Eventually, on the brink of Tea, he was trapped leg before by Moeen Ali, as England went into the break on a high. That will also continue captain Kohli's record of never playing the same XI in consecutive Tests.

With those kind of stats it is incredible England still hold a 2-1 advantage.

England lead the five-test series 2-1 but were outplayed in the third test at Trent Bridge and once again on Thursday the tourists' bowling attack combined aggression, movement and consistency as they removed the top order cheaply. Four years on and he has given himself a chance of repeating the trick.

He is on his way to doing the same this year as he now sits on top of the runscorers' list 961 runs, from 15 innings at an average of 64.06 with a high score of 193 against Worcestershire at The Oval back in May. And India, despite England's late resistance, looked on course again.

Bell played the last of his 118 Tests when England lost to Pakistan in Sharjah in November 2015. He was out leg before, this time to Ishant, who bowled a lovely inswinger that zoomed into hit below Root's knee.

When the England squad was announced for the Test, there were questions asked about Keaton Jennings' place.

"India did bowl very well with the new ball".

Ben Stokes (23) continued to defend stoically, lasting 79 deliveries. It wasn't a typically fluent and smooth innings from Kohli on Friday (August 31), contrary to what the scorecard reads; a 71-ball 46 was filled with streaky escapes where he was beaten outside off a few times, he had a few edges that fell safe and pushed at one too may deliveries that were away from his body.

The traditional tables have certainly been turned in this compelling fourth Test.

That meant there was no England recall for James Vince on the Hampshire captain´s home ground. It was young Sam Curran who was the thorn in India's flesh as he scored 78 runs and was the last person to be dismissed.

Although this may seem the most desperate of the choices there is a current example of an all-rounder who started batting low in the order but now is the leading batsmen for their team - Steve Smith. However, the 24-year-old returned to the side in the third Test at Trent Bridge and picked up a stunning five-wicket haul to rattle the England team in the second innings.

Batsman Ollie Pope is left out and seamer Chris Woakes is ruled out with a thigh injury. Even so, Virat Kohli's propensity for change is well proven, accounting for 38 matches out of those 45. Pujara, who got to his half-century off 100 balls just after lunch, managed 20 runs after in the remainder of the session, showcasing the struggle for runs after Lunch. There is concern over his bowling fitness and he played over the weekend as specialist batsman for Durham in the domestic T20 competition. Broad was rewarded for his homework against the right-hander, who averages 36.27 to one nipping away off the seam, but just 17.07 against one coming back in.
