England vs India 2nd Test, Day 3: Hosts lose openers Jennings, Cook

Virat Kohli

England resumed on 357 for six, already 250 runs ahead of India's meagre first-innings 107 all out.

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.

The seventh-wicket pair Hardik Pandya and Ravi Ashwin kept England waiting after tea, with a stand of 55, but Woakes quickly parted them to put his team on the home straight.

LONDON: Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes scored the first fifties of the match as England recovered to build a significant first-innings lead in the second Test against India at Lord's on Saturday after yet another top-order collapse.

"The key ingredient of Test cricket is the surface that we play on, when you keep flat, dead surfaces, where the bowler thinks, "I have no chance, I'm going to stick to my channel", and the batter thinks, okay, on this surface if I don't do anything foolish, I (won't) be out, ' that game is becoming boring, it's becoming tiresome", Tendulkar, who had 15,921 runs to his name in Test cricket, explained.

The exit of England " s all-time leading Test run-scorer meant 20-year-old debutant batsman Ollie Pope walked out with the hosts in trouble at 32 for two off 8.2 overs.

Liverpool confirm Danny Ings' loan move to Premier League club
And the Liverpool manager admits that many at the club were even hoping the transfer would not happen, because they wanted Ings to stay.

Even Kohli failed to make an impact, scoring just 23 runs.

Mohammed Shami (3-74) removed Keaton Jennings (11) and then England captain Joe Root (19) with the last ball before lunch - both of them leg-before dismissals - to leave England 89-4 at the end of the opening session.

Jos Buttler (24) got in and got out before he too fell lbw aiming across the line as Shami took a third wicket this innings.

India's decision to replace pacer Umesh Yadav with slow left-arm bowler Kuldeep Yadav came into question as the tourists struggled to maintain control on a wicket that appeared better suited to seamers than spinners. He and Cheteshwar Pujara held firm until the rain arrived. But Kuldeep rarely troubled Bairstow, who cover-drove him for four to complete a 76-ball fifty featuring seven boundaries.

Woakes, whose two for 19 on Friday included the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli, followed Bairstow to the landmark in 71 balls with his seventh four.
