    OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Sam Curran. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Karthik. And that's that as far as England's innings is concerned. No real resistance this morning, just the ten balls it took for India to take the last wicket that they needed. Movement away off the pitch and no footwork from Curran and he succeeds only in feathering an easy catch through to Karthik who makes amends for last night's drop.

  • Good morning and welcome back to Edgbaston where for England there is much work to be done. Yesterday they dug themselves into a hole and whilst it will be Curran and Anderson to resume batting this morning, one would imagine it won't be long before we are watching India batting. England will no doubt be alarmed how much influence Ashwin had on day one of the series, however much of their downfall was of their own making. The really interesting battles today will between Anderson and Broad and the Indian top order. Can England fight back with ball in hand or will India build a commanding lead in this game?

  • 87.6

    Mohammed Shami to Sam Curran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Vijay. So England just survive the first day, just. After winning the toss and electing to bat and being in a strong position with Root and Bairstow in at tea, they will have to ask themselves some serious questions as to quite how they have got themselves into this miss. Ashwin was excellent for India, on day one of the test series his success is ominous for England. He was well supported by Shami however it was a moment of terrible running between the established partnership of Root and Bairstow that has proved the single most significant of the day, giving Virat Kohli the opportunity to run out the England captain on 80.

  • 87.5

    Mohammed Shami to Sam Curran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip for no runs, dropped catch by Karthik. After refusing the run Curran should have been out next ball! Lovely ball from Shami, little footwork and Curran is saved by Dinesh Karthik who dives across one-handed and drops what would have been the simplest of catches for first slip.

    OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot cutting, in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Broad. Out! A surprise as Kohli is finally dismissed. Rocking back to cut hard he didn't quite get on top of it and Broad takes the catch. That final stand was worth 57, of which Umesh Yadav scored one. A real body blow for England who would have hoped for a decent first innings lead. Now their openers have to come out for a tricky 20 minute period at the the end of the day when they will no doubt be tired. India could grab the initiative here with a couple of wickets.

  • 75.5

    SIX! Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Everyone comes up and Kohli heaves it over mid-on IPL style and muscles it all the way for six.

    FOUR! Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot sweeping, past fine leg for 4 runs. Kohli goes to paddle sweep, that would get him one but actually he hits it so well it will run away for four. Finally Yadav will have to face the start of an over.

  • 73.5

    FOUR! Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    OUT! Caught. Umesh Yadav to Sam Curran. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front Steer, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Karthik.

    Umesh finally finds the edge as Curran looks to run the ball down to third man for the single. England are all out at tea for 180 which gives them a lead of 193. Curran fought hard bringing up his fifty but there wasn't much from anybody else.
    India have been quite brilliant today, Ishant Sharma (5-51) and Ravichandran Ashwin (3-59) were the main wicket takers and they have put their team into a very strong position.
    The ball is still moving though and if there is one man you would want in these conditions that would be James Anderson. The next session is going to be very interesting.

    OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by Cook. Gobbled up at first slip, England have done it. Stokes is the hero, he loves the big occasion and drinks in the moment with his teammates. What an amazing Test match it has been.

    Wow. We have witnessed one of the great Test matches over the last few days in Birmingham. With more see-sawing back and forth than a children's playground, it has been impossible to predict and completely engrossing. The match situation was on a knife-edge this morning, but Jimmy Anderson swung the pendulum in England's favour with a wicket in the opening over. A double-wicket maiden from Ben Stokes, including the wicket of the sensational Virat Kohli, whipped the Edgbaston crowd into a frenzy and from there it was always going to be tough for the tourists. Adil Rashid snared Ishant Sharma with a googly before the enigmatic Durham allrounder sealed the victory with his fourth wicket of the innings. Commiserations to India, this will be a very difficult defeat to take but they have played their part in a fantastic contest. They will need to regroup and come back hard at Lord's in the Second Test, which starts on Thursday. Let's hope we have more of the same gripping action there and in the rest of the series.

    OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Adil Rashid to Ishant Sharma. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Massive appeal, England are pleading with the umpire to give this but Gaffaney is unmoved. Rashid tells his skipper straight away to review it, he is very confident. Ishant didn't pick the googly, just like in the first innings, but he did get a big stride forward. There's no inside edge, and ball tracking has it crashing into the sticks so England celebrate once more. Just one wicket needed for victory now, all of India's hopes rest on Pandya.
