IND vs ENG 2nd Test: India’s 5 records at Lord’s which Virat Kohli & Co can break in 2nd Test against England: After being robbed of the winning chance in the first Test against England at Trent Bridge, Virat Kohli led Indian team would be fully charged up for the second contest at Lord’s. The unsatiated hunger of a win that was deferred by rain in the opening clash could see India roar ferociously so much so that Virat Kohli and co. might break India’s previous records at the Lord’s.
InsideSport looks at India’s 5 records at Lord’s which can potentially be broken by the Indian team currently in England.
India’s highest-ever innings total at Lord’s
Indian team in England under Virat Kohli’s leadership is one of the finest and the best contingent India have ever had. With top batsmen backed with the tail-enders ability with the bat, the visitors can tumble the previous best of 454- India’s highest ever innings total (1990) at the mecca of cricket.
Ishant Sharma’s record of most wickets in an innings by an Indian
The likes of top bowlers comprising the pace battery- Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, and Shardul Thakur, all of whom were seen in their top form can potentially breach the record of most wickets in an innings by an Indian. Ishant Sharma, who currently holds this record with 7 wickets (2014) can easily be surpassed by Jasprit Bumrah who claimed a fifer in Nottingham.
Ishant Sharma can break Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev’s record at Lord’s
IND vs ENG 2nd Test: Indian legends- Bishan Singh Bedi (1967-1979), Kapil Dev (1979-1990) hold the record of the most wickets in a cricket career at Lord’s which currently stands at 17 for each of these players. The record can potentially be breached by Ishan Sharma who has claimed 12 wickets in his career at the Lord’s turf. He is just 5 wickets short of breaking the unique record.
Vinoo Mankad’s record of most runs in an innings by an Indian
Vinoo Mankad’s record of most runs in an innings of 184 runs in 1952 can be potentially be broken by an Indian batsman. KL Rahul with his red-hot form stands tall in England conditions not just in the recently concluded first Test but also dominated the English conditions during India’s tour to England in 2018. He can fairly break Mankad’s record scripted long ago.
Dilip Vengsarkar’s record of most runs at Lord’s in a cricket career
DB Vengsarkar (1979-1990) holds the record of most runs scored by an Indian at Lord’s in a cricket career which stands at 508 runs.
