Broad leads crushing England victory over India

  • England’s Jos Buttler celebrates taking the wicket of India’s Virat Kohli

LONDON: Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes scored the first fifties of the match as England recovered to build a significant first-innings lead in the second Test against India at Lord's on Saturday after yet another top-order collapse.

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.

Virat Kohli and co will look for early wickets on Saturday as the second England-India Test match enters its third day.

Four overs later, Anderson dismissed fellow opener KL Rahul - also for the second time in the match - with another in-swinger that crashed into the pads.

So often attacking the outside edge, Anderson nipped the ball back to Murali Vijay and he only managed to get a feather through to wicket-keeper Bairstow as his Lord's Test ended with a pair.

When asked about the rain-affected conditions, Kohli said that they should not blame the conditions and England deserved to win the game due to their relentless approach on the field.

Earlier, India made a decision to play with two spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, whereas Cheteshwar Pujara had a horrific return to Test cricket. He was well supported by pacers James Anderson and Stuart Broad who tore apart the Indian batting.

Anderson was now just 12 shy of the 563 Test wickets taken by Glenn McGrath.


Fittingly, it was Woakes who wrapped up the win for England as Ishant Sharma was caught down the leg-side.

With Kohli unable to return to play for the first 37 minutes of India's innings, Ajinkya Rahane moved up a spot.

"I was gutted when that rain arrived, " Broad said. I am really pleased for Woaksey (Chris).

Hardik Pandya (26) and Ravichandran Ashwin (33 not out) showed defiance to put on India's highest partnership of the match - 55 runs for the seventh wicket - but Woakes again showed his value.

"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.

Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, started Sunday on 99 Test wickets in 23 Tests at Lord's following his first-innings haul of five for 20 in India's meagre 107 all out.

"Trying to get the ball out of Broad's and Jimmy's [Anderson's] hands when it's like that can be tricky, " Woakes said.
