England v India, Second Test

Live from Lord's

  • LUNCH [lunch]
    An action-packed morning comes to an end with England leading by 13 runs. Vijay (0*) and Dhawan (10*) surviving a testing four-over spell before the break
    7/19/2014 12:02:14 PM
  • So here's how things stand after a fascinating morning session. India trail by 13 runs. #EngvInd

  • Can't say too much at this stage but there is a bit of a grudge match going on this lunchtime...

    7/19/2014 12:18:00 PM
  • Delighted to be over the £6k mark so far with @CityIndex #CelebTrader All money going to the Beefy Foundation
    Pleased to report that any forecast showers are yet to arrive as the players make their way out after lunch. India 11-0
    7/19/2014 12:42:16 PM
  • Over 5 - India 15-0 (Vijay 2, Dhawan 11)
    Dhawan tucks a length ball from Anderson off his hip for the first run of the afternoon session and Vijay then pushes two down the ground. Anderson brings the right-hander forward again later in the over and catches his edge, only for the ball to drop well short of Cook, who takes a blow at first slip
    7/19/2014 12:48:47 PM
  • Over 6 - India 19-0 (Vijay 2, Dhawan 16)
    Broad lets out a roar of frustration after a guided edge from Dhawan finds the boundary at third man. Whoever 'third man' is, is having quite a series. Runs galore
    7/19/2014 12:54:14 PM
  • Over 7 - India 25-0 (Vijay 5, Dhawan 19)
    India have avoided an innings defeat after a couple of threes for both batsmen. A check-drive from Dhawan off Anderson is hauled in just before the rope and Vijay then drives Jimmy for the same outcome in the same region to put India one run ahead. Cook is currently off the field receiving treatment for a blow to the hand. The England skipper is not having a happy time of it at the moment...
    7/19/2014 12:58:50 PM
  • Over 8 - India 25-0 (Vijay 5, Dhawan 19)
    Broad settles on a better line and length to Vijay, who plays out a maiden
    7/19/2014 1:01:29 PM
  • The result of the real tennis match is top secret for now and thankfully Nass is out of his tennis gear...

    7/19/2014 1:03:27 PM
  • Over 9 - India 33-0 (Vijay 5, Dhawan 27)
    An expensive over from Anderson, who is picked off twice by Dhawan through the on-side for a pair of twos. The classical Indian left-hander then ends the over with a boundary, pouncing on some width from Jimmy and cutting to the rope. This pitch is looking very flat and these are worrying times for England with the shine coming off the new ball...
    7/19/2014 1:07:59 PM
  • Over 10 - India 33-0 (Vijay 5, Dhawan 27)
    Ian Bell, deputising for the injured Alastair Cook, makes his first notable decision as Stokes replaces the unimpressive Broad (0-15). The Durham all-rounder starts with a maiden to Vijay and Cook returns to the fray
    7/19/2014 1:12:11 PM
  • Over 11 - India 33-0 (Vijay 5, Dhawan 27)
    Anderson ties Dhawan down this over, bowling round the wicket and attacking the stumps. England desperate for a breakthrough. Just dots to report at the moment
    7/19/2014 1:17:36 PM
  • No thunderstorms imminent just yet it would appear...

    7/19/2014 1:21:09 PM
  • Over 12 - India 35-0 (Vijay 6, Dhawan 27)
    Stokes steams in and almost slips a yorker under Vijay's bat first ball. Worth a try. Vijay gets off strike with a single to square-leg and then a sloppy piece of fielding from Ballance in the slips allows India to scamper a leg-bye
    7/19/2014 1:22:51 PM
  • Over 13 - India 36-0 (Vijay 6, Dhawan 28)
    Anderson, 20 wickets away from Sir Ian Botham in the list of all-time England wicket-takers, continues to test Dhawan with a variety of in and away swingers. The left-hander is looking solid and a single to cover takes him to his highest score in the series
    7/19/2014 1:26:28 PM
  • Pujara ct Prior bld Plunkett 43 [wicket]

    Plunkett strikes! Pujara feels for the ball outside off stump and nicks it straight through to Prior. Big breakthrough for England
    7/19/2014 1:29:59 PM
  • WICKET! Joe Root plucks one out of the air to dismiss Dhawan. India 40/1.

  • Over 14 - India 40-1 (Vijay 7, Pujara 0)
    India are effectively 16-1 after that wicket, a much-needed one for England as Dhawan was just starting to look dangerous. He struck the cut hard but it was in the air and Root held on well. Stokes making things happen yet again... Pujara is the new man in
    7/19/2014 1:32:26 PM
  • Dhawan departs.

