Blue blue sky over Lords.

Bat once , bat big , bat long.

Except that of the next 4 days, tomorrow looks by far the best.

Looks like there will be quite a few more interruptions, be surprised if it's not a draw (which given our recent form at Lord's is a bonus).

Both sides only need a session to collapse and lose a test match as was shown at Brum.

Result still on the cards I'd say.

10.32am Toss time. Joe Root has won the toss and England are bowling first. Woakes replaces Ben Stokes for England, and Cheteshwar Pujara and Kuldeep Yadav come in for Shikhar Dhawan and Umesh Yadav

Pitch looking greenish but I've seen plenty of these at Lord's recently that have actually played really well for the batters. But the weather has been bobbins lately so I wouldn't hazard a guess at how it'll play.

Only two seamers for India at a damp and overcast Lords. Very odd.

With the match reduced to 4 days , the f/o rule is now 150 behind.

Could be a factor if India score 300..

Batsmen need to step up - Malan paid the price for delegating run scoring to the tail once too often.

Cook next in the crosshairs I'd expect.

As it was in 2001, the last time Lord's lost a whole day. As I recall, Pakistan weren't fully aware of the rule and followed on 188 behind.

Truly beautiful delivery. It would have helped if Vijay wasn't trying to work to leg although to be fair the ball was originally probably headed to middle and leg if it didn't swing so obviously.

Sound bowling first. More rain on route?

I would have opened with woakes rather than broad. This is perfect for him.

Yeah, think this is one of the rare days that I would’ve given Woakes or Curran the new Ball.

Think Stokes would’ve been a handful.

They won the next test at OT thanks to some dodgy lbws (no balls) from Shep I think
