India beat England by 151 runs at Lord’s to take 1-0 series lead


Virat Kohli led India defeated England by 151 runs in a fifth-day thriller in the in the second Test at Lord's London, taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. England were bowled out for 120 in 51.5 overs while chasing 272, with skipper Joe Root top-scoring with 33. 

Jasprit Bumrah (3-33) got India off to a flying start by dismissing Rory Burns for a duck in the first over, before Mohammed Shami (1-13) produced an unplayable out-swinger to dismiss fellow opener Dom Sibley for naught. Soon after tea, Bumrah got the big wicket of the in-form Joe Root (33) by edging to opposite skipper Virat Kohli at first slip.

Jos Buttler, who was dropped on two by Kohli, briefly threatened to salvage a draw for the hosts but all hopes of such a result were extinguished by Mohammed Siraj (4-32), who accounted for both Buttler and James Anderson in the same over, handing India only their third-ever test win at Lord's.
