England have started off decently on Day Five as they are in pursuit of 319 against India at Lord’s. They came into this day being 105 for four and now Joe Root and Moeen Ali have been batting and battling the conditions and the bowlers. India have persisted with Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja, who are now bowling very well.

Moeen has played a couple of good shots through the covers and has picked a few runs. On the other hand, Root has had a few nervous moments, as he has played and missed a few. Plus, Root had edged one, but it fell way short of Shikhar Dhawan at first slip. India have to ensure their slips are in the right place. It has been overcast since morning here.
