Alastair Cook out early as England bat first against India

  • Donald Bradman remains the quickest batsman to 6,000 Test runs in terms of innings

No contest here, and Alastair Cook was the unfortunate batsman on the receiving end.

The first ever English captain was James Lillywhite, who led the team in the first two Test matches against Australia in 1877.

At stumps, England were 285 for nine in what is their 1,000th Test.

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, front, and England's Ben Stokes wave their hands during the second day of the first test cricket match between England and India at Edgbaston in Birmingham, England, Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018.

He revealed this in a chat with India's bowling coach Bharat Arun on after picking up four wickets on the opening day of the Edgbaston Test.

It was also the finish of a fourth-wicket stand worth 104.

The India captain pulled off a brilliant piece of fielding to see off his opposite number Root.

Wicket-keeper Bairstow played the ball to midwicket for a single and then set off for what always looked a tight second, with Root comfortably run out by Kohli´s agile direct hit on the turn to end a 156-ball innings including nine fours.

The Bengal fast bowler, who picked up two wickets, said that although he did not play in too many games, he was focused when he practised at the National Cricket Academy.

This was after England finished their first innings at 287 with Mohammed Shami (3/64) taking the final wicket. Jennings was the first to go, but in an odd manner.

It became 54 for two in three balls as Rahul was played on. It was a lucky breakthrough for India as their pacers found movement after the break. Ashwin had a loud lbw shout against Malan which was turned down as India lost a review. Cook looked to defend a ball aimed in towards him, however, the spin eluded the left-handed batsman, with the ball crashing into his stumps.

"I suppose it just happens to be the ball before I got out that there's a huge hoo-ha about a pigeon".

India managed to get rid of Cook before stumps in England's second innings.

Root, meanwhile, dropped anchor and ate up a lot more deliveries against the Indian pacers.

Engaland was looking unsafe, with Root inching towards a century but his dismissal changed the game.

Root raced to the milestone in five years and 231 days, yet it was the skipper's dismissal at Trent Bridge that sparked a rapid downturn for his side.

After Malan put down a tough one-handed chance at second slip, Kohli settled then targeted Curran, first clipping him through mid-wicket then angling him down to third man.

Only Cook (13) fell in the first session of the day, his front-foot defense defeated by a flawless off-break from Ashwin as he was clean bowled in the seventh over.
