Lord's, London , Aug 12, 2021
391&120 (51.5)
364&298/8d
India beat England by 151 runs
That's a wrap to the Lord's Test. It was an outstanding game with both teams taking its turn to dominate. India did a bit extra on the final day and that's the reason why they now have 14 points in the ICC World Test Championship. The visitors go top of the table, displacing West Indies who were number one after registering a heart-pumping one-wicket win against Pakistan on Sunday. Right then, that's all we have from this clash. The third Test match will start on 25th August 2021 at Headingley. The first ball will be at 1100 local (1000 GMT) but the build-up will begin much in advance. Cheers!
KL RAHUL IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH! The Indian opener says that it was a proud moment for him and he is happy that his knock helped in a win for India. Adds that they had to give India a good start and his stand with Rohit was very crucial. Mentions that they have been working hard on their skills and even in the first game, the batsmen showed a lot of discipline. Hopes to continue the same in the next three games. On the onfield banter, KL Rahul replies that this is what you expect with two very competitive teams playing and they don't mind a bit of banter. Shares that the bowlers were very pumped after that and wanted to have a go at the English batters.
Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, walks up with a big smile on his face. He says that he is super proud of the whole team for the way they stuck to their plans. Adds that the pitch didn't offer much to the bowlers. Further says that the way they played in the second innings was excellent and praises Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. Shares that they had the belief that they can get England all out in 60 overs. On giving Shami and Bumrah a standing ovation at the Lord's Long Room, Kohli replies that it's necessary to applaud what they did and says that it's tough for them for the way they batted. States that both Shami and Bumrah were charged up and brought them the first two wickets at the start as well. Informs that they wanted to improve on their lower order batting and this was one of the focuses and the batting coach has worked hard. Feels that the belief was missing but now they have the desire to do the job for the team. Tells that those were priceless runs and that helped them to win. Mentions that he was a part of the winning team as a player under MS Dhoni last time at Lord's, but this one to get a result in 60 overs is quite special and especially with someone like Mohammed Siraj who was playing his first Test match here. Also shares that what happened in the field really charged them up and gave them the extra motivation. On getting good crowd support, Kohli smiles and says that it was not the same for the first four days but in the second half on Day 5, the crowd got behind them and these things are very crucial. Mentions that the victory came a day later after Independence Day but it's the best gift they can give to the people back home. Signs off by saying that they are not going to sit on their laurels. Regarding how he decides to take the DRS, Kohli answers that he likes to go with his instincts and he is ready to take the blame. Feels that if you don't take a chance, you will never know.
Joe Root, the English skipper, says that it's unfortunate that they didn't manage to see off 60 overs which is frustrating. Adds that the batters will be coming hard in the next three games. Root takes the blame and says that a lot depended on him and tactically he could have done better as a captain this morning. Mentions that he has to do a lot of learning and make sure to improve and be ready when next time a similar situation arrives. Further says that they didn't get many things wrong and only a few things went slightly wrong. Tells that Mark Wood and Moeen Ali played brilliantly, the former hurt himself but still showed the attitude to compete. Adds that it's good to have Moeen back and nice to see him enjoy his game. States that they are used to playing 5-match series and they have been in this situation before and have found a way to bounce back. Praises the crowd for their attendance and says that it's good to have the crowd back.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
As mentioned earlier, the momentum refused to stay in one corner in this Test match. Day 5 was no different. Once England removed the dangerous Rishabh Pant, they would have felt the Test was theirs for the taking. But, Shami and Bumrah, emerged as unlikely heroes with the bat and helped India to a position from where the fear of losing the Test match went out of their minds. After setting a target of 272 runs in 60 overs, the Indian bowlers turned on the heat and grabbed the series lead.
The penultimate day of this Test match turned out to be too tough for India as they lost three star batters in the morning session. With two out-of-form batsmen in the middle, we all hoped England to remove them quickly but this Test match never went in a straight line. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane formed a century stand to lead the recovery. India started to claw their way back but just when it appeared that they will run away with a handy lead on Day 4, the English bowlers again made a comeback to get rid of both of them and Ravindra Jadeja.
The picture changed on Day 2. England bounced back with renewed energy and once again James Anderson was the centre of attraction. He led the charge with a 5-wicket haul and halted India's dominance. The touring team wasted a golden chance to bat England out of the match after losing 7 wickets for only 88 runs. The 'moving day' started with England's purposeful batting and Joe Root led them from the front. Two able partners in Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali rallied around Joe for vital partnerships and England looked set to out-bat India. But as was the case, momentum wasn't anyone's friend in this Test. The Indian bowlers seized the initiative in the final session of Day 3 and picked five wickets in a hurry to strand Joe Root (180) and restrict England's lead to only 27 runs.
England versus India, clash of the Titans! This Test series saw a massive build-up but the first Test turned out to be a damp squib mainly due to the weather. But if anyone had any doubt about the magnitude of this clash between two powerhouses of cricket, it was put to rest in the Lord's Test. We were a witness to some intense battle and captivating cricket. India got challenging conditions to bat in their first innings but the way Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul weathered the storm was simply amazing. Their opening partnership blunted England's bowling plans and another century stand between Rahul and Virat Kohli made Joe Root regret his defensive decision to bowl first on Day 1.
What a cracking finish to this outstanding Test match! Both teams fought tooth and nail and towards the end, it's India who have prevailed. England will be deeply disappointed with their batting, they had 60 overs to negotiate but the top batsmen flopped miserably. Credit to Jos Buttler though who batted against his natural instinct and consumed 96 balls during his stay. He was involved in a couple of stands with Moeen Ali and Ollie Robinson to keep England in the hunt but India managed to find a way to break those partnerships and register a big win. All their pacers were incredible but Mohammed Siraj impressed the most with his lively spells and knack of picking wickets.
The Indian players are running in celebration! Virat Kohli is pumped up. Siraj has uprooted one stump as a souvenir. What a champion bowler! 8 wickets in the match for him and he stood tall whenever his skipper needed him. India go 1-0 up in the series.

Jasprit Bumrah To Ollie Robinson OUT!
OUT! LBW! The resistance has finally been broken by Jasprit Bumrah and Ollie Robinson is in disbelief! The slower delivery from around the wicket is angled away a bit and Robinson misses his defensive shot. The ball goes on to hit Ollie on the back leg and the Indians appeal in unison. The umpire shakes his head but the review is taken quickly by Virat Kohli. We can see that there is no bat involved and Ball Tracker shows that the ball did pitch in line and it was going on to hit middle and off. The decision is overturned and the Indians can smell victory. Jos Buttler is still out there though.

Mohammed Siraj To Sam Curran OUT!
OUT! Sam Curran bags a King Pair! India are rampant, they are on a roll. Beauty from Mohammed Siraj again. He lands it in the line of the stumps and gets it to move away from the batsman. Curran has not stretched out enough in his stance as he tries to defend. But the ball takes the outside edge and settles into the gloves of Rishabh Pant. A mirror image almost of Moeen's dismissal. India can smell victory now. This is the first-ever King Pair at Lord's, poor Sam. Mohammed Siraj is on a hat-trick...
Who will come in to bat next? Sam Curran is the new man in.

OUT! Here is the breakthrough India were waiting for! Siraj beat the outside edge on multiple occasions in the last over and this time the ball has kissed the outside edge. Outstanding bowling from Siraj. He has hardly gone wicket-less in his spells. Serves it close to middle and off and takes it away from the left-hander, Moeen tries to defend without moving his feet and edges it behind. Virat Kohli, at first slip, makes no mistake as he completes the catch to his right. 21.5 overs left to negotiate for England, India need 4 wickets.

Ravindra Jadeja To Moeen Ali
SHOUT FOR A CAUGHT BEHIND! Jadeja begins with a flatter delivery outside off, gets it to break back in, Moeen is on the back foot as he tries to defend. Misses completely but there is some noise as it goes into the gloves of Pant. The Indians appeal but to no avail. Virat Kohli has a word with his keeper, Ishant, who was at point, says that he heard a noise. The Indian skipper takes the DRS but before anything can happen, the third umpire intervenes and informs that 'no point' as it's a no ball for overstepping. That's a first for me. Hang on, the Ultra Edge detects a spike, so Moeen is very lucky here.
Ravindra Jadeja is back into the attack now. 3-2-2-0 are his figures so far.

Time for a Drinks break. India started from where they left off after Tea and got Joe Root out in the first over after the break. Since then, the Indian bowlers have probed and probed but Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali have held their own. Apart from the dropped catch of Buttler by the Indian skipper, the English batsmen haven't given away many chances. It is poised nicely at the moment, with everyone on the edge of their seats. 26 overs, 5 wickets - that's the equation.

OUT! CAUGHT AT SLIPS! A huge blow to England, their skipper is dismissed in the first over after Tea. Root is looking down in disappointment. Is this the final nail in the coffin? Bumrah delivers for his team yet again. Hurls across a good length delivery outside off from wide of the crease, holding its line, Root is on the back foot and has a gentle poke inside the line. It takes the outside edge and goes to Virat Kohli at first slip. The Indian skipper is alert and takes the catch safely. The Indian players know the value of this wicket and the celebration from them is once again massive. Root had edged quite a few deliveries in the first innings as well but then they were landing short of the slip fielders. Not this time.

We're back, folks! After four days of exciting Test cricket, we are down to the last session. Only two results are possible now and India would be gunning for a win. 6 wickets more for a series lead. Can Joe Root guide his team to safety? Let's find out. Jos Buttler has joined his skipper and it will be interesting to find his approach. It's all about survival now. Jasprit Bumrah to kick off proceedings. All the lights are on at the moment. Here we go...
... DAY 5, FINAL SESSION ...
With Jonny Bairstow removed at the stroke of Tea, England are in a big spot of bother. They have 38 overs to negotiate with 6 wickets left in the kitty. Needless to say, Joe Root will be the key and they won't mind some help from the heavens. There was a mild drizzle and light could become an issue as the evening progresses. Do join us at 3 pm GMT (4 pm local) for all the action from the last session of the Lord's Test.
What a lively finish to the afternoon session, a fitting end! India declared after batting for just 9 balls and then came out all guns blazing with the ball. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami combined to send the English openers back to the pavilion in no time. After that, it was a display of some extraordinary seam bowling. Haseeb Hameed got an early life in his innings and batted for around an hour with his skipper Joe Root in an 83-ball stand.

Ishant Sharma To Jonny Bairstow OUT!
OUT! LBW! Lightning has struck on the last ball before Tea. Ishant Sharma and India are elated as the decision is overturned. Length ball, around off and nipping back in sharply. Bairstow looks to block but the ball goes through the gate and raps him on the back pad. There is a huge appeal from the Indians but the umpire shakes his head. Height could be an issue here. Virat Kohli does take the review at the last moment after having a word with his boys. Ultra Edge shows no involvement of the bat and Ball Tracker then shows three reds. A huge roar can be heard from the Indian crowd as this one was crashing into the middle stump. Kohli is screaming in joy. Joe Root is one more partner short as Jonny Bairstow has to depart as well.
DRS time! Huge shout for an lbw against Jonny Bairstow. Not given. Looks too high. Virat Kohli takes the DRS after consulting his players. No bat involved and the Ball Tracker shows that it's crashing into the stumps. What a review!

Mohammed Shami To Joe Root
FIVE RUNS! Shami strays down leg again and once again the ball just swings miles after going past the batsman. Root leaves it alone and Pant dives a long way but still gets beaten as the ball races into the fence. No ball for overstepping has been called as well. So everything was wrong with this delivery.
Mohammed Shami is back into the attack minutes before Tea. 1/3 in his 4 overs so far. There's a leg gully in place.

Ishant Sharma To Jonny Bairstow
FOUR LEG BYES! Extra bounce and vicious movement. Ishan digs it in short around off, Jonny Bairstow is taken by surprise as he tries to duck. It brushes something, maybe the shoulder or the helmet of the batsman, before looping behind the keeper for a boundary.
Jonny Bairstow is the new batsman.
The finger has gone up after the lbw appeal against Haseeb Hameed. He takes the DRS immediately. Has he edged it? Nopes. No bat involved. The Ball Tracker shows that it's clipping the top of the leg stump. Umpire's call.

Ishant Sharma To Haseeb Hameed OUT!
OUT! LBW! That ball came back in sharply! Ishant Sharma has made an immediate impact for India as he breaks a very important partnership. Haseeb Hameed did all the hard work but just could not do anything about this one. The ball pitches on a good length around off and nips back in venomously. Hameed looks to block but the ball goes through the gate and raps him on the pads. Huge appeal and the finger is raised. Haseeb Hameed takes the review straightaway, maybe he thought that he got some bat. The replays roll in, nothing on the Ultra Edge and the Ball Tracker shows that it's clipping the top of the leg stump. Umpire's call and England lose their third wicket.
