Captain Kohli then played a measured innings with the tail and brought up his first Test 50 on English soil. What followed was excellent contest between the bat and ball. Anderson teased and beat Kohli outside the off stump many a time and Kohli didn't wither. The English players were left wondering if Kohli's dropped catches would cost them heavy. (Image: Reuters)
