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

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.

England lead the current five-match series 1-0 after a 31-run victory in the first Test at Edgbaston last week.

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.

Joe Root (19) had battled through a hard spell when he first came to the crease and was set to be rewarded with more favourable conditions in the afternoon, only to be undone by Shami with a ball that nipped back and stayed low in the final over of the morning. England will start their response on Day 3.

England debutant Ollie Pope kept his composure, however, the 20-year-old Surrey batsman sprinting in from point to remove the bails rather than shying at the stumps.

But, on 28, Pope missed a straight delivery from Hardik Pandya and had to depart. The batsmen could not deal with the swing bowling on offer and slumped to a first innings total of 107 all out.

He was kind, giving, loving and enjoyed life to the fullest. "We are going to miss him dearly". Jones sent his condolences to the family of the tourist via a statement from his lawyer.

Anderson, who had generated movement off the seam as well as an impressive amount through the air, finished off the Indians - and secured his five wicket performance - by removing Ishant Sharma.

Having scored 141 runs in the afternoon session to take the lead past 100, England continued to dominant after tea, with Bairstow reaching his half-century and Woakes following suit shortly after.

Much of the second day was lost to rain, which washed out the whole of Thursday´s play.

Woakes, back after thigh and knee injuries that have so far blighted his summer, started the carnage after he had Kohli caught on 23 by Jos Buttler at second slip just one ball after the same man had dropped him.

Bad light has forced the umpires to call off the play for the day.
