  • Right, then! We've come to the end of the 2nd Test and England lead 2-0. If the first game was close, then this was the complete contrast. India are by no means a bad team, but it's about time they start showing it. Figuring out their best combination and who will have what role will be a must, followed closely by reading the conditions better and deciding on their tactics. England, well, the only thing have to do is not be complacent. They can win the series at Trent Bride where the third Test takes place, at 1100 local (1000 GMT). Do join in on all the action. Will be a good contest. Cheers!
  • CHRIS WOAKES HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that he is delighted, not only to win the award but to win the Test match inside 4 days and also score a century at Lord's. Agrees that the feelings have not yet sunk in though Bairstow tried his best to calm him down. Regaining his composure a bit, Chris says that he is happy that it aided the team's cause. On the batting display, Woakes says that the main aim was to see off the good balls and once set, start to score some runs. On his comeback to cricket, he says that there is nothing better than red-ball cricket but his stint with Worcestershire with the white ball gave him immense confidence. Praises Anderson and Broad for showing why they are called world-class.
  • Victorious England captain, Joe Root, accepts that it was a less stressful win. Praises his side for being on top from the very first ball. Admits that England had the conditions in their favour but they used them well. Praises Anderson with the ball, Bairstow with the bat and then Woakes' all-round show. Also says that Woakes has been a big part of the side and his comeback has lifted the team spirits, which is why his century was celebrated by the entire dressing room. On his team's bowling, Root stresses that even if the conditions were overcast, the balls needed to be put in the right areas. And when they have guys like Anderson and Broad, the youngsters will keep learning. On Ollie Pope, he praises the youngster for transferring pressure back on to India when they were getting on top and feels he looks promising for the future. For the third Test, Joe stresses that there are areas to improve and that is the exciting part since they are already winning. Feels for the guys who will not be a part of the news headlines tomorrow and stresses that the team did well as a whole.
  • Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says that he is not bery proud of the way his team has played because this is the first time in the last 5 Test matches that India have been outplayed. Praises England for the way they played and credits them the win. Does not want to complain about the conditions not being favourable and humbly accepts that everytime conditions cannot come to your rescue. Again, praises England for bowling well in conduvive conditions. Admits that in hindsight, he would have played an extra seamer. Wants to forget this match and perform better in the third Test as from 0-2 down, there is nowhere to go but up. On his own availability, Virat is confident that he will be fit and fine come the third Test.
  • Stuart Broad is caught on the sidelines for a little chat. He says it was a powerful performance from the team. Mentions that after the emotional scenes at Edgbaston, it was good to come here and win. Is happy they could take full advantage of the overcast conditions on offer and take the game by the scruff of its neck. States it was difficult to bat and cites Cheteshwar Pujara's gritty knock as an example of that and says that he really made them work for his wicket. Feels that the rain break was a bit disappointing for him as he was in good rhythm before that. He laughs it off as he let's everyone know how let down he feels that he messed up his hat-trick ball, as the conditions were perfect for him. Reckons the team is feeling pretty fresh and everyone is ready for Trent Bridge. Praises Chris Woakes for his outstanding (maiden) hundred and thinks that getting it at Lord's makes it all the more special.
  • Post that, with the Indian batting line-up as frail as it is and Virat Kohli playing with an injury, the task was always going to be difficult. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane showed first signs of some kind of Indian resistance, but that was about it. When Stuart Broad broke that stand, the writing was on the wall. Everyone before and after them showed no stomach to fight and succumbed to the pressure applied by the English bowlers. Anderson bagged four, so did Broad and Woakes collected two for himself. Plenty for the home side to celebrate, even more for the Indians to work out.
  • The home side faced their own problems too when they took the bat, losing the top order early, but once more it was the lower middle order which bailed them out. Heroes emerged in the form of Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes who showed that the only way forward is by attacking, and the duo stitched 189 runs in rather quick time. Bairstow missed out on a ton, while Woakes got to the triple-figure mark. That partnership more or less finished things, but some quick runs on the morning of Day 4 from Woakes and Sam Curran added the finishing touches.
  • A humiliating defeat for the visitors as they lose by a big, big margin. The match was effectively played for just 2 and a half days, but that was enough for England to wipe India off. The first day was washed out, but come the second, the Englishmen won the toss and used the overcast conditions to their advantage. They bowled India out for a mere 107, in just under one session, with James Anderson leading the charge with a 5-fer.
  • The Englishmen walk off the field to a rising ovation from the Lord's faithful. They wave to acknowledge their support, Chris Woakes' teammates pat him on the back and applaud his efforts in this game along with the crowd. A valiant effort, a well-deserved victory, at the Home Of Cricket. Couldn't have asked for anything better.
  • 46.6OUT! And there's the final nail in the coffin. ENGLAND WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 159 RUNS! A comprehensive victory for them, a deal which is sealed, rightly, by Chris Woakes. Curls it back in on middle and leg, Ishant Sharma moves inside the line and flicks it aerially down the leg side. A leg slip is in place and Ollie Pope there does well to dive to his right and take the catch.
  • It's getting quite dark. Not sure for how long the umpire would let play continue. Maybe Root should consider bringing Adil Rashid on, if a pacer wouldn't be considered safe as such?
  • 46.5Back of a length outside off, it's run down to third slip off the outer half.
  • 46.4The batsman works it down the leg side. One run added to the total.
  • 46.3Ashwin with a desperate dive! This is the second Test after all, plenty remaining. Maybe he should consider avoiding these risks, given there's no real need for it. Cut through point and Ashwin calls for the second. Runs back in and there is a throw at Bairstow's end. Ravichandran dives and just about gets in.
  • Ashwin has copped another blow and it's on his bowling hand again. Not exactly good for him and India. The physio is called out and seeing this momentary halt in play, the umpires have decided to call for Drinks.
  • 46.2Nasty! Uneven bounce on this surface again. This just takes off and takes Ashwin by surprise. He tries to defend but is struck on the fingers again. Same place as before. The ball lobs behind and falls just short of third slip, who dives forward to take but can't get under it.
  • 46.1Full delivery shaping back in, on the stumps, Ashwin flicks this in front of square leg but doesn't take the run.
