England v India: Tourists struggle but rain halts England charge with ball

India vs England,England vs India,Virat Kohli

England lead the five-match series 1-0 following their victory in the opener at Edgbaston. All-rounder Woakes registered his maiden worldwide century, while Bairstow scored his 19th Test fifty as the duo shared a 189-run stand for the sixth wicket.

The case has been no different during the ongoing Test between England and India.

Day 3 report: Allrounder Chris Woakes displayed his batting ability with a first test century as he guided England to a commanding lead over India on Day 3 of the second test at Lord's.

Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes celebrate their partnership on the third day of the second Test at Lord's between England and India.

It was initially attritional for England as they batted on for 37 minutes in the morning, with the hosts adding just 39 runs after resuming on 357-6.

The 20-year-old Ollie Pope impressed on debut but fell for 28 before captain Joe Root, strangely subdued, was lbw to Shami for 19 with the last ball before lunch.

Pogba said "everybody was on the same page" in the France dressing room, from manager Didier Deschamps to the staff and players. It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher. "I always love this club".

Thereafter Bairstow and Woakes dominated a dejected India attack with England scoring at nearly four-and-a-half an over in a positive batting display.

But England, so often susceptible to collapses, kicked on as Bairstow and Woakes began to look comfortable on a pitch offering far less assistance to the bowlers than on day two.

India, who opted to play another spinner in the second Test, could not stop the flow of runs and looked desperately short of pace options.

His innings meant Woakes became just the 10th cricketer after England´s Gubby Allen, Ray Illingworth, Ian Botham, Andrew Flintoff, Broad, Stokes, Australia´s Keith Miller, the West Indies´ Garfield Sobers and India´s Vinoo Mankad to get his name on both the Lord´s honours boards that record all those who have scored a century or taken five or more wickets in an innings during a Test at the ´home of cricket´.

Surrey's Sam Curran, so impressive in the first game in Birmingham, joined Woakes at the crease when bad light caused an early finish to the day's play.
