London: After Jonny Bairstow and ton-up Chris Woakes have virtually knocked India out of the second Test on Saturday, an inspired fightback or rain washing out the proceedings will be the only options which will see Virat Kohli and his men going into the third Test with 0-1 scoreline instead of 0-2.
While Mohammed Shami managed to raise India’s hopes after the hosts were reduced to 131/5, England will resume the Day 4, with 250-run lead, with four wickets still in hand, here at the Lord’s on Sunday.
There have been 92 per cent chances of rain on Sunday in London. However, the raingods seem to be favouring England in this Test. After a washout on Day 1, Day 2 saw England winning the toss and then James Anderson running through the Indian batting line-up on a cloudy day.
Day 3 was mostly about the sunshine and even as India managed to scalp five wickets before tea, England made the most of the sunshine and put India onto the backfoot, securing 250-run lead.
The match is scheduled to start at 3.30 P.M. IST.
