India vs England 2nd Test Day 4 Live: It was a surrender of sorts for India as they allow England to win the Lords Test by an innings and 159 runs.

It now seemed further rain was India's best hope of avoiding a defeat that would leave them 2-0 down in this five-match series.

This was after England declared their first innings at 396 for seven in 88.1 overs, taking a 289-run lead.

Woakes made a pretty decent stab of replacing him here with his maiden Test century and two second innings wickets to add to his two from the first that earned him the man of the match award ahead of Anderson.

- 1023 balls bowled in this match, making it the third shortest completed Test match in England in the last 100 years. And on Sunday, they had a mighty scare when their batting mainstay and skipper Kohli did not come to the field when the fourth day's play began.

Joe Root won the toss on day 2 and with the kind of environment around the decision to bowl first nearly sealed the game in England's favour.

This, in the form of the sublime bowling of the master craftsman in Jimmy Anderson and an all-round performance of considerable substance from Stokes replacement in Chris Woakes, was the flawless antidote to Bristol. "We deserved to lose this game, the way we went about things", he said.

Cheteshwar Pujara was five not out and Ajinkya Rahane one not out, with India captain Virat Kohli unable to bat in his regular number four position because of back stiffness.

Anderson took five for 20 in swing-friendly conditions as India collapsed to 107 all out in their first innings.

James Anderson then took over with the ball.

Kohli, who did not field when India took the field at the start of play because of a stiff back, was in obvious discomfort.

The very next ball Broad trapped Dinesh Karthik LBW to reduce India to 61-6 as England closed in on a devastating victory. I thought Ollie Pope batted really well in a challenging time. But like I said, I was a bit nervous out there yesterday.

Tailender Ravichandran Ashwin again top-scored for India with an unbeaten 33.

"Even when the ball is doing a bit you have to pitch it in the right areas and the guys were relentless with the ball, " Kohli said.

Anderson took his tally for the match to nine wickets by removing Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami for ducks, before Woakes fittingly finished the job with Ishant Sharma caught at leg slip to put the hosts in firm control of the series.
