India vs England: India dismisses England for 287 in first innings

Indian Test triumphs in England Part 6 Ajinkya Rahane Ishant Sharma lord it over at Lord’s England make history, become first to play 1000 test matches

Hoping that Virat Kohli wins the ongoing Test series against England, former Pakistan captain Mushtaq Mohammad reckons the Indian skipper is a kind of player who would be very hard to deal with for any captain. Ashwin too was crucial, picking 3/59.

Virat Kohli single-handedly kept India in the first Test with his maiden hundred in England but the captain would still rate the memorable knock second to his 141 in a lost run-chase against Australia in Adelaide nearly four years ago.

He finally reached his hundred by steering a Ben Stokes delivery to the right of backward point to notch his maiden Test ton in English soil and 22nd overall.

Early on day 2, Sam Curran's wicket was taken by Mohammed Shammi to end England's innings at 287 runs. Ashwin sent back Cook for 0 with a dismissal similar to the first innings.

WICKET! India are celebrating and Joe Root is content walking away.

Kohli proceeded to dominate the bowling with a variety of shots to the boundary.

Upon bringing up his hundred, the 29-year-old let out a triumphant roar and kissed the wedding ring he wears around his neck, gesturing to the stands at his wife.


Kohli's innings is worth its weight in gold simply because of the situation the team was in. India were at a hard position at 169/7 when Ashwin went back to pavilion after just 10 runs.

Cook's opening partner Keaton Jennings had been dropped on nine off Ishant Sharma at fourth slip, by Ajinkya Rahane diving in front of his captain Virat Kohli at third. Sixth ball fetches WICKET!

"It just happens to be the ball before I got out and suddenly there's a huge sort of hoo-ha about a pigeon". English new ball bowlers in Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad and first change Sam Curran tried to pitch the ball as full as possible in order to extract some swing.

Additionally, they looked to rotate strike as much as possible, going for quick singles even if this approach looked risky from the outside.

Curran is an exceptionally promising all-rounder but he was certainly not guaranteed a place in the XI and may not have featured if England had more faith in the fitness of Mark Wood and Chris Woakes. I could have said no, there's no hard feelings, we've just got to move on with it. He still struggled to read which way Anderson was swinging the ball and the pace bowler found the edge of his bat four times.

Curran made it a quick triple blow as Dhawan was caught at second slip in the 16th over.

His nemesis on the previous tour, James Anderson, tested him to the hilt but this time Kohli came out on top.
