Kohli, who was out for 97 in the first innings, took few risks during two sessions short on sparks and is expected to declare once he has reached his century. Now, England still needs 498 runs to win which seems a task which is close to impossible.

England openers - Keaton Jennings and Alastair Cook were batting on 13 and 9, respectively with two full days play remaining.

The evening session started off in much the same way as the afternoon session had finished - with Buttler and Stokes looking at ease at the crease and untroubled by anything the India attack threw at them.

But Ajinkya Rahane, who had sat in alongside Kohli in what became a painstaking 29 from 94 balls, and the more adventurous Hardik Pandya (52no) continued remorselessly. Kohli also crossed the 400-run mark in this series, becoming only the second Indian captain after Mohammad Azharuddin (426) to do so against England. It was not until the 41st over that England had their first success, with the recalled Ben Stokes getting Pujara to edge a routine chance to Cook for his first fifty of the series.

Even after Adil Rashid bowled Rahane with a googly, he did not cut to the chase until Pandya had brought the 500 lead up with a straight six off the leg-spinner on his way to a run-a-ball 50 to add to his five-wicket haul.

Buttler was pressed into service as a replacement wicket-keeper after Bairstow failed to gather a swinging Anderson delivery by Pujara and took a painful blow on the tip of his left middle finger. Kohli notch up his 23rd Test ton and 58th worldwide hundred in the five Tests match series on English soil. "I thought that the bowlers were brilliant".

"You do fret if you don't get runs, but the way I was batting in the nets and the way I was moving my feet, I knew I was just a game away from a big score".

6- Kohli has been part of six of the last seven century partnerships for India in Tests played in England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

There was to be no denying him his century and an edged boundary off Chris Woakes, his 10th four from 191 balls faced in almost five hours at the crease, saw him to a 23rd Test hundred.

The ball was just right to KL Rahul, but Kohli dives across to his left and takes it over his head two-handed.

"He's a high-quality player, and has shown he's learned a lot on this tour alone.

12- Number of times Kohli has scored 200 or more runs in a Test, which is already the most among all India players and fifth-highest by any batsman.

Kohli was out shortly afterwards, lbw to Woakes after missing a legside flick against the all-rounder. Virat Kohli rotated his bowlers well and this time was Jasprit Bumrah who removed the English skipper.
