India vs England, 2nd Test: Rain stops play, India reeling at 11/2

More rain expected at Lord's

Anderson's return of five wickets for 20 runs in 13.2 overs left him just one dismissal shy of becoming the first bowler to take 100 Test wickets at Lord's.

Bairstow and Woakes came together when England were struggling at 131 for five, only 24 ahead of India, with the ball still moving around, but the pair drained the life out of India who found themselves short of pace bowling and over-loaded with spin on a slow pitch.

Meanwhile Chris Woakes marked his return to global cricket with two wickets for 19 runs in six overs, removing both India captain Virat Kohli (24) and Hardik Pandya (11) via slip catches by Jos Buttler.

After a delay of more than two hours, the players returned for 12 balls, during which Kohli and Pujara groped around trying to find the ball as Anderson and Stuart Broad terrorised them under leaden skies.

England captain Joe Root and India captain Virat Kohli.

"If we bowl like that today, with those conditions, we'd bowl most teams in the world out", he said.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day.

Their immigration process was under scrutiny, as President Trump has been cracking down on immigration through his policies. Green cards can also be obtained through employment, receiving asylum or refugee status, or in other special circumstances.

Team India will look to bounce back strongly on Day 3 of the second Test against England at Lord's. Such scrambled thinking then did for Pujara after India's No3 set off for a single in Anderson's next over.

Anderson immediately jolted India by trapping chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (0) plumb in front with a brilliant in-swinger, which the television replays also ruled in favour of the hosts.

Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings' opening stand progressed serenely to 28 before they were dismissed in the space of six balls, Jennings (11) lbw to Mohammed Shami before Cook (21) nicked Ishant Sharma (1-88) behind.

That brought debutant Ollie Pope to the crease and Surrey's talented 20-year-old showed no signs of nerves as he combined with Root to take the score to 77-2.

Dropped slip catches proved a problem for England at Edgbaston, with Kohli missed twice en route to 149 - his maiden Test century in England.

It was the sixth time that Anderson has produced a five wicket haul at Lord's and he now has 99 Test wickets at the famous London venue.
