The Lord’s Test between England and India finally got underway on the 2nd day amidst the gloomy weather after which the England pacers rolled over the Indian batsmen to bundle them out for just 107 after winning the toss. Virat Kohli’s wicket worsened things for Indians as only two batsmen crossed 20. Ravichandran Ashwin top scored with 29 while the Indian skipper made 23. James Anderson was the key destroyer of the Indian batting as he finished with figures of 5/20 in his 13.2 overs.
