England gave India a hiding at Lord's, dismissing the visitors for 130 and winning the second Test by an innings and 129 runs.

England lead 1-0 in the five-match series against the world's top-ranked Test nation.

And a thumping victory by an innings and 159 runs that leaves England two up with three to play was achieved while their talisman in Ben Stokes was preparing to continue his attempt to clear his name at Bristol Crown Court.

But Kohli downplayed fears over his condition, saying he was "confident" he'd be ready to play when the series resumes at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Saturday. Joe Root's side batted for a little under 40 minutes in the first session, aware that rain was likely to take time out of the game. Chris Woakes, the Man of the Match said:Delighted.

His exit gave Anderson, fifth in the all-time standings, his 551st Test wicket.

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.

His stand of 189 with Jonny Bairstow, an England record for the sixth-wicket against India, helped the hosts recover after they had slumped to 89 for four.

The openers failed again, Murali Vijay bagged a pair, KL Rahul was back soon as well, Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara resisted for a bit but it was just a matter of time.

The only question then was whether India could take the game into a final day but the answer emphatically was that they could not, with Anderson again magnificent in going past 100 wickets at Lord's and Woakes again superb.

The next ball Broad trapped Dinesh Karthik lbw for a golden duck, leaving India at 66-6 when rain forced an early tea an over later.

- This is the first innings defeat that India have suffered since Virat Kohli took over captaincy in 2004.

Anderson once again got into the act and wrapped up the lower order but credit must go to Ravichandran Ashwin and Hardik Pandya the two all-rounders in the team who made the English bowlers work hard. "I should be okay", he said.

"Even when the ball is doing a bit you have to pitch it in the right areas and the guys were relentless with the ball, " Kohli said. The thinest of edges off his glove was well caught by debutant Ollie Pope at short-leg, and his review seemed more in hope than anything else, as Broad picked up his third wicket of the day.
