Watch: Virat Kohli Mocks Joe Root With Mic-Drop Celebration After Run Out

India captain Virat Kohli mocked Joe Root after running out the England captain on the opening day of the first Test at Edgbaston.

England were on course for a substantial first-innings total when Root and Jonny Bairstow shared a fourth-wicket stand of 104 runs.

But his 11th Test fifty without a hundred ended in frustrating fashion after a run out involving Bairstow.

Root's run out sparked an England collapse against India on Day 1 at Edgbaston. At stumps, England were 285 for nine in what is their 1000th Test.

Sam Curran (24) and James Anderson (0) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.

England's Keaton Jennings tried to defuse any potential bad feeling by saying: "Everybody is entitled to celebrate how they want to.

For India, star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took four wickets while Mohammad Shami took two wickets. Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma scalped one wicket each.
