Lord's Test: England rides high on Pietersen's double

Updated: September 10, 2011 18:09 IST

Kevin Pietersen's unbeaten 202, handed England control of the first Test being played between India and England at Lord's. Despite struggling to find his characteristic fluency, and two reprieves from the third umpire, Pietersen ground his way to a century off 216 balls - but his second ton was a different story, taking just 110 balls as he became the fourth fastest England batsman to pass 6,000 Test runs. Pietersen's spellbound performance left Indian openers Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund a tricky final half hour, but they survived six overs to reach 17-0.
