India beat England by 151 runs, with 8 overs to spare, on Monday to take 1-0 lead in the five-match series. This is India’s thirds Test win at Lord’s and the most for them at a venue in England.

 

Fast bowlers Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah made some noise with the bat, helping India recover from a precarious 209/8 to lift the total to 298/8 before Virat Kohli declared the second innings.

 

Set 272 to win in little less than two sessions, England’s batting capitulated and the hosts were skittled for 120 with India’s four pacers combining to take all 10 wickets.
