Joe Root´s run out by opposing captain Virat Kohli sparked an England collapse against India on the opening day of the first Test at Edgbaston on Wednesday and may have set the tone for the series after the tourists´ skipper gave him a colourful and controversial send-off.

"It is an opportunity missed", Jennings said of England's batting display. Umesh Yadav stuck around for 16 balls, but with Kohli looking for quick runs, even England's fully spread out field could only watch on hoping for luck to turn.

India were 76-3 at lunch, with Virat Kohli (9no) and Ajinkya Rahane (8no) left to try and rebuild an innings that had started brightly before Curran's intervention.

When, in the next over, Dhawan edged Curran to Dawid Malan at second slip, India had lost three wickets for nine runs.

Kohli swooped on the ball and beat Root's dive at the non-striker's end with a pinpoint shy, before mimicking Root's own actions in the decisive ODI at Headingley last month, when he marked his series-winning century with a rapper-style "mic-drop" of his bat.

Trump calls Koch brothers 'total joke,' 'overrated'
The Koch network campaigned heavily for passage of tax cuts that Trump signed into law a year ago and praised his judicial picks. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) in a must-win contest that could decide the balance of power in the Senate during the next Congress.

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.

Ashwin was the only wicket-taker for India in the pre-lunch session, bowling Cook (13) with a ripper in the ninth over. Ashwin then accounted for Stuart Broad (1), lbw too, but Anderson somehow managed to thwart his efforts for a five-wicket haul.

On 97, Stokes dropped short and Kohli leaned back to punch the ball through point for four, before letting out a loud roar in celebration. English cricket team finished the day one with 285 for the loss of nine wickets. But Malan put down the chances, and Kohli made the majority. He bagged four wickets so far. India's figure in that time is just 12. It was once again Curran who got the wicket. What a magnificient day for Virat Kohli and India!

India opened with Shami, and in a surprise move, R Ashwin, hoping the offspinner could do what he did early in England's first innings.