  • 45.6Full ball attacking the stumps, A straight blade is brought down in defense. 127/9
  • 45.5Holds its line on this occasion as it's on a length outside off, Ishant hangs his bat inside the line and gets beaten.
  • 45.4A couple of runs for Ishant Sharma. Full and swinging back in, it's flicked through the vacant square leg region.
  • 45.3Closer to off stump, a length ball, Ishant this time stays back to dab it past the slip cordon maybe but gets beaten.
  • 45.2Good length ball outside off, Ishant covers the line and lets it be.
  • Ishant Sharma is the last batsman in for India.
  • 45.1OUT! England inch closer to victory. Wouldn't have mattered in the grand scheme of things, but maybe India could have delayed the inevitable if Shami had taken the review. Seemed like the impact would be outside off. Anyway, Jimmy bowls it full and angles it in around off, Shami looks to clear London with a big swing, probably towards long on. He misses and is caught on the back pad. Loud appeal and umpire Erasmus raises his finger.
  • 44.6FOUR! Played that with complete control. Short of a length outside off, moving away, Ashwin opens the face of the bat and runs it past the slip cordon for a boundary. 125/8
  • 44.5Length delivery rising off the surface and cutting away, Ashwin rises on his toes and keeps it out.
  • 44.4Hangs back inside his crease and safely guards it out.
  • 44.3Ahead of a length, just outside off, Ashwin leans ahead a bit and pushes it gently towards covers.
  • 44.2The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 44.1Yorker fired in on middle and leg, Ashwin manages to dig this out towards mid on.
  • 43.6Safe! A successful review for India. Surprising. Anderson bangs it in short and angles it down, Shami takes the pull on but the bounce is a little too big on him. Bairstow collects and England appeal. The umpire raises his finger but Shami takes the review. It goes upstairs and replays show that there was no bat, or no glove involved. So he's safe, for the moment at least. 121/8
  • Shami has taken the DRS. He's been given out for a caught behind but he's decided to challenge the decision.
  • 43.5Full in length outside off, driven to mid off.
  • Mohammed Shami will be the new batsman in.
  • 43.4OUT! Bowled 'em! The inswinger got him in the first innings too, where he was caught leg before, and now, his stumps are shattered. Full and coming back in, around off, Kuldeep goes for the cover drive but leaves quite a bit of gap between bat and pad. It takes the inside edge and crashes into the furniture behind. England just 2 wickets away from a victory now.
  • 43.3Fullish in length, outside off and moving away. Kuldeep looks to tamely push it to covers and misses.
  • 43.2Punches this to point with a slightly opened face and changes ends.
  • 43.1FOUR! Anderson errs in line and sprays this on the hips, Ashwin just tickles it fine past the keeper and the outcome after that is an obvious one.
  • 42.6Too wide outside off, Kuldeep doesn't bother himself with that. 116/7
  • 42.5The ball is too wide on the off side for the batsman to make any contact.
  • 42.4Arrows it full, on off stump this time, kept out on the front foot.
  • 42.3Moving away again, around off on a bit of a fuller length, tapped along the turf towards fourth slip.
  • 42.2Almost. Woakes angles this across the left-hander, on a length around off. Kuldeep is forward to defend but gets beaten past the outside edge.
  • Kuldeep Yadav is the next batsman in. Four slips in place for him.
  • 42.1OUT! And Woakes strikes immediately on his return to the attack. Comes charging in and bowls an inswinger on middle. Keeps coming in and raps Hardik Pandya on the front pad as he misses his defense. Big shout, the umpire remains unmoved but the English camp doesn't agree with that. No time is wasted and the DRS is taken. The TV umpire is called into action and replays show that all three reds are ticked. No height, no missing leg... nothing. Pandya is gone and India are staring down the barrel of an embarrasing victory.
  • Review taken by England. It's for an lbw decision against Hardik Pandya. Going down leg? Might be height too. Let's see...
  • Chris Woakes also into the attack again.
  • 41.6Speared full, outside off, draws Ashwin forward for the drive and moves away late. There is a noise as the ball goes past the bat but the sound is off the bat hitting the ground and not the ball. 116/6
  • 41.5Just around off, pushed off the front foot.
  • 41.4The bat slightly rotates in his hands but Pandya does well to get this away. Takes a big stride forward and drives it just wide of mid on off the inner half. Collects a single for doing so.
  • 41.3Full and straight from Jimmy, Pandya brings down a straight blade in response and blocks it out.
  • 41.2Moves inside the line with a little walk across his sticks and works it behind square leg. One run collected.
  • 41.1Anderson bangs it in short but it doesn't have much pace on it. Ashwin stays behind the line and defends it under his nose.
  • 40.6On the fuller side of the length, still coming in, pushed through the covers with a slightly opened face. A single to end the over. 114/6
  • 40.5Quite comfortably done. Hardik taps this away towards covers and crosses over.
  • 40.4Throws this outside off, at 131 clicks, a play and a miss from the batsman.
  • 40.3FOUR! Not a bad ball at all but that's superbly played. The 50-run stand is up as well. First one for India and it's the highest one for them in this match. Swinging in on off, Hardik flicks this away through the big gap in the mid-wicket region. Adil Rashid tries chasing it down from wide mid on, but loses the race.
  • 40.2Rising off the deck, but it's well, well outside off. Pandya comes forward and shoulders his arms to it.
  • 40.1The inswinger from Broad. Coming in on a length, punched from the back foot through the covers for a run.
  • 39.6Beaten! Anderson with some classic outswing as he serves it around off, Hardik comes half forward to defend but the ball goes past the outside edge. 107/6
  • 39.5Fullish in length and just outside off, straightening up a shade, kept out off the front foot from the outer half.
  • 39.4Outside the line of off stump, Hardik shoulders arms to let that one through.
  • 39.3Walks a step across, moves inside the line to this length ball and nudges it down to fine leg for one.
  • 39.2FOUR! Short and wide, Ashwin has the freedom to throw his arms at that and he does so. Off the outer half and it's through the now vacant gully position for a boundary.
  • 39.1Way wide outside off, left alone for the keeper to collect.
