Pandya OUT on 18 off 58 balls.

The charge was led by Kohli, who will be furious with the manner of his dismissal.

12 - In the history of Tests, Pant becomes only the 12th player to open their account with a six.

England all-rounder Chris Woakes has gone from strength to strength since his emphatic return after injury in the Lord's Test, where his show with bat and ball won him the Man of the Match award. Adil Rashid tosses it up and Virat flicks it away attempting a cover-drive.

Both fell before their hundreds though, with Adil Rashid denying Kohli his hundred. Kohli kicking himself and gets OUT on 97.

James Anderson and Stuart Broad bowled a tad short and the ball didn't swing much in the first hour of play as India were well placed at 43-0. Rahane edges it and Cook extends his left hand. Rahane OUT on 81 off 131 balls. India's lower order will look to add useful runs though the second new ball is only a few overs old. Virat Kohli still around!

Ajinkya Rahane came back in the form as he scored a fifty after twelve innings.

Ancient beetle discovery gives clue to gymnosperm pollination
To Cai, the beetle's large mandibles with bristly cavities looked like they were designed specifically to carry cycad pollen. Cycads , he cicadinae, are among the most ancient gymnosperms, which appeared on the planet before flowering.

England bowler Stuart Broad appeared to suffer a nasty sting when running in to bowl on Saturday afternoon when a wasp, or something similar, flew into his mouth and landed on his tongue. The biggest positive was how Kohli-Rahane resurrected the innings just when it looked that things will once again fall apart after a good start. It was only after the first drinks break that England broke through, Chris Woakes making the difference. It was obvious: if England had another good day in the field, the series could be all but settled by stumps. Does Joe Root and company have a plan B for the Indians?

At the other end, Rahane played purposeful cuts, a shot that nearly proved his undoing when a leaping Anderson parried a very hard chance at point when the right-hander was on 57.

Kohli took 19 Tests to achieve the milestone, while Ganguly played 28 Tests overseas as captain.

But it still needed a robust effort from two of the side's senior batsmen to restore the dressing room's confidence.

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have displayed huge grit post lunch. He scored seven centuries and 13 half-centuries at an average of 51.73. He would feel more dejected because Rashid was the weakest link in the England attack leaking runs with rank long hops. Kohli and Rahane have jointly brought in 64 runs for the wobbly side. As per the pictures coming in, it's a bright day at Nottingham so the fans can enjoy a full game of 90 overs. England thrashed India by an inning and 159 runs.

For the 45th consecutive Test, they tinkered with their team - including fit-again pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah, giving a debut to 20-year-old wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and recalling opener Shikhar Dhawan. Here's a small trivia about Pant. For us, the priority is to win games of cricket. "We've got a huge opportunity in front of us, but ultimately - as we have so far - we've got to start well first morning, and then try to carry that forward", said Joe Root.
