    Pitch report

    “It's looking quite good. A few indentations but nothing to let the batsmen think this is going to be difficult for batting. But there are other parts which have some wear and tear - the bowler's followthroughs. Moeen Ali exploited that. There is no Ashwin for India to exploit it against right handers. Jadeja can exploit against the left-hander, but when he bowls, India will be hoping he bowls to Moeen Ali, Sam Curran than Rory Burns,” says Michael Holding on Sky Sports.

  • Aug 16, 2021 03:20 PM IST

    A look at the pitch for final day's play

    Will the Indian tail wag? How'll Pant would bat on this track? Will spinners get any assistance froom the track? 

    There are many questions and all the answers will be revelaed once the action begins at Lord's.

    2nd Test, Day 5 Live: Bharat Army has a message for Team India

    The Bharat Army is behind the Indian team irrespective of the situation. they still believe India can pull this one off at Lord's and take a 1-0 lead.

  • Aug 16, 2021 03:10 PM IST

    Will India miss Ashwin on Day 5?

    Moeen Ali changed the course of India's innings by getting two wickets - that of Rahane and Jadeja (which by the way was an absolute ripper). So keeping that in mind, will India miss having Ashwin in their XI? They do have Ravindra Jadeja, who can really make it tweak, but the thought of Ashwin performing on a fifth day pitch would have made for an exciting prospect. The off-spinner would be smacking his lips looking at the ball from Ali that got Jadeja. 

  • Aug 16, 2021 03:04 PM IST

    Day 5, Pitch report

    The pitch is looking good. There are a few marks but nothing for the batsmen to worry too much about, says Michael Holding. Having said that, remember how a few balls behaved odd yesterday? The one that got Pujara out exploded, while a few kept low against Rahul as well. However, there are some areas - the marks around the stumps - will offer the batsmen a challenging time.

    India-England to follow the thrilling finish of Pakistan-West Indies?

    It's a good time to be fan of Test cricket. Yesterday, West Indies and Pakistan produced a thrilling finish to a Test match as Kemar Roach played the innings of his life. With one gripping finish just a day ago, the action now shifts to Lord's. The stage is set for another riveting finish.

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:55 PM IST

    No shortage of motivation

    Already Ravi Shastri was seen speaking to Rishabh Pant a little while ago. And just now, Virat Kohli was spotted addressing his teammates. Words are a good starting point, but he would want his batsman and bowlers convert them into a solid performance.

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:50 PM IST

    Time for some number crunching

    Only on three occasions at Lord's, has a side defended a score in the fourth innings of 200 or less. So that perhaps offer a bit of a guide that anything over 200 gets pretty interesting. If India can get themselves a lead of something near 220, a cracking game is going to be on. In case you missed it, at the moment, India's lead is 154.

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:45 PM IST

    Update on Mark Wood

    Former England batsman Nick Knight says there is a slim chance of Mark Wood bowling today as the fast bowler was seen with a heavy strapping on his right shoulder. Wood chased a ball heading to the boundary, but upon the dive, collided with the advertisement boards and was immediately seen favouring his shoulder. He eventually walked off the field.

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:40 PM IST

    England will surely take the second new ball

    The dipping lights on Day 4 and the ball turning a bit, Joe Root decided against taking the second new ball late on Sunday and continued with the old ball for two overs. But with a fresh day ahead and a cover of dark clouds overhead, England will surely start Day 5's proceedings with the second new ball against Pant and Ishant.

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:35 PM IST

    Vaughan has his say on the Lord's Test

    India, England… you see this? Michael Vaughan feels we can have a winner today, and if that happens, one team will head into Leeds with a 1-0 lead.

    2nd Test, Day 5, Live: Weather Update

    Well, unlike Day 5 of the Nottingham Test, the final day at Lord's on Monday is expected to be a lot better. Conditions may remain overcast but chances of rain are very dim. So if you're an Indian fan hoping for rain to save the team… if comes down to it that is… it's not an update you'd want to hear. 

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:25 PM IST

    Can Pant restore parity for India?

    The final day of the Lord's Test is set for a tantalizing finish. Three sessions left to determine the outcome. If India can hold fort for the first session, their lead will certainly cross 200 or even more, which means England will be left with two session to chase them down. An England win, an India win or a draw… all three outcomes are possible today. Who said Mondays can be tough?

  • Aug 16, 2021 02:20 PM IST

    Indian fans, how much lead do you think will be enough for England?

    A) 175 to 200
    B) 200 to 250
    C) 250-plus

    To be honest, with four wickets left and England already into the tail, option C might not even be a candidate here, but let us not forget that Ishant does have a Test fifty. It's a long tail that India have and anything close to what happened in the first innings of the Nottingham Test would prove gold dust here.
