Virat Kohli slammed by Nasser Hussain for poor captaincy


He said that though India got time to acclimatise themselves to the English conditions, the fact that they mostly played white-ball cricket didn't help them much. One, whether England's bowlers - read James Anderson - would have Kohli's measure yet again. He got out just when India seemed to have weathered the first hour. As well as batting collapses in both innings - they subsided from 216 for 3 to 287 all out in their first innings and were 87 for 7 in their second before Sam Curran's intervention - England's slip fielding continued to cause concern with both Alastair Cook and Dawid Malan, who has been omitted for the second Test, putting down relatively easy chances by Test standards. "There's no better way to start it off than that". Had a fine last morning as captain. Saturday's play started with the match on a knife edge.

Indian bowlers performed extremely well and restricted England to 287 runs in the first inning. It wasn't a performance tinged with free-flowing shots. He is second to Kohli among the Indians and the team needs to persist with the vice-captain. The way he played the first and second innings was high-class stuff.

However, at 934 points, Kohli has become India's highest-ranked batsman and is 14th on the all-time points tally. Which he did when speaking in the post-match ceremony in a matter-of-fact manner.

Bayliss said he expects the Indian team to learn quickly from the mistakes committed while tackling the moving ball just as his team would look to address its weak handling of spin, in the remaining four matches of the series. "It is possible that others are intimidated by Kohli's aggressive personality". Will India drop one of the pacers at Lord's and bring in Kuldeep? The 29-year-old kept up the aggression throughout which also buoyed the team's morale. But, there is the question, is captain Kohli asking his players something they aren't capable of achieving? The left-handed all-rounder scored 24 and 63 with the bat, and claimed match figures of five for 92 with the ball, which not only earned him the player of the match award but significant gains in the latest rankings.In the batting table, Curran has jumped from 152nd to 72nd, the bowling table has seen him rise 49 places to 62nd, while in the all-rounders' category, he now sits in 37th position after jumping 58 places.

"I don't know whether it rubs off wrongly on some other players because for that you have to know the dressing room and how people react".

New batsman Pandya played several solid defensive shots before driving Stuart Broad down the ground for a textbook four - a boundary greeted with huge cheers by the large contingent of India fans in the crowd.

Gavaskar also doesn't like the common notion that Indian team being in England for more than a month was a recipe for success.
