Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
91.4OUTStokes to Shami, out Caught by Cook!! It has taken just 10 balls for England today to dismiss the last batsman. Full and outside off, Shami pushed out tentatively, got the thick outside edge which was gobbled up by Cook on the 2nd attempt, after a little bit of juggle. Stokes finishes the innings. Time for England's batsmen to show up. Shami c Cook b Stokes 19(24) [4s-3]295/10
90.3FOURJ Anderson to Shami, FOUR, that is a right old slog. Close your eyes and swing, that's what Shami does, luckily the inside edge runs away past the leg stump and down to the fine leg fence294/9
89.5FOURBroad to Ishant, FOUR, Broad bends his back and bangs it short, Ishant fends at it, gloves it over the keeper to the fine leg fence290/9
89.2FOURBroad to Ishant, FOUR, back of a length and on the stumps, Ishant makes room, throws his bat at it, the thick outside edge sails over the slip cordon en-route to the third man fence286/9
86.4OUTJ Anderson to Rahane, out Caught&Bowled!! Jimmy plucks out a one-handed grab to get rid of Rahane. He looks skyward again, this time in sheer disappointment. Fullish ball on off, Rahane seeks to drive on the rise, does not get hold of it, feebly chips it back to the bowler, who sticks out his left hand to snag a fine catch. Rahane walks back to a great reception and deservingly so. Rahane c and b J Anderson 103(154) [4s-15 6s-1]275/9
86.1FOURJ Anderson to Rahane, FOUR, Incredible century from Rahane amid tricky conditions. His second three figure score in Test cricket. Jinks eases the helmet off his head, looks skyward and then soaks in the applause from the Indian change room. Back of a length and outside off, Rahane stands tall and punches it wide of cover275/8

105.5OUTRavindra Jadeja to J Anderson, out Caught by Rahane!! Ravindra Jadeja wins the battle with Anderson. On the cricket field that is. What a shot to get out to. Reverse sweep attempted and it lobs to Rahane at first slip. Anderson runs off, while the Indians congratulate Jadeja. End of England - they lead by 24. J Anderson c Rahane b Ravindra Jadeja 19(21) [4s-3]319/10
104.4OTHERBhuvneshwar to Plunkett, 1 run, drop and run to deep backward point, and that's fifty for Plunkett. His maiden one too. Acknowledges the cheers of the Lord's crowd. His team-mates too applaud the effort. Fine effort from the Durham-now-Yorkie lad314/9
104.3FOURBhuvneshwar to Plunkett, FOUR, now the late-cut. Goes back and gets it between the slips and gully. Moves to 49 and punches gloves with Anderson313/9
104.2FOURBhuvneshwar to Plunkett, FOUR, flowing cover drive. On-the-up and beats sweeper cover easily. Bhuvneshwar wears a disappointed look on his face309/9
103.4FOURShami to J Anderson, FOUR, Anderson is batting like a dream. Look at that shot. Slightly short outside off, he crashed that off the back foot as the fielders stood and admired the shot305/9
102.4FOURBhuvneshwar to J Anderson, FOUR, huge cheers at the HQ after England move into the lead. In the air as Anderson played a lofted drive, awkward effort from Binny at mid-off, went to grab it with his left-hand, nowhere near to getting there. Anderson has a big smile on his face298/9

103.1OUTStokes to Bhuvneshwar, out Caught by Bell!! This innings of Bhuvneshwar is worth its weight in gold, gets a tap on the helmet from Ishant and a standing ovation from the crowd. It was nicely bowled, probing line and length, Bhuvneshwar went poking at it and got a thick outside edge, Bell at 2nd slip takes it bending to his right. Bhuvneshwar c Bell b Stokes 52(71) [4s-8]342/10
101.1FOURStokes to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR, What a way to get to his 3rd Fifty of the tour! He's been more consistent than most of India's top order batsmen, goes over mid on and gets enough on it to clear the inner circle, didn't middle it though, a few bounces and it races past the boundary rope342/9
100.2OUTMoeen Ali to Shami, out Caught by Prior!! Moeen Ali does the job for his captain, like he's been doing all this while. Shami went forward pushing at one outside the off stump, only got a faint feather, Prior holds onto a catch finally and they erupt. Shami c Prior b Moeen Ali 0(2)338/9
100FOURStokes to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR, flies over the slip cordon to the vacant third man region. Cook will have to deal with some criticism again for not having a third man, especially at this stage of the game, this one was fuller, Bhuvneshwar went after it and got a thick outside edge enough to take it over the slip cordon338/8
99.1OUTStokes to Ravindra Jadeja, out Caught by Cook!! Jadeja's honeymoon at Lord's ends! He was looking to dance down the track but was surprised by the bouncer, went for the pull as the ball hurried onto him, only managed a top edge. It was the second time Cook had to run backwards, takes it easily running from first slip. Ravindra Jadeja c Cook b Stokes 68(57) [4s-9]334/8
99DROPPEDMoeen Ali to Bhuvneshwar, no run, another dropped chance? Yes! Prior this time, Bhuvneshwar was looking to cut that, gave himself some room too, there was a sound as the ball went past the bat, must have got an edge!334/7

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
88.2OUTRavindra Jadeja to J Anderson, out J Anderson Run Out!! India go 1-0 up in the 5-match series. Where was Anderson going? There was never a run. This was tossed up around off, Anderson knocks it to the off-side, he takes off for a single, Plunkett sends him back, Jadeja runs across, gathers the ball and hits the bulls-eye at the striker's end. The third umpire was not needed as Oxenford makes the decision. Anderson dives but he was well short. J Anderson run out (Ravindra Jadeja) 2(6)223/10
86OUTIshant to Broad, out Caught by Dhoni!! Ishant, Ishant, Ishant! It is all we can hear from the crowd. He scalps his 7th wicket, his career best figures. Another short delivery brings the downfall of a England batsmen. Short and angled into the body, Broad looks to glance, gets a glove on the way to Dhoni, who takes it diving to his right. Umpire Oxenford was quick to raise his finger and give the marching orders. India one wicket away from their second win at the HQ. Broad c Dhoni b Ishant 8(14) [4s-1]216/9
85.4FOURIshant to Broad, FOUR, short delivery aimed at the ribs, Broad fends awkwardly, the ball takes the top-edge and flies over the leg gully fielder for a boundary216/8
83.3FOURIshant to Broad, byes, FOUR, poor effort from Dhoni, slips the bouncer down leg, Broad gets out of the way, Dhoni does not make an effort to get to the ball, he just hangs his gloves out and parries the ball away to the fine leg fence206/8
81.5OUTIshant to J Root, out Caught by Binny!! England falling apart here. This is shocking batting from the Englishmen. They know that the trap is set for the short ball but they are still taking it on. Ishant gets his 4th wicket with the short ball. Root fails to keep this along the ground, picks out the man at deep square leg, Binny keeps calm and takes it comfortably. India inch closer to victory. J Root c Binny b Ishant 66(146) [4s-7]201/8
81.2OUTIshant to Stokes, out Caught by Pujara!! Ishant picks up his 5th wicket. Stokes bags a pair in the Test. He is yet to get off the mark in this Test series. The short delivery has worked once again for India and Ishant. This was not quite short enough to play the pull, but Stokes still goes for it, gets a top-edge, the ball skies towards mid-wicket, Pujara settles under it and takes a good catch. England losing their way here. India truly on top! Stokes c Pujara b Ishant 0(6)201/7
