Talking about the England series, India lost the opening Test at Edgbaston by 31 runs despite skipper Virat Kohli’s amazing 149 in the 1st innings and 51 in the 2nd innings, which steered India closer to the 194 runs target set by England but could not get them over the line. At Lord’s, despite India’s overall failed batting effort at Edgbaston, there is hope that the visitors will bounce back.
