(India takes on England in the 2nd Test match in India’s Tour of England at Lords. Catch all the Live Score Updates and Live Cricket Action here.)
After a day of scintillating Test cricket when the balance tipped in India’s favour when they managed to take 4 wickets and leave England in a difficult yet competitive position with an entire days play left to decide the fate of the test match at Lord’s.
India could have been at a more commanding position with 5 English wickets but Moeen Ali is a lucky man as he bats on the 5th day. A point of major concern for India is the wicket keeping by MS Dhoni which has deteriorated throughout the course of the match.
India is on the verge of creating history by defeating England. The statistics are in India’s favour with only one team successfully chasing down a target of 319 or more at Lord’s in the past. Joe Root and Moeen Ali are the hope for England as they aim to crash the Indian party by taking England past the 214 runs mark required for the hosts to win.
Mohammad Shami and Ishant Sharma will try and bundle off the England side along with the speedy spin attack from Ravinder Jadeja. MS Dhoni played the role of a more active captain rather than stick to a more mellow approach which had its shortcomings but has proved fruitful. It is down to the Indian bowling attack to slam through the England side and start the party.
