On the Day 2, English bowlers used the conditions perfectly and restricted India for just 107 runs in the first innings.

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.

England captain Joe Root hailed his bowlers and centurion: "The bowling unit were exceptional throughout the whole game - the conditions were in our favour but you still have to ask questions and we did".

"We've set it up nicely to be 2-0 up, but there are three big games against a good side and we're going to have to play well", Root said.

Joe Root won the toss on day 2 and with the kind of environment around the decision to bowl first nearly sealed the game in England's favour.

England celebrate with man of the match Chris Woakes.

Speaking after the match, visiting skipper Virat Kohli admitted saying, "We deserved to lose".

But it was new-ball partner Mohammed Shami who struck first when, from around the wicket, he had Keaton Jennings, aiming across the line, lbw for 11.

On Thursday, the visitors dominated the first session of the day, reducing England to 89/4 and then 131/5, but Chris Woakes (120*) and Jonny Bairstow (93) took it away from the visitors, putting on a 189-run stand to help England head into stumps with a lead of 250.

Anderson picked up where he left off in the first innings (5-20), having Murali Vijay caught behind for his second duck of the match.

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.

Rahane (one not out) was alongside Cheteshwar Pujara (5no) when drizzle brought about an early lunch.

Kohli, who did not field when India took the field at the start of play because of a stiff back, was in obvious discomfort.

Hardik Pandya (26) and Ravichandran Ashwin (33 not out) showed defiance to put on India's highest partnership of the match - 55 runs for the seventh wicket - but Woakes again showed his value. Even when the ball's doing a bit, you have to pitch it in the right areas. "I should be okay", he said. I thought Ollie Pope batted really well in a challenging time.

Fittingly, it was Woakes who wrapped up the win for England as Ishant Sharma was caught down the leg-side.
