England vs. India: Virat Kohli class gets India back into the Test

From then on, he added the next 49 runs in brisk pace knowing they had only one wicket in hand.

Upon bringing up his hundred, the 29-year-old let out a triumphant roar and kissed the wedding ring he wears around his neck, gesturing to the stands at his wife.

On the work front, Anushka will soon begin promotions of her upcoming film Sui Dhaaga which also stars Varun Dhawan.

All eyes were on Virat Kohli when he walked out to bat after India lost their second wicket with just 54 runs on the board.

Umesh gets the final wicket, Curran departs but what a knock this from him.

Kohli ended doubts over his ability to score runs in England by leading a great fightback by the tourists on day two of the first Test at Edgbaston.

Dawid Malan (20) and Jonny Bairstow (28) briefly countered, though the former was fortunate not to be given out for 17 when edging Sharma to Shikhar Dhawan at first slip - given not out despite it looking like a clean catch.




After he was the last man out with about 30 minutes left of the day, the India captain was given a standing ovation, with England fans showing their appreciation of one of cricket's box-office talents.

After Rahane (15) and Dinesh Karthik (0) were dismissed in quick succession, all-rounder Hardik Pandya (22) offered some resistance to stitch an excellent partnership with Virat Kohli.

Kohli bettered his game on English soil after having averaged a little over 13 on the last occasion when India toured England. India got off to a near flawless start with the opening duo of Murali Vijay (20) and Shikhar Dhawan (26) putting on a 50-run stand.

Stokes, introduced after lunch, showed why he is such an important part of this England side with an aggressive spell.

Kohli had scored two hundreds in the game at Adelaide in December 2014 but lack of support led to India losing the game by 48 runs.

Two balls later Curran dismissed KL Rahul via a flat-bat drag-on. But the very fact that Kohli plays all three formats so well makes him a more hard player to stop [for any captain]. I could have said no, there's no hard feelings, we've just got to move on with it.

Buttler was injured diving to his left at gully in an attempt to catch Kohli off Anderson, the ball appearing to clip his fingertip, though in a boost for England he was cleared of any major damage.
