Virat Kohli oozes class in straight drive off James Anderson

Stokes get the former Indian captain with a brute of a delivery that climbed on to Kohli who can do little to avoid the outside edge. Sam Billings nearly drops it but Joe Root is, fortunately for England, alert at first slip to grab the rebound. Kohli hits four fours to work his way to 20 but his wretched run continues. The match is still delicately placed with India only 208 ahead. Earlier, Hanuma Vihari did the hard work and fell looking to get his scoring boots on. It was a wide full ball from Broad and Vihari went chasing that.