  • James Anderson returns to the attack.
  • 38.6Short ball banged in around off, Hardik rises and taps it down right beside him. Nicely done. 102/6
  • 38.5Just ahead of a length, quite close to off, blocked.
  • 38.4FOUR! Now THAT is the shot of the match. Just beautiful. And this is how Hardik Pandya needs to play. Positive. No point just hanging around there. Fuller length ball on off, Pandya comes on the front foot and drives this on the up straight back down. Mid on doesn't even bother to chase it down as such. The 100 comes up.
  • 38.3Too far outside off, some inward movement but it's not nearly enough to trouble the batsman. Another leave.
  • 38.2On the fifth stump line, quite harmless, Hardik knows this and shoulders arms to it.
  • 38.1Landed on a length, outside off, punched square through point and a couple of runs are had.
  • 37.6Ravi Ashwin has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 96/6
  • 37.5Outside off, on a good length, no shot offered.
  • 37.4FOUR! Controlled shot. Fuller outside off, Ashwin drives this behind square on the off side. Beats Anderson at gully and finds the fence.
  • 37.3FOUR LEG BYES! Angling in on leg, moving further down, Ashwin gets it fine down the leg side, albeit off the thigh pad. The ball goes past Bairstow all the way to the fine leg boundary.
  • 37.2Stays inside the crease and keeps it out.
  • 37.1Good effort from skipper Joe. Full outside off, Ashwin drives to the left of mid off. But Root there moves swiftly to make a tumbling stop.
  • 36.6A loosener from Broad. He fires it full and wide outside off, tempting Pandya to go for it. He takes the bait as well and goes for the big drive, but fails to connect. 88/6
  • CRICKET UPDATE - Ok... Indian fans... some good news as far as Asian cricket is concerned. Sri Lanka have registered their second successive win over South Africa in the 5th ODI, to end the series 2-3. Akila Dananjaya's 6-fer was the talk of the bowling while earlier, it was captain Angelo Mathews' unbeaten 97 which set the tone for the win.
  • 36.5Right in the box! Hardik Pandya in the line of fire here. Second blow he's copped since he's come on. Back of a length delivery coming in heavily, catches Pandya in the mid-section as he can't do anything about it. He's down in some pain, not much, as he's seen with a wry smile on his face.
  • 36.4Pandya positions himself perfectly behind the line and blocks.
  • 36.3Edgy FOUR! Broad angles it in full on middle and off, it shapes away late as Pandya tries flicking it away. Off the leading edge and past the gully fielder for a boundary.
  • 36.2Pushed to the cover region by the batsman.
  • 36.1Hurled on a length, outside off, Hardik has nothing to do with it.
  • 35.6Pushes this on the off side from inside the crease. 84/6
  • 35.5A bit of aggression from Sam Curran. Ashwin plays this back to the bowler, who collects the ball and throws it back, hitting the stumps at the striker's end.
  • 35.4Similar ball, same shot offered by Ravi Ash. Driven to mid off for nothing.
  • 35.3Full length delivery swinging in, from around off, driven to mid off.
  • 35.2Stays right behind the line and keeps it out safely.
  • 35.1Seaming down the leg side, Ashwin looks to flick but just misses. Bairstow moves to his left and collects.
  • 34.6FOUR! As good a shot as you'll see from anybody. Too full on middle stump, Pandya drives it sweetly through mid on. No stopping that, the ball went to the fence in a jiffy. 84/6
  • 34.5Short of a good length outside off, left alone.
  • 34.4Plays this very late. Ashwin waits for the length ball outside off and cuts it past gully. Two fielders chase after it and eventually manage to save a run. Three taken.
  • 34.3The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 34.2FOUR! Superb. Full and in line of the stumps, Ashwin just presents the full face of the bat and drives this through mid on for a boundary.
  • 34.1Inside edge? Height? It's the former which has saved Ashwin there. Was a dead duck otherwise. Broad swings it back in from around off, massively and Ashwin is caught on the pads off the inside edge. The bowler, seeing this, instantly pulls out of the appeal at that sight.
  • 33.6FOUR! All about the timing on that. Full on the pads, Pandya drives it through mid-wicket and sends the ball to the fence for a boundary. 73/6
  • The physio is back out again. This time it's Ashwin who needs some attention.
  • 33.5Good length ball rising with some extra bounce. Ashwin goes to push but it goes off his gloves towards mid off. He takes off, the fielder gets to the ball and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end but by then the batsman is well in. Though, Ashwin has taken his gloves off and looks in pain too.
  • 33.4Going away from outside off, on a back of a length, Ashwin stays back, opens the face and steers it to backward point.
  • 33.3Uses the angle into him and works it past the mid-wicket fielder for a single.
  • 33.2Good effort from Pope. Ashwin drives this overpitched delivery outside off towards the covers. Ollie there dives low to his right and parries it towards his mate close by. Nicely done. Just a single taken by the batsmen.
  • 33.1Fires a low full toss outside off, Ashwin drives it to the man at mid off.
  • Sam Curran to continue from the other end.
  • 32.6Cutting back in, from a good length just around off, blocked with the full face of the bat under his nose. 66/6
  • Pandya has called for some medical attention for the blow he received on his fingers.
  • 32.5Ouch! That has got to sting. For sure. Broad with a length delivery which kicks off the deck. Shapes back in and catches Hardik Pandya on the fingers on his right hand as he tries to block it out. He leaves his bat and takes his gloves off. Never good, those.
  • 32.4Some extra bounce as Broad lands it on a length. It's well outside off, enough anyway, for Pandya to not play at it. He just hangs his bat inside the line and lets it pass.
  • 32.3Brings it in closer this time, makes the batsman play. Pandya plants his front foot forward and blocks it down in front of covers.
  • 32.2Hurled further outside off, it's going away, so Hardik doesn't do anything about it.
  • 32.1Good length delivery in the off stump channel, Pandya hangs his bat inside the line and gets beaten.
  • Welcome back for the final session of the day and quite possibly, the match. Stuart Broad will continue, as Hardik Pandya takes strike. Three slips in place along with two short legs. Interesting...
