England v India: James Anderson takes 5-20 to hurry tourists out for 107
‘It’s been coming!’ – Woakes removes India captain Kohli
Second Specsavers Test, Lord’s (day two of five)
India 107: Anderson 5-20
England: Yet to bat

James Anderson took 5-20 as England bowled a woeful India out for 107 on a rain-affected second day of the second Test at Lord’s.

India fell to 15-3 after being asked to bat in conditions perfectly suited for swing bowling.

Anderson struck twice early on before the first of two lengthy rain delays.

Chris Woakes took 2-19, including captain Virat Kohli, in an extended evening session as India – 1-0 down in the series – folded in only 35.2 overs.

Woakes, returning to the side in place of Ben Stokes, and Anderson bowled superbly to expose India’s poor technique against the moving ball.

Only the intervention of Mohammed Shami, the number 11, pushed India beyond 100 before Ishant Sharma was trapped lbw by Anderson to wrap up the innings.

With the weather set to improve on Saturday, India face a sizeable task to drag themselves back into the match.
