India openers make encouraging start in reply to England's 287 all out

Ravi Shastri Wanderers Stadium Johannesburg Team India Victory Bhuvneshwar Kumar Mohammed Shami

EVENING SESSION (India 274, England 287 & 9-1 - England lead by 22 runs with nine wicket remaining): There is brilliance, there is utter brilliance and then there is Virat Kohli.

After he was the last man out with about 30 minutes left of the day, Kohli was given a standing ovation around Edgbaston, with England fans also showing their appreciation of one of cricket's box-office talents.

"So from our point of view, we've got (nearly) 300 on the board - and if we can come out and be pretty relentless tomorrow, you don't actually know what a good score is until both sides have batted", he added.

Jennings fell prey of Mohammad Shami after the first ball of lunch break. Sam Curran was last out for 24. He finished the 2014 tour with an average of 13.40 and was undone by Anderson, who dismissed him four times in 10 innings.

Root formed a fruitful partnership with Jonny Bairstow (70) - the pair adding 104 to the total by the time Root was run out by opposite number Virat Kohli.

His experience in the County Championship has helped Ravinchandran Ashwin vary his pace and simplify his bowling action for English pitches, the off-spinner said after his 4/60 on the first day of the Edgbaston Test.

The hosts, playing their 1000th test, had lost six wickets for 67 runs as they limped to the close on 285 for nine on Wednesday.

BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND - AUGUST 01: Keaton Jennings of England is bowled by Mohammed Shami of India during the Specsavers 1st Test between England and India at Edgbaston on August 1, 2018 in Birmingham, England.

Jos Buttler was then lbw for a second-ball duck to off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who took four wickets for 60 runs in 25 overs, as he played across the line.

Anderson bowled a five-over spell during which he tied down Kohli, while Stokes did the damage.

India openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan were tested by new-ball bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad but the score progressed to 50 without loss after 12 overs. In the morning, Curran had taken three wickets in the space of eight balls to reduce India to 76-3 at lunch.

"Having batted with him today, he's taught me a hell of a lot - which is awesome, just to watch a master at his work". Low-scoring, as the most exciting Tests are.

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