  • ... Day 4, Session 3 ...
  • Got to feel for Virat Kohli. He was struggling with his back and tried to fight the battle out in the middle, as long as the heavens do not give in. What will hurt him even more is that his wicket has opened the floodgates. Can his side battle it out further in the final session? Try and take this to Day 5? Who knows, if the forecast turns bad and there is rain the whole day... stay tuned for updates...
  • India played decently today, trying to see off Anderson and Woakes and doing so nearly well. Ajinkya Rahane fought with some grit along with Cheteshwar Pujara but once Broad started to get on a roll, he was menacing. He hit the right lengths, got into a longggg spell and as a result - wreaked havoc on India. There was nothing much for the visitors to look forward to but they were trying to fight hard.
  • SESSION HIGHLIGHTS - 49/4 in 23 overs. Or shall we put it this way - 8-4-9-4 to Stuart Broad. His second spell has literally blown India away, as if they were anyways in a better position. All eyes were on Jimmy Anderson but this is what is called - hunting in pairs. If Jimmy doesn't get you, Stuey will.
  • 1600 local update - EARLY TEA HAS BEEN TAKEN. Sensible decision from the umpires, considering that the drizzle could be in for a bit longer. Another session going England's way then.
  • 1550 local - Well, it has been drizzling for quite a while but umpire Marais Erasmus feels that it has got heavier. Off go the players. The commentators inform us that the rain is coming from the south-west, which is clearing up quickly. So hopefully, or not hopefully, whichever side you are supporting, the game resumes quickly...
  • 31.6The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 66/6
  • 31.5Another LBW appeal, but umpire Erasmus is not interested and England are not interested either. On a length, around middle, going away, Ashwin looks to defend but misses and is hit high on the thigh pads. Curran seemed to be wanting the review but Root had a chat with the senior men in the slip cordon and must have been informed that it is high. No review taken.
  • 31.4The batsman has attempted to put bat on ball - but fails.
  • 31.3On middle and off, angling away, pushed towards cover.
  • 31.2Full on middle, swinging away, defended back to the bowler.
  • 31.1On middle and leg, helped through square leg for a single.
  • 30.6A length ball, around off, swinging in massively, Ashwin looks to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Broad appeals again but umpire Dar is more interested in where the ball is going. It is not taken by Ollie Pope as he cannot get there. Seemed to be an inside edge. But what an over from Broad - 2 0 W W 4B 0. 65/6
  • 30.5FOUR BYES! Overtrying, was Broad. Bowled it way outside leg, trying to get it full and the ball kept swinging further down the leg side. Bairstow dived to his left but was unable to get anywhere near it.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin walks in at number 8, replacing Karthik. Can he see off the hat-trick ball?
  • 30.4OUT! UMPIRE'S CALL! Well, who is on a roll? Not just Stuart Broad, but Aleem Dar as well. Third decision of his has been retained in a row, on successive balls. A golden duck for Karthik. Full and outside off, swinging in a long way, Dinesh gets a bit of a stride forward and looks to defend but is beaten by the massive inswing. He is hit on the pads and Dar raises his finger in a flash once more. Karthik has a bit of a chat with Pandya and then signals for the 'T'. Ummm... Hawk Eye shows the impact to be umpire's call, just around that off stump and then going on to hit the timber. India sliding further...
  • THIRD REVIEW IN THREE BALLS! This is for an LBW. Karthik has been adjudged out and he has taken the review. Where is the impact?
  • Dinesh Karthik comes in now at number 7, replacing his captain.
  • 30.3OUT! There is deviation this time, off the glove and Kohli has to depart! Broad is smiling big time. A short ball again, around middle, Kohli looks to tuck but the ball goes off his thigh pads towards the deepish short leg fielder. Ollie Pope dives forward and claims the catch and umpire Aleem Dar immediately raises his finger. Kohli takes the review immediately with a big smile across his face. But boy, Snickometer detects a deviation when the ball goes off the glove. The decision stays as it is again and Kohli has to walk back. Perhaps, not bad from India's point of view. He was struggling big time with his back and hamstring and needed rest. But India well...
  • Another review! This time by Kohli! He has been given out caught at deepish short leg by Aleem Dar. The Indian captain instantaneously takes the review and has a big smile on his face. Perhaps then he has not nicked it...
  • 30.2NOT OUT! Superb decision from Aleem Dar! Classic umpiring. A short ball, down the leg side, Kohli looked to tuck it fine but could not connect entirely. The ball flew off something behind and Jonny Bairstow flew to his left to take it one-handed. He immediately went up in an appeal but umpire Dar was not interested. Root had a long chat with his keeper and then signalled for the review. Snickometer did not show any deviation after the ball went past the glove, but when it brushed the shirt. The decision stays as it is and England lose a review.
  • Is that caught behind? Bairstow has taken a blinder behind and claims that he has Kohli caught. However, umpire Aleem Dar has shaken his head and captain Root has gone for the review...
  • 30.1On a length outside off, extra bounce, Kohli rides it nicely and punches it behind point. Joe Root goes after it from gully, gets to the ball with a slide but misfields and allows the second run. Oh dear... as the Indian skipper rushes back for the second, he hobbles slightly...
  • 29.6Fullish ball on leg stump, turned in front of square leg for a single. 59/4
  • 29.5FOUR! All class written over that shot! Fullish ball around off, Kohli leans ahead confidently and nails the drive through covers. Root hares after it from mid off and slides near the fence but the ball wins the race. Joe gets a bit of stick as well as the ball defects onto his head off the ropes. Seems to be fine though.
  • 29.4Fractionally overpitched outside off, driven firmly but straight to the man at cover-point.
  • 29.3Full ball in line of the stumps, clipped away to short mid-wicket.
  • 29.2Fullish ball outside off, Kohli tries to drive it through the line but squirts it off the outer half past backward point. Anderson and Pope chase it down. The pacer reaches it first and slides to parry the ball to his mate. Good teamwork as they save a couple.
  • 29.1Length ball on leg stump, swinging down a touch. Kohli tries to flick it away but is hit on the thigh pad. No appeal from the Englishmen as the height and the swing on it were both in question.
