While the day began with England feeling confident India’s pacemen starred with both bat and ball on Monday as Virat Kohli’s side thrashed England by 151 runs in the second Test at Lord’s.

England, set 272 to win in a minimum of 60 overs on the last day, were dismissed for 120. They were in dire straits at 1-2 after Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami removed openers Rory Burns and Dom Sibley for nought apiece.
