England rout India by an innings and 159 runs in 2nd Test

He gets to 30 and is now the top-scorer in both the innings for India. yes, he has been India's best batsman in this Test and fair to assume that he will remain by the end of the Test.

Jonny Bairstow also contributed 93 to allow England to secure a lead of nearly 300 before Joe Root declared on the morning of day four.

The contrast, then, between a criminal trial on a charge of affray for England's highest profile player and a second Test that has showcased Joe Root's team at their absolute finest could hardly be greater.

"I am not very proud of the way we played to be honest".

"On the evergreen Anderson, who became the first bowler past 100 Test wickets at Lord's, and Broad's middle-order evisceration of India before tea, Root added: "[Jimmy] is a special, special commodity, isn't he?

Frankly, it is impossible to see who could be left out even if Stokes were available after this display reminiscent of the days when they were No 1 in the world even though England consider the erstwhile vice-captain irreplaceable.

"He's something that doesn't come along very often and we've got to enjoy him while he's around", Root said. Can't crib about these things. Sometimes the rub of the green will go your way too.

'We will not sit around and say we didn't have the conditions and use excuses'. Their bowlers were relentless with the ball. Looking at things now, the weather was so unpredictable, I think we got the combination a bit off before the game.

Kohli had to leave the field on more than one occasion in the second Test defeat at Lord's because of back pain. Lower back issue coming up again and again, purely because of the workload.

Woakes surged past Bairstow and was suddenly in sight of securing a place on the batting honors board at Lord's - to go along with his place on the bowling honors board after taking two five-wicket hauls at Lord's against Pakistan two years ago.

But it was new-ball partner Mohammed Shami who struck first when, from around the wicket, he had Keaton Jennings, aiming across the line, lbw for 11.

"[Broad] didn't disappoint - he bowled exceptionally well in those conditions". "To get that far in front, it is testament to the partnership between Jonny and Woakes". Really pleased for Woaksey. Number of occasions he scored how talented he is with the bat.

"I was probably getting a little bit nervous", Woakes said.
