England reduced to 4-57 against India

On Tuesday, Indian pacers had a long batting stint, albeit Jasprit Bumrah didn't pad up at all.

Kohli needed 6 runs before the start of this Test match to reach the milestone and he got there with a boundary off James Anderson in the 22nd over of India's first innings on Day 2. "It was just about capitalising on the big moments during the Test match", said Kohli of his side's success at Trent Bridge.

Kohli already represents India in Tests, one-day internationals and Twenty20s and plays in the Indian Premier League and said he did not want to be "a testing sort of cricketer for any new format". The commentators named the ball as "Boomerang Swing".

The decision was reviewed and it was found out that Bumrah had overstepped.

England opener Keaton Jennings, with few runs in the series after being recalled into the side, was thus waiting for another delivery to be angled across the left-hander but was left dumbfounded as one pitched and came in late to rap him plumb in front for a duck.

Bumrah, Ishant Sharma (1/11 in 11 overs) and Hardik Pandya (1/37 in 6 overs) shared the spoils as the English top-order looked clueless against a sustained lateral movement generated by the trio. The pick of the bowlers was Jasprit Bumrah who picked up three wickets.

Ben Stokes, who was brought into the attack only in the 43rd over of the innings, was causing the Indian batsmen trouble.

Batsman Ollie Pope is left out and seamer Chris Woakes is ruled out with a thigh injury.

But Buttler went hard at an early-afternoon drive and edged Mohammed Shami's outswing for Virat Kohli's second fine slip catch.

When Alastair Cook fell half-an-hour before lunch steering a wide one to Virat Kohli at third slip off Hardik Pandaya, the home side limped towards the interval with wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant dropping a hard chance from Jos Buttler. After his third over, Pandya didn't look in good nick and was the costliest of the Indian bowlers. It was young Sam Curran who was the thorn in India's flesh as he scored 78 runs and was the last person to be dismissed. Eventually, on the brink of Tea, he was trapped leg before by Moeen Ali, as England went into the break on a high. Broad was rewarded for his homework against the right-hander, who averages 36.27 to one nipping away off the seam, but just 17.07 against one coming back in.

That was still an unconvincing total but a vast improvement on what seemed likely before Curran and Moeen's seventh-wicket stand of 81, on an opening day which ended with India's reply on 19 without loss. Like a boxer who remembers he is allowed to block his opponent rather than just getting repeatedly punched in the face, India suddenly find themselves very much back in this fight - but must do not forget to keep the same discipline that saw them triumph in Nottingham. For a fast bowler, having to bowl an extra delivery is also tiring work.
