England bowl out India for 107 thanks to the bowling of James Anderson, who took 5-20 on day two of the second Test at Lord's.

James Anderson has put England in control of their second Test against India at Lord's after taking 5-20 on a rain-affected second day.

Following on from yesterday's first washout at this venue in 17 years, the tourists completely capitulated as they were bowled all out for 107.

Anderson struck twice early on prior to a lengthy rain delay, bowling Murali Vijay for a duck with the fifth ball of the day and then KL Rahul for eight runs.

On 11-2 when play resumed, India were unable to find any sort of momentum as the bad weather again brought things to a halt.

Cheteshwar Pujara (1) was next to go, being run out after a misunderstanding with Virat Kohli, with the Men in Blue left languishing on 15-3 at that point.

The rain cleared in the evening, and that would prove good news for England as the wickets quickly fell - Kohli going for 23, Hardik Pandya for 11 and Dinesh Karthik just the solitary run.

Anderson would go on to wrap up the innings by taking Ishant Sharma lbw after Mohammed Shami (10*) had helped to give his side a temporary reprieve when edging them past the 100-run mark.
