Stumps on Day 2
And that will be the final ball of the day. India fell short by 7 runs but that is the end of Day 2 at Lord's. England 119/3, well behind India's first-innings total of 364. Yet another session that belongs to India. Even though Root and Burns added 85 runs for the third wicket, that India picked up three wickets - two in the beginning and one in the closing moments of play - makes them the winner of that session.
Aug 13, 2021 10:41 PM IST
WICKET! Shami gets the breakthrough
OUT! Burns misses 50 as Shami traps him LBW for 49. Much-needed breakthrough for India as they break this threatening partnership. Burns takes the review. No inside edge and the ball would have cannoned onto the stumps. England 108/3
Aug 13, 2021 10:17 PM IST
Joe Root, England's second highest Test run-getter
Joe Root has overtaken the great Graham Gooch to become England's second-highest run-scorer. Gooch scored 8900 runs for England, and Root is now five ahead of him. Only Alastair Cook is ahead of Root now with 12,472 runs.
Aug 13, 2021 10:02 PM IST
FOUR! Burns grows in confidence
Burns and Root have added 55 for England's third wicket with the opening batsman showing a lot of intent in the last half an hour. Ishant drops the ball full and in the slot, and Burns plays an emphatic cover drive for a boundary.
Aug 13, 2021 09:41 PM IST
Three adventurous deliveries from Ishant to Root
Ishant begins his new over with a loose delivery - short and wide, which Root gleefully puts away to the boundary. Next ball, Root edges Ishant as the ball flies through the vacant second slip. Third ball of the over, Root inside edged the ball, which went to Pant on the bounce.
Aug 13, 2021 09:38 PM IST
Three fours in four balls, England bring up FIFTY
If Burns showed he was good with drives, here he cracks back to back pull shots for fours. Authoritative strokes, almost identical shots.
Aug 13, 2021 09:35 PM IST
FOUR! Burns drives down the ground
While all the focus has been on Root, Rory Burns is slowly going about his innings. Drives Siraj beautifully down the ground for his third four. Lovely to the eye.
Aug 13, 2021 09:33 PM IST
Another poor call, another review burned
India have lost another review. Siraj once again to Root and the ball hits the England captain on his pads. Surely a lot closer than the previous one but still you get the hint that it's missing leg. But Siraj things otherwise and convinces Kohli to go for it. The India captain went with it even though Kohli tried to stop him from displaying the T sign. Up he goes and it's another review lost for India
Aug 13, 2021 09:10 PM IST
India lose a review
India are a review down after they reviewed an LBW call against Root. Siraj rapped him on the pads and even though there was no bat involved, it was doing too much. The tracker shows the ball missing leg stump.
Aug 13, 2021 09:09 PM IST
Siraj loses his line, Root capitalises
Siraj has bowled wicket to wicket so far but on that instance he loses his line and drifts the ball down Root's pads. Easy picking for the England captain, who flicks for four. The kind of form he is in, he would put those away with his eyes closed.
Aug 13, 2021 08:59 PM IST
Root tucks Siraj away for four
Joe Root is underway as he rolls his wrists convincingly to get himself his first boundary. England have their hopes pinned on Root once again.
Aug 13, 2021 08:38 PM IST
WICKET! Two in two for Siraj
OUT! Two wickets in two balls as Siraj cleans up Hameed for a duck. What happened there? Did he expect the ball to move? Has to be. Hameed had no clue. It was full and straight, and beat Hameed's defence to be castled. England 23/2. What more? Siraj is on a hat-trick.
Aug 13, 2021 08:36 PM IST
WICKET! Siraj strikes first over after tea
OUT! Siraj strikes second ball into the final session. Dom Sibley chips the ball to KL Rahul at short mid-wicket. He's done it again. The dismissal is identical to the one in the first innings of the Nottingham Test. There too, he had fallen after a session interval. England 23/1
Aug 13, 2021 08:16 PM IST
Tea on Day 2, England 23/0
Only 41 runs scored in the second session but England would be happy heading into the interval without having lost a wicket. They trail India by 341 runs.
Aug 13, 2021 08:14 PM IST
India bring in Shami, Siraj just before tea
After a six and five over spell for Ishant and Bumrah, India make a double bowling change bringing in the other two pacers - Shami and Siraj - into the attack. One more over to go before the tea break.