  • 28.6Back of a length ball well outside off, shaping in. Pandya keeps his bat inside the line and makes a good leave. 52/4
  • 28.5Jittery! In the corridor of uncertainty, Pandya is not sure which way the ball is moving. It comes in as Pandya gets an inside edge onto his pads.
  • 28.4Full length ball, swinging in, Hardik leans ahead to dead-bat it.
  • 28.3The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 28.2Back of a length outside off, played with soft hands towards point for a single.
  • 28.1A shout for an LBW falls on deaf ears! Good length ball around off, nipping in. Kohli tries to block it by coming forward but misses to get hit above the knee roll on the back leg. Broad appeals for it along with the slip cordon but the umpire stays unmoved. Root comes ahead towards Broad and thinks about the review but decides against it. Wise call as the Hawk Eye shows that it would have gone over the stumps.
  • 27.6Another jaffa! Fuller length ball on off, seams away after pitching as Pandya tries to defend it but gets beaten. Top bowling from the Englishmen. 51/4
  • 27.5Full length ball attacking the stumps, eased off the front foot to mid on.
  • The umbrellas are up in the crowd meaning that the drizzle is on. However it is not that much to force the umpires and players off.
  • 27.4Stays back to the length ball and defends it with authority.
  • 27.3Brilliantly bowled! Outside off, shaping in late. Pandya pokes at it and misses.
  • 27.2Fullish ball around off, kept out watchfully.
  • 27.1Defended off the back foot by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • The keeper is standing up to the stumps to Curran. The reason is to make Kohli go inside his crease. He likes to stand out to counter the swing.
  • 26.6Fullish ball, angling in, Pandya gets an inside edge onto his pads. A wicket maiden for Broad. 50/4
  • Hardik Pandya comes out to bat.
  • 26.5OUT! Bowled 'em! What a cracker from Stuart Broad to get rid of the solid Cheteshwar Pujara. He literally had no clue about it. Broad goes wide of the crease and bowls a full length ball around off. It swings in like a banana and Pujara is caught off guard. Tries to bring his bat down to defend the ball but is beaten by the massive movement and by the pace as well. It brushes his pads and crashes into the stumps. Cheteshwar walks back with a blank expression. A hard-fought knock from him has been nipped in the bud. India are still behind by 239 and only have 6 wickets in hand.
  • 26.4Pujara shuffles a touch and flicks the fullish ball towards mid-wicket.
  • 26.3Broad goes wider of the crease and angles it in sharply. Pujara is caught in the crease and gets an inside edge onto his pads.
  • 26.2A sharp surprise short ball from Broad, Che ducks under it in a jiffy.
  • 26.1Coming in from a full length, defended solidly off the front foot.
  • 25.6Bye! It is tough keeping on a surface where so much is happening. Outside off, swings in late as Pujara lets it go. Bairstow fails to stop it cleanly and a single is taken. 50/3
  • 25.5A brilliant save from Joe Root! On a driveable length outside off, Kohli creams it towards wide mid off. His opposite number dives full length to his left and stops it with a single hand. Gets up and has a shy at the non-striker's end but misses. That allows an overthrow to be taken. Saved a boundary there though.
  • 25.4On the fourth stump channel, angling away. Kohli thinks of running it down but at the last moment keeps his bat inside the line.
  • 25.3Comes forward to the fullish ball and answers it with a straight bat.
  • 25.2Similar delivery and Kohli doesn't fiddle with it.
  • 25.1Well outside off, left alone.
  • 24.6The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. A top, top over from Broad. A maiden. 48/3
  • 24.5An appeal for a caught behind? Not given. Good length ball, cutting in, goes past Pujara's defense and seems to have brushed the thigh pad on its way to the keeper. Bairstow asks the question but is denied. The replay shows no bat there.
  • 24.4That one took off! Back of a length, rising on Pujara with extra bounce. He rises to defend it but is hit on the glove.
  • 24.3Was there an edge? Broad certainly feels so as he has his hands on his head. Fuller length ball in the probing corridor and coming in sharply. Pujara leans ahead to block it but seems to have got an inside edge onto his pads. The ball lobs towards the fourth slip fielder who runs in but it falls well short of him. The replay confirms there was wood involved.
  • 24.2Back of a length ball, defended solidly off the back foot.
  • 24.1Full ball outside off, Pujara tries to squeeze it out but gets it off the outer half towards the slip cordon.
  • 23.6Full length ball attacking the stumps, Virat comes ahead to dead-bats it. 48/3
  • 23.5The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot. They pick up a single.
  • 23.4A jaffa! Pitches on a length around off and then seams away substantially. Pujara hangs his bat out to see the ball whiz past it.
  • 23.3Stayed low! On a length outside off, CP tries to play at it at the last moment and is again foxed.
  • 23.2Wide outside off, left alone.
  • 23.1Outside off, Pujara pushes at it but misses.
  • 22.6That was unplayable! Fullish ball outside off, angling in and then moving away. Kohli tries to cover the line but is beaten all ends up. Broad has a wry smile on his face. 47/3
  • 22.5Well-directed short ball around off, Kohli drops his wrists, sways away and makes a good leave.
  • 22.4The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 22.3FOUR! That will put all his tentativeness into the bin! Kohli at his absolute best. Good length ball outside off, Kohli gets to the pitch of the ball and drives it beautifully through covers to pick up his first boundary. That will make him feel good.
  • 22.2Hangs back to the good length ball and defends it solidly. He again has a look of anguish on his face. The on-air commentators say that this is only the second Test of the series and it is a not good sign for the Indian skipper. Agreed that he has come out for the cause of his side but he is also the most vital member of the team. If he gets injured going ahead in the series, it will be tough work for India.
  • 22.1On a length outside off, shaping in. Kohli comes forward gingerly and tries to block it but gets hit on the forearm. Not the Kohli we are used to watching.
  • 21.6Harmless ball outside off, Pujara leaves it alone. 43/3
  • 21.5FOUR! Delightful! Fullish ball around off, a bit of nibble in the air. Pujara comes ahead and with a straight bat strokes it down the ground. A boundary results. After 36 deliveries. Will relieve some pressure.
