Anderson`s fifer knocks India out for 107 in Lord`s Test

India vs England 2nd Test at Lord's: India lose openers cheaply again before rain stops play on day 2

Anderson`s fifer knocks India out for 107 in Lord`s Test

It was hoped a forecast improvement would come in time to get under way after tea, but the rain continued - and umpires Marais Erasmus and Aleem Dar announced at 4.50pm that there would be no play.

After a rain delay, Cheteshwar Pujara was run out by debutant Ollie Pope and a downpour followed immediately.

With the forecast set fair for Saturday, it will be the turn of England's batsmen to drive home the advantage given to them by their bowlers on a day where there were two stoppages for rain spanning more than five hours. Five balls later Jennings " s fellow left-handed opener Alastair Cook (21) was out as well, caught behind off a superb Sharma delivery from around the wicket that squared him up and seamed away before finding the outside edge.

The wicket was a turning point to an already disastrous start to the second test for Indian cricket team as the skipper had previously put in a stunning display at Edgbaston, scoring 149 and 51 he was the most prized scalp for team India.

If the leaked team-sheet proves authentic, then Kohli and the team management have opted to field the same playing XI that had lost the first Test of the five-match series at Edgbaston last week.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Slams Conservative Commentator: 'I Don't Owe' You A Response
" Just like catcalling, I don't owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions , " she tweeted. Ocasio-Cortez gained national attention earlier this year following an upset victory over veteran Rep.

Sam Curran and Stuart Broad chipped in with a wicket each, while Anderson dismissed Ajinkya Rahane (18) and scoreless duo Kuldeep Yadav and Ishant Sharma to end with figures of 5-20. The batsmen could not deal with the swing bowling on offer and slumped to a first innings total of 107 all out.

With Woakes, the first of England's three bowling all-rounders, at the crease alongside Bairstow, India could sense an opportunity to expose the tail.

Kohli, who was looking all at sea against Woakes, finally fell to the right-armer in his third over, with Jos Buttler making no mistake this time at second slip.

The shot that brought up his century - a pull over mid-wicket for three - was a rare mistimed stroke. Sums up the difference between England and India thus far in the match. But England " s batting has often proved fallible recently.
