Moeen overpitches as Kohli drives it through the covers for one before Rahane comes forward but is hit on the pads by one that turns to fetch him a leg bye on the leg side.

Kohli well forward to block Moeen, who is keeping it simple and just trying to bowl on a good line and length outside the off-stump.

In the next over, Rahane clips Stokes through square leg for three runs before Kohli takes one.

Rahane picks up another single before Kohli glances a short ball off his hips fine on the leg side for a couple.

Moeen has a huge appeal for leg before turned down against Kohli, who is hit on the pads trying to flick it across the line.

The umpire turns down the appeal before England take the review but there is an inside edge which comes to rescue of the Indian captain and he is ruled not out.

Infact, Kohli (9) looks to have got away with one this time around. The bat looks to have hit the pad and not the ball but third umpire Joel Wilson suggests it is an inside edge to give India a big reprieve.

Kohli picks a quiet single off the fifth ball as four runs come from the over.

Left-arm pacer Sam Curran comes into the attack. A watchful Kohli plays out a maiden over not wanting to take any risks with lunch around the corner.

In the next over, Rahane pulls Moeen fine on the leg side for a couple and then takes one.

Curran, from round the wicket, strikes with the wicket of Rahane, who is given out leg before wicket for 12.

The umpire has ruled it out instantly and Rahane decides to review after talking to his captain Kohli.

A good call from Rahane to take the DRS as the impact was outside the line of off-stump and India survive another close call.
