Twitter reactions: England romp India to win by an innings and 159 runs at Lord’s

India suffered an embarrassing 159-run innings defeat in the second Test against England after yet another batting failure on day four at Lord’s, leaving the struggling visitors 0-2 behind in the five-match series.

Indian batsmen failed to learn from their mistakes and were all at sea against the moving ball as the second innings folded up for 130 in 47 overs. James Anderson (4-23) once again toyed with the opposition, taking his match tally to nine, and equally effective was Stuart Broad (4-44).


England, who resumed at overnight 356 for six, declared their first innings at 396 for seven earlier on Sunday with Chris Woakes staying unbeaten on 137.

With the rain threat looming large over the remainder of the game, India needed to bat for survival. But it wasn’t to be as the batsmen once again cut a sorry picture after mustering 107 in the first innings that lasted just 35.2 overs.

The crushing loss has now given the Indian team management plenty to think about ahead of the third Test beginning August 18 at Nottingham.


Here is how Twitter reacted to the match:
