In the first innings of the match, Virat Kohli scored 149 runs and helped India to reach closer to the target of England. Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma scalped one wicket each.

Kohli had let the bat do his talking as he set the record straight so emphatically after averaging only 13.4 and mustering a tour aggregate of 134 runs on his only previous Test tour of England four years ago.
