England take a further four wickets as India reach 140-6 at tea on day one of the second Test at Lord's.

England have taken a further four wickets in the afternoon session against India on day one of the second Test at Lord's as the tourists reach tea on 140-6.

The hosts struggled in the morning with numerous drop catches, but seamers James Anderson and Liam Plunkett found the breakthrough by dismissing Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay as India reached 73-2 at lunch.

After the break, Anderson added to his wicket tally as Virat Kholi (25) edged to Matt Prior, while Cheteshwar Pujara was the next to fall after India surpassed 100 runs.

The 26-year-old was bowled out by Ben Stokes after hitting 28 from 174 balls, and was replaced by MS Dhoni, who was subjected to a few boos from the Lord's crowd.

However, the captain walked back to the pavilion not long later after Stuart Broad nabbed his first wicket of the Test following a delivery, which was edged to Prior and left Dhoni with just one run to his innings.

Ravindra Jadeja was the next to fall for just three after he was sent packing by Moeen Ali for an lbw.

Ajinkya Rahane (26 not out) and Stuart Binny (6 not out) will return to the crease for the evening session.
