India vs England: Wounds of 2014 hurt Virat Kohli again

For a man who seemed unstoppable even two years ago, Virat Kohli's luck with the bat is completely incomprehensible. The world's number one batsman, who collected hundreds at will, has not scored one hundred in all three formats in 50 innings. India's captain Virat Kohli's fight continue as he was dismissed in the first hour of the first day of 3rd Test against England at Headingley in Leeds. James Anderson sent Kohli back to the pavilion for 7. Lean patches are part of a cricketer's journey. There are likely to be peaks and valleys in performance as the career runs. Every great in the game has had their share of dips and Kohli is undoubtedly facing headwinds after fixing the loopholes in 2014. But it looks like the old habit of dangling the bat outside the off-stump seems to be back and Kohli not for the first time in England, got out swishing at a ball a could have been left alone. This was the fourth time in the series that he had edged the ball behind the stumps. Most dismissals for Kohli against a bowler in TestsJames Anderson - 7 times in 23 matches Nathan Lyon - 7 times in 18 matches Stuart Broad - 5 times in 18 matches Moeen Ali - 5 times in 15 matches Ben Stokes - 5 times in 15 matches Kohli's lean patch began with the 2020 Tour in New Zealand, where he managed 218 runs in four T20Is, three ODI matches and two test matches. In the only Test he played in Australia late last year, his defiant 74 in the first innings was lost in the ruins of the disastrous second innings of the pink-ball Test where India were gobbled up for 36. It was an out of character show from the India captain who spent 244 minutes at the crease for his 180-ball effort. It was also his second slowest half-century. A similar kind of effort would have helped the India cause at Headingley had kohli played the waiting game. With KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara back in the shade. Kohli made the appropriate noises on the eve of the Test by saying "You have to keep your ego in your pocket while batting in England". In his pre & post match discourses , Kohli avoids talking about the individual players form. "Our focus is not thinking about where people are individually now. It's collectively about how much strength they bring to the team. As a batting unit, we look to perform in tough conditions, so we are in a winning positions and someone is going to put their hands in every game." Kohli has maintained when asked about the Pujara and Rahane's ordeals.Also Read- India interested in hosting 2036, 2040 Olympics: IOC President Thomas Bach

Shardul Thakur came on the counterattack on Thursday as he helped India advance to a respectable first innings total on Day 1 of 4 Test against England at the Oval. Shardul hit 57 of just 36 balls while stitching up 63 runs on just 48 balls with tail-ender Umesh Yadav after the top Indian batsman failed to make runs. Shardul Thakur reached fifty with his 3rd six, pulling Chris Woakes to the mid-wicket stand. Shardul celebrated his second test with a lot of swagger as he waved his bat to the dressing room and players stood up to applaud his brave effort. 50 runs in 31 balls, Shardul Thakur broke Ian Botham's record for the fastest fifty in England. Botham had reached the historic milestone with 32 balls in 1986 at the Oval. Notably, this was also India's second fastest 50 in a test match. Kapil Dev holds the record for the fastest fifty by an Indian batsman. He had hit 30 balls 50 against Pakistan in Karachi in 1982.7 boundaries and 3 sixes! Shardul Thakur went after everyone after the tea break and was hitting them hard. He made England pacers feel unsure of their length, as he drove with ease and go on back foot to punish shorter deliveries. Thakur hit 7 boundaries and 3 sixes while attacking England pacemakers. He made fun of the midfielder because he constantly kept finding the boundaries after clearing the player into the ring. Joe Root cut a frustrated figure as Shardul and Umesh expand the total of the India's first innings.India are bowled out for 191.Chris Woakes finishes with a four-for.#WTC23 | #ENGvIND | https://t.co/zRhnFiKhzZ pic.twitter.com/T8eP4jp8EB— ICC (@ICC) September 2, 2021Also Read- England vs India, 2nd Test: India Win Thriller At Lord's To Take 1-0 Series Lead vs England Also Read- Afghanistan cricket get green signal to play their 1st Test since Taliban's takeover, to face Australia in November

Virat Kohli-led India stormed to a 157-run win over England on the final day of the fourth Test to register only their second Test win at the Oval and take a 2-1 unbeatable lead in the five-match series on Monday. Innings defeat in Leeds seems like a distant memory now, as Jasprit Bumrah inspired India to put on an energetic performance and reclaim the series lead with a convincing 157-run win over England on the final day of the Oval Test. England was bowled out for 210 in pursuit of a target of 368 on the final day, succumbing to the constant pressure built up by the Indian bowlers. The visitors recorded only their 2-test win at the Oval and the first after the historic victory in 1971 under Ajit Wadekar.Chasing a daunting victory target of 368, the hosts made a good start with a century opening partnership before India advanced and restricted England's scoring rate with some disciplined bowling. Shardul Thakur made India's first breakthrough by eliminating Rory Burns (50), a ball after hitting half a century and brought up 100-run partnership for the first wicketThe momentum of the match turned to India's way when Dawid Malan was run out for 5 with about 30 minutes before the morning session, trying to make a quick single with Haseeb Hamid. Hamid (63), who got a reprieve on 56 when Mohammed Siraj dropped catch, was the next batsman to go after Jadeja hit the rough patch as the ball spun past his bat to hit the off-stump.Also Read- England vs India, 2nd Test: India Win Thriller At Lord's To Take 1-0 Series Lead vs England Bumrah produced a sensational spell in the 2nd session Jasprit Bumrah removed Olli Pop (2) and Jonny Bairstow (0) in back-to-back overs to turn match in India's favor. Bumrah came up with inswinging delivery to breach Pop's defense and became the 23rd Indian bowler to reach 100 Test wicket landmark. In his next over, he produced a reverse-swinging Yorker at 142 kph that crashing into the base of Bairstow's.

Root-Woakes delay India's victory Joe Root and Chris Woakes, the last English batting player, played some shots during a 35-run seventh-wicket stand to delay India's victory before the England captain dragged a innocuous delivery of Thakur to his stumps to go for 36 and end his team's faint hopes of an unlikely win.
