England vs India, second Test, day four

England's Chris Woakes celebrates with teammates after taking the wicket of India's captain Virat Kohli

Speaking of, forecast of rain could be India's saving grace.

"It's still a bit of a blur - incredible feeling", said Woakes, who hit 18 boundaries and took 2-19 in India's first innings of 107.

England's highest sixth-wicket partnership against India has given the hosts a good chance of taking a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

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.

The host side appeared set for renewed frustration when rain twice more interrupted play in a match which had suffered a first-day washout and lost nearly 170 scheduled overs in all.

Inbetween Shami's strikes, Ishant Sharma had Alastair Cook (21) caught behind and Hardik Pandya (2-66) removed England debutant Ollie Pope for 28 to help bring India back into the match.

Jos Buttler (24) got in and got out before he too fell lbw aiming across the line as Shami took a third wicket this innings.

With Woakes, the first of England's three bowling all-rounders, at the crease alongside Bairstow, India could sense an opportunity to expose the tail.

Both off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and recalled left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav went wicketless, with India having cause to regret dropping paceman Umesh Yadav. "And Woakes and Bairstow took the game away".

"I went from 60 to 80 pretty quickly and all of a sudden started thinking about it".

But after 30 minutes of morning batting in which Chris Woakes (137 not out) and Sam Curran collected 39 runs for a declaration on 396 for seven, there was time for Anderson to become the first bowler in history to take 100 Test wickets at Lord's.

Kohli failed to take the field while England batted on, reportedly because of a back strain, and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane replaced him at No 4.

England won a tense series opener by 31 runs at Edgbaston.
