Posted on Jul 21 2014 | IANS
London, July 21 : Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne Monday said India "bullied and bounced" out England to earn their first win at Lord's since 1986.
"Horrific hour for Eng. India bullied and bounced them out. Remember Eng won the toss on the greenest pitch ever and blew it, changes needed !!" tweeted Warne, referring to the bouncers bowled by Indian pacers, especially Ishant Sharma.
India won the second Test at the 'home of cricket' by 95 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series against England. The first test at Trent Bridge resulted in a draw.
The last time India won a Test at Lord's was when Kapil Dev's men defeated England in 1986.
The former leg spinner also praised pacer Ishant, who achieved career best figures of 7/74, for getting left-hander Moeen Ali out off a bouncer on the last ball before lunch.
"Great 1st session at Lords today and an awesome delivery from Sharma last ball before lunch. Also, I donated my plaster cast to the Lords museum - weird item, but fun!" added Warne.
