Former England Women‘s cricketer Claire Taylor will ring the bell on the third day of the second Test between England and India at Lord’s.

Taylor, who holds the record for the highest ODI score at Lord’s with 156* against India in 2006, will signal five-minutes until the start of play by ringing the bell. The ritual was carried out by Rahul Dravid and Stephen Fry on the first two days of the Test.

India and England have engaged themselves in an interesting tussle in the second Test at Lord’s. On Day Two, India were bowled out for 295 and in reply, England finished at 219 for six. Gary Ballance was the star with the bat, getting his second Test ton and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took four out of the six English wickets to fall.

India and England had an even contest on the second day of the Lord’s Test.  Resuming from their overnight score of 290 for nine, they managed to score five runs before Mohammad Shami was dismissed by Ben Stokes. England in reply finished at 219 for six at stumps. Gary Ballance shone with the bat as he notched up his second Test ton.

England were looking good at the start of the final session with Moeen Ali and Ballance at the crease. The hosts had recovered from a shaky start to a position of command from where the Indian total appeared to be at an arm’s reach. The visitors however hit back towards the end of the day, with Murali Vijay  picking his maiden Test wicket by trapping Ali leg-before, followed by Kumar removing Ballance.

Kumar was the pick among the Indian bowlers by sending four out of the six English batsmen to be sent back to the pavilion.
