Steve Smith overtakes Virat Kohli in batting rankings

Steve Smith overtakes Virat Kohli in batting rankings

After the 2nd Day of the Test, his help for the ground staff was appreciated by Lord's Cricket Ground management, who in a tweet, wrote, "Not only has he been training with @MCCYC4L recently & but he has also been lending a helping hand to our Groundstaff!"

For all that England's seamers did a supreme job at Lord's, there might well have been a temptation to lob the ball to Rashid late in India's innings - just as Root had done in the closing moments of both India's innings at Edgbaston last week.

Batting legend V.V.S. Laxman, who earned 134 Test caps, feels that the Indian batsmen need to apply themselves in the hard English conditions.

James Anderson and Stuart Broad shared eight wickets before Chris Woakes completed a brilliant return to worldwide duty with the final blow as England thrashed India by an innings and 159 runs in the second Test at Lord's on Sunday.

Nearly nothing went right for India in this Test.

India lost the second Test by an innings and 159 runs on day four at Lord's. They needed 289 runs to make England bat again after the home side declared their first innings closed at 396 for seven in the morning session.

Since Murali was a spinner, Anderson's unique feat means that he becomes the first fast bowler to register the record to his name.

Cheteshwar Pujara, who played patiently for his 17, was bowled off the pad by Broad, before England changed up their tactics to stop Kohli scoring.

Broad was on a roll and Virat Kohli was the next to go.

India: 107 and 130 in 47 overs (R Ashwin 33 n.o.; James Anderson 4/23, Stuart Broad 4/44). His tweet read, "Very poor from India". Credit to England. They were clinical. I'm so chuffed to bits for Chris; he fitted in beautifully.

The team for the fourth and fifth Test would be picked after the third game, starting in Nottingham on Saturday, the result of which would decide the Board's course of action after a disastrous performance left Virat Kohli and Co.

There's an obvious decline in development of skills best suited for tougher conditions and reason for that is the presence of flat pitches across the globe, even for most Test matches. More than anything, we allowed the English bowlers to come out on top by not playing our natural stroke playing game.The #TeamIndia think tank has a lot to ponder over in the coming days. Two senior India players (M Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane) were accommodated for A team games. While we all want to stand by our team and support them when they don " t do well, going down without a fight is very disappointing to watch. "Hope they have the confidence and mental strength to comeback from this", tweeted Sehwag.
