India pinning hopes on Kohli to win gripping test against England

Sam Curran (four for 74) made a sterling home bid for the headlines, with three wickets in eight balls during a titanic first hour of the afternoon - and England were well-served too by Ben Stokes and James Anderson.
India will be hoping Kohli, who scored a brilliant 149 on Thursday, can produce another heroic performance as they will need to pull off their highest fourth innings chase in England.
Earlier, India dismissed England for 180 in their second innings, with fast bowler Ishant Sharma taking five for 51 in 13 overs.
The 20-year-old left-armer proved he can be a major weapon if the ball is swinging.
England's 1,000th Test had threatened to end in an embarrassing defeat with more than two days remaining as they collapsed to 87 for seven in their second innings. In only his second match, Curran's late movement was a sign of great promise for the future. The Yorkshireman's round of broadcast interviews to clear the air were most welcome.
That got the Edgbaston crowd roaring on the bowlers in a manner reminiscent of the raucous cheers that accompanied England legend Ian Botham's celebrated match-winning spell of five for one in 28 balls in the 1981 Ashes Test at the Birmingham ground.

Ishant Sharma played four matches for Sussex in the County Championship Division Two, taking 15 wickets and even scoring a half-century. India saw a couple of edges not getting into the hands of the fielders. Sensing closure of the innings, Curran attacked the bowling, hitting sixes off both Sharma and Ashwin, as he reached his maiden Test half-century at a run-a-ball gallop.
