Watch: Anderson`s fifer knocks India out for 107 in Lord`s Test
Before this series, KL Rahul's previous Test innings against England brought him 199 at Chennai in December 2016.
After a delay of more than two hours, the players returned for 12 balls, during which Kohli and Pujara groped around trying to find the ball as Anderson and Stuart Broad terrorised them under leaden skies.
Woakes, who reached his century off just 129 balls, is playing in place of Ben Stokes, who was forced to miss the second test as he stands trial in a court in Bristol charged with affray. With rain forecast for the next two days there is a strong chance Joe Root will declare overnight and get Virat Kohli's side into bat. All in all this was a chastening day for India. Together, with the pitch getting easier to bat on, the pair put on 99 for the sixth wicket before tea.
That brought in Chris Woakes (55 not out) and alongside Jonny Bairstow he ensured more pain for India. Bairstow (62 not out) in particular looking at ease the longer he was out in the middle.
On a rain-curtailed second day, it was a Cheteshwar Pujara run-out that cost the visitors dearly, as James Anderson's five-wicket haul helped the hosts bowl India out for 107.
The only sadness for England was that Bairstow did not reach three figures as well.
In the second test match between England vs India at Lord's cricket stadium in London, Virat Kohli and company will look forward to bounce back on track.
Bairstow and Jos Buttler went on the offensive immediately after the interval, quickly taking England past India's first innings total, but, while Bairstow remained to inflict further damage on India, Buttler departed for 24, becoming Shami's (3-74) third lbw victim after being beaten for pace as he advanced and moved across his stumps to try and work the ball to leg.
English openers, Alistair Cook and Keyton Jennings, looked in good touch but thanks to some good bowling by Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami both the openers were dismissed within a span of 5 balls. The 20-year-old played only 15 First-Class matches before this clash leaving many to wonder whether the young gun had what it takes to take on the world's best side. Root LBW to Shami for a less than fluent 28.

Omarosa: Trump acted 'like a dog off the leash'
Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'. Omarosa Manigault Newman went from the fan-favorite villain on The Apprentice to a top aide to Donald Trump in the White House.
