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

Chris Woakes scored his maiden Test century and Jonny Bairstow made 93 as England built a huge lead over India in the second Test at Lord's.

Heavy rain is expected for much of Sunday, but England have put themselves in an ideal position to win this Test and take a 2-0 lead in the series.

England Cricket team replaced first test hero Ben Stokes with Chris Woakes and just like the former did in the first test, Woakes added to Indian cricket team's misery on the second evening of the second Test at Lord's as he dismissed the captain, Virat Kohli, leaving India at 49 for four at the end of 22 overs.

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.

Presumably wondering whether the ball would have missed leg-stump, Jennings reviewed the decision, only for DRS to show the ball clattering into middle.

Rahane, who did all the hard work to survive 44 deliveries, nicked Anderson's straight delivery to first slip Alastair Cook.

She said even though she worked with Gates a lot, it was clear to her that Manafort "knew what was going on" in most instances. He also refused to let them ask Manafort's former business associate Rick Gates about his reported extramarital affairs.

England captain Joe Root confirmed on Wednesday that Ollie Pope, a 20-year-old Surrey batsman, would make his Test debut in place of the dropped Dawid Malan.

And to what became the last ball before lunch, Root was lbw for 19 to a off-cutter that kept low, with Bairstow then unbeaten on four.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day. The forecast of further rain over the final two days of the match appears to offer India's best chance of avoiding defeat.

Team India will look to bounce back strongly on Day 3 of the second Test against England at Lord's.

Woakes' top Test score was 66 before this innings but he soon reached his first century for England off just 129 balls in an innings which included 15 boundaries.

What's done is done, though, and India will look for a disciplined bowling performance to get back into the game.
