England were cruising along after tea on day 1 when Jonny Bairstow nudged on to square leg and dragged Joe Root for a brace. However, Virat Kohli raced after the ball, picked it up, swivelled and got the throw back to collect the stumps direct. Joe Root was stranded, England lost their fourth wicket and a collapse started.
Cameras panned to Virat Kohli who mimicked the mic drop celebration and blew kisses all over the place. Responding to media queries at the end of the day, England opener Keaton Jennings said that his side was cool with the celebrations and there was nothing to be worked up about.
'He celebrated, and that's cool'
"It's fine. Everybody is entitled to celebrate how they want to. He celebrated, and that's cool," Jennings said at the end of day's play, playing down the incident.
The Indian captain was in many ways mocking the bat drop gesture by Joe Root to celebrate his hundred during the ODI series. It has certainly added a lot of fire to the contest.
The hosts collapsed from 216 for 4 to 285 for 9 at the end of the day's play and Jennings conceded that they had missed out on an opportunity to make a big decisive score in the first innings.
"If we can come out and be pretty relentless in the way we go about hitting our areas, at some point, you don't actually know what a good score is until both sides have batted," Jennings said.
It was a memorable day for Indian off-spinner R Ashwin who picked up four wickets and kept troubling the left-handers right throughout the day and used the moisture perfectly to get rid of Alastair Cook with an absolute peach in the first hour of the Test match.
"Ashwin is a very good bowler. He lands the ball in the right area, varies his pace, in India, I suppose there are more balls that can get you out, with the surfaces turning. He bowled nicely today," he said.
Jennings also said that the pitch is not very easy to bat on and only when both sides bat on it can a good score be deciphered.
"If we can come out and be pretty relentless in the way we go about hitting our areas, at some point, you don't actually know what a good score is until both sides have batted," the opener added.
