India vs England: Match Preview fourth Test

England speedster James Anderson took five wickets to help England bowl India out for a paltry 107 at stumps on a rain-truncated second day of the second cricket Test at Lord’s.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (29) top-scored for the visitors even as the English pacers used the overcast conditions well, with Anderson emerging the wrecker-in-chief to pick 5/20. Fellow pacers Chris Woakes (2/19), Stuart Broad (1/37) and Sam Curran (1/26) complemented the seasoned Anderson well sharing the rest five wickets.

Put in to bat after incessant rain completely washed out the opening day, India failed to recover from the early jolts of openers Murali Vijay (0) and Lokesh Rahul (8) before the showers disrupted the proceedings in the morning session.

Coming back to the side, No.3 Cheteshwar Pujara survived 25 deliveries for 1 run before a mix-up with skipper Virat Kohli (23), cut short the Saurashtra Test specialist’s stay even as rain stopped play once again.
