Kohli's act came after his direct throw from mid-wicket found the England captain short of crease after having added 100 plus runs with Jonny Bairstow on the opening day of the first Test.

Buttler was injured diving to his left at gully in an attempt to catch Kohli off Anderson, the ball appearing to clip his fingertip, though in a boost for England he was cleared of any major damage.

Curran used conditions to good effect as he trapped Vijay leg before, got KL Rahul (4) to play a lazy shot and then Dhawan edged one to the slip cordon.

England's start was good in the first session with Alastair Cook's wicket being the only dismissal before lunch.

Just as the partnership was starting to look ominous, left-arm swing bowler Sam Curran dismissed Pandya with a brilliant yorker.

There were strokes played, few iffy strokes too made an appearance, but on a pitch which seems to have dried out, this could well be India's best chance to put up a massive first innings total.

The hosts, playing their 1000th test, had lost six wickets for 67 runs as they limped to the close on 285 for nine on Wednesday.

The England skipper, Joe Root was the top scorer of England as he scored a flamboyant knock of 80.

Indian captain Virat Kohli scored a maiden Test hundred on English soil on Thursday. Murali Vijay (20) and Shikhar Dhawan (26) provided a solid platform as they repelled the new ball pairing of Anderson and Stuart Broad (0-40) for nearly an hour. Even over the last 12 to 18 months, I have spent a lot of time back home playing club cricket and I've been working on simplifying my action a bit, (to) make sure that I get more body into the ball and try and create something in the air.

- Isa Guha (@isaguha) August 2, 2018Since 2000, this is only the 3rd time Indian openers are not separated after the first ten overs in their first innings of a tour played in SENA (SA, Eng, NZ, Aus) countries. "It just happens to be the ball before I got out, and suddenly there's a huge hoo-hah about the pigeon", he laughed it off.

Sam Curran struck the first blow when he had Murali Vijay lbw for 20.
