Virat Kohli's men put all his efforts to clinch a historic victory on the third day of the first Test against England at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.

In six previous attempts at the venue, India lost five Tests and drew one. Overall, India have won just six Test matches in England.

Virat Kohli is waging lone battle as Indian top-order failed to fire for the second time in the first Test against England.

Ishant Sharma's fifer on English soil on friday helped India to bowl out the hosts for 180 in the second innings, leaving the visitor to chase 194 runs to registered the victory.

Ishant Sharma's stunning performance earned him praise from the master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar who hailed his fantastic effort and reckoned it reminded him of his famous 7/74 at Lord's in 2014.

India (Playing XI):

Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma

England (Playing XI):
