India will look for a win on the final day of the second Test against England at Lord’s.  England were 105 for the loss of four wickets at the end of the fourth day. The match seemed to be evenly poised until Ravindra Jadeja  played a quickfire innings to take India to a position of strength. India ended up with 342 runs on the board which meant that England had to chase down 319 runs to win the Test. It has to be remembered that the track is playing a few tracks, as a few of the deliveries are keeping low. So, it won’t be easy for either Joe Root or Moeen Ali to do well.

Earlier, Murali Vijay played a splendid innings to help India get out of troubled waters. For England Liam Plunkett bowled well in patches. However, Stuart Broad and James Anderson were a touch below par. In the first innings it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who took six wickets  in the first innings to bowl out the opposition ranks for a score of just over 300.  India made 294 in their first innings. It was Ajinkya Rahane who made a century for India.  Hopefully, the final day’s play will turn into an interesting contest betwene the two young sides that are on a rebuilding path.

India 295 (Ajinkya Rahane 103, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 36; James Anderson 4 for 60, Stuart Broad 2 for 79, Ben Stokes 2 for 40) and 342 (Murali Vijay 95, Cheteshwar Pujara 43, Ravindra Jadeja 68, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 52; Liam Plunkett 3 for 65, Ben Stokes 3 for 51, Moeen Ali 2 for 28) lead England 319 (Gary Ballance 110, Liam Plunkett 55*; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 6 for 82, Ravindra Jadeja 2 for 46) and 105 for 4 (Alastair Cook 22, Garry Ballance 27; Ishant Sharma 2 for 13) by 213 runs.
