Kohli Defies English Hopes

Virat Kohli withstood England's bowlers to score a fine 149 and keep India in the game on an enthralling second day in the first Test at Edgbaston.

England were bowled out for 287 before reducing India to 50-3 and 100-5.

Sam Curran took 4-74 and James Anderson and Ben Stokes bowled superbly for two wickets apiece, but captain Kohli dragged India back into the game.

India made 274 before England lost Alastair Cook to the day's final ball as they closed on 9-1 - a lead of 22.

Cook's dismissal - bowled again by a fine delivery from Ravichandran Ashwin - leaves the game in the balance.

England will be left to rue their missed chances: they dropped two catches and allowed India's last two wickets to add 92.

Kohli was put down on 21 and 51 by Dawid Malan but he mixed patience with late aggression to reach his first century in England.


"It was an easy drop with Kohli on 21. And now the India captain has confidence."

Kohli's last trip to England was not a success. He finished the 2014 tour with an average of 13.40 and was undone by Anderson, who dismissed him four times in 10 innings.

This time, however, feels different. His huge celebration when he ran out England captain Joe Root on the opening day was a sign of how determined he is to succeed in these conditions.

It was not an easy start for Kohli. He still struggled to read which way Anderson was swinging the ball and the pace bowler found the edge of his bat four times.
