London, July 17 (IBNS) Ajinkya Rahane 's brilliant century helped India post 290 for nine at the end of the first day of the second Test match against England at Lord's here on Thursday.

England won the toss and electing to field first on a green surface offering pace, movement and carry, the home side initially took full advantage of the conditions and reduced the visitors to 145 for seven after the first Test's hero Stuart Binny (9) departed.

James Anderson (4-55), Stuart broad (2-79) Liam Plunkett (1-51), Ben Stokes (1-40) and Moeen Ali (1-38) gave India initial jolts and made sure the visitors face troubles on the Lord's pitch. 

However, it was Rahane's brilliance that pulled out India from the situation and placed visitors in a much comfortable position at the end of the day.

Adding 90 runs with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (36) for the eight wicket partnership, India added 150 runs in the final session to post 290 for nine at the end of the day.

Rahane hit 15 boundaries and a six in his 154 ball knock. Anderson took a catch off his own bowling to end Rahane's memorable kncok.

Murali Vijay (24), Cheteshwar Pujara (28) and Virat Kohli  (25) failed to convert the start they got and returned early.

Shikhar Dhawan (7), skipper MS Dhoni (1) and Ravindra Jadeja (3) failed to deliver with their willows on Thurdsay.

England bowlers could not take full advantage of the pitch.

The first Test of the series had ended in a draw.

Brief scorecard:

India first innings 290 for nine (A Rahane 103; J Anderson 4-55, S Broad 2-79)
