Learn from Virat Kohli, show some guts: Paul Farbrace to England batsmen

22 August 2018

Bairstow writhed in agony before walking off for an X-ray with England one-day gloveman Buttler, who was a wicket-keeper early in his Test career, taking over behind the stumps.

England's score has gone past 200-run mark. What that also did is tire the English team down, gradually the shoulders dropped, there was little excitement in the bunch and more than the runs, the time spent on the field pounded their morale. England capitulated in a familiar fashion, at one stage losing nine wickets for 74 runs in the space of just 20.5 overs.

Lord's Test centurion Chris Woakes (4) got lethal short ball that reared up and he tried to fend it awkwardly as Rishabh Pant timed his jump to perfection to snap the chance.

"You just need to trust your technique, your temperament and be confident about how you know to play in such condition", he said.

"Everyone has a different technique, and everyone has a way to play". "Kohli is the best player in the world, his technique he is constantly improving and learning about and that's something we can all learn from".

Kohli was not at his most fluent but this was an ideal innings given India's situation and an edged four off Chris Woakes, his 10th boundary in 191 balls during almost five hours at the crease, saw the star batsman to a 23rd Test hundred.

She told the audience about how she auditioned for "two very large French record producers" who "did not take me seriously". Wearing a gold leotard, the pop icon delivered an epic 10-minute retrospective of hits spanning her 20-year career.

He had gotten out in the nineties in the first innings of the ongoing Test but such instances are a rarity. "Some shots that he is playing on this pitch are very hard for any other batsman to execute and that shows he is in good form and batting really well", he said.

Hardik Pandya was unbeaten on 52 when Kohli finally chose to declare and let his bowlers give Cook and Jennings an uncomfortable mini-session. You can't [overstate] how much luck plays a part - human error, a dropped catch and I wouldn't be sat here today.

"It's always challenging to bat against them". I never thought this would happen so to try to make sure it does. They wanted to trouble Kohli around his rib but most of the balls were just too convenient for him to sway out or duck under. "I think we won that session", he added.

England, who lead the five-test series two nil, were left to pick over an astonishing day which began well when they quickly picked up India's four remaining first innings wickets.

"There is enough help for the fast bowlers". After their abject display at Lord's last week, few gave them a chance, but at Trent Bridge they dominated from the start and tomorrow are all but assured of a vital victory.
