Virat Kohli has 'informal chat' with match referee during first Test

It was Kohli's first Test century in England - he had had a torrid time on his only other visit in 2014 - and it helped pull India back into the Test after Sam Curran had wiped out the top order before lunch on the second day.

England were 45 for one from 14 overs after the first hour with Keaton Jennings unbeaten on 20 and Root on 11.

Indian captain Virat Kohli lets out a scream after scoring his first century in England.

England along with Australia are the pioneers of Test cricket as both countries began playing in this format of the game from 1877.

Buttler was injured diving to his left at gully in an attempt to catch Kohli off Anderson, the ball appearing to clip his fingertip, though in a boost for England he was cleared of any major damage.

Yankees pick up lefty starter Happ from Jays
He now owns a 4.18 ERA (3.84 FIP) with strikeout (27.4%) and ground ball (44.6%) rates that will play in Yankee Stadium. He has played two games for the Yankees this season, filling in March 30-31 because of injuries to other outfielders.

Kohli lost Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav in quick succession but he hung in there and struck 92 runs along with the last two in Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma to before falling for 149 with India 13 runs short of England's total.

Just like in the first innings, Ashwin bowled to Cook, the ball dipped, pitched on middle stump, ripped away, missed the front foot prod of Alastair Cook and collected the off stump.

It looked as if the day might belong to Surrey left-arm swing bowler Sam Curran.

India kept losing wickets with Karthik (0) and Pandya - who added 48 runs for the sixth wicket with his skipper - falling at regular intervals.

Ben Stokes had his head in his hands after Kohli was dropped. KL Rahul (4) and Shikhar Dhawan were also dismissed in a matter of few balls by Curran as the match suddenly changed directions with India being 59 for 3.

The anti-narcotic police tweeted that "in the last three years she ( Sombra ) became a torment of " Otoniel ". Colombia's cocaine accounted for about 92 percent of cocaine stashes seized in the United States that year.

Curran is an exceptionally promising all-rounder but he was certainly not guaranteed a place in the XI and may not have featured if England had more faith in the fitness of Mark Wood and Chris Woakes.

Though India limped to 76 for three at lunch, the post-lunch session bought no respite with all rounder Stokes picking up two wickets to reduce the visitors to 100-5.

Initially it looked like they could be set for a long, hard day in the field, with India's openers reaching 50 without a scare.

He was soon slipping off his wedding ring from around his neck and kissing it in a defiant message to his critics who had blamed for his poor form during the 2014 England series, when he averaged just 13.40, to his now wife Anushka.
