Love him or hate him its hard to ignore Virat Kohli.

The Indian captain has dominated proceedings on the first two days of the opening Test between India and England at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

Virat Kohli‘s brilliant century certainly grabbed the headlines on Thursday but in all the Kohli-mania the contribution of young England seamer Sam Curran should not be forgotten.

The twenty-year-old took three wickets in eight balls at one stage on his way to figures of 74 for 4 on the day, to easily be the pick of England’s bowler.
