"James Anderson and Stuart Broad handed out a lesson in adaptability to India's bowlers".

The hosts had declared on 396-7, with Chris Woakes finishing on 137 not out, before Anderson reduced India to 17-2. "I was feeling in really good rhythm". On the other hand, Ben Stokes missed out for the second Test but England didn't miss him at all. In the second test, India didn't even come close to England's total as they lost by an innings and 15 runs.

England's Chris Woakes has broken into the top ten of the ICC's all-rounder rankings following his man of the match performance at Lord's.

England record wicket-taker Anderson claimed match figures of 9-43 and Broad took five wickets as the home side built on their opening Test victory at Edgbaston.

So often attacking the outside edge, Anderson nipped the ball back to Murali Vijay and he only managed to get a feather through to wicket-keeper Bairstow as his Lord's Test ended with a pair.

KL Rahul was undone in similar fashion, pinned on the crease by Anderson, before Broad's afternoon spell disrupted the middle order to leave them 61-6.

NASA launches mission to fly closer to the Sun than ever before
The sun is 93 million miles from Earth. "So we're already in a region of very, very interesting coronal area", Fox said. The heat shield is built to withstand radiation equivalent to up to about 500 times the Sun's radiation on Earth.

Broad then dismissed captain Virat Kohli (17) and wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik (0) off consecutive balls to reduce the Indians to 66 for six in their second innings at tea.

"We will not sit around and say that we didn't have the best of conditions". But it wasn't to be as the batsmen once again cut a sorry picture after mustering 107 in the first innings that lasted just 35.2 overs.

Winning captain Joe Root praised his bowlers.

"[Chris Woakes' century] shows the importance of batting deep".

"This is payback time a little bit for England after losing 4-0 in India and I don't see them letting up. It's awesome what confidence that kind of spell can give you, and also to bat with Jonny in the manner that he did". His tweet read, "Very poor from India".

That partnership helped England recover from a top-order collapse that saw them slump to 89 for four at lunch on the third day. The pitch was green and under covers for over 24 hours, and while that ensured that India also wanted to field first (had India won the toss), it didn't force them to play an extra seamer.

Stamina will play pivotal role in who wins 100th PGA
The four-time PGA Championship victor made five birdies and one bogey through eight holes and finished with 10 consecutive pars. It also tied the 36-hole record for all majors, matching Jordan Spieth at the 2015 Masters, Martin Kaymer at the 2014 U.S.

Rashid´s ´achievement´ was far from unique in the 141-year history of Test cricket, with 13 previous instances of players having equally quiet games.

What did the pundit make of it?

"We've got to pull up our socks and produce better cricket India".

"It was very impressive from the bowling department, but there are still question marks with the batting".

The irony was that Ed Smith, England´s new national selector, found himself involved in a huge row with Yorkshire, the bowler´s county, when he recalled Rashid to the Test squad ahead of the series opener at Edgbaston.

The team for the fourth and fifth Test would be picked after the third game, starting in Nottingham on Saturday, the result of which would decide the Board's course of action after a disastrous performance left Virat Kohli and Co. "We need a competitive game, and a close series".
