India v/s England, 1st Test - Follow Day 3 as it happens

India v/s England, 1st Test - Follow Day 3 as it happens

India claimed the prize wicket of England captain Joe Root as the first Specsavers Test at Edgbaston remained on a knife edge. India fell short by 49 runs, as Kohli made 141. Adelaide remains very special to me. And I had total clarity that we are going for the target. "That was a handsome zone to be in".

"It was hard. I told myself it was important to enjoy this, take it upon me as a challenge to take the team far", said Kohli when asked about his mindset in the middle where the other batsmen struggled. That is what we're here to do: "we are here to compete, we are here to fight and we are going to keep doing that".

Kohli's superb shepherding of the tail took some of the gloss off what was an otherwise impressive performance from the England attack, particularly during a thrilling afternoon session. "It was hard, but I told myself that it's important to enjoy this and take it upon me as a challenge to take the team far and take the innings deep". But in hindsight we would not have been able to bowl at them.

Virat Kohli became the first batsman to score 4 double hundreds in 4 consecutive series.

Salah featured for Egypt but was far from his normal self following his shoulder injury in the Champions League final. Sadio Mane later scored a penalty in stoppage time to give Liverpool the win.

The change in the seasonals has clearly changed the distribution of growth over the course of the year. At that time I noted that first quarter numbers are nearly always below the numbers for the year.

Curran told TMS: "The day had pretty much everything - wickets, runs, good periods, frustrating periods". But, the hosts had no answer to Virat Kohli's brilliant stroke play as he stitched together a 253-run stand with Shikhar Dhawan to guide his team to a commanding position.

"I have to commend the tail as well". I think it was an outstanding effort from them also. We stuck to our plans very well against him, and on another day they would carry. After that, he turned up the screw and scored 49 in quick time to take India close to England's score before becoming the last Indian wicket to fall. However, the prized wicket of Alastair Cook late in the day put the smile back on Kohli's face.

Thereafter, Pandya played the flawless second fiddle, raising 48 runs for the sixth wicket with his skipper, who took full advantage of the life he got on 21 when Dawid Malan dropped him at second slip of James Anderson.

Resuming the second session at a precarious 76/3, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane (15) started on a watchful note, helping India reach the three-figure mark before all-rounder Ben Stokes struck twice to inject further agony in the visitors' dressing room.
