India vs England: Ajinkya Rahane Says Partnership With Virat Kohli Was Crucial

Virat Kohli Pleased With Training Session Says

Indian skipper Virat Kohli once again guided his side from the front as visitors put up 307 runs for the loss of six wickets till stumps on the first day of the third Test match.

There a moment of concern for England shortly after tea when Stuart Broad, taking his mark at the Radcliffe Road End, was stung on the lip by a wasp.

However, typically of a player who gravitates towards the big moments of matches, he did have a key role in the dismissal of the India captain on 97 during the final session, Kohli missing out on a second century of the series after he edged the leg-spinner Adil Rashid to Stokes at slip.

Prior to reaching the UK, India had a glorious opportunity to defeat two heavyweights in England and Australia in consecutive away Test series.

BOWLED! Stuart Broad gets the first wicket of the Day 2 after Rishabh Pant chops it back onto the stumps. But it's the second reason which makes his inclusion even more exciting - Delhi's 20-year-old southpaw explosive batting style down the middle-order like former Australian great Adam Gilchrist.

Woakes took three wickets during a productive morning spell that gave England the upper hand. Though there are talks around Karthik's finger injury but team management was eager to cash in on Pant's good form with bat for India A in an unofficial Test against England Lions earlier this summer as well in the last 18 months.

Kohli averaged 60 in the first two Tests, yet not one of his team-mates managed to post a single score in excess of 33. They've scored at a good rate too.

That left Anderson on a hat-trick when he next bowls in this match. India back on track and critical times begin for England.

If England thought Kohli's exit would spark an India collapse, they were frustrated by Pant and Pandya, the latter dropped by Keaton Jennings at third slip after gloving Broad. With hindsight, I think India have got the wrong team. I've seen him in the IPL and he'll just come out and play. Pacers Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami, along with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin are guaranteed to feature in the bowling department.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing how the England batsmen play when the opposition has a good score on the board".

James Anderson gets a couple of wickets in the last over.
