Kumar leads the Indians off, only the third Indian to take a six-wicket haul at Lord's, a fabulous effort and has contributed to a decent bowling effort from the tourists, England would have been hoping for a better effort but India have battled back well yesterday evening and today. Just a slender deficit for India who now have a tricky few overs before lunch. How will they cope in the third innings of this match?
