The last time England batsman Dawid Malan played Test cricket was three years back against India at Edgbaston where his butter fingers allowed India skipper Virat Kohli breathing space and opportunity to resurrect his poor record in England.

Kohli had a torrid time in England in 2014 and James Anderson had the psychological edge on the India skipper playing his first Test innings on the 2018 tour.

Kohli, batting on 21, edged one from Anderson but Malan dropped a sitter in slips. Later, when Kohli was on 51, Malan dropped him off Stokes, again in the slips. Malan also gave a chance to Murali Vijay in the second innings of that Test.

Kohli cashed in on the chances and hit 149 and aggregated 593 runs in five Test matches.
