Unwanted records scripted by India in 1st Test against England

However, he is confident that India can make a strong comeback in the Test at Lord's. And India's recent match-up against England was no different.

Even though the game at Edgbaston wrapped well inside four days, the entertainment it left to the cricketing fans has been to the core.

"The series is set up nicely now", he said. Gavaskar felt that the team should not be given such a long break.

"When he turns up to practise or as soon as he puts on an England shirt he's so dedicated to this group of players, to this team - and whatever happens, he's going to be a big part of this dressing room".

"With 11 players - a proper 11-player game".

The Lord's Test is scheduled to begin on 9th August and England will miss the service of their enforcer, Ben Stokes due to a hearing of his case for his involvement in a brawl at Bristol.

"One criticism for @Virat.Kohli is that he should give a consistent run to his batters & more time before dropping them". I will be working to get back to the England side to play alongside Sam. It's his team & only he can change their mindset. He will have to sit with them & tell them that if he can do it so can they. Former England captain Nasser Hussain wondered why Ashwin was taken off for one hour at that stage, despite an average of 19 against left-handed batsmen like Curran who went on to top-score with 60.

"I am not sure about India's chopping and changing (in the batting line-up)". Virat made that adjustment, the others didn't.

"I had a chat with him this morning and he knows you have to play the situation, you have to get yourself in, which he did with [Adil] Rashid and was then the senior player with [Stuart] Broad".

Bayliss said he expects the Indian team to learn quickly from the mistakes committed while tackling the moving ball just as his team would look to address its weak handling of spin, in the remaining four matches of the series. India is ranked the number one Test team.

Three balls later, Stokes had Mohamed Shami caught behind for a duck and India were 141 for eight, with their hopes of just a seventh win in 58 Tests in England fading fast. This guy is confident, let him have the ball and let him bowl straight away.

But new England selection chief Ed Smith has overseen several bold choices since taking charge at the start of the season and the inclusion of uncapped batsman Ollie Pope, like Curran a 20-year-old Surrey rising star, in a 13-man squad for Lord's continued that trend.

Kohli appears to hold the key to the series, mainly because of concerns about how India's other batsmen will play swing bowling.

While every defeat hurts, Brearley feels that this loss will be a "learning experience" for Kohli.

"It's gone to and fro ... and I think the standard of cricket has been pretty good".

"They deluded themselves that they are in England for one month". "Root has a poorer conversion rate in comparison to Kohli".

"I see Kevin in all of them".

Akhtar not only called Kohli an "amazing player" but also praised his "dedication and determination". After this, Joe Root and Alastair Cook have always been an impactful player. "But there is something ruthless about Kohli and he converts all those fifties into hundreds", Brearley told PTI. The hosts have only a slightly better record catching against pacers than India.
