Ton-up Woakes Lords it over India in second Test

Virat Kohli

"It's still a bit of a blur - incredible feeling", said Woakes, who hit 18 boundaries and took 2-19 in India's first innings of 107.

James Anderson, England " s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, took full advantage of the swing-friendly conditions with a return of five for 20.

Chris Woakes, recalled for this match after fellow pace-bowling all-rounder Ben Stokes was omitted because of an ongoing trial for affray, was then 120 not out, with Sam Curran unbeaten on 22.

Their unbroken sixth-wicket stand was so far worth 99 runs and all the more valuable for the fact that England had slumped to 89 for four on the stroke of lunch. By contrast, Saturday " s play started under sunny blue skies that promised to make life easier for the batsmen.

Woakes' top Test score was 66 before this innings but he soon reached his first century for England off just 129 balls in an innings which included 15 boundaries.

Kohli failed to take the field while England batted on, reportedly because of a back strain, and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane replaced him at No 4.

Indian cricket team legend Sachin Tendulkar believes that Test cricket should challenge batsmen more in order to keep the format interesting for the fans.

The hosts moved to 28-0 in the morning session before opener Keaton Jennings was caught on the crease and trapped LBW by Mohammed Shami.

When Jos Buttler went for 24 - Shami's third leg-before wicket - England looked capable of crumbling again.

India's decision to replace pacer Umesh Yadav with slow left-arm bowler Kuldeep Yadav came into question as the tourists struggled to maintain control on a wicket that appeared better suited to seamers than spinners. But Bairstow, as he's often done before, held firm while attacking the loose ball.

Woakes, whose two for 19 on Friday included the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli, followed Bairstow to the landmark in 71 balls with his seventh four.
