England v India: Highlights from day three of first Test at Edgbaston

  • Broad has struggled with an ankle injury since the Test series against Pakistan

India were set a target of 194 to win the first Test with more than two days' play left in the game. Numbers 9, 10 or 11 aren't walkovers anymore, and they can all hold a bat now.

Curran finished with figures of 4/74 and said it was a special day for him.

It was Kohli's brilliance, despite three dropped catches, that rescued India from a precarious situation of 148-6 and 169-7 later. Keaton Jennings edged a ball pitched on off-stump and moving slightly away to second slip. We stuck to our plans very well against him, and on another day they would carry.

Ashwin had bowled Alastair Cook for the second time in the match on Thursday evening, and his obvious threat to left-handers was soon highlighted again. Coming on and taking a few early wickets, I can't really remember it it was so unreal. "But the breeze was pretty good out there, the clouds came in and it started swinging especially when the lacquer came off the ball", Curran said.

Ravichandran Ashwin then removed Alastair Cook for the second time in the match with an absolute peach, nearly identical to the one he bowled to dismiss the veteran English opener in the first innings.


"It was hard. I told myself it was important to enjoy this, take it upon me as a challenge to take the team far", said Kohli when asked about his mindset in the middle where the other batsmen struggled.

Well, he scored 134 in 10 innings in 2014, and now, he has slammed 149 in only one innings to not only mute his detractors but also drag India along to gain parity against the hosts. He stitched together a 48-run partnership with Pandya and then 21 for the seventh wicket. The bowlers feel in the game, the batters feel in the game. "You can see that he's going to play well when he's got that sort of intent, he's got that arrogance about him because he knows he's a little bit if not a lot better than his teammates or anybody else in the world at the moment when he's in this form".

"We've just got to bat big tomorrow, and put India under pressure going into the fourth innings".

"We still bowled them out below our total so that's a huge positive". Whatever happens in this game they've allowed Virat Kohli to go on and get 149.
