India beat England after gripping final day at Lord’s

England were condemned to a demoralising Lord’s defeat as India roared to victory on a gripping final day at the second LV= Insurance Test.

The hosts were reduced to clinging for dear life in their second innings, unable to survive for 60 overs after surrendering an advantage they had spent three days painstakingly carving out.

In the end they were rounded up for 120 with 8.1 overs left on the fifth evening, Mohammed Siraj bowling James Anderson to seal an unforgettable 151-run victory at the home of cricket.

The match will go down as one of the most compelling see-saw contests the famous old ground has witnessed in recent times, with the constant hum of on-field verbal sparring only adding to what was a conventionally classic encounter.

India had seized the momentum through the unlikeliest of sources as career-best knocks from tailenders Mohammed Shami (56no) and Jasprit Bumrah (34no) unexpectedly left India in control.

England slumped to 67 for five as their top-order collapsed, but Jos Buttler threatened to pull things out of the fire with a 96-ball rearguard that was not quite enough.
