Highlights, India vs England, 1st Test Day 4 at Edgbaston, Full cricket score: England win first Test by 31 runsThat's the end of the first Test between Kohli and England. Hopefully, India will turn up in the next game. Apart from two vital contributions from Ashwin and Ishant, no Indian player stood up. England go back smiling. It is a shame that Stokes, who shone in this match with the ball, won't be there at Lord's when the second Test begins. India have not won a single game at Edgbaston and they have made sure that the record remains intact.

Highlights, India vs England, 1st Test, Day 1 at Birmingham, full cricket score: Ashwin bags four as England finish on 285/9 at StumpsStumps has been called and England are hanging on at 285/9 at the end of 88 overs. While they might take heart from the fact that they were not bowled out today, they would not be too happy as well with the way the middle order has performed. After Root and Bairstow's departure, England fell like nine pins. On the other hand, Indian bowlers came back pretty well after the first session. The good work had begun by the second session and by the end of the third session, all the bowlers had come into groove. As a result, all of them have got a wicket at least. But the hero for today is Ravichandran Ashwin, who was doubted for his skills in England. What a way to make a statement. He bowled various variations and troubled the best and worst of England batting. India will begin second day, looking to pack up England as early as possible. England will know they have an uphill task tomorrow and by England, we mean the England bowlers.
