What happened in the last 3 Test matches between India and England at Lord's?


Kevin Pietersen's 202 sunk India's ship at Lord's after they opted to field. England amassed a mammoth 474/8 and then bundled India out for 286. Rahul Dravid's fighting 103 went in vain as the rest of the side failed to come up with vital contributions.

In the second innings, it was Matt Prior's 103 and Stuart Broad's 74 that helped England declare on 269/6. They handed India an almost impossible target of 458. The visitors could only muster 261 in return and crashed to a 196-run defeat. James Anderson enjoyed an excellent second innings, recording a fifer in England's massive victory.

India were put into bat and rode on Ajinkya Rahane's 103 in the first innings to post a modest 295. England responded with 319 in their first innings. Gary Ballance (110) and Liam Plunkett (55) scored the majority of the runs for the hosts.

The second innings saw some vital contributions from Murali Vijay (95), Ravindra Jadeja (68) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (52) as India finished with 342, setting England a stiff 319-run target to chase. Ishant Sharma was India's hero at Lord's with a seven-wicket haul in the second innings as England were bundled out for 223. It was India's only win, yet a historic one, as they lost the series 3-1.

India lost the series 4-1 and one of their biggest losses was at Lord's. They were dismissed for a paltry 107 in the first innings and had to watch as England's lower order ran amok. Chris Woakes notched up an unbeaten 137, while Jonny Bairstow (93) and Sam Curran (40) chipped in with vital contributions.

The second innings was equally worse as India saw another batting collapse. This time they managed just 110 on the board as they fell to a humiliating innings and 95-run loss. They will look to set that record straight at Lord's in 2021.
