India had a poor start to the 4th test at Oval and reached 122/6 at tea. the whole top order is back to the pavilion . Both the openers and Pujara went cheaply after which Kohli played a good knock of 50 , playing some lovely cover drives but even he was dropped off a sitter by Root of the bowling of Woakes when he was 22 . Jadeja ‘s promotion to number 5 did not work as he was out for 10 and Rahane’s woes continued with another low score of 14 .
The England bowlers were brilliant with their line and lengths and never leaked runs . Woakes addition to the bowling line up has enhanced their attack.
The post lunch session also had an interesting little ” duel” between Kohli and Anderson. The first ball of the 22nd over saw Kohli defending a ball from Anderson which took the inside edge and went through his legs down the leg side for a single. Anderson smiled at Kohli on the way to his bowling mark as Kohli was gesturing to him by his hands , the movement of the ball which he had slight difficulty in playing .
Later on during a break both were seen talking to each other standing close together .
Since Kohli- Anderson duels always fuels the imagination of the fans , the video and the photos were trending on Twitter and fans starting giving their own views .
