It an improved batting show, the Indians managed to put up 307/6 against England at the end of first day's play at Trent Bridge. After being in a spot of bother at 82/3, skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane put up a 159-run partnership to bail India out of trouble. Cricket expert Ayaz Memon and Rohan Gavakar lauded Kohli and Rahane's effort to take the team to a challenging total. While Gavakar feels that Rahane should be given credit for returning to form in tough conditions, Memon called Kohli the best batsman in the world on current form.
