India's Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ajinyka Rahane's names have been placed on the Lord's Honours Boards following the second Investec Test match at Lord's.

England batsman Gary Ballance, who scored 110 in the first innings, also had his name put on the Board, for the second time in his career and second in successive Tests at the Home of Cricket. Ballance scored 103 against Sri Lanka in May.

For the three Indian players, it is the first time any of them have managed the feat of taking five-wickets or scoring 100 at Lord's, the milestones required to be placed on the Honours Boards.

Sharma, who produced a match winning performance of 7/74 to bowl England out in their second innings, now holds the record for best Test figures by an Indian player at Lord's.

Meanwhile, Kumar and Rahane's efforts saw them making the prestigious Honours Boards during their first Test match at Lord's, neither having played a Test at the Ground until last week.

24-year-old Kumar registered figures of 6/82 as he tormented England in their first innings, while Rahane - playing in just his seventh Test match - hit 103 in India's first innings total of 295.
