After the Virat Kohli's heroics performance Indian team lose the first Test match by 31runs at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.

England coach Trevor Bayliss feels that Indian skipper Virat Kohli can be put in pressure if their home team's bowlers thrashed the rest of the Indian batting line-up.

"If Virat Kohli is not the best batsman (in the world), he’s very close to it. The way he played the first and second innings was high-class stuff. If we can put pressure on the other batsmen in the Indian team, that’s going to add to the pressure on him,” Bayliss told reporters.

“I don’t think it’s any different for us. We’ve got a few guys who are not necessarily cemented in the team and that put extra pressure on people like Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow,” said Bayliss.

“India are a very good team. We’re very much in the hunt here. When the ball’s moving, we’ve shown that a few of their guys do struggle against the moving ball. I’m sure that they’ll be going away working out how they can play it as we’re going working on how to play the off spin,” he added.
