India vs England 2nd Test Day 3 at Lord's: Highlights

While the cloud cover that had aided England's bowlers on day two was absent on a bright morning in St John's Wood, there was still ample movement for the Indian seamers during the morning session.

"Some days it hoops round", Anderson told reporters.

This second day may have begun in bright sunshine.

Captain Kohli hasn't played the same XI in successive Tests for 36 matches, dating back to the 2014 Adelaide Test in which he led India in whites for the first time in his career.

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

Anderson then had KL Rahul (eight) caught behind, with India now 10 for two.

After a delay of more than two hours, the players returned for 12 balls, during which Kohli and Pujara groped around trying to find the ball as Anderson and Stuart Broad terrorised them under leaden skies.

Pujara, who has shown in the past he can cope with typical English conditions, set off for a single off Anderson.

Pujara and Kohli were involved in a run out which led to Pujara's wicket and turned the match in England's favour.

Anderson immediately jolted India by trapping chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (0) plumb in front with a brilliant in-swinger, which the television replays also ruled in favour of the hosts. It was worth the wait, though, as Root's men took control of this stop-start Test.

Woakes had already impressed with the ball, dismissing India captain Virat Kohli in taking 2-19 on Friday, but was arguably even more impressive with the bat from number seven.

Amazingly, the same thing happened with the fall of India's fifth wicket, Buttler again spurning a chance in the cordon off Woakes to spare Hardik Pandya before grasping the second edge the very next delivery.

WICKET! Keaton Jennings has been trapped by Mohammed Shami.

James Anderson said that there were few batting line-ups that could have lived with England's seam attack after they ripped through India on the second day at Lord's.
