England’s Sam Curran got the all-important breakthrough of Virat Kohli as Lunch was taken on Day 4 of the second Test at Lord’s. Curran followed an in-swinger with a ball that seamed away after pitching as Kohli edged to Buttler to fall for 20 runs off 31 deliveries. Earlier, opener Rohit Sharma was caught by Moeen Ali off the bowling of Mark Wood, who claimed his second wicket of the morning. Rohit, who hit a six earlier in the over, tried to repeat his shot but couldn’t time the ball and fell for 21 runs off 36 balls. Wood squared up KL Rahul earlier, who edged the ball to Jos Buttler to fall for five runs off 30 deliveries. Ajinkya Rahane joined Cheteshwar Pujara in the middle with India placed at 56/3 after 25 overs. Joe 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)
