Kohli should take some responsibility for Indias loss: Hussain

Meanwhile Kohli, looking ahead to next week s second Test at Lord s, where India beat England by 95 runs in 2014, insisted his side could bounce back.

Kohli played so beautifully in this match, but he told me after the game that making his first century in England was secondary to the result.

Malan made just 28 runs in the first Test in Birmingham and National Selector, Ed Smith, says Pope deserves a shot in the Test squad. I think Joe Root has been outstanding in this game.

0 England players younger than Curran to win a Man of the Match award in Test cricket. If we stayed calm and trusted all the previous areas we'd been bowling then we'd get our rewards. His opposite number in the ongoing series in England, Root has been scoring consistent runs as well but fails fairly behind in terms of the conversion rate.

England skipper Joe Root urged the crowd to get behind Broad and Dhawan soon nicked his attempted drive to wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.

"So we'll go to bed dreaming about getting Kohli out first thing".

"We exploited that [conditions] really well, made it very hard for all the batters on that surface".

"It is a game where we would have liked to finish on the winning side", Ashwin said at the press conference. But one thing that really stands out for me is that inner drive and determination from this group of players.

Curran made his Test and one-day worldwide debut for England earlier this year and his swing bowling, especially against the Indian top order, impressed his peers.

Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: "We celebrated great success during this time, and Arturo had a significant share in that".

"It gives us a lot of confidence but at the same time Karthik´s positive intent has also given us confidence", said Sharma. India needed 84 runs with five wickets in hand. "To be honest, I tried to learn from how Virat batted with the tail in the first innings", Curran said after the match.

Sam Curran said the experience of losing his father as a teenager and playing cricket with his brothers lay behind his leading role in England's dramatic 31-run win in the first Test against India at Edgbaston.

". From there, the rest of the guys did exactly what was asked of them".

It took him just three balls to get Kohli, and another three to shift Shami and leave India needing a further 53 from their last two wickets.

"We could have applied ourselves better, but I'm still proud of the fight we showed".

England, however, are set to be without Stokes, 27, for next week's second Test of a five-match series at Lord's as it clashes with his scheduled trial on a charge of affray in Bristol starting on Monday. He's made some big contributions for his county side and a big part of that team.

The England captain said: "Whenever you watch him operate on the field he has this desire and steeliness within him and, similar to Ben, he wants to be involved in the big occasions - that obviously suits Test cricket".

"I don't want him to blush too much, but that was a fantastic performance to come into his second Test match under pressure and against the No 1 Test team in the world and play like that", he added.

Asked if he can credit how quickly Curran has risen to the challenge in just his second Test, Anderson said: "I can believe it, yes, because he's a really impressive lad".
