Kohli century leaves England facing big task to win 3rd test

NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) India captain Virat Kohli kept up his brilliant summer form by hitting 103 before setting England a world-record target of 521 to win the third test and clinch the series with two matches to spare.

Nine overs into its run chase, England reached 23-0 at stumps and still needed 498 runs to complete what would be a highly improbable victory at Trent Bridge.

The highest successful run chase in test history is 418, by West Indies against Australia in 2003.
