Virat Kohli century highlights in England Vs India first Test
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.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan told BBC Test Match Special: “Alastair Cook will be gutted to get out, but the man whose head will be down in England’s dressing room is Dawid Malan.
“It was an easy drop with Kohli on 21. And now the India captain has confidence.
