the ODI series, when he had dropped his bat dramatically to celebrate his hundred.

134 - When Kohli went past that figure, he bettered his paltry 2014 tour aggregate on his only previous Test visit to England. The second highest scorer in the innings was Shikhar Dhawan's 26. One more success would have put him out on his own as the youngest bowler ever to take a five-wicket Test haul for England.

Jennings left after the lunch break scoring 42 runs. After England, Australia have played the most Test matches (812), followed by West Indies (535), India (523), South Africa (427), New Zealand (426), Pakistan (415), Sri Lanka (274), Bangladesh (108), Zimbabwe (105). In fact, his total beat the combined scores in his 10 previous innings in England from India's five-test tour in 2014.

England were dismissed for 287 when Mohammed Shami got rid of Sam Curran in the second over of the day.

Root top-scored with 80 before falling run out.

He looked like the trophy-hoisting Tiger of old when he violently extricated a short-iron shot from a fairway bunker on the 10th. Woods, who shot 66 on Saturday, is paired with Molinari, two groups behind the final twosome of Spieth and Xander Schauffele .

Joe Root´s run out by opposing captain Virat Kohli sparked an England collapse against India on the opening day of the first Test at Edgbaston on Wednesday and may have set the tone for the series after the tourists´ skipper gave him a colourful and controversial send-off.

It remains to be seen whether match referee Jeff Crowe takes the same view, or decides instead some censure is in order for Kohli.

Particularly the hour either side of lunch when you had Sam Curran announcing himself with three quick wickets, James Anderson in the middle of a great spell of bowling - at Virat Kohli - and all kinds of things happening.

India's last two wickets added 92 runs before Kohli was finally last man out after he misjudged leg spinner Adil Rashid's delivery and was caught by Stuart Broad at point. English cricket team finished the day one with 285 for the loss of nine wickets. You can have a bit of a bounce but if the pace is not right, the batsmen will get a lot of time to play the same ball on the front and the back foot.

After getting off to a decent start with the Indian openers chalking up a half century partnership, the visitors were rocked by three swift strikes by the 20-year-old swing bowler who is playing in his only second test match.
