Sam Curran leads England's fightback against India

Joe Root added that his side wants to make a serious impact against the world’s number one ranked side

Joe Root and Keaton Jennings of England try to usher away a pigeon during the Specsavers 1st Test between England and India at Edgbaston on August 1, 2018 in Birmingham, England.

From round the wicket, he bowled left-hander Cook - England's all-time leading Test run-scorer - for 13 with an excellent ball that pitched on middle and hit the top of off stump.

Root admitted to immediate regret at dropping his bat to the floor on his home ground last month, and Kohli appeared more than happy to reference it as the Yorkshireman's departure kick-started the loss of six wickets for 67 in the final session on day one of England's 1,000th Test.

In his previous ten Test innings in England, Kohli had made just 134 runs at an average of less than 14.

At the break, R Ashwin (6) was giving Kohli company, while India trail by another 127 runs after England were bowled out for 287 runs in 89.4 overs in their first innings.

After the episode aired, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal condemned Mr Spencer's actions and language on the show. At one point in the show, Spencer yelled the N-word multiple times, with little prompting from the host.

England finished the day with 285 runs for nine wickets in 88 overs.

A awful run-out of Root sparked an England collapse on day one of the first Test.

It was an excellent individual performance as wickets tumbled regularly around him, although Kohli received two huge slices of luck when Dawid Malan dropped him at second slip on 21 and 51.

Dhawan scored 26 off 46 deliveries peppered with some fluent strokes while Vijay made 20.

This is another duo dominated again by the England bowler.

Imran Khan claims victory in Pakistan elections
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) denied the claims, saying a new electronic results system suffered unexpected glitches. Khan acknowledged while speaking to VOA on the eve of the election that the economy is the biggest challenge facing Pakistan.

Fans were fearing the worst, knowing a broken finger could have ruled Buttler out for the remainder of the series, but thankfully he was given the all-clear and returned to the field later in the day.

When Virat Kohli announced his team at the toss of the first Test against England, a collective sigh rang through cricketing parleys.

"I can't see it becoming an issue throughout this game or moving forward, but it makes entertaining cricket for everyone to watch - which is exactly what you want in Test cricket". 50-0 quickly became 59-3 as Curran took three wickets in eight balls, dismissing each of India's top three.

Curran hit the ideal length as first-change bowler and immediately trapped Vijay lbw in the 14th over. Vijay was dismissed after a review.

Lokesh Rahul dispatched his first ball to the boundary but dragged his second from Curran on to his stumps.
