India won by 95 runs | England Vs India Live Score, 2nd Test

Third Test at The Oval, 1936
India avoided the follow-on but could not prevent a huge loss. Wally Hammond smashed 217 and was involved in a 266-run stand for the 4th wicket with Worthington who scored 128. The hosts asked India to follow-on as the visitors trailed by 249 runs after being bowled out for 222. India started their second innings strongly but all the hard work was undone by a superb spell of 7/80 by Sir Gubby Allen, which was his career best figures. Needing 64 runs to win, England achieved it in 13 overs.
Before we sign off, help yourself to part 4 of our summary of India-England Tests in England. Take care and cheerio!
Congratulations to India for sculpting a famous win. They go 1-0 up in the 5-match Test series. It will take a great deal of character from the hosts to comeback and restore parity. Do Cook and his men have it in them to pick themselves up and dust themselves off? Or will India ride on the momentum? It was a great pleasure bringing you the thrills and spills of this Test. Cheers for your warm company. Do join us back for the third Test, which starts on July 27 at The Rose Bowl.
Meanwhile, England continue to be haunted by the old demons. They lack the killer instinct to grab the game by the scruff of its neck, they seem content to wait for things to happen. Their captain looks mentally shot. So does their wicket-keeper. Bell's batting has also been thrown out of gear. England's core is disintegrating.
India finally exorcise the demons of Dominica (2011), Johannesburg (2013) and Wellington (2014). Rahane's ton, Bhuvi's all-round heroics, Vijay's solidity, Jadeja's uninhibited counter-attack, Ishant's killer spell all plunge into history as India break their pesky 15 Test win-less streak away from home. This was also India's second only Test triumph at Lord's, 28 years after Kapil Dev's boys achieved the feat.
Alec Stewart: Congratulations to India. You've thoroughly deserved your fantastic win at Lords. You've outplayed England on a very English pitch. #EngvInd
Kevin Pietersen: Don't blame me...blame the ghosts!
Lawrence Booth: Utterly dismal from England since lunch - and, of course, the man who runs out Anderson is Jadeja. Well played India!
Jonathan Agnew: India deserve to win this match. Outplayed England in their own conditions. But last half hour has been lamentable
Ian Botham: Enough is enough we have to change things & move on simply not good enough (same as my school reports ) Captain cannot go on he's scrambled!
Harsha Bhogle: this ishant spell will become part of folklore..
Mohandas Menon: Ishant Sharma's 7/74 is the 5th best by any visiting bowler at Lord's after G McGrath 8/38, B Massie 8/53 & 8/84 and S Pegler 7/65#EngvInd
Brian Murgatroyd: I hope this is a new beginning for Ishant. Remember, Bob Willis took 7 years to get 100 Test wkts & he didn't do too badly thereafter.
