Anderson takes five as India 107 all out at stumps

He was ably complemented by Chris Woakes (2/19), Sam Curran (1/26) and Stuart Broad (1/37). The Indian batsmen have themselves to blame as much as the top-class bowling from the English fast-bowlers led by James Anderson. Pope scored his first Test runs.

Veteran quick James Anderson starred with the ball taking five wickets to help England bowl India out for a paltry 107 at stumps on a rain-truncated second day of the second Test at Lord's here on Friday.

In the first over back, Kohli, off strike, refused an easy single called by Pujara. England won the first Test by 31 runs.

What's done is done, though, and India will look for a disciplined bowling performance to get back into the game. "But he handled the task brilliantly".

After the entire first day was lost to rain, further wet conditions forced a delayed start with England captain Joe Root eventually winning the toss and putting India in to bat.

"If we bowl like that today, with those conditions, we'd bowl most teams in the world out", he said.

"The first half (of the day), when the game was on and off, it was hard for the batting team to switch on and off". The second saw KL Rahul, deceived by late away swing, caught behind.

At the break, Cheteshwar Pujara, who replaced Shikhar Dhawan in the playing XI, was at one and giving him company was skipper Virat Kohli (1).

The last thing India needed when play resumed was a run out.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day.

Kohli responded, only to change his mind and retreat.

That brought debutant Ollie Pope to the crease and Surrey's talented 20-year-old showed no signs of nerves as he combined with Root to take the score to 77-2.

No sooner had Pujara been dismissed, then there was a fresh downpour and it was not until 5.10pm (1610 GMT) that the match re-started.

Anderson ended the day's play when No 11 Ishant Sharma was lbw for nought.

This was an England sixth-wicket record in Test matches against India, surpassing the 171 shared by Ian Botham and Bob Taylor at Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1980.
