Visakhapatnam will be hosting its first ever Test match on Thursday and ACA-VDCA stadium will become 22nd venue in the country to do so.

The Rajkot Test ended in a draw after skipper Virat Kohli helped the side survive anxious moments in the final session of the fifth day.

Managing a draw against World No. 1 side in Tests would have come as a major morale booster for the English side, who were termed underdogs before start of the series.

England skipper Alastair Cook led from the front and continued his form against India to slam his 30th Test hundred.

Come Thursday, India's star batsman Virat Kohli will reach a milestone as he will be playing his 50th Test match.

Kohli made his Test debut against West Indies in June 2011 in Kingston (Jamaica).

In his 49 Tests so far, Kohli has accumulated 3,643 runs with 13 hundreds and 12 fifties. His highest score is 211. With his 50th Test in 2 days' time, Kohli will surpass Kiran More and EAS Prasanna, who both played in 49 matches each.
