England beat India by an innings and 159 runs in 2nd Test

London, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 12th Aug, 2018 ) :England beat India by an innings and 159 runs to win the second Test at Lord's on Sunday.

Victory, achieved on the fourth day of a rain-marred match featuring a total first-day washout, put England 2-0 up in this five-match series.

India slumped to 130 all out in their second innings, with James Anderson taking his 100th Test wicket at Lord's en route to four for 23, with Stuart Broad's four for 44 featuring two wickets in two balls.

But, appropriately, Chris Woakes ended the match when he had Ishant Sharma caught at leg-slip by debutant Ollie Pope.

Woakes, recalled in place of Ben Stokes after his fellow all-rounder was omitted because of an ongoing trial for affray, made 137 not out -- his maiden Test century -- in England's first innings 396 for seven declared.
