London: Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne Monday said India "bullied and bounced" out England to earn their first win at Lord`s since 1986.

"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.

India won the second Test at the `home of cricket` by 95 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series against England. The first test at Trent Bridge resulted in a draw.

The last time India won a Test at Lord`s was when Kapil Dev`s men defeated England in 1986.

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.
