India vs England 2018, 1st Test, Day 2 Live Updates: England added only two runs to their overnight score to fold out for 287 on Day 2 of the 1st Test at Edgbaston. And finally, when England started their second innings on Day 2 they lost the important wicket of Alastair Cook for a 0. It was Ashwin again who got Cook out and then play was called off for the day. England lead by 22 runs. One thing for sure, Dawid Malan would be ruing that catch drop of Kohli on 22. Kohli’s 149 stole the show hands-down.

Ashwin (4/60) registered his best figures in Test cricket across South Africa, England and Australia as the hosts lost six wickets for 69 runs in the final session of play to find themselves in a precarious position after opting to bat. Joe Root (80 runs off 156 balls, 9x4s) scored an unbeaten 41st Test half-century, but the English innings completely got derailed after his dismissal.

At stumps, Sam Curran was batting on 24 with James Anderson for the company. In the final session of the day, India didn’t begin well with England progressing as Jonny Bairstow (70 off 88 balls, 9x4s) brought up his 18th Test half-century off 72 balls. In doing so, he put on 105 runs with Root for the fourth wicket. Root and Bairstow got their runs off only 138 balls as England crossed 200 in the 62nd over and were looking set for a strong total before things unravelled in the oddest fashion.
