Virat knock helped Curran

Ben Stokes is on trial accused of affray

It's just that bit of anxiety or stiffening of hands as it comes along. I'm just so proud to be a part of this group and playing for England.

"That was a fantastic performance to come into his second Test match under pressure, against the number one Test team in the world and play like that".

He was a genius waging a lone battle. In both the innings, he was ditched by his own men.

On day one, Joe Root's 80 runs helped England score 287 runs in their first innings.

Later, India came to bat for the first innings.

But obviously, just two Tests in, it's very easy to get carried away but he's a very exciting, promising cricketer.

That England had a target of 194 to defend was largely down to the 20-year-old Curran's 63, his maiden Test fifty in just his second match at this level rescuing the hosts from the depths of 87/7.

He may have been one of many in the match to not have succeeded with the bat, but it was the manner in which he got out that was more worrisome.

"It was said similarly about Ian Chappell because he was very aggressive and not short of a word or two in the batsman's ear. So, that was a handsome zone to be in", Kohli had said in an interview post his 149. It was an emotional fixture for both the sides.

The India captain, already at the head of the equivalent one-day worldwide batting chart, found himself at the summit of these standings after scoring 149 - his maiden Test century in England - and 51 during the series opener at Edgbaston.

Batting first, Australia posted a massive total of 517 runs declared, courtesy of centuries from David Warner, Michael Clarke and Steven Smith.

Iran refuses talks with USA under coercion
Also last month, China , which is Iran's biggest customer, said it did not accept unilateral sanctions against Iran. However, only 13 planes have been delivered since sanctions on Iran were lifted under the nuclear pact.

The immediate prize of Kohli was not to be, but second-best was Dinesh Karthik - ending a troublesome stand of 34 which had narrowed the margins while England's bowlers exhausted on Friday. He is second to Kohli among the Indians and the team needs to persist with the vice-captain.

In the end, while England kept their record intact at Edgbaston with a decisive win over the Indians, the spotlight shone on the Indian captain and his teammates for different reasons.

Anderson gave England, and their expectant crowd, a fine start on a sunny morning, but it was not the wicket he told a press conference the previous evening he would go to bed dreaming about.

The Sri Lankan Cricket Board have confirmed they will no longer be hosting a T20 tournament similar to the IPL. They played 76 overs in the first innings and scored 274 runs and lost all wickets.

With the ball, Curran was superb too, returning career-best figures of 4/74 in the first dig to shave off India's top order.

All-rounder Stokes, who sealed victory with four wickets in a gripping final day at Edgbaston, will miss the second Test to face a charge of affray at court in Bristol, a trial which begins on Monday and is expected to last a week. But yes, there are times when you are in doubt, you don't meet the ball at the correct place. That proved beyond India, who were bowled out for 162. They suffered a close loss of 31 runs despite Indian skipper, Virat Kohli's heroics.

In India, they are confortable on the flat tracks. We've shown that a few of their guys do struggle against the moving ball. Even Kohli initially did.

"They deluded themselves that they are in England for one month".

"At Edgbaston, the batting has to be taken in context", Bayliss said. It's just disappointing, more so for them than anyone else.

Sam, at 19 years and 363 days, was the seventh youngest English player to debut in Test cricket when he took the field against Pakistan in June early this year. He was let down by his batters, once again.
