The big question at the start of day four of the first India vs England Test at Edgbaston was how much more could Indian captain Virat Kohli do. The answer, just not enough. However, that is not any reflection of Kohli s inability by any account. He had a stellar match compiling 200 runs across two innings – the trouble was rest of Indian batters mustered 214 in the match.

Scorecard | As it happened

England won by 31 runs, registering a big W in their historic 1000th Test with Ben Stokes getting the prized wicket of Kohli for 51, 11th over in to the day. Overnight batsman Dinesh Karthik was undone by James Anderson in the first over itself after which, Hardik Pandya applied himself well to support Kohli.


Pandya was cautious but managed four boundaries, all top quality shots, but the going was slow against a disciplined England attack.
