Broad leads crushing England victory over India

James Anderson said that there were few batting line-ups that could have lived with England's seam attack after they ripped through India on the second day at Lord's.

James Anderson (4-23) passed 100 Test wickets at Lord's and moved up to 553 overall with two early strikes, while the other half of England's destructive opening pair, Stuart Broad (4-44), claimed four in a devastating second spell, including Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik in two balls.

England resumed on 357 for six, already 250 runs ahead of India's meagre first-innings 107 all out. But, appropriately, Chris Woakes ended the match when he had Ishant Sharma caught at leg-slip by debutant Ollie Pope. The art of a declaration at the right time seems to be a constant talking point and there were contrasting views over whether or not the hosts should have got India batting at the start of play with rain around.

The contrast, then, between a criminal trial on a charge of affray for England's highest profile player and a second Test that has showcased Joe Root's team at their absolute finest could hardly be greater. He became the first player to take 100 test wickets at Lord's by removing Murali Vijay for a duck for the second time in the match.

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

"Trying to get the ball out of Broad's and Jimmy's [Anderson's] hands when it's like that can be tricky, " Woakes said. I am chuffed to bits for Woakesy to get a hundred. "We now what he is capable of and to see him fit seamlessly into this environment is pleasing moving forward".

England celebrate with man of the match Chris Woakes. To win inside four days having lost a day to rain is pretty special.

Surely India must now regret their totally arrogant and unprofessional approach to preparations for this series that saw them cut short their only warm-up game in Essex by a day and just go through the motions for three days. "And we deserved to lose", he said.

When asked about the rain-affected conditions, Kohli said that they should not blame the conditions and England deserved to win the game due to their relentless approach on the field. "You can't really think about the conditions, you have to counter them as and when they come to you". When a team plays like that they deserve to be on the winning side.
