England reach lunch with Cook the only casualty

English pace duo Sam Curran and Ben Stokes blew away the strong Indian batting line up and restricted team India to 274 runs, which is 13 runs behind England's first innings score 287 runs.

The India captain blew his opposite number a kiss, put his finger to his mouth, appeared to summon some choice words - and also reminded Root of his own "mic-drop" gesture after his second successive century had clinched the one-day worldwide series for England.

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. Ashwin sent back Cook for 0 with a dismissal similar to the first innings.

James Anderson was England's most economical bowler with 41 runs off 22 overs while Curran bagged four wickets.

From round the wicket, he bowled left-hander Cook - England's all-time leading Test run-scorer - for 13 with an excellent ball that pitched on middle and hit the top of off stump.

It remains to be seen whether match referee Jeff Crowe takes the same view, or decides instead some censure is in order for Kohli.

Jerry Brown had declared a state of emergency for Riverside and Shasta counties on Thursday in response to the fire. Mandatory evacuations are in place , and officials are telling people to be prepared to leave at any moment.

With Alastair Cook falling cheaply, Jennings put on 72 runs with Root but fell after lunch when he was distracted by a pigeon on the adjacent pitch one ball earlier. It adds to the whole spectacle of Test cricket.

With India suffering a collapse to rival England's from the previous day - losing five wickets for 50 runs - Kohli once again showed his skill with a fantastic century.

Sam Curran produced a sensational spell of swing bowling as England fought back in the first Specsavers Test against India at Edgbaston. In the morning, Curran had taken three wickets in the space of eight balls to reduce India to 76-3 at lunch. "I was working on simplifying my actions a bit and make sure I can get more body into the ball, try create something in the air and it worked really well", he said.

It got a little better for Stokes in India two years ago when he conceded 69 runs, including 12 boundaries, at a strike rate of 60 but managed to dismiss the right hander twice - taking 57.5 balls each time at an average of 34.5.

First to go was Vijay (20), plumb LBW to a late inswinger, then KL Rahul (4) played on to leave the tourists on 54 for two.
