India shot out for 107
James Anderson took five wickets and Chris Woakes dismissed Virat Kohli as India were bowled out for just 107 on the second day of the second Test against England at Lord's on Friday. Anderson's return of five wickets for 20 runs in 13.2 overs left him just one dismissal shy of becoming the first bowler to take 100 Test wickets at Lord's.
Woakes removed India captain Kohli (23) and Hardik Pandya (11) in extraordinary fashion. In both cases he had the batsmen caught by Jos Buttler the very next delivery after the second slip had dropped each of them, with the ball going for four.
Rain, which meant there was no play at all on Thursday, saw just 40 minutes' action, featuring 8.3 overs, before tea. But that was time enough for India to be 15 for three.
England captain Joe Root decided to field when he won the toss, a combination of cloudy skies and a green-tinged pitch ideal for Anderson, who struck with just the fifth ball of the match when Murali Vijay was undone by late outswing and bowled for a duck.
Vijay's exit brought in Cheteshwar Pujara, who could only watch as Anderson had KL Rahul (8) caught behind by wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow. Soon afterwards, rain stopped play, with Pujara and Kohli then both one not out. When play resumed for just 12 balls between lunch and tea, Pujara was run out off the last ball when Kohli responded, only to change his mind and retreat.
Then there was a fresh downpour and it was not until 5.10pm that the match re-started. At 49 for three Kohli, on 23, edged a full-length Woakes outswinger and this time Buttler made no mistake.
Sam Curran took the fielders out of the equation when the left-arm swing bowler bowled Dinesh Karthik with a ball that cut back late to reduce India to 62 for six. Ravichandran Ashwin top-scored with 29 before he was plumb leg before to Broad before Anderson ended the day's play when No 11 Ishant Sharma was lbw for nought.
