On Friday, during the rain-affected day two of the second Test, Arjun, who is now in London for a training session with MCC Young Cricketers, helped out the grand staff at Lord's.

Warwickshire favourite Woakes, who missed England's 31-run win in the first Test at his Edgbaston home ground last week because of concerns he was not fully fit following knee and calf injuries, took two for 19 - including the prize wicket of India captain Virat Kohli - as the tourists were dismissed for just 107 in their first innings at Lord's on Friday.

In the brief morning session, Anderson got England off to a fine start, clean bowling opener Murali Vijay before removing Lokesh Rahul, who was caught behind by keeper Jonny Bairstow.

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

Bairstow reached his half-century first, cover driving wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav for four, before Woakes outpaced him.

Scholes said the club has undoubtedly brought in talented managers, but they still lack the edge when it matters the most. I came in the academy, I grew up. "But I am happy with the performance of my team, it's encouraging for the future.

England were then forced to wait more than three hours before getting a third crack at India at 5.10pm.

Thereafter, wickets began to fall in heaps with Hardik Pandya (10) falling to Woakes before left-armer Sam Curran took Dinesh Karthik's (1) stumps for a ride.

Hosts England lost Keaton Jennings for 11 runs after a quick start, as Mohammed Shami provided the breakthrough for India.

What's done is done, though, and India will look for a disciplined bowling performance to get back into the game.

That brought in new cap Ollie Pope. As first innings go in Test cricket it was a good one. However, the other batsmen offered little to no resistance and James Anderson ended up with figures of 5/20.

Pope's wicket left the hosts on 77 for three, with two experience batsmen at the crease in Root and Jonny Bairstow. Root LBW to Shami for a less than fluent 28.

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.
