Opener KL Rahul was dismissed by Mark Wood as India lost their first wicket in the second innings early on Day 4 of the second Test at Lord’s. Wood squared up Rahul, who edged the ball to Jos Buttler to fall for five runs off 30 deliveries. Rohit Sharma (12 runs off 28 balls) was joined in the middle by Cheteshwar Pujara with India placed at 18/1 after 9.2 overs. After a Joe Root masterclass on Day 3, the onus will be on the Indian batsmen to set England a target. Root’s unbeaten 180 helped England post 391 in reply to India’s 364 in the first innings. A collapse late in the day saw England bundle out with a slender lead of 27 runs after they had lost just two wickets in the first two sessions. Root was ably supported by Jonny Bairstow (57) and Rory Burns (49) even as Mohammed Siraj picked up 4 for 94 and Ishant Sharma returned 3 for 69. (LIVE SCORECARD)
