Things, it has to be said, are going pretty well for England and nowhere more so than in the bowling department.Batting concerns remain, but with the ball in hand England have been rampant, with nearly everything going their way.Perhaps nothing sums this up better than the performance of Stuart Broad on the final day at Lord's on Sunday. "We were lucky, but the way Jimmy [Anderson] swung it was unbelievable in the first innings".

Rashid, who made £12,500 ($21,900) for his walk-on role, was not called upon to weave his leg-spin magic in England's innings and 159-run win over India in the second Test at Lord's.

Mail Today called India's performance a "humiliating defeat" while The Hindu newspaper's headline said "Another abysmal batting display sends India to its doom" after the team were bowled out for 107 and 130.

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

England celebrate with man of the match Chris Woakes. By the time India's second innings at Lord's started he had three wickets in the series at an average of 40. 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.

The driver fled the scene and Szabo - unconscious - was rushed to the hospital in critical condition early Sunday, officials said. The family said Szabo was waiting on a ride to take him to the hotel and was knocking on auto windows.

Barring captain Kohli, none of the top-order batsmen have found ways to survive, let alone score runs in the first two Tests.

But Kohli, who hopes to be fit for the third Test in Nottingham starting on Saturday, could only watch as Broad's superb late inswinger knocked over off stump to bowl Cheteshwar Pujara for 17. After the lunch, it was Stuart Broad's turn to torment the visitors. I'm so chuffed to bits for Chris; he fitted in beautifully.

India captain Virat Kohli on Sky Sports: "I am not very proud of the way we played. And we deserved to lose", he said. Credit to England. They were clinical. "It was after speaking to them that we decided that white ball matches will be held before the Tests", an unnamed senior BCCI official told PTI. Two senior India players (M Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane) were accommodated for A team games.

Unfortunately for Broad, he neither completed a record-breaking third Test hat-trick, nor got to continue bowling much longer, rain forcing the players off for an early Tea. They not learning from mistakes has been very disappointing to watch. "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", he said.