    7/19/2014 1:35:04 PM
  • Over 15 - India 40-1 (Vijay 7, Pujara 0)
    Broad is back armed with a short-ball barrage. Vijay has already shown this series that he is more than happy to duck so it's a questionable ploy with the new ball still relatively hard. The India opener sways out a maiden
    7/19/2014 1:36:52 PM
  • Over 16 - India 42-1 (Vijay 7, Pujara 2)
    Pujara made 28 off 117 balls in the first-innings and would be well-advised to bat with a bit more tempo in this knock. I'll leave my batting advice to Pujara right there, he whips a leg-stump half-volley from Stokes to midwicket and a brilliant diving stop from Root saves four. Two added
    7/19/2014 1:41:18 PM
  • Over 17 - India 46-1 (Vijay 7, Pujara 2)
    Really not convinced by this short-ball tactic from Broad, even more so when a bouncer is so high and wide it evades Prior and sails by for four byes! Harsh on Prior. Time for drinks and perhaps England to revise their plans?

  • Over 18 - India 52-1 (Vijay 8, Pujara 6)
    Stokes continues after the refreshments. Pujara drives through the covers for his first boundary in fine style, eased it between the fielders.
    7/19/2014 1:53:07 PM
  • Over 19 - India 56-1 (Vijay 12, Pujara 6)
    Broad beats Vijay outside off-stump with a bit of extra bounce. No need to be playing at that. Vijay collects four later in the over with a leg-glance as Broad gets one to swing towards his pads.
    7/19/2014 1:58:06 PM
  • Plunkett into the attack for the first time.
    7/19/2014 1:59:27 PM
  • 7/19/2014 2:00:52 PM
  • Over 20 - India 60-1 (Vijay 12, Pujara 10)
    Plunkett's second ball is cut late and fine by Pujara for four. Excellent shot, there was not much wrong with the delivery. Pujara content to play out the rest of the over in defensive mode.
    7/19/2014 2:02:54 PM
  • Time for a touch of autograph signing before Straussy begins his next comms stint at 10 past...

    7/19/2014 2:04:16 PM
  • Over 21 - India 64-1 (Vijay 13, Pujara 13)
    Broad is now into his 84th over of the series already. Vijay collects a drop-and-run single to cover point to rotate the strike. Pujara is timing it well today, pushing down the ground for three.
    7/19/2014 2:07:58 PM
  • Over 22 - India 64-1 (Vijay 13, Pujara 13)
    Plunkett is generating some nice shape, swinging it away from the right-handers. His pace is down quite a bit, around 81-82 mph during a maiden to Pujara.
    7/19/2014 2:11:01 PM
  • England try some spin now. Moeen comes on. Will it turn?
    7/19/2014 2:12:29 PM
  • Over 23 - India 65-1 (Vijay 14, Pujara 13)
    Not much turn during a quiet first over from Moeen. Vijay bumps a full toss back down the ground for a single.
    7/19/2014 2:15:04 PM
  • Over 24 - India 65-1 (Vijay 14, Pujara 13)
    Two slips and a gully in place as Plunkett focuses on line-and-length. Vijay happy to leave alone outside off-stump where possible during a maiden.
    7/19/2014 2:18:41 PM
  • England turn to some spin now. Moeen Ali comes on. Will it turn?

  • Over 25 - India 66-1 (Vijay 14, Pujara 14)
    Moeen has a slip and short midwicket, the rest of the field is spread far and wide. Pujara steals a single behind square on the off side from the final delivery
    7/19/2014 2:22:14 PM
  • May the best man win... but who did? We'll show you tmrw with some 'real' good action. #EngvInd

  • Over 26 - India 74-1 (Vijay 14, Pujara 22)
    Plunkett is punished by Pujara for a couple of poor deliveries, both disappearing for four. The first is down the leg side and helped on its way, the second is wide and full outside off-stump and driven the covers.
    7/19/2014 2:25:17 PM
  • Over 27 - India 77-1 (Vijay 16, Pujara 23)
    Both batsmen are happy to use their feet to Moeen. Three singles in the over, all on the leg side.
    7/19/2014 2:28:05 PM
  • Anderson is back on for a pre-tea burst. Probably two overs.
    7/19/2014 2:29:20 PM
  • Over 28 - India 77-1 (Vijay 16, Pujara 23)
    Vijay plays out a maiden from Anderson in defensive fashion. He's scored 16 off 78 balls so far. India lead by 53.
    7/19/2014 2:32:59 PM
  • Over 29 - India 82-1 (Vijay 20, Pujara 24)
    Moeen mixing up his flight to Vijay, who ends the over by coming down the track and lofting for four to wide long-on. That's just his second boundary from 80 balls faced. He'd been eyeing that shot up since Moeen came on.
