  • Indian Test triumphs in England Part 6 Ajinkya Rahane Ishant Sharma lord it over at Lord’s

The dipping delivery was identical to that of his wicket ball against Cook on day one of the Test. The chase should start soon!

Kohli had scored two hundreds in the game at Adelaide in December 2014 but lack of support led to India losing the game by 48 runs.

Anderson then had Kohli dropped with the score stuck on 100, Malan in the slips the guilty party.

The England skipper was short of his ground following a marvellous piece of athleticism from Kohli, who collected the ball, turned and threw down the stumps in one motion.

India players celebrate the wicket of England's Alastair Cook at Edgbaston on Thursday. Late movement off the ball nicks an edge from Stokes which carries to Virat Kohli at third slip. While it was not clear what the conversation was about, it could possibly have something do with Kohli's celebration after running Joe Root out in the first innings.

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. Hardik Pandya batted really well and Ishant and Umesh too applied themselves at the end. 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. Anderson, Broad, and Curran swung the ball on either side of the wicket, but Kohli marched valiantly to 149 by scoring 22 boundaries and one maximum.

Additionally, they looked to rotate strike as much as possible, going for quick singles even if this approach looked unsafe from the outside. "It was a frustrating partnership, but we've just got to be positive going into tomorrow".

Curran hit the flawless length as first-change bowler and immediately trapped Vijay lbw in the 14th over.

Two balls later Curran dismissed KL Rahul via a flat-bat drag-on.

When India reached Mumbai for the fourth Test of the five-match series, they were already 2-0 up and skipper Virat Kohli was in tremendous form.

This was after India quickly wrapped up the English innings, who lost their last seven wickets for a mere 71 runs.
