England slump as India strike back in final session

Zaheer Khan Kuldeep Yadav England vs India 2018

England had been well-placed at 216 for three, with Root seemingly on course to score a first Test century since his 136 against the West Indies during last year´s day/night clash at Edgbaston.

The India captain blew his opposite number a kiss, put his finger to his mouth, appeared to summon some choice words - and also reminded Root of his own "mic-drop" gesture after his second successive century had clinched the one-day worldwide series for England.

In total, Kohli has played 14 matches against England - 9 home and 5 away matches (excluding the ongoing Edgbaston Test).

He claimed his fourth scalp later in the afternoon session as India, like England, were bowled out fairly cheaply after an assured start.

Jos Buttler, meanwhile, was back at the ground after the England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed that he had gone to hospital during the lunch interval to have an X-ray on his left middle finger.

England would have been dismissed had Sam Curran (24 not out) been caught behind after edging Mohammad Shami's penultimate ball of the day.

In 2014 in England, Broad was in charge, restricting Rahane to just 41 runs off 139 balls at a humble strike rate of 29.5, while dismissing him three times at an average of just 13.6.

BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND - AUGUST 01: Keaton Jennings of England is bowled by Mohammed Shami of India during the Specsavers 1st Test between England and India at Edgbaston on August 1, 2018 in Birmingham, England.

Twitter reactions:Twitterati is enjoying their time as the pivotal series between England and India came up with the twists from the beginning. Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan looked at ease as they got to 50 without breaking much of a sweat. Low-scoring, as the most exciting Tests are.

But his 11th Test fifty without a hundred since that innings ended in frustrating fashion after a run out involving Yorkshire team-mate Jonny Bairstow.

"I suppose it just happens to be the ball before I got out that there's a huge hoo-ha about a pigeon".

First to go was Vijay (20), plumb LBW to a late inswinger, then KL Rahul (4) played on to leave the tourists on 54 for two. They have scalped nine English wickets after the hosts elected to bat first in their historic 1000th Test. England became the first nation ever to play 1000 Test matches.
