Virat Kohli completes 1000 runs against England with a ton

India Vs England England All Out For 287 On Day 2

A fluent half century by skipper Virat Kohli guided India to 160 for six at tea on the second day of the first test, even as England's bowlers kept up the pressure on Thursday.

It looked as if the day might belong to Sam Curran when the 20-year-old Surrey left-arm swing bowler, in just his second match at this level, removed India's top order with a spell of three for eight in eight balls en route to Test-best figures of four for 74 in 17 overs.

On his own performance, which included three wickets in eight balls to make the morning England's, Curran said: "Personally it was pretty special".

Resuming at 76 for three after lunch, the visitors quickly found themselves on the back foot as all rounder Ben Stokes picked up two wickets to leave India reeling at 100-5 and trailing England's first innings total by 127 runs.

England were 285-9 at stumps on day one.

Dawid Malan drops Virat Kohli off Jimmy Anderson.

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.

All-rounder Stokes appeared to surprise Ajinkya Rahane (15) with a sharply lifting delivery that the batsman steered to Jennings, still at third slip.

That was the last delivery of the over and the next ball saw all-rounder Hardik Pandya missed on nought when Cook dropped a routine first-slip chance off Stokes.

Behind Root as he stormed off, Kohli then celebrated by blowing a kiss, mouthing some fruity advice, putting his finger to his lips and adding a "mic-drop" mime - mocking Root's gesture last month, after clinching the one-day worldwide series at Headingley with a second successive hundred.

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

England, who won the toss, would have been disappointed at being dismissed for under 300 as they marked their 1,000th Test with an all-too familiar batting collapse.

Off-spinner Ashwin, belying his reputation as a poor performer outside the sub-continent, took four for 62 in 26 overs.
