  • Indian Test triumphs in England Part 6 Ajinkya Rahane Ishant Sharma lord it over at Lord’s

This saw India move from 182/8 to an eventual 274 when Kohli was last out for 149.

Kohli had scored two hundreds in the game at Adelaide in December 2014 but lack of support led to India losing the game by 48 runs.

Behind Root as he stormed off, Kohli celebrated by blowing a kiss, mouthing some fruity advice, putting his finger to his lips and adding a "mic-drop" - mocking Root's gesture last month, after he had clinched the one-day global series at Headingley with a second successive hundred.

Kohli then topped his 2014 series total in the one knock with a two off leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

After restoring parity on day two of the opening Test in Edgbaston thanks to Virat Kohli's stunning century, the visitors will look forward to cut short England's lead on Friday.

After Pandya's departure and till Kohli's dismissal, India scored 126 runs, in which Kohli alone contributed 102 runs, the rest were added by Ravichandran Ashwin (10), Mohammed Shami (2), Ishant Sharma (5) and Umesh Yadav (1) scored a total of 18 runs. Whatever happens in this game they've allowed Virat Kohli to go on and get 149. Cook was drawn forward as the ball pitched on middle stump to zip past him and hit the off stump.

After England's first innings was wrapped up quickly for a below-par 287, Curran - who was last out for 24 - had the tourists in all sorts of trouble.

The polar bear was then shot dead "in an act of self-defence" by the second guard, spokeswoman Negar Etminan said. The first guard apparently did not see the bear, which then attacked him and injured him "on his head".

On Thursday, spectators once again witnessed India's batting order getting collapsed as Virat Kohli fought a lone battle.

Together the right-handers forged an unbeaten 51-run stand for the fourth wicket and guided England safely to the tea break at 163/3.

The diminutive left-armer is not particularly sharp but attacks the batsmen constantly with balls that dart back into right-handers.

Curran gave the hosts a huge boost as he dismissed India's top three batsmen, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and Lokesh Rahul, in the space of nine runs.

It didn't help matters that England lost an early review as Anderson's loud appeal was turned down, with DRS ruling in favour of the umpire's decision.

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.
