WATCH: James Anderson gets excited after firing Virat Kohli – ENG vs IND 2021

Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat first in the third Test in the series of five matches against England.

On a cloudy morning in Headingley, Leeds, English pacer James Anderson stole the show in the first hour of the game with a sublime bowling. He fired KL Rahul (0), Cheteshwar Pujara (1) and Kohli (7) all before completing his 6th over of the first innings.

India were 56 for losing four wickets during lunch.

For the seventh time, Kohli was sent back along with Nathan Lyon by Anderson — the most joint to any bowler. With this dismissal, it is also 50 innings since Kohli made an international century.

Meanwhile, England’s captain Joe Root said he was not disappointed to bowl first. England have included fast bowler Craig Overton in the XI for Mark Wood and the top batsman Dawid Malan for Dom Sibley.

India XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj

England XI: Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed, David Malan, Joe Root (c), Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Craig Overton, Ollie Robinson, James Anderson.