  • 21.4Leans ahead to the inswinging ball and keeps it out watchfully.
  • 21.3Tentative! Back of a length ball on off, swinging in. Kohli tries to block it but gets an inside edge which rolls towards mid-wicket. As Virat goes for the run, we can see him struggling. There are only very few occasions when is not hundred percent. Needs to be careful now.
  • 21.2The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 21.1Full ball attacking the stumps, Kohli comes forward and pushes it towards mid on.
  • Sam Curran comes for a bowl.
  • 20.6Full ball angling in, played away with soft hands towards square leg. 38/3
  • 20.5In the corridor of uncertainty, CP lets it through.
  • 20.4A peach! Angling in initially on a fuller length and then straightening. Pujara has no choice but to play at it and gets beaten.
  • 20.3This one is wide outside off, Pujara is circumspect in his approach as he allows it through.
  • Ollie Pope comes under the lid at short leg position. He is standing a bit behind, suggesting that he is more for the flick.
  • 20.2Pitched up ball around off, Pujara leans ahead to keep it out.
  • 20.1The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 19.6Fuller length ball, angling in, Kohli puts his head down and defends it calmly. The replay shows that he had a bit of a grimace on his face after he played that. Indicating that he has a hamstring issue. He is fighting for the cause of his side. 38/3
  • 19.5In the channel outside off, Virat leaves it alone.
  • 19.4Bye! Outside off, swinging away as Pujara lets it go. Bairstow fails to stop it cleanly and the batsmen steal a run.
  • 19.3Full ball on middle, flicked around the corner for a brace.
  • 19.2Full length ball around off, Cheteshwar comes forward to block it.
  • 19.1Well outside off, left alone.
  • The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli walks out to the middle. He needs to play a standout knock if India are to save this Test match.
  • 18.6OUT! Broad strikes! After playing pretty well, Rahane has gifted his wicket away. This was not needed at all, he will be kicking himself. Full length ball well outside off, swinging away. Rahane plays away from the body and pushes at it. Ends up getting a thick outside edge towards third slip. Jennings remains cool and takes a good catch to his left. Buttler at second slip had got low to his right in case Keaton dropped it. 35/3
  • 18.5A jaffa! Back of a length around off and the ball straightens after coming in. Goes past the hanging bat of Rahane.
  • 18.4We have seen these a few times. Broad bowls this one with a scrambled seam and gets it to go away like a leg cutter. Rahane feels for it but doesn't have any clue.
  • 18.3On a length on the fifth stump channel, seaming away. Ajinkya doesn't fiddle with it.
  • 18.2Broad loses his radar and slips this one down the leg side, Rahane misses out on his flick shot.
  • It has gone a bit darker and the jacket is out for Aleem Dar. Perhaps, the weather has gone colder.
  • 18.1The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 17.6Back of a length in line of the stumps, CP hangs back and stonewalls it. 35/2
  • 17.5Ooh, Rahane was a bit late on that! Swinging in substantially on a fullish length from around off, Ajinkya comes ahead tentatively and gets it off the inner half through square leg. If he missed that, he was a candidate for LBW. A run results.
  • 17.4Fullish ball swinging in, played with soft hands towards wide mid on for a run.
  • 17.3Woakes is bowling intelligently! After full deliveries, he bangs in a short one outside off, Che keeps his bat inside the line to leave it.
  • 17.2Good running! Ajinkya goes deep in the crease and dabs it towards cover-point for a brisk run.
  • 17.1Full length ball, straying on the pads. Rahane tucks it with a closed bat face towards mid-wicket.
  • 16.6Well played! This one swings in the air around off, Pujara with a steady head and a high elbow blocks it down the track. Looked solid as a rock there. 32/2
  • 16.5Full length ball, kept out watchfully.
  • 16.4The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 16.3We saw inside edges flying past the stumps on numerous occasions when England were batting and there have been a few instances in the Indian innings as well. Broad lands this one in the corridor of uncertainty, Rahane unsure whether it will come in or move away pushes at it tentatively. Gets a thick inside edge that evades the stumps and rolls towards fine leg. A run taken.
  • 16.2Pujara allows the fuller length ball to come to him and taps it with an angled bat towards point for an easy run.
  • 16.1Poor from Pujara! He has looked in good shape throughout but has to keep his patience going. Does the mistake of trying to squeeze a very full ball outside off and misses.
  • Stuart Broad is back for a bowl, replacing James Anderson. Can he pick up a few wickets just as his opening partner did?
  • 15.6Harmless delivery well outside off, Rahane doesn't fiddle with it. 30/2
  • 15.5Nervy moment for Ajinkya! Good length ball around off, coming in with the natural angle initially but then deviates at the last moment to go past the hanging bat of the batsman. It's a stern test of patience.
  • 15.4FOUR! Easy pickings! That is what these two need to do. See out the good deliveries and have the presence of mind to put away the bad ones. This one starts swinging down from middle and leg, Rahane helps it on its way to the fine leg fence.
  • 15.3This one stayed low! Back of a length outside off, doesn't take off as expected. Rahane hops to adjust for it but gets a bottom edge that rolls towards the keeper. Nasser Hussain on air mentions that yesterday as well, a few deliveries from Pandya from the Nursery End kept low.
  • 15.2On a length and shaping in, turned around the corner for a single.
  • 15.1Fractionally overpitched around off, tapped with soft hands to the off side for a single.
  • 14.6Seaming away from a length on the fifth stump channel, no need to go at those and Che doesn't go. 24/2
  • 14.5Quite a bit of nibble in the air on a fullish length around off, Pujara puts his head down and defends it.
  • 14.4Well played eventually! However, he was unsure initially. Back of a length, cutting in from outside off. Pujara waits for it and at the very last moment glides it in a controlled manner towards second slip.
  • 14.3On a length around off, seaming in off the deck. Pujara gets behind it and is solid as a rock.
  • 14.2In the probing channel outside off, Cheteshwar drops his wrists to allow it through.
  • 14.1Fullish delivery, swinging in from around off. Che strides ahead and blocks it calmly.
