Fast bowler Ishant Sharma took seven wickets as India scored their first overseas win since 2011.

India's second victory at the home of cricket and first since 1986 continued England's miserable year after series defeats by Australia and Sri Lanka.

Resuming at 105 for four in pursuit of 319, England was bowled out for 223 with Joe Root top scoring with 66 and Moeen Ali made 39.

Sharma finished with career-best figures of seven for 74, including five wickets in 33 balls.

India go 1-0 up in the five-match series, with the next Test in Southampton next week.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni says every game is important, it feels good to win Test matches outside India, and being at Lord's, it's very special.
