Whatever happens in this game they've allowed Virat Kohli to go on and get 149.

Further, the Indian skipper also gave her a flying kiss as she was seen sitting in the stands.

And after passing 100 he turned the screw, adding another 57 runs with the tail to take India to within parity of England's first-innings total. In one innings, the India captain scored more than he managed in ten innings during the 2014 Test series in England.

It was the second time in the match that Ashwin had dismissed Cook, England's all-time leading Test run-scorer, this way.

After Malan put down a tough one-handed chance at second slip, Kohli settled then targeted Curran, first clipping him through mid-wicket then angling him down to third man.

But the now 29-year-old India skipper surpassed that total in one innings with a knock of 149 during the second day's play of the series opener at Edgbaston.

India vs England: Animated Virat Kohli Celebrates Root's Dimissal With Mic-drop Gesture

Kohli swooped on the ball and beat Root's dive at the non-striker's end with a pinpoint shy, before mimicking Root's own actions in the decisive ODI at Headingley last month, when he marked his series-winning century with a rapper-style "mic-drop" of his bat.

Broad plays the first ball towards deep point for a single.

Two more Indian batsmen departed, with Ben Stokes taking the wickets of Ajinkya Rahane (15) and Dinesh Karthik (0) in consecutive overs, but Kohli just about survived.

Booed by the crowd when he came out to bat, Kohli left to applause from the England fielders and fans alike. He stitched together a 48-run partnership with Pandya and then 21 for the seventh wicket.

Curran is an exceptionally promising all-rounder but he was certainly not guaranteed a place in the XI and may not have featured if England had more faith in the fitness of Mark Wood and Chris Woakes. It then got even better for England as Curran, who was just four when his bowling partner Anderson started playing for England, had Dhawan (26 )caught behind by Malan.

India have always been criticised for their poor close catching but England, with the tourists still on 100 for five, dropped two slip chances of their own, with Malan reprieving Kohli off Anderson.
