Bairstow and Woakes put England in strong position

India vs England 2nd Test at Lord's: India lose openers cheaply again before rain stops play on day 2

A comic run out and almost three and a half hours of rain delay later, once again it fell to Virat Kohli to man the trenches against England's all out swing assault - once again his duel with Anderson demanded your attention.

It was the sixth time that Anderson has produced a five wicket haul at Lord's and he now has 99 Test wickets at the famous London venue.

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.

But the 36-year-old swing bowler was ably assisted by Chris Woakes, whose spell of 2-19 in an extended final session included the key scalp of India skipper Kohli.

Soon afterwards, rain stopped play soon afterwards with Cheteshwar Pujara, recalled after Shikhar Dhawan was dropped, and Kohli then both one not out.

After appearing to call for a single, Kohli started running before desperately scrambling back to the non-striker's end, while Pujara was stuck in limbo down the track as English debutant Ollie Poper whipped the bails off and he was out - not Kohli.

Only off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, batting at number eight, provided any real resistance, making 29 in a 49-minute knock before he was trapped lbw by Stuart Broad.

"I would be so disappointed if I had messed up today because they were ideal conditions to bowl in".

Anderson, who had generated movement off the seam as well as an impressive amount through the air, finished off the Indians - and secured his five wicket performance - by removing Ishant Sharma.

"You do not get conditions like that much in England anymore with the ball doing that much in the air or off the pitch".

"We exploit those conditions as well as anyone in the world". We hardly bowled any bad balls, we didn't give them much to hit, and when you build pressure like that all day, no matter who you are, it is hard.

While other bowlers took most of the headlines, Anderson bowled beautifully last week at Edgbaston for comparatively little return - here at Lord's a Test later he fully reaped the rewards.

And the hosts were in prime position to seize a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

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.
