First up, a weather update from Lord’s:

Hello and Good Afternoon! Welcome to our live coverage of India’s tour of England which has reached a pivotal moment in the second Test. England are in the lead by 250 runs with four wickets in hand. There are chances of rain and England’s seamers are oozing confidence. India’s batsmen, on the other hand, didn’t make a strong account of themselves under overcast conditions. 

Allrounder Chris Woakes struck his first Test century to guide England to 357-6 and a commanding 250-run lead over top-ranked India at stumps on Day 3 of the second Test at Lord’s on Saturday. Having come together shortly after lunch with England struggling at 131-5, Woakes (120 not out) and Jonny Bairstow (93) shared a match-changing stand of 189. The partnership has given England a good chance of moving into a 2-0 lead over India in the five-match series. The forecast of further rain over the final two days of the match appears to offer India’s best chance of avoiding defeat. England bowled India all out for 107 in its first innings on a rain-interrupted second day. That followed a first-day washout in London. (Source: AP)
