"Horrific hour for Eng. India bullied & bounced them out. Remember Eng won the toss on the greenest pitch ever & blew it, changes needed !!" tweeted Warne, referring to the bouncers bowled by Indian pacers, especially Ishant Sharma. (Also read: Cook struggles to accept tough Lord's defeat)

The former leg-spinner also praised pacer Ishant, who achieved career-best figures of 7/74, for getting left-hander Moeen Ali out off a bouncer on the last ball before lunch.

"Great 1st session at Lords today & an awesome delivery from Sharma last ball before lunch. Also, I donated my plaster cast to the Lords museum - weird item, but fun!" added Warne.
