Jimmy Anderson showed he remains a deadly proposition in English conditions taking 5-20 as England bowled out India for a miserly 107 on the second day of the second test at Lord's.

But the 36-year-old swing bowler was ably assisted by Chris Woakes, whose spell of 2-19 in an extended final session included the key scalp of India skipper Kohli.

His innings, which has been in progress more than three-and-a-half hours, meant Woakes" name was now on all three Lord's honours boards that record centuries, five-wicket innings returns and 10-wicket match hauls in Tests at the "home of cricket'.

Perhaps it is the nearby canals of Little Venice but Woakes seems to find himself at home at Lord's, this is now his third Test at the ground and he's taken 16 wickets at average of 9.93 and made 244 runs at 122.00.

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

Virat Kohli and co will look for early wickets on Saturday as the second England-India Test match enters its third day.

Having been bowled out for 107 on day two, India will have harboured hopes of at least limiting England's lead when they reduced the hosts to 89-4 at lunch.

Chris Woakes gave Bairstow fine support as England stretched their lead.

Goalscorer Shaw said: "It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored. Of Pogba's penalty, which came after just 75 seconds, he said: "A very good penalty taker".

That easy wicket for England left India at 3/15.

Shami changed the angle after not finding success initially and the move paid off immediately with Keaton Jennings (11) getting trapped plumb in front off a full delivery.

Even Kohli failed to make an impact, scoring just 23 runs.

However, Woakes (120no) and Bairstow (93) batted them out of contention either side of tea and, after day one and much of day two were washed out and more rain forecast for Sunday and Monday, the weather may provide India with their best chance of escaping with a draw.

But a promising innings of 28 ended when Pope was lbw to all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

Seven balls later Alastair Cook joined Jennings back in the hut.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (29) then joined Rahane in the middle to add 22 runs for the seventh wicket before the old warhorse James Anderson came back to add more misery to the visitors with the dismissal of the Mumbai batsman.
