Kohli and co face media ire after Lord’s defeat

"I am not very proud of the way we played", India captain Virat Kohli told Sky Sports. "Excellent spells of fast bowling by @jimmy9 and @StuartBroad8, with a fine performance by @chriswoakes", Tendulkar wrote on Twitter.

India have been bundled out for 162, 107 and 130 in their last three innings.

Having lost the first two Tests, India face a daunting task to make a comeback in the five-match series.

"The stats proved that the ball moved in this (Lord's) Test match more than any other Test match in last three years anywhere in the world".

England thrashed the visitors by an innings and 159 runs to go 2-0 up in the series.

Fittingly, it was Woakes who wrapped up the win for England as Ishant Sharma was caught down the leg-side.

Woakes made a pretty decent stab of replacing him here with his maiden Test century and two second innings wickets to add to his two from the first that earned him the man of the match award ahead of Anderson.

He praised the England bowlers for the fantastic display. "This is payback time a little bit for England after losing 4-0 in India and I don't see them letting up". Can't really think about those things (conditions not in favour).

"It is a lower back issue, coming up again and again, purely because of the workload and the number of matches I have been playing", Kohli said when asked if he batted with an injury which affected his movement on the crease.

Rashid on Sunday thus became just the 14th player in the 141-year-old history of Test cricket, and the first Englishman in 13 years to complete a Test match without bowling, batting, taking a catch or effecting a run-out throughout the game. "I feel like, I won't say 28, but 32", he said.

He now has 553 Test wickets and is just 10 behind Australian Glenn McGrath's record for the most wickets taken by a seamer in Test cricket.

Assuming the sun returns at Trent Bridge, and that India's batsmen cope rather better with England's quick bowlers than they did in the first two Tests, Rashid can expect his workload to increase as the series wears on - not least if England start to turn half an eye to their next Test challenge in Sri Lanka in November, when Rashid's wiles will doubtless be in higher demand.

It was a collapse preceded by Ajinkya Rahane, who threw away his wicket after a quiet post-lunch session with a loose shot at a wide ball from Broad.

Kohli could score just 17 from 29 deliveries before becoming Stuart Board's victim in the second innings that folded for 130 in 47 overs. India's captain struggled with back pain before being caught at bat pad by debutant Ollie Pope.

When India's openers originally saw off Broad and Anderson in their first innings at Edgbaston, it was Curran who stepped up, removing the entire top three.

In that case, senior bowler Ravichandran Ashwin looks a likely candidate for the leadership role.
