Ton-up Kohli leads India recovery before England lose Cook

To be considered a truly great Test batsman - he will already be remembered as an all-time legend in one-day cricket - Kohli has to score runs in England.

While a rising ball got a thick edge of Rahane's bat, a handsome inswinger castled Karthik, who was playing a Test match in England after 10 years.

But Kohli took the session by the scruff of the neck, registering his superb century two overs later and then dominating a last-wicket stand of 53 with Umesh Yadav scoring only one run.

Kohli, on the other hand, played a very watchful knock as he looked determined to go big in England.

After England's first innings was wrapped up quickly for a below-par 287, Curran - who was last out for 24 - had the tourists in all sorts of trouble.

Virat Kohli had an "informal chat" with match referee Jeff Crowe ahead of day three of the first Test between England and India to discuss his responsibilities and behaviours as captain, Sky Sports understands. People think that I'm lying, but I genuinely have no idea what people are saying. Kohli survived an arduous spell by James Anderson and Ben Stokes to hold the Indian innings together.

Anderson bowled tidily in the morning but did not break through until late on, when he bowled Ashwin and had Mohammed Shami edging a drive to Malan.

This is the 9th time in 13 innings when R Ashwin has dismissed Alastair Cook.

He will be battling with the likes of Willian , Pedro and Eden Hazard for a spot as one of the attackers behind the main striker. His pace caused Hector Bellerin - of all people - all sorts of problems and he looked incredibly exciting.

They just have a different mentality, a winning mentality in every game and the consistency to do that. Boria Majumdar, a top Indian cricket analyst, also backed Kohli to shine in England.

1 - Virat Kohli completed 7,000 Test runs in global cricket as a captain in just 124 innings. KL Rahul (4) and Shikhar Dhawan were also dismissed in a matter of few balls by Curran as the match suddenly changed directions with India being 59 for 3.

But the introduction of Curran turned the tide in England's favour.

Curran told TMS: "The day had pretty much everything - wickets, runs, good periods, frustrating periods".

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.

Though India limped to 76 for three at lunch, the post-lunch session bought no respite with all rounder Stokes picking up two wickets to reduce the visitors to 100-5.

"We still bowled them out below our total so that's a huge positive".
