After the entire first day was lost to rain, further wet conditions forced a delayed start with England captain Joe Root eventually winning the toss and putting India in to bat on Friday.

Chris Woakes continued a superb return to England duty with a maiden Test century against India at Lord's on Saturday as the home side took a firm grip on the match.

Anderson's new ball partner Stuart Broad then joined the party with the wicket of Ashwin, who looked good during his 38-ball stay, that also included four fearless hits to the fence.

Woakes joined Bairstow and, while Shami and Sharma were getting the ball to reverse swing and there was some uneven bounce, the England pair negotiated their way through the tricky spells before beginning to accelerate and bringing up their 100 partnership in the first over of the evening session.

He was at 3-over par for the second round through nine holes and 4 over for the tournament, putting him in a tie for 111th. Had he made the eagle putt, he would have had a good chance of getting into the final group on Sunday.

Jimmy Anderson showed he remains a deadly proposition in English conditions taking 5-20 as England bowled out India for a miserly 107 on the second day of the second Test at Lord's, but it was a "selfish" move from Virat Kohli that had Indian fans up in arms. He got off the mark with a four and looked composed throughout out his innings of 28 before he was LBW to Hardik Pandya (one for 16). Only the rain, which has washed out at least a day and a half, has had more impact on this Test than Woakes, and it's still a close run thing. He was fortunate to enter the fray with the ball no longer swinging as it had throughout the match and India's bowling attack - undoubtedly rueing the decision to pick two spinners - either tiring or ineffective.

England were 131/5 when Jos Buttler departed LBW for 24 and the match very much belonged to the bowlers.

Seven balls later Alastair Cook joined Jennings back in the hut.

The disastrous outing on Day 2 left many Indian fans fuming it led to many of them venting their frustrations towards the players on social media.
