England beat India by an innings and 159 runs

James Anderson reaches Lord’s milestone

"I am not very proud of the way we played", India captain Virat Kohli told Sky Sports. Tendulkar's Twitter post read, "An all-round performance by England".

For all that England's seamers did a supreme job at Lord's, there might well have been a temptation to lob the ball to Rashid late in India's innings - just as Root had done in the closing moments of both India's innings at Edgbaston last week.

This been the story of Test matches this decade, which now threatens to be played out once more during India's series in England.

"Dismal Indians at Lord's.everyone remotely connected with Indian Cricket knows where the problem lies or stems from.but will not utter a word for want of strength of character & courage of conviction.which is even more depressing really than the batting debacle actually.!" wrote former India spinner Bedi.

Rashid, who made £12,500 ($15,960, 13,977 euros) for his walk on role, was not called upon to weave his leg-spin magic in England´s innings and 159-run win over India in the second Test at Lord´s.

Anderson is England's all-time leading wicket-taker in Tests with 553 wickets and the only one to claim 100 Test wickets at Lord's, and is the first England bowler to breach the coveted mark since Botham touched 900 points in August 1980.

Sunday followed the same pattern of English domination as Friday and Saturday with Root, who appears to have visibly grown as a captain in the last two games, understandably deciding to extend England's first innings.

Mail Today called India's performance a "humiliating defeat" while The Hindu newspaper's headline said "Another abysmal batting display sends India to its doom" after the team were bowled out for 107 and 130. Can't really think about those things (conditions not in favour).

Woakes's 137 not out, his maiden Test century, was the cornerstone of England's 396 for seven declared. Rashid also did not take a catch, with most of the catches going behind the wicket. Credit has to go to England.

Man-of-the-match Woakes also had overall figures of four for 43. "Looking at things now, the weather was so unpredictable, I think we got the combination a bit off".

"To get a hundred and be on the honours board is something that will stay with me forever", said Woakes.

The BCCI is likely to pose a few questions to chief coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli depending on how the third Test against England pans out after being left disappointed by the team's meek surrender in the first two games.

"Just go in there and have net practice after net practice, try and get yourself a thousand balls, get used to it again, regroup, come back, work on your defence and make sure that what is your game plan".

But knocks of 23 and 17 in the second Test saw Kohli slip back.

In that case, senior bowler Ravichandran Ashwin looks a likely candidate for the leadership role.
