How to watch England vs India: live stream Test cricket wherever you are

England beat India by 31 runs the first Test at Edgbaston on Saturday to take a 1-0 lead in a five-match series.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who could miss next week's second Test at Lord's because of a court trial on a charge of affray starting Monday, took two wickets in an over including the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli for 43.

Asked if he'd felt any nerves in what, personally speaking, had been a nerveless display, Curran responded: "Obviously Jimmy getting that first one of [Dinesh] Karthik, that gave us a bit more confidence, but whilst Kohli was there it was obviously going to be nervous".

England scored 287 in its first innings, and India made 274 in reply with Kohli hitting 149.

Trump asserted last week that his administration's plan to dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons is "going very well". The returned material also included military hardware and uniforms, including helmets, water bottles and boots.

Curran's efforts meant India would have to eclipse their highest successful run-chase in England to win - their best being the 174 they chased to win at The Oval in 1971.

India require 194 to win the first Specsavers Test after England were bowled out for a second-innings 180 at Edgbaston. But when he was out for 51, England were on their way.

India lost the Edgbaston Test by 31 runs, but it wasn't for lack of trying on the part of their talismanic leader. He singlehandedly brought India back into the Test match. Asked about that, the off-spinner said: "I have just chose to enjoy my cricket and stop reading about anything". "Back in the day I used to think about playing in different conditions, different countries, but when you become captain it's about taking your team across the line". Curran's three-wicket burst in eight balls reduced India to 59/3 in no time even as Rahane joined his captain to sneak in a few singles before heading for the break.

The Surrey all-rounder scored 24 and 63 with the bat and claimed match figures of 5-92 with the ball, earning him praise from former England captain and Sky Sports analyst Nasser Hussain.

As sanctions bite, where next for Trump's Iran strategy?
Sanctions will also be reapplied to USA imports of Iranian carpets and foodstuffs and on certain related financial transactions. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he supports Trump's willingness to sit down and talk with Iranian leaders.

It's the first time Kohli has reached the top of the summit in his 67-Test career. It feels like I'm dreaming. Although India tasted a bitter, narrow defeat, skipper Kohli's performances did not go unnoticed. Several slip chances went down to the despair of bowlers on both sides, who deserved better support from their fielders.

Vijay had been dropped on one by Dawid Malan, the Middlesex player spilling his third catch of the match after putting down India skipper Virat Kohli twice on Thursday.

That sort of atmosphere is what it's about, that's what makes Test cricket so brilliant. It was only after successive losses in the first two Tests, that Rahane was brought back and contributed to India winning the third and final Test at Johannesburg.Pujara, who came in at one-down, also played a crucial role in Team India's win by keeping the South African pace squad at bay on a very hard pitch.
