Kohli, who scored his first hundred in England in the first Test of the series, made 97 before being dismissed by Adil Rashid.

But Alastair Cook (9 not out) and Keaton Jennings (13 not out) played cautiously to fend off the nine overs with England still needing another 498 runs for win with two full days of play remaining.

After Joe Root was done exhausting Anderson at the start, he turned to Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes, who probed the two batters by going wide of the crease and trying to use the inward angle to create LBW opportunities, but that's as far as they could get. Kohli shared a partnership of 113 runs with Cheteshwar Pujara on the third wicket where Pujara was at 72 runs where he faced 208 balls.

If Ishant scalped two wickets more then he will break the record of Indian former skipper Kapil Dev for dismissing opposition for the most number of times.

During his knock, Kohli went past the 50-run mark in each innings of a Test for the ninth time and when he got to 63, he became only the sixth Indian player to score 400 plus runs in a Test series in England.

The first wicketless session of the series brought some cheer to home supporters at Trent Bridge after England's top order crumbled to 84 for four at lunch.

England's faint chances of avoiding defeat in Nottingham were hit during the first session of the day when wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow broke a bone in the middle finger of his left hand attempting to take a catch.

The emir of Qatar also arrived in Turkey on Wednesday on a "working" visit aimed at strengthening mutual cooperation. Erdogan suggested Turks would stop procuring US-made iPhones and instead buy Korean Samsung or Turkish-made Vestel.


They could dictate terms after skittling England out for 161, with paceman Hardik Pandya taking a stunning 5-28 in six overs. Bairstow looked in a lot of pain as he walked off, and the latest update was that he needed x-ray to check the extent of the blow. "I was confident enough that a big one was coming soon".

Kohli was still on his tea score of 93 not out when his edged drive off an outswinger from Anderson, armed with the new ball, burst through Jennings's hands in the gully.

Next ball, Kohli edged Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, just short of Cook. He made a decision to take the review but DRS suggested that the ball was clipping the leg-stump and Kohli had to walk back.

"Although we are a long way behind", England assistant coach Paul Farbrace said, "we showed real effort and it was important not to lose any wickets this evening".

12- Number of times Kohli has scored 200 or more runs in a Test, which is already the most among all India players and fifth-highest by any batsman.

Did not bat: I. Sharma, J. Bumrah. Not only that but after this dominant victory the tourists will be only too keen to get at Joe Root and Co. once again and will doubtless back themselves for victory in the fourth clash at Southampton starting next week.
