  • India vs England 2nd Test Day 2:James Anderson picked up his 26th Test five-wicket haul

India had recalled left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who tormented England during the preceding one-day series, for just his third Test after dropping paceman Umesh Yadav, who bowled well at Edgbaston.

Jonny Bairstow also contributed 93 to allow England to secure a lead of nearly 300 before Joe Root declared on the morning of day four. When we bowled today, there was proper sunlight. "That feeling of raising your bat to a standing ovation at Lord's is a bit of a boyhood dream".

Despite Kohli's best effort, India lost the match by 31 runs and went 1-0 behind in the five-match series.

Bairstow received sound support from the correct Woakes, selected after fellow all-rounder Ben Stokes was omitted because of clash with his ongoing trial for affray. India would be looking at him to come good in the second innings if India has to draw the Test.

The weather at the Lord's Cricket Ground in London has played a crucial role through the course of this match, and it will continue to do so in the final two days. But credit to England, they were clinical.

In 17 Tests since Joe Root became captain, England have been dismissed for under 300 in their first innings seven times.

Anderson, who has 544 Test wickets, will have his eyes on equaling Ian Botham's record of 27 five-wicket hauls in the longest format. Chuffed to bits. Pleased for the guys, it is a lot of hard work. "I went from 60 to 80 pretty quickly and all of a sudden you start thinking of three figures and you start wafting at things outside off-stump, which I hadn't been doing".
