After being dismissed for 13 runs, Hussain and Gavaskar reacted to his dismissal and said that the shot played by Virat brought back memories of India’s 2014 tour to England.

“Little bit more like 2014 and not the one of 2018. That was the sort of line that James Anderson troubled him with in 2014. He left those last time around when he played in England,” Hussain said on commentary.

Legendary Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar felt that the lack of Kohli's foot movement cost him the wicket. 

“His backfoot didn’t move and he committed himself to the shot,” Gavaskar said.
