Virat Kohli just short of century as India edge first day of third Test against England

Virat Kohli falls three runs short of a century as India edged day one of the third Test against England after being put in to bat.

India captain Virat Kohli has fallen three runs short of another century on day one of the third Test against England on Saturday.

The 29-year-old, who scored his first hundred in England in the first Test of the series, made 97 before being dismissed by Adil Rashid.

Kohli had shared a partnership of 159 with Ajinkya Rahane - who scored 81 – to put India in a strong position at Trent Bridge.

Although both the skipper and Rahane were removed before reaching three figures, India still reached the close in a healthy position on 307-6.

The tourists were set to end the day in a very strong position, only for James Anderson to remove Hardik Pandya with the final delivery.

India will be hoping to post a first-innings total of around 400 as they attempt to get back into the series against England, who are 2-0 up and aiming to seal victory.
