2nd Test: Ton-up Woakes more than just Stokes stand

India vs England 2nd Test at Lord's: India lose openers cheaply again before rain stops play on day 2

2nd Test: Ton-up Woakes more than just Stokes stand

It was not certain that Woakes would play this Test. England decided on the second morning to select him over off-spinner Moeen Ali, with Ben Stokes on trial for affray.

Rain interrupted play on the second day of the second cricket Test between India and England at Lord's here today.

Having scored 141 runs in the afternoon session to take the lead past 100, England continued to dominant after tea, with Bairstow reaching his half-century and Woakes following suit shortly after.

Eric Bailly did superbly to deny Iheanacho, and Vardy bundled Shaw off the ball to send in a cross that Gray nearly flicked home. We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.

In a day deeply affected by the weather, England cashed in on conditions and put India's batsmen to the sword.

England lead the series 1-0 after their victory at Edgbaston and opening bowler James Anderson had got them off to a good start, when play eventually began, clean bowling opener Murali Vijay before removing KL Rahul, who was caught behind by keeper Jonny Bairstow.

And to what became the last ball before lunch, Root was lbw for 19 to a off-cutter that kept low, with Bairstow then unbeaten on four.

It was the first time a whole day's Test play in England had been lost to bad weather since August 24, 2013 when the fourth day of the fifth Ashes clash at The Oval was abandoned without a ball bowled.

Rahane, who did all the hard work to survive 44 deliveries, nicked Anderson's straight delivery to first slip Alastair Cook. "I don't think it's just the Indian batsmen who would have struggled". The batsmen could not deal with the swing bowling on offer and slumped to a first innings total of 107 all out. Bairstow was 62 not out and recalled all-rounder Woakes 55 not out.

What's done is done, though, and India will look for a disciplined bowling performance to get back into the game.

This was a day in three parts - all interspersed by showers - with the first dominated by Anderson, the second by a horrendous run-out of Cheteshwar Pujara and the third by Woakes and Anderson again.
