London: India finally won their first away Test in more than three years as they defeated England by 95 runs at Lord's on Monday.

Victory ended India's run of 15 successive Tests without an away win.

This success, in the second Test of a five-match campaign, also put India 1-0 up in the series after the opening draw at Trent Bridge.
