Ishant Sharma, whose Test-best seven for 44 against England sealed India " s 95-run win in the corresponding Lord " s Test four years ago - one of just two Indian victories in 17 previous Tests at "the home of cricket" - bowled the first over.

With the win, England took a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Having conceded the first-innings lead of 289 runs, India's batting line-up could register only 130 in their second innings to add to their first innings total of 107. "I am not very proud of the way we played", said Kohli.

Mohammed Shami (3-74) removed Keaton Jennings (11) and then England captain Joe Root (19) with the last ball before lunch - both of them leg-before dismissals - to leave England 89-4 at the end of the opening session.

England celebrate with man of the match Chris Woakes. For the Lord's test, skipper Virat Kohli made 2 big changes as test specialist batsman Cheteshwar Pujara and left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav have been recalled to the team in place of Shikhar Dhawan and Umesh Yadav.

Anderson was now just 12 shy of the 563 Test wickets taken by Glenn McGrath.

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. Ajinkya Rahane, who is India's Test vice-captain, took the role of the captain with Kohli missing the action due to a stiff back.

PGA Championship Round 4: Tiger Woods hole by hole
There were so many other big names jostling for position that at one point it felt more like a auto race than a golf tournament. He added a two-putt birdie at the 17th and ended the second round in a tie for 19th place, six shots back of Woodland.

He completed his maiden Test century on Saturday, when he shared an England record sixth-wicket stand against India of 189 with Bairstow (93).

James Anderson, England " s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, took full advantage of the swing-friendly conditions with a return of five for 20.

The next ball Broad trapped Dinesh Karthik lbw for a golden duck, leaving India at 66-6 when rain forced an early tea an over later. But like I said, I was a bit nervous out there yesterday.

Hardik Pandya (26) and Ravichandran Ashwin (33 not out) showed defiance to put on India's highest partnership of the match - 55 runs for the seventh wicket - but Woakes again showed his value.

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.

"Even when the ball is doing a bit you have to pitch it in the right areas and the guys were relentless with the ball, " Kohli said.
