Anderson breaches 900-point mark; Kohli loses top spot

James Anderson reaches Lord’s milestone

After England captain Joe Root had declared his team's first innings closed at 396 for seven, Vijay pushed forward to a full delivery in Anderson's second over and was caught behind off a thin inside edge by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.

Mail Today called India's performance a "humiliating defeat" while The Hindu newspaper's headline said "Another abysmal batting display sends India to its doom" after the team were bowled out for 107 and 130.

Steve Smith has regained top spot in the Test batting rankings despite his 12-month ban after Virat Kohli's modest performance at Lord's. Trailing by a mammoth 289, India were in desperate need of a good start. Both Anderson and Broad finished with four wickets.

While England openers - Alastiar Cook and Keaton Jennings - did not set anything on fire, the contributions from their Indian counterparts - KL Rahul and Murali Vijay - were even more miserable.

It was a collapse preceded by Ajinkya Rahane, who threw away his wicket after a quiet post-lunch session with a loose shot at a wide ball from Broad.

Cheteshwar Pujara, who played patiently for his 17, was bowled off the pad by Broad, before England changed up their tactics to stop Kohli scoring.

In a terrific afternoon spell, Broad ran through India's middle order to put England in the ascendancy. Tweets were aimed at the current bunch of cricketers after India's innings and 159-run defeat yesterday which made the scoreline 2-0 in favour of the hosts. Although he consumed around 19 overs (112 balls) of India's 82.2 overs, he scored just 18 runs, approximately 7 per cent from India's total score of 237 at the Lord's.

After a brief rain delay, Ravi Ashwin and Hardik Pandya took the tourists past 100 before the latter was dismissed by England centurion Woakes. The duo stitched together a 55-run stand to help India cross the 100-run mark.

Virat Kohli walks off after being caught out during day four of the Specsavers Second Test match at Lord's, London. I really hope he is fit - it's the number one Test side in the world against England in English conditions. You have to counter the conditions as and when they come to you.

"Can't crib about these things". There are sometimes where you can be over analysed (with the) technique a little bit, mount hills becomes mountain, you think too much about it, that is just the way it went.

Stuart Broad speaking to Test Match Special: "We had the best of the conditions, but used a lot of skills to make the most of it. Looking at things now, the weather was so unpredictable", he added.

The 29-year old concluded by giving an update on his stiff back.
