  • Indian Test triumphs in England Part 6 Ajinkya Rahane Ishant Sharma lord it over at Lord’s

Kohli said the lower order and tail gave him ample support, building his confidence.

Upon bringing up his hundred, the 29-year-old let out a triumphant roar and kissed the wedding ring he wears around his neck, gesturing to the stands at his wife.

Wicket-keeper Bairstow played the ball to midwicket for a single and then set off for what always looked a tight second, with Root, who responded to the call, comfortably run out by opposing captain Virat Kohli's direct hit from midwicket to end a 156-ball innings including nine fours.

Amazon's market cap stands at around $877 million, while Alphabet's is $851 million and Microsoft is worth about $822 million. A company's market value is calculated by multiplying its current share price by the total number of shares investors hold.

On the work front, Anushka will soon begin promotions of her upcoming film Sui Dhaaga which also stars Varun Dhawan.

It was Kohli at his most brilliant and daring, when he departed for 149, caught at cover off the bowling of Rashid, he had got India to only 13 runs behind England's total, and scored over half his side's runs.

Kohli was on 97 when No 11 Umesh Yadav came in but the tailender kept his wicket intact.

Trump corners Robert Mueller over "Witch Hunt" probe
Trump and Giuliani's stance has moved from there was "no collusion" to " collusion is not a crime " after the U.S. Four members of the Trump campaign also have been charged , but they were not directly linked to collusion.

And when a two off Rashid toook him to 135, it meant Kohli had made more runs than he did in the whole of his maiden Test series in England in 2014, when he managed a meagre 134 runs in 10 innings.

Reflecting on the English batting, which collapsed from 216 for 4 to 285 for 9 at the d draw of stumps, Jennings said the hosts missed an opportunity but can still make it up. Kohli went on to score 204 off 246 balls and the innings had just 24 boundaries. Sixth ball fetches WICKET!

In doing so, Stokes become the eighth Englishman to complete the double of 2,000 runs and 100 wickets in Test cricket. However, the entire scenario changed after Sam Curran was introduced into the attack by Joe Root. But the very fact that Kohli plays all three formats so well makes him a more hard player to stop [for any captain]. "It was a frustrating partnership, but we've just got to be positive going into tomorrow". He still struggled to read which way Anderson was swinging the ball and the pace bowler found the edge of his bat four times.

A second firefighter has been killed battling massive California wildfire
In Riverside County, firefighters were working to contain the so-called Cranston fire, which has burned more than 13,000 acres. The blaze has destroyed at least 536 structures, damaged another 117 and was threatening almost 5,000 others, officials said.

Undone by the skill and swing of James Anderson, Kohli endured a nightmare tour in 2014 and had a point to prove this time around, despite playing down the importance of the series on his career in his pre-match press conference.
