BIRMINGHAM – England were nine for one in their second innings, a lead of 22 runs, at stumps on the second day of the first Test against India at Edgbaston on Thursday.
Alastair Cook was out for a duck to what became the last ball of the day when England's all-time leading Test run-scorer, for the second time in the match, was drawn forward and bowled by a superb delivery from off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin that pitched on middle and hit off stump.
Keaton Jennings was five not out.
India were facing a large first-innings deficit at 182 for eight but skipper Virat Kohli, dropped twice, made a superb 149 - his maiden Test century in England - in a total of 274.
He was eventually last man out, with India just 13 runs adrift of England's first innings 287.
This is England's 1,000th Test and the first of a five-match series.
