Just one of England's last 28 Test matches to have been played on home soil has ended in a draw (W18, L9); Joe Root's men have claimed victory in six of their last eight in England (L2).

"It is not like I feel bad that I got runs and we couldn't get across the line", added Kohli, now the world's top-ranked batsman in both Test and one-day worldwide cricket. In Indian side, except skipper Virat Kohli, top order is the issue of concern.

As well as taking five wickets in his main role as a left-arm swing bowler, Curran's sparkling second-innings 63, his maiden Test fifty, enabled England to set India a tricky target of 194.

"Ollie Pope will come in and bat at four", said Root.

As far as the play on the first day is concerned, it is likely to be washed out. So what has he changed since his struggles on India's last tour of England? Kohli was in prolific form and will be key batsman for visitors in the 2nd Test as well.

'He has reached a 1000 first class runs in just 15 matches and is the first division's stand-out batsman this season with 684 runs at 85. "He's very mature for a young man", said Root.

"I think it's sometimes easy to criticise the batting group but I thought the way both seaming groups in particular bowled was outstanding".

The possible chopping and changing in the batting line-up and temptation of playing two spinners have been the talking points ahead in the build-up of the Test, with the calls of picking Cheteshwar Pujara and dropping Shikhar Dhawan and fielding either of Kuldeep Yadav or Ravindra Jadeja in place of either Umesh Yadav or Hardik Pandya doing the rounds.

"We really need to look at any change in strategy, depending on the wicket".

Kohli's knocks in the first Test were not faultless though, he was dropped twice on his way to his century and edged and played-and-missed numerous times across both innings and Hussain believes his natural attacking instincts mean there will always be that element of risk to his game.

Kohli & Root- The two skippers are going to be the most important batsmen and even in fantasy cricket, they need to fit in all teams.

"The conditions were trying". The former India star is the leading Test and ODI run-scorer of all time, and is widely regarded as one of the game's greatest-ever batsmen.
