England reach lunch with Cook the only casualty

Introductory images of the 22 yards at Edgbaston show a decent smattering of green which is generally par for the course here

England added two runs to their overnight score and were bowled out for 287.

Mohammed Shami needed four deliveries to take the final England wicket.

India captain Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 53 after Dawid Malan twice dropped him at second slip. One more success would have put him out on his own as the youngest bowler ever to take a five-wicket Test haul for England.

Kohli had a disastrous run in the 2014 Test series in England.

This time, however, feels different.

Root top-scored with 80 before falling run out.

It was not an easy start for Kohli. He roared in happiness and removed his wedding ring, which was hanging on his neck, to kiss it. It is also his first Test century in England. Umpire Aleem Dar turned it down, but DRS overturned the decision as England finally got their breakthrough.

Vaughan said: "The great players love the biggest stage".

"You're just a touch short or touch full, so I thought simplifying my action was very important. OK, I'll stick around'".

Apple’s Market Cap Hits $1 Trillion
Since 1980, IBM, Exxon Mobil, General Electric and Microsoft have also alternated as the largest publicly listed U.S. company. The iPhone maker's market capitalisation reached the figure in afternoon trading in NY as its shares rose above $207.

Kohli's performance is pretty impressive at home. It adds to the whole spectacle of Test cricket.

The wickets were ultimately shared around - something that will please England, who have often been reliant on Anderson and Broad. Kohli opened his shoulders late in his knock and finished with a total of 22 fours and a six off his penultimate ball as he successfully hogged the strike to demonstrate his excellent game management.

Things could have been worse as three balls later, Kohli (on 0*) edged Anderson to Jos Buttler at gully with the fielder failing to latch onto a tough chance despite putting in a fine dive.

He claimed three wickets in eight balls as he found some movement.

The opening duo of Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan got the visitors off to a good start with Dhawan looking the more unsafe of the two despite some good bowling by Stuart Broad and James Anderson.

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

India got off to a flier.

Ashwin (4/60) registered his best figures in Test cricket across South Africa, England and Australia as India reduced England to 285 for nine on day one on Wednesday.

James Anderson was the most economical of the English bowlers with 27 runs off 15 overs though he was unlucky not to bag any wickets after an edge off Kohli was dropped when he on 21.
