  • Adil Rashid on Sunday became just the 14th player and first Englishman in 13 years to complete a Test without bowling batting taking a catch or effecting a run out as England beat India to win the Lord's Test and take 2-0 lead in the five-match Tes

India are the world number one Test team, a statement which many will refuse to agree with after seeing the performances of the Indian players in the first two Test matches against England, which they lost by 31 runs and followed it up with a loss by an innings and - runs.

With the India captain hampered by his back, Broad forced him on to the back foot and kept him playing and missing outside off stump, before Kohli gloved the ball on to his hip and the catch was taken by Ollie Pope at a deepish short leg.

"It's five days to go".

"I can understand they have taken the day off today. they are still licking the wounds of the defeat at Lord's but they should have been planning to leave for Nottingham after today which would have been the last day of the Lord's Test and practice from tomorrow", Gavaskar told India Today. "I should be okay", he said.

Indian batsmen failed to learn from their mistakes and were all at sea against the moving ball as the second innings folded up for 130 in 47 overs.

Anderson picked up nine wickets in the second Test at Lord's.

"Not very proud of the way we played to be honest". The selectors should give them a call-up and see how they perform at the top level.

"India are doing everything they can, but.we've given them nothing".

The Saudi Kingdom was less than thrilled about Canada's "interference", saying it had no business to meddle in its local affairs. Saudi Arabia stunned officials on Sunday by announcing it was suspending future trade with Canada and severing diplomatic ties.

Asked if the conditions had favoured the opposition, Kohli said, "We can't really think about those things".

Where Indian batsmen struggled, their English counterparts found no demons in the Lord's pitch as they amassed 396 for 7 before declaring.

"He's not just good when the conditions suit him, but in these conditions he's the best in the world", Bayliss said.

But captain Joe Root has already warned against complacency.

"Less stressful, definitely. Fantastic from the very first ball".

They lost the toss and were dismissed for 107 after being inserted in the first innings in conditions made for swing bowling, before England batted in the best weather of the match. (But) Jonny and Chris Woakes batted extremely well, and then the bowlers did the business again'. I'm so chuffed to bits for Chris; he fitted in beautifully. But it's important we don't get complacent, arrogant.

"Obviously, we have another day now to rest and recover, get our heads around what we've done this week". Ravi has got a big job, and Virat too, to bring the guys back and the only way to do it is through hard work. Lot of fellas that weren't getting headlines, but you've got to pull together as a team. This abject performance has also drawn the ire of many Indian greats who have slammed the management for not preparing enough for the challenges and also for not learning from past mistakes.
