Given India's struggles against the moving ball on the opening day, when they were dismissed for 107, England could have afforded to declare earlier, particularly as Anderson found movement straight away.

Warwickshire favourite Woakes, recalled after England omitted Ben Stokes because of a clash with his fellow pace-bowling all-rounder´s trial for affray, had missed the hosts´ 31-run win in the first Test at his Edgbaston home ground last week because of fitness concerns following knee and calf injuries.

England's highest sixth-wicket partnership against India has given the hosts a good chance of taking a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Anderson, who has 544 Test wickets, will have his eyes on equaling Ian Botham's record of 27 five-wicket hauls in the longest format.

Sam Curran struck 22 not out from 24 balls as England chose to continue batting despite Sunday's forecast predicting rain.

"In T20Is and ODIs, the bowlers get tested all the time". The Indian batsmen have themselves to blame as much as the top-class bowling from the English fast-bowlers led by James Anderson.

But it was new-ball partner Mohammed Shami who struck first when, from around the wicket, he had Keaton Jennings, aiming across the line, lbw for 11.

Even Kohli failed to make an impact, scoring just 23 runs.

But a promising innings of 28 ended when Pope was lbw to all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

That brought debutant Ollie Pope to the crease and Surrey's talented 20-year-old showed no signs of nerves as he combined with Root to take the score to 77-2. He and Cheteshwar Pujara held firm until the rain arrived.

Earlier, India made a decision to play with two spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, whereas Cheteshwar Pujara had a horrific return to Test cricket. But Kuldeep rarely troubled Bairstow, who cover-drove him for four to complete a 76-ball fifty featuring seven boundaries.
