Virat Kohli to break 4-year-long practice at Lord's? Leaked team-sheet suggests so

Earlier, on the Day 2, English skipper Joe Root opted to bowl after winning the toss and invited India to bat first.

Meanwhile Chris Woakes marked his return to global cricket with two wickets for 19 runs in six overs, removing both India captain Virat Kohli (24) and Hardik Pandya (11) via slip catches by Jos Buttler.

Virat Kohli was involved in an almighty mix-up that led to Cheteshwar Pujara being run out as India were skittled for 107.

England lead the five-match series 1-0 after their thrilling 31-run win at Edgbaston last weekend.

"I thought the wicket, because of the weather we can not control, it was to bat on", he said.

Captain Kohli hasn't played the same XI in successive Tests for 36 matches, dating back to the 2014 Adelaide Test in which he led India in whites for the first time in his career.

"When we bowl like that we would bowl most teams out in the world, we were that good".

James Anderson said that there were few batting line-ups that could have lived with England's seam attack after they ripped through India on the second day at Lord's.

With clouds expected to hang over the iconic cricket ground over the next few days, India may rethink their strategy of playing two spinners.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day. Such scrambled thinking then did for Pujara after India's No3 set off for a single in Anderson's next over.

The last thing India needed when play resumed was a run out.

Kohli responded, only to change his mind and retreat.

The exit of England " s all-time leading Test run-scorer meant 20-year-old debutant batsman Ollie Pope walked out with the hosts in trouble at 32 for two off 8.2 overs.

It was a similar story with Pandya, Woakes putting the disappointment of a dropped catch aside to strike with his very next ball.

Anderson, who has 544 Test wickets, will have his eyes on equaling Ian Botham's record of 27 five-wicket hauls in the longest format.
