England vs India, 2nd Test: Who Said What

Kohli remains the heartbeat of India's batting line-up and having survived a review the delivery before, with England convinced the visitors captain had gloved the ball behind to Jonny Bairstow, he was not so lucky the next ball.

Luck seems to have completely deserted India in England. And on Sunday, they had a mighty scare when their batting mainstay and skipper Kohli did not come to the field when the fourth day's play began.

In 17 Tests since Joe Root became captain, England have been dismissed for under 300 in their first innings seven times.

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 flawless antidote to Bristol. And that might serve as a blessing in disguise for Virat Kohli's men and boost their chances of saving the Test match.

Rahane (one not out) was alongside Cheteshwar Pujara (5no) when drizzle brought about an early lunch.

Bowler James Anderson starred in the match taking 9-43 and claiming his 100th wicket at Lord's, becoming just the second bowler to take 100 wickets at a single ground, after Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan.

He has returned to training this week but it's unclear as to whether he'll start the match or be among the substitutes. Sokratis Papastathopoulos is an upgrade on the team's previous defenders but Shkodran Mustafi remains a concern.

The only question then was whether India could take the game into a final day but the answer emphatically was that they could not, with Anderson again magnificent in going past 100 wickets at Lord's and Woakes again superb.

Kohli did not take the field on Day 4 due to back issues and was forced to bat at No. 5 after missing a chunk of play due to the injury.

"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.

There was a second mature performance in a row too from another all-rounder in Sam Curran while any thoughts of Stokes playing instead of a batsman would surely be ruled out by a debut of promise from Ollie Pope.

Thankfully the late resistance of Ravi Ashwin and Hardik Pandya that took India to 130 was ended before the umpires, who had set a precedent by taking the players off for bad light under floodlights on Saturday, could do so again. But like I said, I was a bit nervous out there yesterday. Even when the ball's doing a bit, you have to pitch it in the right areas.

"They made us work hard for runs and put a lot of pressure on us".

Fittingly, it was Woakes who wrapped up the win for England as Ishant Sharma was caught down the leg-side.
