England v India: Highlights from day four at Trent Bridge

England v India: Highlights from day four at Trent Bridge

With 23 centuries under his belt, Kohli now has equalled Virender Sehwag (India), Kevin Pietersen (England), Justin Langer (Australia), Steve Smith (Australia) and Javed Miandad (Pakistan), who have 23 centuries each to their names.

In Virat's case, it was Cheteswara Pujara, who scored a gritty 72 off 208 balls.

But Ben Stokes (1/30) broke the partnership by cleaning up Rahul in the 12th over. Back of a length round the wicket and outside off stump. At Trent Bridge his excellent first innings 97 was followed by a quality Test innings of 103 ― to take his match total to 200 runs on the dot for the second time in the series, surely the only time this has ever been achieved in Test cricket.

England have lost Keaton Jennings and Alastair Cook with Ishant Sharma delivering the early blow for India.

Cook edged paceman Ishant Sharma to give Pant an easy first Test catch.

On the very first ball of the next over, Bumrah removed Jennings caught behind as well.

England also have another keeping option in Ollie Pope in their side.

Kenyans woken up by prayers as Muslims celebrate Eid Al Adha
As per the holy book of Muslims, Prophet Ibrahim was asked to sacrifice his dearest one which was his son, Ismail. There are also community-led celebrations in areas such as parks where Muslims gather to celebrate together.


Watch the pick of the action from day four of the third Test. First, he had Root caught at second slip with Rahul getting his fingers under the ball in time for the TV umpire to rule in his favour.

Stuart Broad survived the hat-trick ball but was out for a duck all the same, the left-hander plumb lbw to a Pandya inswinger.

Pandya's 28-ball effort was the second-quickest five-wicket haul for India in Test cricket after Harbhajan Singh took a fiver off 27 balls against West Indies in 2006.

Only Jos Buttler´s 39 kept India at bay and denied Kohli the chance of enforcing the follow-on.

In another life Kohli might well have been an accountant, such was the precision with which he is scoring his runs technically as well as numerically against England. The breakthroughs though came earlier than the visitors would've expected. They batted slowly throughout the session adding only 70 runs to the team's overnight total of 124.

Pandya, now starring with the bat, extended India´s lead to 500 with a straight six off leg-spinner Adil Rashid and he had made a run-a-ball 52 not out when Kohli finally called a halt.
