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

When Ben Stokes bowled Dinesh Karthik for a duck, he became only the fifth England player to complete the Test double of 2,500 runs and 100 wickets. "I obviously saw it last night at the end of play".

After England, Australia have played the most Test matches (812), followed by West Indies (535), India (523), South Africa (427), New Zealand (426), Pakistan (415), Sri Lanka (274), Bangladesh (108), Zimbabwe (105).

Talking about his mix-up with Jonny Bairstow that led to the run out, Root added: "It was a human error".

Virat Kohli withstood England's bowlers to score a fine 149 and keep India in the game on an enthralling second day in the first Test at Edgbaston.

The confident start nearly threatened to unravel in the afternoon before Root and Jonny Bairstow steadied the ship with a 104-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

Kohli blew kisses in Root's direction before mimicking his "mic drop" as a send-off.

He also did the ´mic drop´ gesture in imitation of Root´s celebration of his one-day series-clinching hundred against India at Headingley.

In fact, prosecutors said last week they don't expect the word "Russia" to be mentioned at all. Five witnesses have been granted immunity from prosecution to testify against Manafort.

England´s Keaton Jennings tried to defuse any potential bad feeling by saying: "Everybody is entitled to celebrate how they want to". He was the best pace bowler for India in the first innings picking three wickets and it seems that he is finally back to his best after troubling three months.

Engaland was looking unsafe, with Root inching towards a century but his dismissal changed the game. Bairstow soon departed scoring 79 runs off just 88 balls.

Jennings was bowled by Mohammed Shami on the very next delivery, the batsman unfortunate to see the ball trickle onto the stumps after ricocheting off his body.

Only Cook (13) fell in the first session of the day, his front-foot defense defeated by a flawless off-break from Ashwin as he was clean bowled in the seventh over.

England said during the lunch interval Jos Buttler went to the hospital for an X-ray on his left middle finger, which he appeared to injure while fielding.
