Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes led England into a strong position at tea on the third day of the second Test at Lord's on Saturday as their unbeaten 99-run partnership earned the hosts a significant lead of 123 runs over India.

"It's still a bit of a blur - incredible feeling", said Woakes, who hit 18 boundaries and took 2-19 in India's first innings of 107.

The case has been no different during the ongoing Test between England and India. Bairstow was 62 not out and recalled all-rounder Woakes 55 not out.
