Virat Kohli put on a masterclass with yet another flawless display of batting in conditions which aided seam and swing bowling. He missed out on a century in the first innings but more than made up for it in the second dig. His first innings effort was more fluent punctuated with classy drives and flicks.

In the second innings, the sheer will and determination of his personality was on display. His judgement outside the off stump was flawless and his 23rd hundred paved way for a huge 4th innings total for England to chase. He has till now amassed 440 runs while the next best batsman in the series has not even scored half as many.
