Indian captain Virat Kohli lets out a scream after scoring his first century in England.

Further, the Indian skipper also gave her a flying kiss as she was seen sitting in the stands.

India captain Virat Kohli made Dawid Malan pay for dropping him twice with a maiden Test century in England as the tourists bounced back in the series opener at Edgbaston on Thursday (Aug 2).

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

However, Kohli's useful partnerships with the lower order including Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav shrunk England's lead - that was at one point seeming to be more than 100 - to 13 runs.

His huge celebration when he ran out England captain Joe Root on the opening day was a sign of how determined he is to succeed in these conditions.

Police fatally shoot resident who shot home intruder
When police pulled up to the house, officers heard gunshots coming from inside and rushed in, where they saw a man with a gun. One call was very specific and dire: A woman said an intruder was breaking into her home in the middle of the night.

Curran used conditions to good effect as he trapped Vijay leg before, got KL Rahul (4) to play a lazy shot and then Dhawan edged one to the slip cordon.

Adil Rashid was introduced in to the attack just before lunch after his controversial return to Test cricket, the spinner starting with a nervous full toss and his one over costing five runs.

AFTERNOON SESSION (India 160-6, England 287): What a session that was, it was Test cricket at its best - high drama, tension and sporting intensity. "It's a five-match series and Virat has got off to a flyer with 149 and great players once they get into rhythm, once they get into form and once they get into confidence, they are very hard to stop". But the very fact that Kohli plays all three formats so well makes him a more hard player to stop [for any captain].

His nemesis on the previous tour, James Anderson, tested him to the hilt but this time Kohli came out on top.

Though India limped to 76 for three at lunch, the post-lunch session bought no respite with all rounder Stokes picking up two wickets to reduce the visitors to 100-5.

It didn't help matters that England lost an early review as Anderson's loud appeal was turned down, with DRS ruling in favour of the umpire's decision. He still struggled to read which way Anderson was swinging the ball and the pace bowler found the edge of his bat four times.