  • 13.6On a good length around off, defended with a straight bat. 24/2
  • 13.5Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 13.4Did that carry? Maybe not. Back of a length ball on middle and off, straightens a touch after landing. Rahane tries to get behind it but gets an outside edge as the ball flies towards first slip. Cook there gets low but the ball seems to have fallen just short of him. The replay confirms that. Could the keeper or the second slip fielder have gone for it? Maybe yes, but got to give the benefit to them as it was pretty far away from them.
  • 13.3Back of a length ball around off, defended solidly off the back foot.
  • 13.2Beautiful comeback from Woakes! He drags his length back a wee bit but it is still full. Rahane makes the mistake of playing it with a vertical bat this time and the ball swings past his outside edge. Need to play at those with a horizontal bat, Rahane, in swinging conditions.
  • 13.1FOUR! Crisp! A half volley outside off and shaping away. Rahane comes forward and plays it with a horizontal bat driving it through covers to find the fence. A good point made by Nasser Hussain on air. He mentions that this morning, Kumar Sangakkara said that you need to play these kind of deliveries with a horizontal bat.
  • 12.6This one is well outside off, Cheteshwar ignores it. 20/2
  • 12.5Ouch! That will sting. Cuts in from a back of a length to open Pujara up. Goes past his defense and hits him in the stomach region. It is a battle out there for the batsmen.
  • 12.4Allows the full ball on middle to come to him and taps it with soft hands towards short mid-wicket.
  • 12.3Nicely bowled! Continues to hit the deck hard as he gets good assistance from the pitch. The ball seams away too. Pujara looks to play at it initially but the shorter length allows him to bail out at the last moment.
  • 12.2Anderson again hits the deck hard around off. It also takes off as CP rises on his toes and blocks it down the track.
  • 12.1Pitches on a back of a length outside off and keeps coming in. Pujara keeps his bat inside the line and lets it go.
  • 11.6Stump-to-stump line, kept out watchfully. 20/2
  • 11.5Good use of the crease from Woakes as he goes wider and bowls a length ball outside off. This time it holds its line as Ajinkya makes another confident leave.
  • 11.4Tight line and length! In the corridor of uncertainty, straightening a touch after landing. Rahane plants his front foot across and sees it through.
  • 11.3Fuller length ball outside off, eased to covers for an easy run.
  • 11.2Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 11.1Nicely done! Knows where his off stump is, leans ahead and dead-bats the fullish ball.
  • 10.6Waits for the length ball to arrive and taps it with soft hands towards cover-point. A bit of a yes and no situation as the batsmen set off and the fielder goes towards it but sanity prevails. A run taken. 19/2
  • 10.5Brilliant from Jimmy! He brings this one in after taking it away in the previous ball. It is on a back of a length and keeps on shaping in sharply. Pujara makes an assured leave.
  • 10.4Fourth leave in a row! Proper Test match cricket this. Swinging away from a length around off, Pujara plants his front foot across and sees it sailing into the gloves of the keeper.
  • 10.3Anderson continues to probe in around the off stump channel and gets the ball to move away. Pujara shuffles and points his bat skywards to allow it through.
  • 10.2Identical to the previous ball and Cheteshwar is happy to leave it.
  • 10.1On the fifth stump line, Che lets it go.
  • James Anderson to bowl from the other end.
  • 9.6In the channel outside off, Ajinkya plants his front foot across to allow it through. Good start from Woakes after Lunch. 18/2
  • 9.5An appeal for an LBW is turned down! Fullish ball around off, jagging in off the deck. Rahane shuffles a touch in order to flick it away but seems to have got an inside edge onto his pads. An appeal ensues but it is turned down. Root doesn't take the review. Replays show that there was a clear deviation off the inside edge.
  • 9.4Well played! Fuller length ball around off, swings away late. Rahane shuffles a touch and blocks it solidly down the track.
  • 9.3Leg bye! On a good length and cutting in sharply, Cheteshwar tries to flick it away but the ball brushes his thigh pad and rolls towards square leg. The batsmen pinch a single.
  • 9.2Woakes bowls this one full around off, CP comes ahead and taps it towards the mid off fielder.
  • 9.1On a length outside off, Pujara points his bat skywards to allow it through.
  • We are back. It is still overcast at the moment but hopefully, the rain will stay away. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane to resume their innings. Chris Woakes to continue his spell. However, the drizzle has again started. The last thing that we want. Four slips in place waiting for the outside edge. Here we go...
  • 1330 local update - Wow. That was quick. The umpires have asked for the groundstaff to get into action seeing that the rain has stopped. We are being told that play should resume by 1400 local (1300 GMT)...
  • 1315 local update - Good news for Indian fans. The drizzle has turned slightly heavier and it would not harm you too much if you decide to go over to the Lankan match and see how they are progressing in the 5th ODI against South Africa...
  • The only thing in favour of India is that the forecast is not that good for the remainder of the day. However, their batsmen need to be prepared for the worst. Perhaps, two solid knocks from Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, might do their confidence a lot of good. England, on the other hand, are ahead by 272 runs. Chris Woakes is also in good rhythm, bowling some really good deliveries. A tough period awaits India if the rain relents. Stay tuned as we bring you updates...
  • The woes continue for India at the top in seaming conditions. After being insipid with the ball and conceding a big lead of 289 runs, their openers, Murali Vijay and Lokesh Rahul, once again failed to counter a belligerent James Anderson and fell cheaply to him. It just shows that they have to tighten their technique in order to succeed overseas.
  • Update 1230 local - Unfortunately, the drizzle has got heavier and the big cover is being roped in to protect the pitch. It always seemed to be on the cards and the umpires have decided that they can't risk it any further. More covers come in to be put on the square. They have also called for an early Lunch which is a wise decision.
  • 8.6On a length, Ajinkya hangs back and stonewalls it. 17/2
  • 8.5Pitched up ball around off, Rahane leans ahead and blocks it confidently.
  • 8.4Back of a length ball outside off, punched nicely off the back foot towards cover-point.
  • 8.3Nicely controlled actually! On a length, some nibble in the air. Rahane opens his bat-face and plays it off the outer half with soft hands in front of third slip.
  • 8.2A huge appeal for an LBW falls on deaf ears! Fullish delivery just outside off, cutting in appreciably. Pujara tries to keep it out but is hit on the pads as the ball rolls to the leg side. The batsmen set off as Anderson rises up confidently along with the slip cordon but Aleem Dar shakes his head. Root has a chat with Jimmy but decides against the review. The replay shows that it would have missed leg.
  • 8.1Pitched up ball around off, Pujara has it covered and blocks it right under his eyes.
  • 7.6Good length ball angling in from around off, Pujara plays it off the inner half towards square leg for an easy single. Decent start from Woakes. 16/2
  • 7.5A harmless delivery on the sixth stump channel, moving away as Cheteshwar lets it go. Bairstow dives to his right and takes it on the bounce.
  • 7.4Full length ball attacking the stumps, Pujara leans ahead to block it with authority.
  • 7.3The batsman works it down the leg side.
  • 7.2Back of a length outside off, Che camps back and plays it with an angled bat towards the point region.
  • 7.1Woakes is on the money with immediate effect! Runs in hard and bowls a length ball in the avenue of apprehension. Gets it to jag away late as Pujara pokes at it but misses.

  • 6.6In the zone outside off, coming in sharply with some extra bounce. Rahane lifts his bat and makes a good leave. A wicket and 2 runs from the over. 15/2
  • 6.5Fullish ball but it is straight in line, flicked around the corner for a single.

  • 6.3Dug in short, CP ducks under it.
  • 6.2Fullish ball outside off, Rahane eases it through cover-point and takes a run. Thinks about the second but it is not on offer. Gets off the mark with that.
  • Ajinkya Rahane strides out to bat. There is still time before Virat Kohli can come out to bat. We are hearing 19 more minutes.
  • 6.1OUT! Rahul's poor tour continues! It is all looking gloomy for India while England are reigning supreme under dark clouds. Fuller length ball around off, hits the deck and angles in sharply. Rahul shuffles a touch but falls over a bit in an attempt to flick it across. Misses and is hit flush in front of the stumps. Jimmy rises up in a vociferous appeal and umpire Aleem Dar obliges. KL shakes his head and keeps on walking as he goes past Pujara. Seems dead on this occasion so no point in making use of the technology. The Hawk Eye also confirms that. The visitors trail by 276.
  • 5.6Broad drags his length back, Cheteshwar is quick to adjust as he camps back and answers it with a straight bat. 13/1
  • 5.5Solid as a rock! Needs to continue in the same vein. Comes forward to the inswinging full ball and dead-bats it.
  • 5.4Well played! Good length ball, angling in on middle and leg, Pujara waits for it and tucks it through mid-wicket. Pope hares after it and cuts it off to keep the batsmen down to a couple.

  • 5.2Broad is probing in that off stump channel, Pujara plants his front foot across to make an assured leave.

  • 4.5On a fuller length on the fifth stump channel, Pujara keeps his bat inside the line to allow it through.
  • 4.4Pitched up ball around off and shaping in from there, CP comes forward and presents a water-tight defense.
  • 4.3Full ball and straight again, flicked to the leg side for a single.
  • 4.2FOUR! Easy pickings! First real bad ball from Anderson and it has been put away. Full and down the leg side, Rahul flicks it towards fine leg. The man from deep backward square leg tries to cut it off but only comes second best.
  • 4.1Close shave! Full ball around off, some nibble in the air. Pujara pushes at it tentatively and gets a thick inside edge past his stumps towards fine leg. A run taken and with that, Che is off the mark.
  • 3.6On a length, cutting in, Rahul shuffles a touch and stonewalls it. 4/1
  • 3.5Full ball attacking the stumps, kept out watchfully.
  • 3.4The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 3.3FOUR! Crisp! Runs have finally come on the 21st ball of the innings. Full ball outside off, Rahul leans ahead and caresses it through covers to pick up his first boundary.
  • 3.2Length ball around off, shaping in sharply. Lokesh hangs back to cover the line but is hit on the thigh pad. An appeal ensues but not that convincing and the umpire stays put. Height was the factor.
  • 3.1Fullish length ball, angling in, Rahul strides ahead to block it solidly.
  • 2.6Beaten neck and crop! Fullish ball outside off, swinging away sharply. Pujara pokes at it and gets foxed. A brilliant over from Anderson, a wicket maiden for him. India are again 0/1 in 3 overs as they were in their first innings. 0/1

  • 2.4Fuller length ball, defended nicely off the front foot.
  • 2.3In the channel outside off, left alone.
  • Cheteshwar Pujara comes out to bat.
  • 2.2OUT! It is that man, Anderson, who has once again come to haunt India! After taking a fifer in the first innings, he has come out firing on all cylinders this time too. Bowls a fuller length ball in the tight off stump corridor and gets it to cut back in appreciably. Vijay comes forward tentatively to defend it but there is a slight gap between his bat and pad. The ball takes the inside edge of his bat and carries through to Jonny Bairstow. Vijay bags a pair which also happens to be his first in Test matches. Jimmy jumps in delight along with his mates. This is his 550th Test wicket and also his 100th at Lord's. Holds the red cherry in his right hand and gets a standing ovation from the Lord's crowd.
  • 2.1Good length ball around off, kept out watchfully.
  • 1.6A harmless ball wide outside off, swinging away further. Rahul ignores it. It also keeps low and bounces once as Bairstow stops it partially. No run conceded though. A maiden for Broad as well. 0/0

  • 1.1Bowls a fuller length ball on the fifth stump channel, moving away. Rahul watches it through.
  • Stuart Broad, surprisingly, will bowl from the other end. He was not at his best in the first innings. Perhaps Curran or Woakes would have been a better choice.
  • 0.6The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump. A maiden to start but nowhere near as tight as Jimmy was in the first over of the first innings. 0/0
  • 0.5Down the leg side, Vijay misses his flick.
  • 'It has started to drizzle', says Sourav Ganguly on air. Indian fans' hopes go up... In addition, Sanjay Manjrekar informs that Virat Kohli will not be able to bat till 37 minutes of play have passed as that was the time he spent in the dressing room last evening and this morning.
