Root run out sparks England collapse, controversial Kohli send-off

Introductory images of the 22 yards at Edgbaston show a decent smattering of green which is generally par for the course here

Virat Kohli single-handedly battled against the England bowlers in harsh conditions and scored a scintillating century on the second day of play of the first Tests. India got back in the game as soon as the partnership broke with an outstanding throw from Indian skipper Virat Kohli to run Root out.

Sharma, an Indian actress and film producer, married Kohli in December a year ago.

"If we can come out and be pretty relentless in the way we go about hitting our areas, at some point, you don't actually know what a good score is until both sides have batted", Jennings said. Stokes continued to pester him, as on the next delivery, in the 32nd over, Alastair Cook dropped Pandya at first slip.

With the visiting bowlers seemingly clueless in their attempts to break the partnership, it took a display of supreme athleticism from Indian skipper Virat Kohli to put an end to their 104-run stand and, yet again, deny Root a century.

It was a very straight-forward chance to Malan at slip, off the last ball of what was essentially a 15-over spell from Anderson - a monumental effort - with lunch in between and just one over from Adil Rashid.

Winning the toss, England chose to bat first and despite stitching together a couple of 50-run partnerships and a single 100-run partnership, the Indian bowlers kept chipping in with wickets.

England suffered a frustrating opening hour on the second morning of the first Specsavers Test against India at Edgbaston.

This is the first of a five-match series.

It gets that monkey off his back, that question over whether he can perform in England - a top score of 39 before today - and what a time to do it! It was the all-rounder's 100th Test wicket and evidence, if any were needed, of just what an exciting talent he is.

- Isa Guha (@isaguha) August 2, 2018Since 2000, this is only the 3rd time Indian openers are not separated after the first ten overs in their first innings of a tour played in SENA (SA, Eng, NZ, Aus) countries.

It was nearly an easy-going partnership for the opening duo as they brought up 50 off just 70 balls before the drama began. They have scalped nine English wickets after the hosts elected to bat first in their historic 1000th Test. England became the first nation ever to play 1000 Test matches.
