England vs India 2nd Test, Day 3: Hosts lose openers Jennings, Cook

All-rounder Woakes registered his maiden global century, while Bairstow scored his 19th Test fifty as the duo shared a 189-run stand for the sixth wicket.

India, who trailed by 289 runs from the first innings, were 17 for two when rain stopped play half an hour before the scheduled lunch interval. "That feeling of raising your bat to a standing ovation at Lord's is a bit of a boyhood dream".

Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar has criticised India's tour planning after another poor batting display by Virat Kohli's men in the second Test against England at Lord's.

The 29-year-old Woakes is playing in place of Ben Stokes, who was forced to miss the second test as he stands trial in a court in Bristol charged with affray.

And to what became the last ball before lunch, Root was lbw for 19 to a off-cutter that kept low, with Bairstow then unbeaten on four.

Inbetween Shami's strikes, Ishant Sharma had Alastair Cook (21) caught behind and Hardik Pandya (2-66) removed England debutant Ollie Pope for 28 to help bring India back into the match.

Unfortunately for the tourists Buttler got 24 off 35 balls - quick scoring on this wicket - before he was LBW off Shami (three for 67).

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn't as exciting as the Note 8, it's still a very, very refined and capable flagship smartphone . The camera uses artificial intelligence to identify up to 20 types of scenes, including landscapes, food, flowers and people.

With Woakes, the first of England's three bowling all-rounders, at the crease alongside Bairstow, India could sense an opportunity to expose the tail. "And Woakes and Bairstow took the game away".

Earlier, India chose to play with two spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, whereas Cheteshwar Pujara had a horrific return to Test cricket.

"I went from 60 to 80 pretty quickly and all of a sudden started thinking about it".

Anderson bowled one at a back of a length outside off and the ball jagged back in to take the inside edge before landing in Bairstow's gloves.

Anderson's new ball partner Stuart Broad then joined the party with the wicket of Ashwin, who looked good during his 38-ball stay, that also included four courageous hits to the fence.

England won a tense series opener by 31 runs at Edgbaston.
