Cant take five days off before Test series: Gavaskar

  • India's Ishant Sharma celebrates with teammates the dismissal of England's Jonny Bairstow during the third day of the first test cricket match between England and India at Edgbaston in Birmingham England Friday Aug. 3

While his batting received rich praise, former England captain, Nasser Hussain, reckoned that captain Kohli should take some blame for the loss, owing to a few questionable calls which eventually cost his team a famous win.

"Fabulous advert for the game of cricket, isn't it?" It's just disappointing, more so for them than anyone else.

20-year old all-rounder Sam Curran certainly announced his arrival on the global stage after his recent performance in the win against India in the series opener.

So, that's all the training India had leading into the Test series: three days of warm-up against Essex.

"[In my second innings] I was just trying to take a bit of inspiration from Virat Kohli to be honest", he said. "Hence proved that a great batsman can't always be a good captain".

India were 110/5 - still 84 runs shy of victory - with England needing five wickets.

Looking ahead to the Lord's Test, Bayliss said his players were "under no illusions" about needing to work on their batting and catching - four chances went down at Edgbaston, albeit with the now-discarded Malan responsible for three of them - but the head coach was encouraged by a bowling performance that exposed some Indian frailties against the Dukes ball.

India under Kohli gives the impression that they have resources to be gallant travellers, but they seldom look convincing. But we're very much in the hunt here.

Toby Alderweireld Set To Sign For Manchester United 'In Next 48 Hours'
According to a report by The Sun, Yerry Mina will not be pulling on the Manchester United jersey in the 2018-19 season. Alderweireld, 29, has plied his professional trade in England since 2014 following a transfer from Atletico Madrid.

Batting did seem hard on an Edgbaston surface that had quite a lot for the bowlers.

"All batters were in trouble - even Kohli, who I don't think was all that comfortable early on (on Saturday)".

He lauded the players for showing determination in tough situations. It was only after successive losses in the first two Tests, that Rahane was brought back and contributed to India winning the third and final Test at Johannesburg.Pujara, who came in at one-down, also played a crucial role in Team India's win by keeping the South African pace squad at bay on a very hard pitch.

"I am proud to be part of his group".

I knew there was still a lot of hard work to do [after the Kohli wicket].

Stokes ended the match when he had Hardik Pandya (31) caught at first slip for an innings return of four for 40 in 14.2 overs. Ashwin dismissed former England skipper Alastair Cook with a peach of a delivery, which was the ball of the day.

"I was thinking of making sure we didn't give any boundaries away, and made it very hard for them to score freely". Everything about their game and the effort they put in is about moving forward. "I thought the two big lads, Stuart Broad and James Anderson, set the tone very nicely". Kohli hit 27 boundaries while all the other India players combined for 28.

"That's all you can ask as a captain ... the guys to do as you ask, and under pressure to stay as calm as we did".

England have won only four of the past 10 Tests at Lord's, including a 95-run defeat by India on their previous tour in 2014.
