India on the brink of victory as England reaches 311 for nine

England opening batsman Alastair Cook hasn't been in the best of form in the India test series

In a friendly gesture by Virat Kohli, the Team India captain on Wednesday gifted his Man of the Match champagne bottle to head coach Ravi Shastri following the team's 203-run win against England in the third Test at Trent Bridge here. "She kept pushing me and she's the one who keeps me positive out there", said Kohli who has scored two centuries along with 440 runs so far. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep. Kohli's 200 runs in the match helped India win only their seventh Test in England.

"The victory was much-needed in the context of this series".

"We dominated in this game because we put runs on the board and then the bowlers did well, they were waiting and ready, even Ashwin did well with his injury. We need to bring out the impact performances in the next two Tests as well", the skipper said.

"You can nit-pick around other areas within the game, but ultimately that first innings for us was very poor", admitted Root, who himself managed just 29 runs in the game batting at number three. England, however, lost their first wicket just five balls into Tuesday's play when fast bowler Sharma, testing the left-handed openers from round the wicket, got one to straighten away from the flat-footed Keaton Jennings (13), who was caught behind. "The bowling group was ready to take 20 wickets again", the captain said.

"We've got to do the hard yards".

Left-handed batsman Stokes - recalled by England just days after his acquittal on an affray charge following an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September previous year - had made 38 when he was rapped on the pad by Ravichandran Ashwin. "We know we will thrash teams at home".

England, whose captain Joe Root won the toss and fielded, slumped to 161 all out in their first innings when they were punished by Hardik Pandya´s five for 28 - the medium-pacer´s maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket. "You look at the second innings and the partnership between Buttler and Stokes and that´s a real lesson to our side in how to play Test match cricket". It's not about being defensive, but how well they adapted to the situation and built partnership. "It was about the batsmen, and what we could do to give them that cushion". "But we want to go outside and win and I think this side can be the best travelling side in the world".
