India vs England: Only thinking about making a comeback: Virat Kohli

May JohnsonAug 14, 2018

Anderson, who took his 100th Test wicket at Lord's earlier in the day, returned to dismiss Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami. There had been a lively spell at the start of India's second innings at Edgbaston, but that was about it. In fact, his most notable moment came in India's first innings when, at mid-on, he was completely flummoxed by an R Ashwin leading edge that lobbed straight over his head.

When Kohli looked as if he would single-handedly lead India to victory on day four of the same Test, it was the turn of Ben Stokes to perform, backing up the masterful display of swing bowling he'd produced during India's first innings. In the first match, three of them were in the playing XI but following a poor performance both with the bat and in the field the team management left Shikhar Dhawan out of the playing XI. Any worries about England's strength in depth for now sated by performances with the ball that have seen India only manage totals of 274, 162, 107 and 130 in their four innings so far.

Ultimately as anyone who paid even a fleeting moment's notice to the second Test could tell you, everything worked out all right for England, Woakes coming in, bowling beautifully and making 137 not out as well. James Anderson (4-23) once again toyed with the opposition, taking his match tally to nine, and equally effective was Stuart Broad (4-44).

Barring captain Kohli, none of the top-order batsmen have found ways to survive, let alone score runs in the first two Tests. Thereafter, he faltered to take India home when they were chasing 194 runs in the fourth innings. As expected the T20 series was very close one with India sealing it in the final match of the series while England bounced back in the one-dayers winning the first and the third ODIs.

Saudi says no room for mediation in Canada row
The crucified man, Elias Abulkalaam Jamaleddeen, stood accused of murder, theft, and attempted rape, according to Bloomberg . The Saudi government announced Sunday it is withdrawing its ambassador to Canada and freezing all new trade and investment.

That partnership helped England recover from a top-order collapse that saw them slump to 89 for four at lunch on the third day.

The two-member committee is also keen on talking to the senior national team selectors, headed by former India wicketkeeper MSK Prasad, about the some of the selection procedures.

"We will not sit around and say that we didn't have the best of conditions".

As much as Virat Kohli is revered and will be remembered as one of the finest batsmen to grace this game, he'll also be remembered as a captain who didn't play an identical XI in two consecutive games for 37 games and counting, and also as someone who made some interesting choices! They not learning from mistakes has been very disappointing to watch. "Hope they have the confidence and mental strength to comeback from this". "Looking at things now, the weather was so unpredictable, I think we got the combination a bit off".
