While all the focus was on the James Anderson-Virat Kohli’s showdown, this moment could be the second-best moment of the day. The contest happened but it was a day that belonged to Kohli, he stamped his authority by notching up his first hundred on English soil. The best part about this knock was that he never lost his cool even as he kept missing balls. This is one hundred that has to be right up there amongst his best ever. He also showed the maturity to bat with the tail and England’s Dawid Malan would be kicking himself for putting down his catch, when he was on 22.
India was in trouble at 100/5, but Virat Kohli was there to see India to a position of command. Once he got to his hundred, he went to top gear and raced to 149. England started batting in the second inning but lost Cook for a duck. England now leads by 23 runs in the second innings with nine wickets in hand.
