England skipper Joe Root has said that their victory in the seesawing first Test, despite being "not at our best", has energised the hosts with confidence as they prepare to take on India at Lord's on Thursday. The story of the second innings was more or less the same as Kohli top-scored with 51 runs in 93 balls.
Kohli (200) nearly scored half of the team's total across two innings while the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, and Ajinkya Rahane struggled against the swinging ball.
"It hurts when you are not scoring runs (and) as well, the team is not doing well", Kohli said ahead of the crunch clash at the hone of cricket.
England, therefore, will have the confidence and advantage of playing at Lord's but they will not write off India. Jasprit Bumrah, who fractured his hand during T20I vs Ireland, has not recovered fully and is not available for selection.
'Dawid Malan drops out of the squad for Lord's. He claimed 4 wickets in the 1st innings and hit a vital half-century in the second.
It was also announced that 20-year-old Olliver Pope will make his Test debut and bat at number four.

USA detects new activity at North Korea factory that built ICBMs
National anthems of the United States and South Korea were played, and the caskets were given a 21-gun salute by USA riflemen. Still, the initial "field forensic review" indicates that the "remains are what North Korea said they were", Byrd said.
Root, frustratingly run out for 80 in England's first innings at Edgbaston, said it was important to put the side's batting struggles into perspective.
Joe Root made 80 in the first innings and looked slightly more comfortable against Ashwin in comparison to his teammates. On the bowling front, they will be tempted to play two spinners but if that happens, it will be interesting to see who gets left out.
Commenting on the injury concerns surrounding Chris Woakes, who is in contention to be in the playing XI along with Moeen Ali, Root said, "No, no concerns". The pitch is expected to assist seam and spin bowling in tandem.
Apart from this decision, England's bowling line-up looks set with James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Sam Curran and Adil Rashid.
But in the upcoming match, England would like to improve in a few areas along with the catching in the slips to pressurise the Indian batsmen.
Team India: Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.
