India Record Lord’s: Ishan Sharma holds a phenomenal record of most wickets in an innings by an Indian- 7 wickets. The hot form of Jasprit Bumrah might just see him overtaking the unique feat. As for Indian batsmen- the likes of Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara the numbers are unimpressive as they have gathered just 69 and 89 runs at the venue. India’s vice-captain in the whites- Ajinkya Rahane is slightly better off who has mustered 139 runs at Lord’s.
