Virat Kohli managed to do what he couldn’t in the first innings as he crossed the century mark on the third day of the third Test against England at Trent Bridge.

After falling on 97 in India’s first innings, the captain survived a dropped catch to make 103 before being dismissed.

The drop came when Kohli was on 93 and edged a drive off James Anderson, right through Keaton Jennings’ hands and legs. Kohli also edged the next ball, but it fell short of Alastair Cook at first slip.

Kohli’s 100 came up shortly after as he sent Chris Woakes‘ delivery to the boundary to bring up his 23rd Test century and his second in the past three Test matches against England, joining his 149 in the opener at Edgbaston.

He couldn’t last much longer, however, as Woakes’ captured his wicket with an lbw, which left India at 261 for four and a massive lead of 449.
