Kohli's half century guides India to 160 for six at tea

03 August 2018

India have always been criticised for their poor close catching but England, with the tourists still on 100 for five, dropped two slip chances of their own, with Malan reprieving Kohli off Anderson.

It was an excellent individual performance as wickets tumbled regularly around him, although Kohli received two huge slices of luck when Dawid Malan dropped him at second slip on 21 and 51.

It took Virat Kohli one innings - or 172 deliveries, to be exact - of the ongoing India vs England Test series to make a statement.

Ashwin (4/60) registered his best figures in Test cricket across South Africa, England and Australia as the hosts lost six wickets for 69 runs in the final session of play to find themselves in a precarious position after opting to bat.

Ben Stokes then got in on the act to remove Ajinkya Rahane (15) and Dinesh Karthik (0) to collect his 100th Test wicket.

The first of three wickets to fall for eight runs as he side slipped 3-216, Root's misfortune was accompanied by a full-house "send-off" from his opposite number Virat Kohli.

The opening duo of Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan got the visitors off to a good start with Dhawan looking the more risky of the two despite some good bowling by Stuart Broad and James Anderson.

Additionally, they looked to rotate strike as much as possible, going for quick singles even if this approach looked risky from the outside. Curran hit the flawless length as first-change bowler and immediately trapped Vijay lbw in the 14th over. Umpire Aleem Dar turned down the appeal but DRS overturned the decision as England finally got their breakthrough.

Two balls later Curran dismissed KL Rahul for four via an ugly flat-bat drag-on.

Curran made it a quick triple blow as Dhawan was caught at second slip in the 16th over.

He brought up his century off 172 balls, his 22nd in Test cricket and his fourth against England.

India had got off to a solid start in the morning as openers Murali Vijay and Dhawan chalked up a half-century partnership but the visitors were then rocked by three swift strikes by left-arm swing bowler Sam Curran.
