England won the thrilling first Test at Edgbaston

England is leading the series by 1-0 after winning the thrilling first Test by 31 runs in the last week at Edgbaston (Birmingham). While India has some precious memories in Lord’s, they haven’t good Test records yet.

However, in their last Test meeting at Lord’s in 2014, India won the match by 95 runs, thanks to Ishant Sharma’s brilliant bowling on the fifth day, who finished with the bowling figure of 7/74 in that innings.

Prior to the second Test, we will look at some important Test stats between England and India at Lord’s (London).