Aug 13, 2021 07:58 PM IST
A quiet start
Like India, England's start hasn't been adventurous either. Ishant and Bumrah have operated on tight lines and lengths to keep Sibley and Burns in check. Neither batsman would mind it though. That is exactly what India did yesterday, and we all know how their openers were rewarded later on for that approach.
Aug 13, 2021 07:32 PM IST
Sibley away with a glorious boundary
First four for England and it comes off the bat of Dom Sibley. Slightly full in length and Sibley produces the full face of the bat to play a glorious on drive as the ball races away.
Aug 13, 2021 07:16 PM IST
Nicked, but safe! Almost a wicket in the first over for India
Ishant induces the outside edge of Rory Burns' bat but it falls just short of Rohit Sharm at second slip. Burns takes a single to finish the over. England off the mark.
Aug 13, 2021 07:02 PM IST
India all out for 364
Mark Wood picks up the final wicket as Ravindra Jadeja top edges to Anderson for 40. With that, the Indian innings comes to an end at 364. Not what they would have had in mind after finishing Day 1 on 276/3. On a morning, there India fancied their chances of putting in excess of 400-plus on the board, they lost 7 wickets for 86 runs.
Aug 13, 2021 06:58 PM IST
It's a five-for for James Anderson, what a legend
Nicked, Out! James Anderson has another five-wicket haul. India 364/9
Aug 13, 2021 06:49 PM IST
Wicket: Anderson ends Ishant's vigil
A useful partnership of 26 runs come to an end as Anderson traps Ishant out LBW for 8. The batsman took the review and even though the impact was outside off, it counted since it was umpire's call. India retain the review but lose a wicket. Eight down for 362.
Aug 13, 2021 06:38 PM IST
FOUR! Ishant gives himself room
After a series of blocks, Ishant backs away, gives himself room as smashes Wood over point for four. Right in the slot and Ishant says, ‘Alright! This one’s got to go'.
Aug 13, 2021 06:36 PM IST
Another nervy moment for Ishant
Wood is peppering Ishant Sharma with the short balls but he is batting with defiance. However, Ishant almost gets himself into trouble as he taps the ball just wide off Haseeb Hameed at short leg. Jadeja doesn't responds and with Ishant out of the crease, Hameed has a shy at stumps but misses. A direct hit that would have been it for Ishant's stay.
Aug 13, 2021 06:24 PM IST
350 up for India, Ishant withstands England pacers
Ishant Sharma is doing a decent job with the bat, seeing out overs. First from Anderson and now from Robinson. He guides the ball through third slip and gully to complete a couple of runs and bring up India's 350.
Aug 13, 2021 06:20 PM IST
Anderson has a crack at Ishant
No single off the last ball of the last over meant that James Anderson got a full over to bowl at Ishant Sharma but India's No. 9 plays it out brilliantly and rushes for a single. Jadeja couldn't take a single which means he will once again be on strike for the next over as well.
Aug 13, 2021 06:14 PM IST
Jadeja escapes run-out chance
A direct hit and that could have been curtains for Jadeja, and possibly India's hopes to get to 400. Ishant taps the ball and takes off for a single. Jadeja responds as well but probably didn't run as quickly. Haseeb Hammed missed the stumps with a weak throw.
Aug 13, 2021 06:03 PM IST
India would want to keep this streak intact
Do you know? India have not lost a Test match after scoring 300-plus runs in the first innings of a Test match since 2015. India's last defeat after scoring over 300 in the first innings came against Australia in 2014 at Brisbane.
Aug 13, 2021 05:57 PM IST
Can Jadeja-Ishant repeat what Jadeja-Bhuvneshwar did in 2014?
Seven years ago at Lord's, it was Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar's partnership of 80-odd runs that brought India back in the match. Once again today at Lord's, can Jadeja and Ishant's pair offer something similar for India?
Aug 13, 2021 05:51 PM IST
Jadeja fights for India
Ravindra Jadeja is the last recognised batsman out in the middle for India and the team would require a Nottingham-kind of innings from him if they are to eye 400. In the first Test, Jadeja found himself in a more-or-less similar scenario, just that he had KL Rahul at the other end. Today, he has the tail to bat with. Can he get India going?
Aug 13, 2021 05:45 PM IST
Pujara, Rahane right down there
Numbers don't lie, and this depicts Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane's struggles in the last few years. And this is when Pujara had two brilliant tours of Australia.
Aug 13, 2021 05:36 PM IST
Lunch on Day 2, England pick up 4 wickets for 70 runs
It has been England's morning session but overall, India still have the tighter grip on the match. They are approaching the 350-run mark and if they can somehow squeeze some runs from the lower order and get to 400, surely their position promises strengthen even further.
Aug 13, 2021 05:30 PM IST
Jadeja pulls Wood for FOUR
This may be the last over before lunch but like they say, the poor balls need to be scored off. Short ball from Wood on the leg side and Jadeja brings out the pull shot to send the ball towards the fine leg boundary.
Aug 13, 2021 05:22 PM IST
Jadeja keeping Ishant off strike for the most part
He sure can rally, can Ishant Sharma. He has a Test half-century after all. But with India so close to lunch, perhaps Jadeja wants to ensure India do not lose another wicket, not at least before the session break. Decides against a single but reluctantly takes it.
Aug 13, 2021 05:14 PM IST
GONE! Duck for Shami
Second ball duck for Mohammed Shami as Moeen Ali picks up his first wicket. A soft dismissal as Shami is unable to keep the flick down and is out caught. That's the fourth Indian wicket to fall this morning and what a session this is turning out to be for the hosts.
Aug 13, 2021 05:04 PM IST
WICKET! Big blow for India as Pant departs
Edged and Taken! Wood snares out Pant (37 off 58 balls) as India lose their 6th wicket for 331. Not what India needed, but the morning session turns even more delightful for England. Short and wide; Pant goes after it. but nowhere near the middle. He offers a faint nick to the keeper and that's it for him.
Aug 13, 2021 04:59 PM IST
Is that a drop? Nope
Moeen Ali generated enough turn to beat Ravindra Jadeja's outside edge. The ball spun enough, to an extent that it went towards Joe Root at first slip after pitching. So quite obviously, the crowd thought there was en edge and produced a huge SIGH. However, there was no edge but runs have been offered to Jadeja.
Aug 13, 2021 04:46 PM IST
Pant's two extremes
As has been the case with him lately, there is a method to Pant's madness. His attacking batting may not please those who are a sucker for Test matches, but even when he's attacking, there is thinking behind it. Today, he has either charged down the wicket or looked to defend with a flat bat. It's not slogging, this is proper Test match batting. Play out when it's there to look, and hit out when the opportunity comes.
Aug 13, 2021 04:40 PM IST
FOUR! Pant hammers through the covers
That was bowled at over 140 kmph. It was pre-meditated as Pant started the shuffle even before the ball was delivered. He charges down to Wood and crunches the ball through covers for his fifth boundary. Follows it next ball with a couple.
Aug 13, 2021 04:37 PM IST
England the happier side at the end of the first hour
Drinks on the field. It's been a good opening hour for England, with those two early wickets. Besides, they haven't given away too many runs either. In fact, only 32 runs so far with Rishabh Pant scoring 21 of those.
Aug 13, 2021 04:26 PM IST
Jadeja's run drought ends, India bring up 200
Finally, some runs for Ravindra Jadeja, as he tucks a ball from Sam Curran to deep square leg boundary. With that, India's 300 comes up for the loss of five wickets.
Aug 13, 2021 04:22 PM IST
Jadeja 1 off 28
Sedate batting from Ravindra Jadeja, who is leaving anything that is even marginally outside off. Like a proper batsman, he is giving respect to the conditions and the fast bowlers early on. This partnership between him and Pant is 20 off 61 balls.
Aug 13, 2021 04:14 PM IST
Pant gives the charge to Anderson
Vintage Pant on display here. These are testing times for the batsmen but Pant will take his chances today it seems. Once again, he dances down the wicket hoping to go after Anderson, but this time around, Pant doesn't middle it but manages to get enough bat to take the ball over mid on and get a couple of runs.
Aug 13, 2021 04:01 PM IST
Consecutive fours! Cracking shot from Pant
Pant won't hold back. Robinson tries two short balls in a row, and Pant sends both for fours with a couple of cracking pull shots. The first one was bludgeoned for four, and even though the next wasn't timed as well, it had enough power to beat the fielder in the deep.
Aug 13, 2021 03:59 PM IST
FOUR! Intent from Pant
Pant doing what he does best. It doesn't matter if India have lost their two overnight batsmen, Pant will play the way he is known for. Steps down the track and has a go at Anderson. He slashes hard as the ball flies over the cordon for a four towards third man. Having blocked so many balls, Pant says enough is enough.
Aug 13, 2021 03:55 PM IST
Meanwhile, Pant starts off with a four
Three overs and already so much has happened. Two wickets and a boundary. Rishabh Pant starts off in style, driving Robinson straight down the ground to collect his first four of the innings.
Aug 13, 2021 03:39 PM IST
WICKET! Anderson gets Rahane
OUT! Anderson picks up his third, India lose Rahane now to stand at 282/5. Two overs, two wickets for England. Rahane's poor string of scores continue. Loose shot. First ball from Anderson and Rahane nicks it to Root at first slip. His first ball of the day and he heads back. Talk about a dream start. Even England wouldn't have hoped for this.
Aug 13, 2021 03:33 PM IST
WICKET! Robinson gets Rahul
OUT! England strike 2nd ball of the day as Rahul hits a cover drive straight to the fielder. In the slot but Rahul plays it uppishly to Dominic Sibley. He was so good with his cover drives yesterday but makes an error in the first one he plays today. India 278/4
Aug 13, 2021 03:33 PM IST
And we're underway
First ball of the day and India are off to a confident start. KL Rahul tucks the ball off his pads for a couple of runs. India are away on Day 2.
Aug 13, 2021 03:30 PM IST
2nd Test, Live: How much can India get from here on?
276 runs with seven wickets left. Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja to follow. With such luxury, don't think it will be ambitious to say that India would surely target somewhere around 400-450. Yes, there have been mini collapses in the past but India's batting looks a lot more assured in this innings. Big test for Ajinkya Rahane, and India would hope that their vice-captain can repeat his Lord's heroics of 2014.
Aug 13, 2021 03:25 PM IST
Rahul goes up the prestigious Lord's Honours Board
Where would you place this knock from KL Rahul? It certainly has to be right up there in his top three of all time, purely on the basis of when it's happened. Trying to make a comeback into the Test team, in England, in overcast conditions and against a strong fast-bowling attack. Thoroughly deserved.
Aug 13, 2021 03:17 PM IST
What's ailing Cheteshwar Pujara?
Cheteshwar Pujara's last Test fifty came 10 innings ago. What's more concerning that he is struggling to do the one things he's made a career out of - spend time at the wicket. Most of his dismissals are similar as well - edging to either the wicketkeeper or to slips. In Australia, it was either Josh Hazlewood or Pat Cummins and in England, it's currently Anderson.
Aug 13, 2021 03:04 PM IST
Rohit calls Lord's innings as most challenging
"I wouldn't say the best because as long as you are playing. There will be a lot of opportunities that you will be having. But yes certainly challenging, the most challenging innings I have played. I felt very good, I was happy with the way we started off. Unfortunate dismissal but I couldn't have done anything to that," said Rohit while replying to a query from ANI.
Aug 13, 2021 02:46 PM IST
Aakash Chopra's prediction
"India will score more than 375 runs. They are still 100 runs away from that, I feel they will reach till there. I feel Rahul will cross the 150-run mark. Fingers, toes, everything crossed," said Chopra.
Aug 13, 2021 02:30 PM IST
India look to get past the 400-run mark?
India will look to get their score past the 400-run mark. A lot depends on how KL Rahul carries on his innings. Ajinkya Rahane will also look to get back among the runs.
Aug 13, 2021 02:23 PM IST
Although it is not expected to rain on Friday but knowing the England weather, nothing can be guaranteed. It is going to be cloudy but rain might make an appearance in the second half of the day.

India vs England 2nd Test Day 2 - LIVE!
Hello and welcome to our live blog on Day 2 of the first Test between India and England. India have the upper hand going into the second day as KL Rahul scored a century as India reached a score of 276/3. But fans will hope the weather does not play the villain here at Lord's.
