England bowled India all out for 107 in its first innings on a rain-interrupted second day.

For much of the day, thanks again to the weather, it looked as though the fans were going to be restricted to just over eight overs of cricket but then the weather cleared in the evening and India must have wished the rain had stuck around.

Both off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and recalled left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav went wicketless, with India having cause to regret dropping paceman Umesh Yadav.

After bowling India out for 107, England reached 357-6 by the close on day three after Woakes and Bairstow shared a stunning partnership worth 189.

In the second test match between England vs India at Lord's cricket stadium in London, Virat Kohli and company will look forward to bounce back on track.

India now trail 1-0 in the five-match Test series after a 31-run loss at Edgbaston.

Together with Jonny Bairstow, Woakes soon set about turning that around. We hardly bowled any bad balls, we didn't give them much to hit, and when you build pressure like that all day, no matter who you are, it is hard.

Chris Woakes celebrates his first Test century, the all-rounder ended the day on 120 not out. Off the very next ball, Pujara got run-out and play was halted immediately after that.

Chris Woakes gave Bairstow fine support as England stretched their lead.

The hosts moved to 28-0 in the morning session before opener Keaton Jennings was caught on the crease and trapped LBW by Mohammed Shami.

With the sun shining it looked like ideal batting conditions, but the rare rainfall of the previous two days in London still gave the India attack hope they could bowl their side back into he match.

Thereafter, wickets began to fall in heaps with Hardik Pandya (10) falling to Woakes before left-armer Sam Curran took Dinesh Karthik's (1) stumps for a ride. The 20-year-old played only 15 First-Class matches before this clash leaving many to wonder whether the young gun had what it takes to take on the world's best side. The wicket offered the bowlers something, he outscored Joe root at the other end and so far at least it is the best score of the match.
