Second successive five-for for Bhuvneshwar

Earlier, Bhuvneshwar's second successive five-for figures helped him get his name on the prestigious Lord's 'Honours Board' after his teammate Ajinkya Rahane got his name up there on the first day.

The UP seamer's figures were second best by an Indian after Amar Singh's 6/35 at the hallowed ground back in 1936.

Ravindra Jadeja (2-46), Moahmmad Shami (1-58) and Murali Vijay (1-12) were the other wicket-takers for India in this innings.

On a pitch where Bhuvneshwar troubled the batsmen with his moving deliveries, his senior partner Ishant Sharma went wicketless after bowling 24 overs. While a few deliveries did beat the bat, the lanky seamer was guilty of not making the batsmen play on a quite a few occasions.

The morning began with England still adrift by 76 runs and only 4 wickets remaining.
