England were on the cusp of regaining control of the fourth Test against India at Old Trafford when rain forced an early close to Friday’s on Day Two. Catch the Live Scorecard of the match here.

England were 237 for six in reply to India’s 152 all out, a lead of 85 runs. Joe Root was 48 not out and Jos Buttler 22 not out, with their unbroken seventh-wicket partnership so far worth 67 runs. Catch the Live Blog of the match here.

What became heavy rain forced the players from the field at 2:15pm local time. Although the sun later broke through the clouds and and groundstaff appeared to get most of the outfield into a playable state, two large puddles on the boundary near the players’ dressing rooms caused the officials concern.

After several inspections, umpires Rod Tucker and Marais Erasmus were still not satisfied with the condition of those areas and play was abandoned for the day at 5:39pm. It was a decision greeted by understandable jeers from spectators who had waited patiently for several hours in the hope of seeing the match re-start.

England resumed on 113 for three after bowling out India — who won the toss — for just 152 before tea on Thursday, with fast-medium bowler Stuart Broad taking six for 25. However, India’s total in an innings featuring a Test record-equalling six ducks represented something of a recovery after they had been eight for four inside six overs and the tourists were indebted to a battling 71 from captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
