India vs England, 2nd Test: Injury scare for Virat Kohli at Lord's?

Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, the world's leading Test wicket-taker, is the only other bowler to capture 100 wickets at a single venue.

Rangana Herath trails behind Anderson, short of just a single wicket, with 99 scalps at Galle International Stadium.

James Anderson picked up two wickets before early Lunch was taken on Day 4.

The second day was also marred by rain but the toss finally took place, which was won by Joe Root as England made a decision to bowl first.

Cheteshwar Pujara was five not out and Ajinkya Rahane one not out, with India captain Virat Kohli unable to bat in his regular number four position because of back stiffness.

England take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series with to Trent Bridge - live on Sky Sports Cricket from Saturday - where, despite struggling with a back injury at Lord's, Kohli hinted he would be fit to play. "This is the first time in our last five Test matches that we've been outplayed".

As in that innings, Sunday's overcast conditions were ideal for the 36-year-old Lancashire swing bowler.

After England captain Joe Root had declared his team's first innings closed at 396 for seven, Vijay pushed forward to a full delivery in Anderson's second over and was caught behind off a thin inside edge by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.

A quick word from Bairstow helped Woakes to compose himself and a pull shot over mid-wicket for three took him to the landmark off just 129 balls.

England had looked like wasting an inspired bowling performance that dismissed India so cheaply on a rain-interrupted second day.

England resumed on 357 for six, already 250 runs ahead of India's meagre first-innings 107 all out.

Woakes faced 177 balls including 21 fours, ending the innings unbeaten on 137.

Kohli scored a gritty century in the first Test against England at Edgbaston, which was also his maiden hundred in the country.

Their unbroken sixth-wicket stand was so far worth 99 runs and all the more valuable for the fact that England had slumped to 89 for four on the stroke of lunch. When asked about it, the Indian cricket team skipper said that the issue will need a bit of rehabilitation but the back issue will not be posing a bigger threat.
