Root run out sparks England collapse amid controversial Kohli send-off

While Fox Sports Australia, in a video, admitted that Kohli has a stellar record, they took a swipe at Kohli, saying, "Virat Kohli's favourite shot in England" to state that Kohli was out caught edging the ball 7 times out of his last 10 Test innings in England.

"It is an opportunity missed", Jennings said of England's batting display.

"Virat Kohli has become the Donald Trump of world sport", read the article.

After quickly taking England's last wicket to dismiss the hosts for 287, India slumped from 50-0 to 59-3 as Curran trapped Murali Vijay for 22 then saw Lokesh Rahul on 4 drag a shot onto his stumps two balls later.

As Root stormed off Kohli celebrated by blowing a kiss before mouthing some fruity advice, putting his finger to his lips and adding a "mic-drop" mime to mock Root's gesture last month after clinching the one-day series at Headingley with a second successive hundred.

But his 11th Test fifty without a hundred since that innings ended in frustrating fashion when, with Yorkshire team-mate Jonny Bairstow calling him for a tight second run, he was run out for 80 by Kohli´s direct hit from midwicket. Opting to bat, England consolidated their position despite losing Cook early, reaching 83 for one at lunch.

On 97, Stokes dropped short and Kohli leaned back to punch the ball through point for four, before letting out a loud roar in celebration.

English cricket team lost their five batsmen while adding just 67 runs to the total of 216 for four wickets. But Malan put down the chances, and Kohli made the a lot of them.

After Malan put down a tough one-handed chance at second slip, Kohli settled then targeted Curran, first clipping him through mid-wicket then angling him down to third man.

The wickets were ultimately shared around - something that will please England, who have often been reliant on Anderson and Broad. Vijay scored a knock of 20. What a magnificient day for Virat Kohli and India!
