After losing to England despite a brilliant performance by the bowlers, India will look to bounce back in the second Test at Lord's. England's win at Edgbaston was their first Test win after losing to Pakistan in May, and they will be keen to keep the momentum going. James Anderson will also look to continue his rivalry with Virat Kohli. The England pacer requires just six wickets to reach 100 wickets at the 'Mecca of Cricket'. Let us take a look at this and other key numbers as the teams cross swords at Lord's

Stuart Broad requires 12 runs to reach 3,000 runs in Tests. If he does, Broad will become the fifth player after Shane Warne, Kapil Dev, Richard Hadlee and Shaun Pollock to score 3,000 runs and take 400 wickets in Tests.

Jos Buttler requires 54 runs to reach 1,000 runs in Tests.

Murali Vijay requires 67 runs to reach 4,000 runs in Tests. If he does, Vijay will become the 16th Indian player to reach the mark.
