India vs England Second Cricket Test

2nd Test, Lord's

Day five: Ishant Sharma bowls India to victory

Ishant Sharma claimed seven wickets on the final day of the second test at Lord's on Monday, to bowl India to a 95-run victory over England, their first overseas win since 2011. It was India's only second victory in 82 years at Lord's, and it has been 28 years since India last won a Test at this venue. Kapil Dev`s team achieved the feat back in June 1986 winning by five wickets, bringing down curtains on David Gower's captaincy.

Resuming at 105/4 in pursuit of 319, Joe Root and Moeen Ali survived until the final ball before lunch when the latter fell to Ishant Sharma. Man of the Match Sharma finished with career-best figures of 7-74, including five wickets in 33 balls. James Anderson was last to fall, run out by Ravindra Jadeja. The hearing for the Anderson-Jadeja spat starts tomorrow.

Day three: Murali Vijay Keeps India Afloat

India were 169/4 at stumps in the second innings on Day 3, leading England by 145 runs. Liam Plunkett took two wickets in two balls, as India lost three wickets for five runs in 19 balls to be 123/4 before Murali Vijay (59*) and India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (12*) came together to score 46 runs and steady the innings.

Earlier, England's tail wagged effectively as they added exactly 100 runs to an overnight 219 for six before the hosts were bowled out for 319. Bhuvneshwar's second successive five-for figures helped him get his name on the prestigious Lord's 'Honours Board' after his teammate Ajinkya Rahane got his name up there on the first day.

Day one: Rahane century rescues India

Ajinkya Rahane scored a mature and classic century on a difficult surface to help rescue India’s first innings on the opening day of the second test against England at Lord’s on Thursday. England had reduced the visitors to 145 for seven on a bowler-friendly pitch early in the final session, but the 26-year-old Indian batsman playing in just his seventh Test match scored 103 and added 90 for the eighth wicket with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (36), ensuring India had rallied to 290 for nine at the close up from 145 for seven at one stage.

Rahane became only the ninth Indian to hit a century at Lord's and the first in his maiden appearance at the venue since Sourav Ganguly's debut ton in 1996. The toss was won by England, and both teams fielded unchanged teams.
Lord's Cricket Test, India vs England, Day one: India 290/9 (AM Rahane 103, Anderson 4-55) vs England

Debutant Stuart Binny scored his maiden fifty to help India steer the first Test against England towards a draw on the fifth and final day at Trent Bridge on Sunday. At tea, Binny made 78, and first-innings batting hero Bhuvneshwar Kumar made 63 not out. Binny fell five short of his father Roger Binny's highest Test score of 83. The pair added 91 for the eighth wicket.

Day Four: England's Jimmy Anderson and Joe Root stun India

The highest ever 10th wicket stand in Tests - 198 between Joe Root and James Anderson - took England to a highly unlikely first-innings lead against India at Trent Bridge. They came together with England in trouble at 298/9 in response to India’s 457 all out, and the innings finally came to a close when Anderson was eventually out for 81 from 130 balls - 19 short of first Test hundred by a No.11. Root made 154 not out. However, India were 167 for three in their second innings at stumps, a lead of 128 runs.

Day Two: Bhuvneshwar, Shami give India upper hand

A remarkable 111-run partnership between tailenders Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami - who both got their maiden Test fifties - gave India the upper hand after the second day's play as England trailed the visitors by 414 runs in their first innings of the first Test at Trent Bridge here on Thursday. At stumps, England were batting at 43/1 in 17 overs.

India were 342/5 at lunch but lost four wickets – Jadeja (25), Dhoni, debutant Stuart Binny (1) and Ishant Sharma (1) – all in a span of two runs, to collapse from 344/5 to 346/9 in the space of 23 balls. The partnership between the tailenders was India's second best ever for the 10th wicket after Zaheer Khan and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar scored 133 against Bangladesh in December 2004.
Trent Bridge Cricket Test, India vs England, Day Two: England 43/1 (Robson 20, Shami 1/15) trail India 457 (Vijay 146, Dhoni 82, Bhuvneshwar 58, Mohammed Shami 51*, Anderson 3/109) by 414 runs

Day One: India's Murali Vijay frustrates England

Murali Vijay hit an unbeaten 122 as India made slow progress to reach 259/4 against the home team on a lifeless Trent Bridge pitch. He raced to his first 50 in 68 balls, his second took 146 and there were 35 consecutive dot balls until the close of play. Dhoni remained not out on 50, bringing up his 30th Test fifty from 64 deliveries in the final over of the day. Before lunch, India had scored 106 runs for the loss of one wicket, that of Shikhar Dhawan.
