England lose four in eventful morning session

England lose four in eventful morning session

It was not certain that Woakes would play this Test. England decided on the second morning to select him over off-spinner Moeen Ali, with Ben Stokes on trial for affray.

According to reports, the team-sheet was leaked online on Thursday, August 9, even as rain washed out the first day's play of the ongoing second Test at Lord's Cricket Ground in London. All the bowlers, be it pacers or spinners, leaked runs to give England a healthy lead of 250.

Watch day four of the second Test between England and India from 10am, Sunday on Sky Sports Cricket.

Jos Buttler (24) got in and got out before he too fell lbw aiming across the line as Shami took a third wicket this innings.

Kohli had single-handedly made the first test at Edgbaston competitive, his 200 runs failing to save India as England took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, but he couldn't repeat his heroics on a green wicket at Lord's.

The Ryanair spokesperson continued: "We will first try to accommodate you on the next available Ryanair flight on the same route". Another customer said she would miss work meetings and a doctor's appointment due to a cancelled flight.

That brought debutant Ollie Pope to the crease and Surrey's talented 20-year-old showed no signs of nerves as he combined with Root to take the score to 77-2.

England had stumbled to 89-4 in reply to India's first- innings 107, but Bairstow played confidently and was unbeaten on 62 at the interval while the returning Woakes (55 not out) notched up his fifth test fifty as the hosts reached 230-5.

Rahane, who did all the hard work to survive 44 deliveries, nicked Anderson's straight delivery to first slip Alastair Cook.

Yorkshire star Bairstow also looked set for triple figures but, just six short of his sixth Test hundred, nicked behind off the bowling of Pandya as India finally found a breakthrough.

Woakes joined Bairstow and, while Shami and Sharma were getting the ball to reverse swing and there was some uneven bounce, the England pair negotiated their way through the tricky spells before beginning to accelerate and bringing up their 100 partnership in the first over of the evening session.
