4.2 to PJ Moor, a loud, confident appeal for lbw and given. Full around off and nipping in to beat the flick, Moor's head was falling over. The ball hits him on the front pad and would have gone on to hit middle and leg stump. Moor doesn't even consider reviewing it. 15/1
6.1 to A Balbirnie, excellent catch by Crawley at second slip. Was full outside off and moving away. Balbirnie hangs his bat out, gets an outside edge and Crawley does well to dive low to his left and grabs it with both hands. 19/2
6.3 to HT Tector, taken at leg slip. Walks at the bowler, finds one on the body and cannot help flicking it. And fails to keep it down. The ball goes straight to Pott and Broad has figures of 3 for 8 in 3.3 overs. 19/3
30.4 to JA McCollum, Broad gets his fourth. A length ball in the channel, McCollum looks to defend but ends up getting an outside edge to Root at first slip. A straightforward catch. It did pop out briefly but Root was quick to recover. 98/5
53.5 to MR Adair, a five-for for Broad - his third at Lord's, the previous one came ten years ago. An inswinger pitching outside off and nipping back to beat the on-the-up drive. Sneaked through the gap between bat and pad to hit the top of off. 169/8
43.3 to AR McBrine, nicked off this time! Angling in from around the wicket, then nipping away just a fraction off the seam to take the outside edge as McBrine looks to drive through extra cover. Bairstow snaffles a routine chance and Potts celebrates his first Test wicket since August. 142/7
56.2 to F Hand, a neat take by Bairstow behind the stumps and Ireland's innings to come an end. A length ball that nipped back in to take the inside edge as the batter looked to push at it. Bairstow tumbles to his left to pouch it with both hands. 172/10
21.3 to PR Stirling, gloved behind! Stirling falls on the sweep. A bit of extra bounce for Leach as Stirling gets down and across, and the ball balloons up off his glove. Bairstow settles underneath it and Stirling marches off to the pavilion without reviewing.. 64/4
35.1 to LJ Tucker, down the track and looks to sweep but misses and gets hit on the front pad. And given lbw. Tucker wants to review it. It pitched around off and hit him in front of middle and off. And the ball-tracking shows it would just clipped the off bail. Umpire's call there, and Tucker will have to walk back. 104/6
55.3 to C Campher, Bowled 'im. Campher comes down the track but is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Still, he heaves across and misses it completely, and the ball goes on to hit the stumps. 172/9

Fall of wickets: 1-109 (Zak Crawley, 16.3 ov), 2-361 (Ben Duckett, 59.5 ov), 3-507 (Joe Root, 80.3 ov), 4-524 (Ollie Pope, 82.4 ov) • DRS
59.5 to BM Duckett, the replacement ball has done the trick. A length ball angling in. Duckett goes for the cut but ends up getting a thick outside edge onto his off stump. A standing ovation from the crowd as he walks back for 182, off just 178. 361/2
16.3 to Z Crawley, chipped back, and Hand gobbles it at the second attempt for his maiden Test wicket! Nips in from just full of a good length, and Crawley pushes it back to the bowler with a straight drive. Hand snatches at the first opportunity, but the ball bobbles up off his chest and he grabs it with his right hand at the second attempt. He then throws it up and roars with a combination of delight and frustration... Ireland are on the board!. 109/1
80.3 to JE Root, bowled 'im! Root comes down the track but isn't anywhere close to the pitch of the ball, allowing it to turn and sneak through between the bat and pad, and clatter into the stumps. Kept a touch low as well. 507/3
82.4 to OJ Pope, six and out. Skips out of his crease once again but McBrine has bowled this wide outside off. Pope misses and Tucker does the rest. 524/4

Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Peter Moor, 6.1 ov), 2-18 (Andy Balbirnie, 6.6 ov), 2-25* (James McCollum, retired hurt), 3-63 (Paul Stirling, 16.3 ov), 4-126 (Lorcan Tucker, 33.2 ov), 5-162 (Harry Tector, 42.6 ov), 6-162 (Curtis Campher, 43.3 ov), 7-325 (Mark Adair, 70.6 ov), 8-340 (Fionn Hand, 79.1 ov), 9-362 (Graham Hume, 86.2 ov) • DRS
86.2 to GI Hume, bowled 'im! Broad nips one away to hit off stump and... that's it! McBrine is heading for the dressing rooms, too. Hume is beaten past the outside edge, and England will need 11 to win here. 362/9
70.6 to MR Adair, banged in short... has Adair feathered behind? He has! He's been brilliant on the upper-cut throughout this innings but misses out this time. Cross-seamer, back of a length. Adair was shaping to guide this up and over but could only get a little scratch on it, tickling through to Bairstow. He trudges off to a loud ovation from the crowd, and from his team-mates on the balcony. 325/7
6.1 to PJ Moor, and he picks up his maiden Test wicket. Was a length ball pitching outside off and angling in. Kept low as well to hit Moor just under the knee roll as he looked to defend. An easy decision for the umpire but Moor wants to review it. No inside edge and the ball-tracking shows it would have gone on to hit the middle stumps three-fourth of the way up. 16/1
6.6 to A Balbirnie, caught-behind. A length ball in the channel. Balbirnie was looking to cuts it fine but only manages an outside edge. Bairstow does the rest. 18/2
16.3 to PR Stirling, Bairstow and Tongue appeal for the strangle... not given. Stokes says he hasn't heard anything, but is convinced to review. Banged in short, Stirling flapped at the pull... did this brush his glove on the way through? There's a tickle on Ultra-Edge and Stirling will have to go.. 63/3
42.6 to HT Tector, slapped straight to point! Tector is distraught. Perhaps the moment caught up with him. Short and wide from Tongue, a bit of a long-hop, and Tector threw his hands at a back-cut but without much control. He made a good connection, but only managed to spank it straight to Brook at backward point. He stands there looking disconsolate before dragging himself off to the Pavilion. 162/5
79.1 to F Hand, Tongue has five on debut! Length ball in the channel outside off stump, and Hand has a big flash at it, looking to go through mid-off. A thick outside edge flies to second slip, where Crawley takes a sharp chance tumbling to his right, and Lord's stands to applaud Josh Tongue. He holds the ball aloft and waves it around, taking in the ovation. 340/8
33.2 to LJ Tucker, dragged on to his stumps! Tucker undoes the hard work by exposing his wicket as he looks to sweep, the ball takes the glove and spins back into the woodwork. Was he spooked by Bairstow effectively challenging him to go over the top? The ball was leg side, maybe a touch full to sweep. