Anderson moves England closer to Test win

India vs England,Ajinkya Rahane,Cheteshwar Pujara

England swing king James Anderson became the first to claim 100 Test wickets at Lord's Cricket Ground on Sunday as his team played a second innings against India on the fourth day of the second Test.

In fact, with India being bowled out twice in just 82.2 overs and England batting for 88 this was a Lord's Test that in effect lasted for less than two day's play.

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 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.

Woakes faced 177 balls including 21 fours, ending the innings unbeaten on 137.

Stuart Broad has now dismissed Ajinkya Rahane five times in Tests, at an average of 11.

That figure now stands at 553, Anderson's nine fresh scalps making him the most successful bowler of all time in matches between the two sides.

The signs were of course there at Edgbaston, but in a match where only Virat Kohli and Joe Root - two of the best batsmen in world cricket - made a score of more than 70, it was just as easy to suggest that the only way could be up for India's batsmen. I am chuffed to bits for Woakesy to get a hundred. I am really pleased for Woaksey (Chris). "We now what he is capable of and to see him fit seamlessly into this environment is pleasing moving forward".

This, in the form of the sublime bowling of the master craftsman in Jimmy Anderson and an all-round performance of considerable substance from Stokes replacement in Chris Woakes, was the ideal antidote to Bristol. To win inside four days having lost a day to rain is pretty special. "Fighting to get the ball out of Jimmy and Broady's hands in conditions like that was tricky!"

Speaking after the match, visiting skipper Virat Kohli admitted saying, "We deserved to lose". Credit has to go to England who were clinical with the bat, ball and in the field.

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. You have to counter the conditions as and when they come to you.
