    0.5 through him.. Vijay's gone for a duck. Terrific delivery. The seam's pointing towards fine leg and it pitches full, really full. Vijay is lured into flicking it as he sees the inward curve, but the ball swings away to sneak through into the stumps 0/1
    6.1 outside edge, taken. Anderson's relentless lengths are making Indian batsmen's lives miserable. Rahul strides forward to play at it and gets a healthy nick that settles into Bairstow's gloves 10/2
    8.3 run out.. a run out. Would you believe it? Seems like this may have been Kohli's mistake. And it's the most innocuous delivery to get out to. A straight length ball that Pujara taps to point. They think of a quick single. Kohli is responsive. Takes off full speed. And then stops and turns back and Pujara is left stranded 15/3
    21.4 now he's gone. This time the catch sticks on and Kohli's gone. England gets the big wicket. Poor shot from Kohli. Closes the face, perhaps lured by the inward angle, but the ball swings late to take the leading edge and Buttler at second slip gets down to his right to snaffle it 49/4
    29.4 taken! Cook follows the ball languidly to his right and receives it at knee height. Rahane's played a majority of his deliveries on the back foot today. Hasn't quite been tested outside off. Anderson comes back and gets straight to it. Hoops it away from the corridor, Rahane reaches well in front of his body and it's an ordinary end after a promising start 84/7
    23.3 gone next ball. Beautiful, beautiful bowling. The last one swung away, this one straightens down the corridor and Pandya feels for it, gets an outside edge that dies on Buttler who takes a good low catch this time. England are unrelenting with their lines here 61/5
    24.2 through the gate. India are completely clueless here. It's moving one way and then the other. This one's pushed across and Karthik is instinctively drawn across, but the ball cuts back in a mile and flattens the stumps after ripping past the inside edge. Just how do you play these? 62/6

    34.2 that's gone.. plumb. Ashwin sends this upstairs. Could he have got a bat? Curves in sharply from outside off and beats the inside edge. It's pad first and crashing into leg stump. Off he goes 96/9
    33.6 looks close and given. Trapped plumb in front by an inswinger. Kuldeep reviews but this is gone. Pitches on middle and off and straightens down that channel to hit him dead in front. No bat on the flick and crashing into the inside half of middle stump 96/8

    35.2 gone.. five for Anderson, and 99 wickets for Jimmy Anderson at Lord's. And with that ends with insipid Indian batting performance. Angles in towards off and nips away every-so-subtly to pin Ishant in front as he stays on the backfoot. Where was the impact? No reviews left for India, and replays show the ball would have clipped the outside half of off-stump, so umpire's call 107/10

    8.2 got im! This is an absolute corker from Ishant! Charging in from around the wicket, hitting the deck, squaring the batsman up and snatching the outside edge with just enough movement away off the seam. India are elated. They have an opening into that fragile England middle order now. 32/2
    7.3 plumb in front! But Jennings wants the third umpire's seal on this and has called for DRS. Unless he has nicked it, he's going to have to go. And UltraEdge says he hasn't. So Shami gets the reward for pitching the ball up; pitching it up so much that it nearly becomes a yorker. Jennings plays all around it, barely moving his feet, closing the face of the bat, looking for runs through midwicket when he really should have been using a straight bat. Well, he'll have plenty of time to think about his choices in the dressing room. 28/1
    24.4 keeps low and he's caught in front! Timely strike for India, with lunch looming. Shami finds a way to make the ball scuttle through and Root is nowhere near prepared for it's mischief. One second, he's setting up to punch it into the off side. The next, he's slumped over, having been struck on the pad, right in front of off stump 89/4

    21.2 traps him in front, at least according to umpire Dar! But Pope checks with his captain and then goes for DRS. So we get to see how this good length ball on off stump skids through and has Pope playing around it in a panic to get bat to ball. He's hit on the back pad. Right in front of middle and off. Ball-tracking says it'll hit the stumps and he's off 77/3
    74.4 caught behind and Bairstow falls seven short of a hundred! Expressionless as he leaves the field, but he should really be proud of the effort. England were 80-odd for 4 when he took charge. Now they have a 200-plus lead. Solid effort from a player constantly growing in stature. But he might do well to forget this ball, and the way he threw his bat at it, driving on the up and nicking behind. Great effort by Karthik too: he was moving to his left, with the angle of the ball coming into the right-hander, but then has to change direction and dive full-length to his right. That edge was travelling too. 320/6
    31.1 huge appeal and it's given, even though Buttler's down the pitch again. England have no more reviews, but it probably wouldn't have helped this time either. Shami goes full and straight. The batsman walks across and falls over, playing a flick. He needs to make contact. He doesn't. Now he's back in the hut 131/5

    2.2 got him! The one that slants in. He just finds a way to make you play. This is angled, not swing. Rises off a length. Vijay looks to block on the front foot and gets a thin inside edge. Bairstow has no issues. That's Anderson's 100th wicket at Lord's and 550th in Tests 0/1
    6.1 this looks plumb. KL Rahul nods no as Pujara asks about the review. Anderson gets another with the one that comes in. Rahul's picked up a shuffle to try and negate his tendency to lunge forward outside off. It's hard to make that switch mid-Test. Looks to flick one that's angled in at off and is struck on the knee roll right in front of off 13/2

    26.5 breaches the resistance! A mean, late inswinger from Broad has taken Pujara by surprise and he's responded late. The bat's come down at an angle, but the ball has already caught his half-stride across the stumps and ricocheted onto off stump as he completes his attempted flick. Super, super bowling from Broad. 50/4
    18.6 got him! Taken at third slip. a very, very loose shot. No doubt brought about by the variable bounce on the last two balls. Rahane instinctively onto the front foot this time. But he's also chased a reasonably wide ball. It's shaping away a touch off the surface. It flies at waist height to Jennings' left 35/3
    30.3 another review for caught. This time from Kohli, and he's gone up as soon as Dar has given him. Looks like Ollie Pope at short leg who has lunged forward to take on that's come off his hip. Was there glove before though? Yes there was! It has brushed the knuckle before catching him on the hip. Kohli looked amused when he reviewed, suggesting he might not have felt that at all. Doesn't matter. It's 100% for the umpires. Kohli is gone, fending awkwardly again at big incoming delivery from Broad that was dug in back of a length. 61/5
    42.1 review for lbw. Hardik Pandya caught in front of middle stump. Aleem Dar says no. Woakes has convinced his captain to go for it. It's beaten the inside edge on the angle and hit him on the flap of the pad...and it's hitting leg stump! Woakes gets the breakthrough! The bowling change does it. Different point of delivery, different movement off the pitch. Pandya gets forward to defend but he can't get it right first time. A good review. The first overturned decision. That's the end of their stand. 116/7
    30.4 now Karthik reviews! Three in a row. Karthik is rapped in front of off stump and looks out, plumb. Consults with Pandya and goes for it, but it doesn't look good. Yep, he's gone. Big inswinger again, gets Dinesh Karthik. He's got another screamer and his horror return lengthens. Forward stride coming in late and at an angle. Broad hoops it in a long way and that's hitting middle and off 61/6

    43.4 inside edge onto stumps. Full outswinger outside off. Looking to stab this through cover, but there's a gap between bat and pad. It's all Anderson needs. Smashed into the stumps 121/8
    45.1 this will be out. Yes, given and not reviewed. Full inswinger on off, and he's shaped to deposit this into the stands over deep midwicket. Caught on the shin of the back leg, right in front of off 125/9
    46.6 taken at leg gully! That's the innings win for England. Ishant shuffles across at a length ball angled into him, gets good bat on the glance, but that's exactly the shot England have a fielder there for. Ollie Pope grabs it to complete a memorable debut. 130/10
