Root was looking set to get a big one but a brilliant piece of fielding from Kohli saw the right-hander getting run-out for 80.

Just like in the first innings, Ashwin bowled to Cook, the ball dipped, pitched on middle stump, ripped away, missed the front foot prod of Alastair Cook and collected the off stump.

Curran took three wickets in eight balls before lunch to remove Shikhar Dhawan (26), Murali Vijay (20) and Lokesh Rahul (four) in an outstanding display of swing bowling.

Virat Kohli's stupendous knock of 149 runs in the ongoing first Test against England has given India the chance of winning the game out of nowhere.


For India, star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took four wickets while Mohammad Shami took two wickets.

Then new England vice-captain Jos Buttler was lbw for a second-ball duck, pushing forward to Ashwin - and after Ben Stokes poked a catch back at the off-spinner, it was left to Curran and Adil Rashid to limit the damage.

Hoping that Virat Kohli wins the ongoing Test series against England, former Pakistan captain Mushtaq Mohammad reckons the Indian skipper is a kind of player who would be very hard to deal with for any captain.

The India captain was running out of partners, however, as his team chased down England's first-innings total of 287.


Since his century, Kohli has been garnering praise from all over and Harbhajan also joined the bandwagon. A score of 54 for 2 - at which point Kohli had walked in - had become 100 for 5.

When India reached Mumbai for the fourth Test of the five-match series, they were already 2-0 up and skipper Virat Kohli was in tremendous form.

Attention quickly shifted towards a jubilant Kohli, who blew kisses at Root and mimed his opposite number's "mic drop" celebration from the one-day series.

Curran, in only his second Test, bowled intelligently to disrupt India's top order and expose their weaknesses in these conditions.


"It just happens to be the ball before I got out and suddenly there's a huge sort of hoo-ha about a pigeon". He stitched together a 48-run partnership with Pandya and then 21 for the seventh wicket. However, the entire scenario changed after Sam Curran was introduced into the attack by Joe Root.
