KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Kohli's contribution is the second highest for any India captain in a completed Test innings and also the second highest for any visiting captain in an innings in England.

Kohli's last trip to England was not a success.

India lost its third wicket on 59 in the form of Shikhar Dhawan who scored 26.

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

England will hope Jos Buttler will be able to bat on Friday after he went to the hospital during the lunch interval for an X-ray on his left middle finger, which he injured while fielding. He could score only 134 runs in 10 innings with at a low average of 13.4.

MORNING SESSION: England were only able to add two more runs to their overnight score.

With England's pace bowlers running through India's much vaunted top order to leave them reeling on 100-5, it was left to captain Kohli to string together a series of partnerships as he seemed to be on a one-man mission to overhaul England's first innings total of 287.

The first round of U.S. sanctions on Iran goes into effect in August, followed by ones targeting Iran's oil exports in November. US President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted a strongly-worded warning to his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani .

Joe Root´s run out by opposing captain Virat Kohli sparked an England collapse against India on the opening day of the first Test at Edgbaston on Wednesday and may have set the tone for the series after the tourists´ skipper gave him a colourful and controversial send-off.

Gundappa Viswanath (1880), Dilip Vengsarkar (1589), Kapil Dev (1355), Mohammad Azharuddin (1278), Vijay Manjrekar (1181), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (1157), Farokh Engineer (1113), Cheteshwar Pujara (1061) and Ravi Shastri (1026) are the Indian batsmen who have scored 1000-plus runs against England.

A streaky four off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin saw the 27-year-old Root, in his 127th Test innings, to the 40 runs he had needed to reach 6,000.

Undone by the skill and swing of James Anderson, Kohli endured a nightmare tour in 2014 and had a point to prove this time around, despite playing down the importance of the series on his career in his pre-match press conference. Even over the last 12 to 18 months, I have spent a lot of time back home playing club cricket and I've been working on simplifying my action a bit, (to) make sure that I get more body into the ball and try and create something in the air.

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