England's Ole Robinson knocked out India's captain Virat Kohli at the end of the first day of second test, calling the precious wicket the greatest of his fledgling career.Fresh from his five-wicket haul in first opening test at Trent Bridge, Robinson cleared Kohli (42) who edged it to Joe Root on the first slip after taking the second fresh ball.Virat is probably mybiggest wicket so far, so I was happy with that. It was a great moment. The plan was always for him to bowl the fourth-fifth stump line, back of the length. Fortunately, the plan worked,said Robinson. After the stumps on Thursday.KL Rahul remained undefeated at 127wielding his bat from the first ball to the end, while his great opening partner Rohit Sharma played fluently before going out for 83, his best score in overseas test to lead India 276-3 on day one after Root opted to bowl. Robinson praised the efforts of opposing hitters for their efforts, but also felt his team was unlucky. "There were probably 10-15 hits and misses that he could count and another day we could have had it two or three earlier."  "We definitely looked at the circumstances and thought we could get some of them early here. I think on another day it (wickets) might have happened. "I felt we did a good performance," he said. "We worked hard against their batters and to be fair they played very well. Dense clouds in the morning delayed the start of the game, as Root was quick to choose a bowling game to take advantage of the conditions, which did not happen. When asked if the field was letting them down, he said: "We expected the field to be a little bit faster, a little bit smoother.’’ Obviously, it's a little bit slow. "The swing was a bit inconsistent; I don't know if it was the ball or the overhead. We decided to swing a bit, which we felt was a good plan, but the wicket was a bit slow on that and not as responsive as we think it might be. " Stuart Broad's absence (a torn calf) meant that Robinson shared the new ball with paceman James Anderson and said he was ready to take on the challenge. "It has been a privilege to share the new ball with Jimmy’’. I have shown in the last two games that I am ready to work when it arrives," he signed the exit.Also Read: Neeraj Chopra rises to second spot in world rankings after Olympic gold

Things exploded between India captain Virat Kohli and veteran England player James Anderson during the first session of day 4 of the second test at Lords. Kohli seemed to be angry about something Anderson had told him. "You swearing at me again are you? This isn’t your fu***ng backyard," Kohli could be heard saying over the stump mic to Anderson's during the 17th over of the day. Chirp chirp chirp. This is what old age makes you do," Kohli could be heard saying after Anderson bowled the fifth delivery of the over. Kohli was looking good during his short stay at the crease before Sam Curran dismissed him for 20. Kohli edged one straight to Jos Buttler India finally finished the session at 56/3 with a lead of just 29 times. India earlier lost its first wicket KL Rahul, who scored a century in the first innings, and Rohit Sharma in the first 12 overs of the day. In reacting to the incident, Stuart Broad, who was ruled from the ongoing test series, reminded fans of the Anderson five wicket hauls at Lords, saying that the honours board at the venue's suggests it his "actual backyard". "The Lord's honours board suggests it's as close to Jimmy's backyard as Jimmy's actual backyard. Love the fire but that language will have him in trouble," Broad tweeted.Also Read- Archery Youth World Championships: Komalika Bari wins successive world titles, record haul for India
