England's skilful bowlers leave India facing point of no return

Cricket | Steve James August 11 2018 12:01am The Times India self-destruct as Cheteshwar Pujara’s run-out nightmare continues Steve James

And having bowled Vijay for nought in the first innings, it was not long before Anderson had him caught behind by wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow for his second duck of the match. He departs for a well-made 93. By the end of day two they would have found themselves praying it would come back.

Indian captain Virat Kohli after the defeat said:Not proud of the way we've played.

The live telecast of the match will start at 3.30PM on August 11 (Saturday). Tendulkar said in an interview with icc-cricket.com.

Not even rain that washed out the whole of the first day and reduced the second to just 35 overs could stop England winning on the fourth on Sunday as India were again completely out-classed in English conditions.

The only question then was whether India could take the game into a final day but the answer emphatically was that they could not, with Anderson again magnificent in going past 100 wickets at Lord's and Woakes again superb.

In the second test match between England vs India at Lord's cricket stadium in London, Virat Kohli and company will look forward to bounce back on track. The focus has to be on India - they have to be wary of the wheels falling off. A comic run out and almost three and a half hours of rain delay later, once again it fell to Virat Kohli to man the trenches against England's all out swing assault - once again his duel with Anderson demanded your attention.

Welbeck tested in makeshift left-back role for Arsenal
The last two matches between the Gunners and the Citizens have ended in a six-goal aggregate win for Guardiola's City. He could still make manager Unai Emery's 18-man squad, but it will be a late decision on his fitness.

Emery names Koscielny Arsenal captain
The Citizens did the league double over Arsene Wenger's Arsenal last season, winning 3-0 at the Emirates and 3-1 at the Etihad. Arsenal kick off their 2018/19 campaign when they welcome defending champions Manchester City to the Emirates this afternoon .

Rangana Herath trails behind Anderson, short of just a single wicket, with 99 scalps at Galle International Stadium.

Frankly, it is impossible to see who could be left out even if Stokes were available after this display reminiscent of the days when they were No 1 in the world even though England consider the erstwhile vice-captain irreplaceable. But Bairstow, as he's often done before, held firm while attacking the loose ball.

The conditions were favourable to a side with four quick bowlers on form, and it was a superb toss to win, but England have shown, after a dismal winter previous year, that they are capable of being a stunning side. While Lord's has proved a happy hunting ground for Woakes - his 16 Test wickets in two and a half Tests coming at an average of just 9.93 - no bowler has had as much success here as Anderson.

WICKET! Keaton Jennings has been trapped by Mohammed Shami.

As well as reaching the Lord's milestone, the dismissal - Anderson's 96th against India - made him the highest wicket-taker in test matches between the two nations. I wish I'd have soaked it up a bit more out there - it sort of went by in a flash.
