England All Out For 287 On Day 2

Kohli's expertise in shepherding the lower order included a maddening final-wicket stand of 57 with Umesh Yadav - the No 11 contributed one run - and allowed the India captain to bring up three figures; the landmark was celebrated by kissing his wedding ring and pointing up to his wife, the Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, in the pavilion.

Kohli proceeded to dominate the bowling with a variety of shots to the boundary.

But Curran returned to have Pandya lbw for 22 with an inswinging yorker.

The opening duo of Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan got the visitors off to a good start with Dhawan looking the more risky of the two despite some good bowling by Stuart Broad and James Anderson.

The opener managed only to push the ball down into his crease off back-foot defence, then onto his foot before it trickled back onto the base of the stumps.

Earlier, Curran's wicket-taking burst began when Murali Vijay (20) was lbw on review.

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

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.

Additionally, they looked to rotate strike as much as possible, going for quick singles even if this approach looked unsafe from the outside. Curran hit the flawless length as first-change bowler and immediately trapped Vijay lbw in the 14th over. Umpire Aleem Dar turned down the appeal but DRS overturned the decision as England finally got their breakthrough.

Things could have been worse as three balls later, Kohli edged Anderson to Jos Buttler at gully with the fielder failing to latch on to a tough chance despite putting in a fine dive. This was after India quickly wrapped up the English innings, who lost their last seven wickets for a mere 71 runs.

Ravichandran Ashwin, who ended the day with four wickets, inflicting the bulk of the damage for the visitors. English pacer Sam Curran dismissed 4 Indian batsmen, while Ben Stoke, James Anderson and spinner Adil Rashid bagged 2 wickets each.
