Here Sourav Ganguly’s advise for Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper

  • Vaughan stressed the crowd booing Kohli could well work against England

The man who produced the definitive performance on the final day of the match, taking the key wicket of Virat Kohli and claiming 4 for 40, is due to stand trial in Bristol from Monday and, unless there is an adjournment, will miss the second Test.

India resumed the day on 110-5 chasing down England's 194-run lead but were cut short by Ben Stokes. And yet, the Man of the Match award went to a 20-year-old rookie in only his second Test - and the recipient, Sam Curran, found it hard to believe what he had been a part of.

An elated Stokes told Sky Sports: "Virat played a brilliant knock in the first innings but moments like that (getting him out) change games".

I'm really proud of the group. All the batters were in trouble, even Virat Kohli, who I don't think was all that comfortable early on. Sam Curran took five wickets as well as scoring a half-century to give his team a 1-0 lead.

India lost its first Test match in the five-match series against England in the United Kingdom (UK).

Root said that although England got a few things wrong, they never let go of the belief to win.

He lauded the players for showing determination in tough situations. But, there is the question, is captain Kohli asking his players something they aren't capable of achieving?

Meanwhile Kohli urged India to remain "positive and fearless" during the rest of the series.

It was virtually Kohli versus England and when the Indian captain was trapped lbw off Ben Stokes in the 47th over, the absorbing game was only heading the home team's way.

"We showed character at times but England were relentless in the areas they hit". Dhawan did not. His second innings was not different. Hopefully we will build on that.

Stats prove whenever India got a good start, and it is eventually followed by the pile of runs from Indian middle-order, India wraps up those matches on a triumphant note.

"That obviously suits playing in Test match cricket and you've seen that throughout this game".

The immediate prize of Kohli was not to be, but second-best was Karthik, ending a troublesome sixth-wicket stand of 34 which had narrowed the margins while England's bowlers exhausted on Friday.

"I know he (Pujara) has struggled but I would have liked him to come in at number three, especially since he is likely to play a steady innings, blunt James Anderson and Stuart broad, and enable Kohli to come a bit later when it is not moving a lot", he observed.

He has since played in the Test series against New Zealand and Pakistan. The hearing in the case for the incident in the Bristol nightclub in September 2017 could nearly go on for a week.The all-rounder picked up four wickets in the final innings of the first Test, including the key scalp of Virat Kohli, guiding his team to a thrilling victory. With exactly 200 runs across the Test - almost half his side's output - the right-hander has now usurped Steve Smith, the suspended former Australia captain, as the world's No 1 Test batsman.

Hardik Pandya emerged instead as the only threat to England, but he was last out in a total of 162 when he edged Stokes to Alastair Cook at slip.
