Is Kohli in trouble for 'swearing' at Root?

03 August 2018

England captain Joe Root took Virat Kohli's "mic drop" gesture in good spirit and said the India skipper's mocking imitation of him had added to the spectacle of test cricket.

5 - When the Indian captain scored his half-century, he joined Vijay Hazare (89 in 1952), Mansoor Ali Kahn Pataudi jr (64 in 1967), Ajit Wadekar (85 in 1971) & Mohd Azharuddin (121 in 1990) as the 5th Indian to register a 50-plus in his very first inns as captain in England!

As for his own performance, Curran said: "Personally, it was a pretty special day for me with the ball".

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.

Bottas and Wolff reconcile 'wingman' spat
Bottas did not take kindly to being branded "the flawless wingman" by Mercedes chief Toto Wolff after the Hungarian Grand Prix . After Saturday's qualifying session, Bottas said "we are free to fight, so I'm looking forward to (the race)".

Kohli's drive to improve with every innings sets him apart, said Bangar.

England were 45 for one from 14 overs after the first hour with Keaton Jennings unbeaten on 20 and Root on 11.

Only Cook fell in the first session, his front-foot defence defeated by a ideal off-break from Ashwin - repaying his introduction in only the seventh over, despite being India's sole spinner here, with telling drift from round the wicket before the ball turned and dislodged the off-bail.

"He showed terrific discipline, I felt", added Bangar, a former India batsman.

England will be left to rue their missed chances: they dropped two catches and allowed India's last two wickets to add 92. Then, the way Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav applied themselves, I think it was an outstanding effort from them and I have to give a lot of credit to them for getting us this close. However, Kohli on Thursday turned things around when the right-handed batting genius struck a brilliant hundred under tough circumstances for his team at Birmingham in the first of the five-Test series.

But the now 29-year-old India skipper surpassed that total in one innings with a knock of 149 during the second day's play of the series opener at Edgbaston.

Adil Rashid was introduced in to the attack just before lunch after his controversial return to Test cricket, the spinner starting with a nervous full toss and his one over costing five runs.

In total, Kohli batted for almost five hours, faced 225 balls, including 22 fours and a six. He did not fish too much with deliveries outside the off stump as the fans were treated to a great contest between Jimmy Anderson (22-41-2) and Kohli.

Soon after Kohli completed his fifty he was dropped again by Malan, with Stokes once more the unlucky bowler.
