Ashwin stops the one hit towards him, but can not do anything about the one he dropped short.

Curran (four for 74) took three wickets in eight balls at one stage, but Kohli's crucially was not among them as the India captain instead hit 149 to drag India right back into contention in the first Specsavers Test at Edgbaston.

Before the start of play, Virat Kohli was said to have had an "informal chat" with match referee Jeff Crowe, who reminded the India captain of his responsibilities after his controversial celebration of Root's dismissal on Thursday.

The hosts, playing their 1000th test match, had lost six wickets for 67 runs as they limped to the close on 285 for nine on Wednesday.

The icing on the cake for India in the brief second innings spell was when Ravichandran Ashwin castled former skipper Alastair Cook for a duck.

"Virat did nick a lot of balls outside off-stump that didn't carry as well".

"That century will have given Kohli so much confidence, not just for the rest of this match but for the rest of the series".

Cook was bowled by a terrific delivery from Ravi Ashwin after India captain Virat Kohli had turned to his spinner as early as the seventh over.

He dominated a last-wicket stand of 57 with Umesh Yadav, who made just one, with India just 13 runs adrift at 274 all out.

Most teams would have gone for the draw, but Kohli chose to attack and along with Murali Vijay, the skipper put together a partnership of 185. Whatever happens in this game they've allowed Virat Kohli to go on and get 149. The innings gave India a solid advantage in the first innings and with Indian bowlers performing well, England were beaten by an innings and 36 runs.

Just as the partnership was starting to look ominous, left-arm swing bowler Sam Curran dismissed Pandya with a brilliant yorker.

Eyebrows were raised when England named their team on the day before the opening Test started in Birmingham, and that was not purely because of Adil Rashid's recall. "It's a five-match series and Virat has got off to a flyer with 149 and great players once they get into rhythm, once they get into form and once they get into confidence, they are very hard to stop". However, the entire scenario changed after Sam Curran was introduced into the attack by Joe Root.
