India vs England: India dismisses England for 287 in first innings

I don't agree that one particular bowler might be able to target a certain batsman Broad

Virat Kohli scored a gritty 149 to rescue India and leave the intriguing first Test finely balanced as England were left to rue several missed chances before they ended the second day 22 runs ahead on Thursday.

Joe Root's men seemed to be edging their rivals but Kohli has them back in the game.

Root was looking set to get a big one but a brilliant piece of fielding from Kohli saw the right-hander getting run-out for 80.

Cook had not registered a run when Ashwin lined a ball up on middle stump, only to send it past the Englishman's bat and into off stump.

SAM CURRAN blew away India's top order as he lit the blue touch paper for a thrilling day's cricket at Edgbaston in which Virat Kohli defied England with a superb century.

But Manafort, according to prosecutors, hid the existence of his offshore accounts from his own tax preparers and bookkeepers. Opening remarks by Manafort's lawyer, Thomas Zehnle, gave an indication of his defense tactic - singling out Gates.

The icing on the cake for India in the brief second innings spell was when Ravichandran Ashwin castled former skipper Alastair Cook for a duck.

Earlier, England resumed from 285-9 overnight and Mohammed Shami found Curran's edge to complete the hosts' collapse from 216-3 to 287 all out.

AFTERNOON SESSION (India 160-6, England 287): What a session that was, it was Test cricket at its best - high drama, tension and sporting intensity.

"That century will have given Kohli so much confidence, not just for the rest of this match but for the rest of the series".

Curran was not upset about the dropped catches. Whatever happens in this game they've allowed Virat Kohli to go on and get 149.

The aircraft vanished on March 8, 2014, when it was on its way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board. But that search was called off after failing to locate the plane while scouring 125,000sq km of the Indian Ocean.

But one positive for the tourists to grab hold off while they bite into their cucumber sandwiches is the fact that Virat Kohli is still at the crease on 53 not out. Curran removed three batsmen in eight balls in the morning session - Murali Vijay (22), Lokesh Rahul (4) and Shikhar Dhawan (26).

But it might have been different story had not Malan dropped Kohli in the slips off James Anderson and Ben Stokes when the star batsman had made 21 and 51. Karthik had dropped Curran on the opening day off the same bowler.

Vijay was solid as usual, leaving the ball well, while Dhawan looked to play down the ground.

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.

With the ball, he bagged 79 wickets in Tests, including three fifers.
