India take on England in the first of the five Test matches in Edgbaston beginning Wednesday. For the visitors a good start is extremely important as that will set the tone for the rest of the series against the hosts. Unfortunately though, India's normally strong batting line-up has seen a few blips in form with the top order batsmen in Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara not striking the right chords. The pressure and spotlight will once again be on captain Virat Kohli, cricket expert Ayaz Memon tells Network 18's Group Editor (Sports) Gaurav Kalra.
