Ind vs Eng, 1st Test: India struggles as Virat Kohli gets out hit-wicket

Team India bowled out for just 488 in response to England’s 537 on day 4 of the first Test match at the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) ground on Saturday.

For India, Murli Vijay top scored with 126 in 301 balls with nine fours and four sixes.

For England, Adil Rashid was the pick of the bowlers for claiming 4 wickets.

England has a first innings lead of 49.

Earlier, visitors had a good start to day 4 of the Test match as they got the wickets of Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane in quick succession.

India got a major blow when Virat dismissed in a bizarre fashion at the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) ground on Saturday.

Kohli (40) was out hit-wicket to legspinner Adil Rashid to join a list of 21 other Indian batsmen who ended their innings in this way.

Interestingly, it was the first time that the Indian captain Virat Kohli was dismissed in that fashion.

On day 3, riding on brilliant centuries from opener Murali Vijay (126) and Cheteshwar Pujara (124), India reached 319/4 at stumps.

The duo forged a huge second-wicket stand of 209 to help India give an apt reply to England's massive first innings score of 537.

England fought back late in the day by dismissing the well-set Vijay, who hit 9 fours and 4 sixes in his marathon 485-minute innings, and night watchman Amit Mishra (0) in the space of four balls.
