Live: IND Vs ENG 1st Test | Day 4 | Session 1 | Live Scores & Commentary | 2018 Series This Test has been a joy to watch so far. It's been a roller-coaster ride for both the teams. Virat Kohli fought and then Ishant Sharma made sure his captain's efforts bore fruits as he bowled with real purpose to scalp five English wickets. This was the leader of the attack that India had been craving for. But then again, India let go of the advantage. After having England on the mat at 87/7 they allowed the hosts to add 93 runs for last three wickets. This is not to take anything away from Sam Curran who played a fantastic innings of 63 from 65 balls. But it's a perennial problem that India have failed to solve — the lower-order headache. And then the top-order failed again. And then the two batsmen that followed. No doubt they were done in by some brilliant swing bowling from the English pacers but it's another long-standing problem they need to solve. India need 84 runs with five wickets in hand but they have their life insurance in the form of Kohli at the crease. He is again playing beautifully and seems unflustered by what's happening at the other end. The England bowlers will look to make the most of the early conditions and Kohli will be the key for the visitors. Against quality pace bowling, many go into a shell to try and see off the tough period but runs are crucial here and what Kohli will need to do is play his natural game. He has been brilliant with the running between the wickets in this match and he should continue to take those quick singles if not boundaries to make sure the scoreboard keeps ticking and India don't go into a shell. He has been really busy out in the middle which automatically doesn't allow the pressure to build. It frustrates the opposition and this is how he had taken the advantage away from England in the first innings. The other batsmen need to follow suit. They don't need to do anything extravagant. Dinesh Karthik has played well and looked assured at the crease. The duo has built a good little partnership. They need to carry forward the momentum on Day Four. Karthik, along with others, should make sure they stand their ground at the opposite end. Just support Kohli, who will do the rest. India will have to earn those 84 runs and a positive attitude is the need of the hour. The batting coach further said that the youngsters, from both the teams, can learn a few tricks looking at Kohli’s innings. “If the ball is swinging or turning, it poses a different challenge and you need to guts it out in the middle. There were batsmen on either side who did that – Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow and from our side the openers showed a lot of gumption in the first 10-12 overs and then you saw how Virat had to play through various phases where run making wasn’t that easy,” he said. India got off to a good start after bundling out England for 287. Openers Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay stitched a 50-run partnership, after which the wickets started to fell in quick succession, and the visitors were eventually bowled out for 274. Bangar lamented the batting performance for the rest of the team and said that they should have capitalised after a good start. “Once we got a good start, we should’ve capitalised on it. But the openers handled the new ball really well, and the angles that were created by Sam Curran – credit to him that he could create those angles,” he said. With England losing Alastair Cook before the stumps, Bangar said that the match is evenly poised at the moment. “England is used to playing in these conditions and we don’t really play in these conditions too often, but the gap is a mere 18 [13] runs. Definitely, the game is really well placed and the wicket which we got close to the end of day’s play has put the game in a very, very good balance,” he said. He further added that Kohli’s innings has brought the match to an even playfield. “At one stage we were staring down the barrel, and the gap was huge, but because of Virat’s brilliance and the commitment shown by the batsmen around him – maybe those contributions might not look too many from Hardik, Ashwin, Ishant, Umesh – they might not have scored runs, but they stitched together partnerships and supported Virat beautifully. Because of that it’s still even-stevens,” Bangar said. England finished off the second day with a score of 9/1 at stumps, having a lead of 22 runs at stumps. -FP #crictalkslive #indiavsengland #indvseng #teamindia #testseries #livescores #livecommentary #livecricket #crictalks #1stTest

    • Joe root did 'mic' drop gesture to shut critics and media people. But, Egocentric Kohli took it personally and now Root has the last laugh. Root never did 'mic' drop gesture looking at kohli but stupid childish kohli made this thing personal. Total garbage mindset Kohli has just as Indians and indian media. This proved Kohli follows fucked up indian media though he denies it..
