Anderson captured the prize wicket of Sachin Tendulkar (12) after dismissing India's two other most accomplished batsman Rahul Dravid (36) and Vangipurappu Laxman (56) in the 2,000th test match and the 100th between the two countries.
Tendulkar, 38, who has scored a world record 14,738 test runs, has never made more than 37 at Lord's and is still one century short of becoming the first person to tally 100 international hundreds.
India were intent on saving the game in the absence of the injured Virender Sehwag, their one player who could have taken the game away from the opposition
