After fifth-ranked England defeated the world's ICC Number One ranked Test cricket side, nipping India by 35 runs in the first Test of an epic five-match series, India will look to draw level with their hosts at the home of cricket, as the first day of the second Test will live stream, from Lord's Cricket Ground on Thursday.


England prevailed despite a memorable 149-run first innings from India Captain Virat Kohli, who added another 51 in his second go-round, per CricInfo stats, to account for almost half of his team's runs "47 percent to be exact" as England bowlers stymied the remainder of the India order, with only Hardik Pandya in his second innings managing to break the 30-run mark. Ben Stokes took four wickets in the second innings, including the crucial wicket of Kohli coming via LBW as well as the final wicket of the match which belonged to Pandya, according to an ESPN report.


But Stokes has been ruled out of the Lord's Test, Indian Express reported, due to his ongoing trial over his role in a brutal bar fight in Bristol, England, last September, according to the BBC. Though Kohli was subject to criticism in the Indian press for his leadership in the first Test, his performance at the bat earned him the world's top Test batsman ranking, surpassing Australia's Steve Smith.


To find out how to watch a live stream of the second Test in the epic, five-match series between England and India, with India looking to pull level the world's Number five Test side, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. First ball is scheduled for 11 a.m. British Summer Time on Thursday, August 9, at the legendary Lord's Cricket Ground in St. John's Wood, London, England. In India, that start time will be 3:30 p.m. India Standard Time, while in the United States, cricket fans will need to get up early "or stay up late" to watch the second Test match live stream at 6 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 3 a.m. Pacific.


With the absence of Stokes, 20-year-old Surrey batsman Ollie Pope will be called up for his Test debut, CricInfo reports. Pope declared himself "just ready to put the shirt on and just want to perform at my best. Everyone always says, if you're good enough, you're old enough."

47.6 OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Ishant Sharma. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, inside edge to leg slip, by Pope. Sharp reflexes from Ollie Pope, the debutant able to gobble the chance to seal victory for England. nnnnIn between the rain and the gloom, India have been utterly destroyed by England at Lords. It must be noted that the tourists were subject to completely alien conditions that would have challenged any side around the world, but that doesnt change the fact they were massively outplayed. The hosts were ruthlessly clinical from the moment Joe Root won the toss, with his bowlers relishing conditions throughout. India showed slightly more resistance today with the bat, but on this surface there was always going to be wicket-taking deliveries just around the corner, so it was just a case of waiting for the opportunity when the weather allowed. The visitors have it all to do now in the series, requiring an immediate response at Trent Bridge, another ground that Englands bowlers have enjoyed in recent years.
47.5 Chris Woakes to Ishant Sharma. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third slip for no runs, fielded by Jennings.

47.2 Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, Gloved to third slip for no runs, fielded by Jennings. Ashwin has really been in the wars today. He wears another brutal delivery on the glove so well take drinks while he receives treatment. England are on the brink of a crushing victory.
47.1 Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Pope.

46.1 OUT! L.B.W. James Anderson to Mohammed Shami. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, hit pad to. Oh dear, thats the shot of a genuine tail-ender and not what India needed. Shami inexplicably attempts an ugly heave but is miles away from making contact, and the umpire has the finger up in the blink of an eye. Thats nine wickets in the match for Anderson and a great chance to take ten for the first time at Lords.
Over 45. 4 runs. Bowler: Chris Woakes. India: 8-125(rr 2.78)
45.6 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, past third man for 4 runs.

44.6 APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. James Anderson to Mohammed Shami. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Bairstow, appeal made for Caught. Prolonged appeal, and eventually the dreaded digit is raised. Anderson goes for the suprise bouncer, Shami cant resist a big swish of the willow but hes convinced he hasnt hit it. Replays show it missed everything on the way though, so Shami will survive.
44.5 James Anderson to Mohammed Shami. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Root.
44.4 OUT! Bowled. James Anderson to Kuldeep Yadav. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to. Timber, Kuldeep is all at sea against the king of swing. Jimmy looks to angle the ball across the left-hander and then some nip takes the ball back the other way. Kuldeep plays with hard hands and can only divert it onto his stumps via the inside edge. England are on the charge, the end is not too far away.
44.3 James Anderson to Kuldeep Yadav. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
44.2 James Anderson to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for 1 run, fielded by Woakes.
44.1 FOUR! James Anderson to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Anderson goes wide of the crease, but the ball just slides onto Ashwins pads allowing the spinner a simple boundary.
Over 43. no runs. Bowler: Chris Woakes. India: 7-116(rr 2.70)
43.6 Chris Woakes to Kuldeep Yadav. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

43.1 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Woakes comes into the attack and is bang on target immediately. Its a prolonged appeal from the Warwickshire man but the umpire shakes his head. England fancy this is out and ask for a review. A bit of nibble back off the deck is what beats Pandyas prod forward, and HawkEye says it was nailing the leg stump flush. Great review breaks the pesky partnership.

40.2 FOUR! James Anderson to Ravichandran Ashwin. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Slashed over the gully region, that was a little edgey but always going to be safe. These two are starting to build a nice little partnership for the tourists.
40.1 James Anderson to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

38.4 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past deep backward point for 4 runs. Skewed behind point, there was a shout of catch but Anderson at backward point was never really in with a chance.

37.3 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Broad has been looking to bowl in-swingers to the right-handers primarily, but every now and then he gets one to nip away and challenge the outside edge. Pandya cant resist a drive and gets lucky when the edge soars wide of the waiting slips.
37.2 Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Root.
37.1 Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

35.6 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. There hasnt been much for Indian fans to cheer so far today but they will have enjoyed this. Pandya keeps his bat straight and his elbow high, technically pure batting.
35.5 Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. Short, outside off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
35.4 Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to third man for 3 runs, fielded by Buttler.

35.2 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Lovely balance, Ashwin stood tall and watched this swing onto the middle of his blade when it wouldve been easy to fall over to the offside.
35.1 Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, inside edge to gully for no runs, fielded by Root.
Over 34. 7 runs. Bowler: Sam Curran. India: 6-73(rr 2.15)

34.5 Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, Gloved to mid off for 1 run, direct hit by Broad. Another nasty blow to the gloves, this time Ashwin the victim. Inconsistent bounce is coming more into play now, as if life wasnt already difficult enough for the Indian batsmen. That has hit Ashwin on the index finger of his right-hand, a worrying moment for him as that is his spinning finger. He is in a lot of pain but will carry on batting.
34.4 Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, to point for no runs, fielded by Anderson.

33.5 Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, Gloved to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Pope. Extra bounce from Broad wraps Pandya on the glove. The all-rounder is in pain and requires some attention from the physio.
33.4 Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
33.3 Stuart Broad to Hardik Pandya. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Anderson.

Over 32. 1 run. Bowler: Sam Curran. India: 6-66(rr 2.06)
32.6 Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Anderson. Rain hammers down once again at Lords to cause a delay in the action. India will be quite pleased to take more time out of the match, it seems like that is all that can save them from crashing to an innings defeat. Stuart Broad was on fire in that session, bounding in and causing issues almost every delivery. England are now just four wickets from going 2-0 up in the series, but theyll have to wait patiently for the chance while the English summer does its thing. In the meantime the tea break will be taken.
32.5 APPEAL! Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. Back of a length, down leg side no foot movement working, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Anderson, appeal made for L.B.W.

31.4 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Stuart Broad to Dinesh Karthik. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Thats absolutely plumb, Lords is really rocking now as the England faithful sense a victory is on the way. Karthik isnt having a great time on this tour, and youve got to feel for him as he receives a brutal delivery first up from Broad. DK reviews more out of hope than expectation, but it wont save him as he couldnt get far enough forward or outside the line. Broad already has two Test hat-tricks, what an opportunity this is for a third.
31.3 OUT! Caught. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, Gloved to short leg, by Pope. The finger is raised but an instant review from the Indian skipper, Kohli looks very confident. England werent completely convincing with the appeal and even the umpire didnt seem sure. The replays will tell the story. Broad gets the ball to hoop once more, massive in-swing as Kohli looked to turn the ball to leg. UltraEdge shows a thin brush of the glove on the way through and massive cheers erupt around the ground. Pope scooped the ball up smartly diving forward for his first catch in Tests to complete the job. India are reeling now.
31.2 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Seaming in short, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, hit body to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Bairstow, appeal made for Caught. Huge appeal, England think Kohli got a little feather on this down the legside but the umpire says its just off the body. Root has a chat to bowler and keeper before signalling for a review. It was extremely close to brushing the glove on the way through, but no contact so Kohli survives.
31.1 Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for 2 runs, mis-fielded by Root, fielded by Jennings.
30.6 Kohli is really struggling with his back. The physio is out between overs to give him some painkillers and help to loosen him up.
30.5 FOUR! Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Exquisite batting, Kohli threads the gap with surgical precision. One thing is for sure, the Indian captain will keep on fighting right until the very end.

30.3 Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

28.6 Sam Curran to Hardik Pandya. Out-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

27.5 OUT! Bowled. Stuart Broad to Cheteshwar Pujara. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. That is a corker, off stump goes cartwheeling back towards Bairstow. Broad has really worked up a head of steam in this spell, rushing Pujara for pace and regularly beating the bat. It seemed as though Pujara was going to weather the storm before Broad produced this peach to breach the defences. Massive swing hoops into the right-hander and ends his stubborn resistance.

23.3 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, top edge past deep cover for 4 runs. Oh my, an awestruck Lords lets out a gasp at a simply stunning Kohli drive. Its a fairly dangerous stroke with the ball moving so much, but the Indian captain isnt too fussed about that.

22.5 FOUR! Sam Curran to Cheteshwar Pujara. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Brilliant stuff, Pujara is showing the rest of his side how to bat in these conditions. Hes battled hard for well over an hour and now unleashes his first proper aggressive stroke, an authoritative thump back down the ground. Proper old school batting from the number three.

19.6 OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to third slip, by Jennings. Snaffled at third slip, sharp reflexes from Jennings sends Rahane on his way. Broad is delighted with that, hes been probing away with plenty of threatening deliveries and now gets his reward. Rahane wont want to see a replay of the stroke though, its a really poor one in the circumstances. Rain in the air and a ball that is still relatively new, he pokes well away from his body with hard hands. Not what India needed at all.

16.4 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, well timed for 4 runs. Neatly played, Rahane spots the in-swinger and is able to deflect it fine of the fielder back on the fence. Woakes just started his line too straight for that delivery.

14.1 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Thats a languid swing of the willow by Rahane to send the ball racing down the hill for four. Woakes got prodigious swing on that delivery but it was a juicy half volley duly dispatched.

9.6 James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Anderson. Its been raining steadily for quite some time, and now with it getting a bit heavier the umpires have decided it is unfit for play. That was a perfect little session for England, with Jimmy Anderson once again removing both Indian openers cheaply. The crowd wont be too pleased with the weather but I suspect the tourists are quite happy to be off the field. An early lunch will be taken, so for the sake of cricket lets hope we can get back on this afternoon.

7.1 OUT! L.B.W. James Anderson to Lokesh Rahul. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Thats absolutely plumb, everyone in the ground knows it as soon as it cannons into the pad. Rahul was looking to cover the away swing, but this wobbles and decks in to beat the tentative poke on the inside edge. Anderson has got the ball on a string once again and he is loving conditions. He is incredible to watch, a true master at work.

Anderson is back in the groove again, thats his 100th Test wicket at this historic ground. India are one down without scoring for the second time in the match and Vijay has to trudge off having made a pair. Youve got to feel for the opener, hes been victim to a couple of gorgeous deliveries. This one jagged back viciously off the surface to kiss the inside edge, presenting Bairstow with a simple grab.

36.6 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Chris Woakes. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Frustration for Shami as this one drifts too far onto the pads of Woakes. The Warwickshire all-rounder neatly turns the ball into the gap with crisp timing to take England past the 150 mark.

35.4 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ishant Sharma to Jonny Bairstow. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Sharma, appeal made for Caught & Bowled. Hooping inswing from Ishant tucks Bairstow up and the ball pops back to the bowler. India are convinced there was a little inside edge on that but the umpire is having none of it. Kohli reviews almost immediately but it is a waste, clearly no bat involved and the ball also comfortably missing leg for the LBW.

32.6 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Chris Woakes. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Woakes gets off the mark with a fairly streaky shot. The hosts are intent on playing their shots which is creating non-stop action.
32.5 Mohammed Shami to Chris Woakes. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Vijay.
32.4 Mohammed Shami to Chris Woakes. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Pandya.

32.1 OUT! L.B.W. Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler. In-swinging half volley, off stump moves in front flick, hit pad to. Fast and straight, thats how to respond to a batsman who is shuffling around the crease. Buttler can move as much as he wants but the stumps always stay in the same place. He gets blocked off by his pad as the ball dips into him and its another plumb LBW decision. In the context of the match though, that might be a useful little cameo from Buttler.
Over 31. 7 runs. Bowler: Ishant Sharma. England: 4-131(rr 4.23)

31.1 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Jos Buttler. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Runs really flowing since lunch, this will be a big worry for Kohli. Again Buttler isnt completely in control of it but as long as the runs keep coming he wont mind too much.
Over 30. 8 runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. England: 4-124(rr 4.13)

30.3 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. In the slot, that got exactly what it deserved. Bairstow is always looking for an opportunity to score and was never going to miss out.
30.2 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Impeccable driving from Bairstow. Its a perfectly decent delivery but he shows utter contempt for the bowler and sends it rocketing back past him with force.

27.5 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Jos Buttler. In-swinging half volley, middle stump down the track flick, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.

26.5 FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Jos Buttler. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Not entirely convincing but Buttler plays this with soft hands so the edge goes safely into the turf. Third man is vacant so a valuable four runs to the hosts.

25.4 OUT! L.B.W. Mohammed Shami to Joe Root. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. Stone dead, the finger shoots up in an instant to give the tourists their fourth scalp of the morning. There wasnt anything Root could do about this with the ball viciously nipping back into him and keeping a touch low. Shami is delighted with the big wicket of the England captain after an enthralling little battle. nn Lunch will taste a whole lot better for India after that wicket. The hosts have kept the scoreboard moving along but find themselves four wickets down at the break due to some really skilful fast bowling. The top four batsmen all got into double figures for England but on this surface with conditions as they are you can never feel settled at the crease.
25.3 Mohammed Shami to Joe Root. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Vijay.

22.2 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Hardik Pandya to Ollie Pope. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement working, hit pad to. Up goes the finger, Pope is trapped on the crease as Pandya jags one back off the pitch. It looked a decent shout but the Surrey man elects to review after a talk with his captain. It wont save him though, much to the disappointment of the crowd, because it was cannoning into the sticks. Pandya has probed away consistently in this spell and eventually gets his man.

21.1 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Ollie Pope. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Crunched, Pope shows no mercy as Shami returns to the attack with a loosener. The hosts are ticking along nicely and closing in on parity.

9.4 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Ollie Pope. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Huge cheers around Lords as the debutant Pope gets going with a wristy whip. Thats an impressive display of confidence early in his innings.
9.3 Ishant Sharma to Ollie Pope. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Pandya.
9.2 OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. Out-swinging length ball, off stump no foot movement defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Karthik. Thats a beauty, Karthik pouches the thin edge as India roar once more. Cook was looking in prime form but Ishant has produced something special to cut his innings short. Late movement from an ideal length drawing the opener forward leaves Cook groping in hope at the ball.
9.1 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Ishant goes searching for swing but Cook is ready to pounce as it is slightly overpitched. His drive scoots quickly down the hill perfectly square of the wicket.

8.3 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Mohammed Shami to Keaton Jennings. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump no foot movement working, hit pad to. Plumb in front, thats an easy one for the umpire as Shami pins Jennings. The Lancashire man was looking to play this through the legside but his feet got stuck in the crease and his head fell across to off. He asks for a review after a little chat with his opening partner, but its a waste because that was smashing into middle. Shami gets rewarded for his fuller length and the tourists have the opening they needed.
8.2 Mohammed Shami to Keaton Jennings. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Pujara.

Over 3. 5 runs. Bowler: Ishant Sharma. England: 0-14(rr 4.67)
3.6 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Another simple scoring opportunity for England as Cook helps himself to four more off his legs. Hes scored thousands of Test runs in that area so Im not sure its the line India should be bowling.

3.4 Ishant Sharma to Keaton Jennings. Short, down leg side ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Karthik.

2.6 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Alastair Cook. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Thats bread and butter to Cook, on the hip and easily clipped away. You bowl there and he will punish you all day long. India cant afford too much of that this morning.

0.0 Start of England Innings. Good morning, welcome to coverage of Day Three of the Second Test between England and India at Lords where the sun is shining. The tourists were bundled out for just 107 yesterday as Jimmy Anderson and company ran riot in the kind of conditions English bowlers must dream of. Utilising prodigious swing and seam movement, Anderson took 20-5 to leave Virat Kohlis men wishing the rain had carried on falling. It leaves the visitors needing a big response this morning, so its sure to be gripping viewing.

Over 36. no runs. Bowler: James Anderson. India: 10-107(rr 2.97)
36.2 OUT! L.B.W. James Anderson to Ishant Sharma. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. Its a five wicket haul for the king of swing! Well bowled Jimmy Anderson, India just couldnt handle him these conditions, Sharma the last man to go defending in front of all three on the back foot. Anderson was well-supported by Chris Woakes who got the key wicket of Virat Kohli. Englands catching was suspect again but they simply got so many opportunities they were able to hang onto enough. Thats it for day two, England will hope the sun comes out tomorrow and conditions get better for batting. Until then, goodnight.
36.1 James Anderson to Ishant Sharma. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

35.2 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Broad gets in on the act with an inswinger of his own. This comes hooping back, trapping Ashwin on the crease. He was looking to hit the ball legside, there was a woody noise and he does decide to review. The high frame rate on UltraEdge shows that although there was an inside edge it was pad first and after that its three reds on Hawk-Eye. India nine down.
35.1 Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed to deep backward point for no runs, fielded by Pope.
Over 34. 1 run. Bowler: James Anderson. India: 8-96(rr 2.82)
34.6 OUT! L.B.W. James Anderson to Kuldeep Yadav. In-swinging half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. The inswinger from Anderson! Hes been angling the ball across the left-hander but this time its the ball shaping back in. Kuldeep goes too far across with his head and his front foot and once the ball swings back the route is blocked for his bat to get to the ball. Kuldeep reviews but its futile, absolutely plumb.
34.5 James Anderson to Kuldeep Yadav. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

33.4 Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow. Thats more like it from Broad.
33.3 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. And that will be four more. Im not sure bowling short is the way to go to Ashwin, hes a tall man and looks quite comfortable attacking off the back foot. This could be a low scoring game, in conditions like these runs feel much more precious and these could be valuable for India.
33.2 Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
33.1 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Ravichandran Ashwin. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Broad back into the attack and thats another beautiful shot off the back foot from Ashwin. Standing up tall and driving through the covers.

30.4 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Cook. Rahanes resistance is over. Jimmy Anderson back into the attack and that is swing bowling at its best. Another beautiful away swinger, its catching practice for the slips and Alastair Cook is the man who holds onto this one.
30.3 James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Rashid.
30.2 James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

29.2 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Beautiful shot by Ashwin! Crashed off the back foot to the boundary. Attack proving the best form of defence for the Indian all-rounder.
29.1 Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Pope.
Over 28. 5 runs. Bowler: Chris Woakes. India: 6-80(rr 2.86)

28.2 Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. Length ball, off stump on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid on for 2 runs, fielded by Rashid. Rashid has no idea where this has gone! Hes quite close at mid-on and Ashwin gets his shot all wrong, sending it looping up into the air. By the time Rashid has realised where it is its landed somewhere behind him. Woakes sees the funny side of it this time.
28.1 Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the back foot Steer, to third slip for no runs, shy attempt by Root.
Over 27. 2 runs. Bowler: Sam Curran. India: 6-75(rr 2.78)

26.4 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past deep cover for 4 runs. Pitched up and Ashwin goes hard at it. Its in the air but all the fielders are in the slips as opposed to the covers and the ball goes to the boundary. Hard is probably the right way to go for Ashwin if he is going to play, that way he at least has a chance of clearing the slip corden if he does edge it.
26.3 Chris Woakes to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

25.4 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, past fine leg for 4 runs. Curran tries to bowl the one that angles across the right-hander but starts it too straight and Rahane glances it off his thigh, fine of the man at long leg.
25.3 Sam Curran to Ravichandran Ashwin. In-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed to long off for 3 runs, fielded by Woakes.
25.2 OUT! Bowled. Sam Curran to Dinesh Karthik. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Off stump out the ground! Sam Curran gets in on the act! A big hooping inswinger and it came back down the slope off the pitch too! Karthik was defending but with a big wide open gate and the ball sailed on through. Granted it came back a long way but you could have driven a London bus through there.

24.4 Chris Woakes to Dinesh Karthik. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to gully for 1 run, fielded by Pope. Slips all the way round to backward point for Woakes, and rightly so!
24.3 OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Buttler. Well this is bizarre! For the second time after making a complete hash of an opportunity, Buttler is able to make amends the very next ball! Poor old Woakes is having to get each batsman out twice! This is a wonderful display of swing bowling from England.
24.2 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Buttler. Oh dear. Again Jos Buttler misses it completely, the ball going between him and Jennings at third slip but it was Buttlers catch. Woakes is furious.
24.1 Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Pope.

22.4 OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Buttler. Gone gone gone! England have their man and Buttler is able to make amends straight away! Beautiful again from Woakes, pitched up and hooping away from the Indian captain, not too disimilar from Andersons delivery to Vijay. Kohli is looking to flick the ball legside, one of his favourite shots, but the ball shapes too much and takes the leading edge as he closes the face. The ball goes to Buttlers right and he wraps two grateful hands around it.
22.3 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Buttler. Another chance goes begging for England. Lovely bowling from Woakes, he is going to cause right-handers real problems with his natural shape away from them. Kohli decides late to leave the ball and withdraw the bat, but it runs off the face as he goes to do so and finds the gap between Cook and Buttler at first and second slip respectively. Both of them left it in the end, but it was definitely Buttlers catch. Memories of the first test?

20.6 Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow. Excellent bowling from Woakes, he has such a good record here at Lords. Hes getting some beautiful shape away from the right-hander just as Anderson was. Kohli was drawn into a couple of loose shots that over.

20.4 Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to third slip for no runs. And again Kohli plays with very soft hands, again its an outside edge but it drops short of Jennings at third slip this time.

A short-lived appeal from Broad, shaping back in and in fact it did it Rahane in line. As Bairstow seemed to signal though, the ball was indeed going over the top.

12.6 Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to fourth slip for no runs, dropped catch by Root. Chance goes begging! The slips are standing pretty close, especially Root at fourth. Rahane drives at this quite hard and the ball takes a thick edge and flies to Roots right. He sticks out his right hand but cant grasp hold of it. Conditions are much easier for batting than they were in the few overs this morning so England will need to take their chances.
12.5 Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

12.2 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Very full indeed and Rahane presented the middle of the bat. No follow through but he didnt need to. It might have rained but this outfield is still pretty quick and the ball ran away down the slope, reaching the boundary comfortably.
12.1 Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Curran.
Over 11. 6 runs. Bowler: James Anderson. India: 3-22(rr 2.00)
11.6 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Curran. A stroke of luck for Kohli. Anderson angles the seam back in for this one and it continues straight on the angle rather than swinging away. Kohli is used to the ball shaping away and this one takes the inside edge of his bat as he defends, passing close to his leg stump.
11.5 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

9.3 OUT! Run Out. James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point, fielded by Pope. Disaster for India! Pujara plays a forward defence into the offside and calls for a run, Kohli responds and both batsmen set off at speed. All of a sudden as young Ollie Pope reaches the ball Kohli changes his mind. He retreats to the safety of the bowlers end leaving Pujara, who was almost passed him by the time Kohli said no, completely stranded in the middle of the pitch. Pope was alert to the situation and kept his composure, picking up the ball and simply running over to the vacant strikers end and taking off the bails with ball in hand. And now the rain comes! Before Pujara can complete his slow walk from the field the heavens open and Kohli will have to run off after him! Awkward...
9.2 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
9.1 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow. Bizarre, Kohli was halfway up the stairs as it looked like the umpires were taking us off for rain, however they then decided against it and called the batsmen back! Jimmy Anderson was stood at the top of his mark the entire time.

7.6 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow. For the first time Anderson brings one in back down the slope and it cuts Pujara in half, beating the inside edge but bouncing well over the stumps.
7.5 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Rashid.

7.1 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Lokesh Rahul. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Gone! Not really sure how youre supposed to play those. Its the perfect outswinger, you just cant leave it as it starts on line with middle and off. Rahul gets a feather of an edge and Bairsrtow does the rest. I guess the only thing Rahul could have done better was to miss it!

5.6 FOUR! James Anderson to Lokesh Rahul. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, past fine leg for 4 runs. Groans from the England players as Rahul glances the ball down to fine leg. He was a long way across his stumps and with the ball swinging away it did look like had he failed to make contact the ball was on course to hit the stumps. As it is Rahul gets four.

4.4 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Lokesh Rahul. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. India finally have their first runs! Overpitched from Broad and driven nicely by Rahul. Broad is getting movement off the pitch rather than the movement in the air that Anderson is getting.

OUT! Bowled. James Anderson to Murali Vijay. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, missed to. An absolute peach from Jimmy Anderson in the first over! As ever the perfect seam position and Jimmy has got it hooping away from the right-handed Vijay. Pitched up, starting on or outside leg stump this ball swung late. Vijay was looking to pick the ball off into the legside but was done by the lateral movement and the ball past his bat before knocking back his off stump. What a start for England.

0.0 Start of India Innings. Welcome to Lords for the second test match of five between England and India. England triumphed in a rollercoaster ride of a test match last week that had more twists and turns than a best-selling novel. On to Lords and both sides will be considering changes. For England one of these is enforced as Ben Stokes is unavailable with him appearing in court in Bristol over the course of this week. Chris Woakes is his most likely replacement although depending on the pitch Moeen Ali may also be considered. The other confirmed change is that young Ollie Pope will make his debut batting at number four in place of the out-of-form Dawid Malan.nnFor India, there is much talk that they will try and find a way to get Kuldeep Yadav into their eleven. When you consider how Ashwin troubled the England batsmen at Edgbaston you do feel Kuldeep would pose them problems too. Pujara too has a chance of being selected ahead of either Rahul or Dhawan in the Indian top three.nnConditions here are typically English, its overcast and there is some drizzle around after what was a complete washout on day one. It will be interesting to see what the captain who wins the toss will decide to do and with so many tests these days not reaching the fifth day, we still have every chance of a result.
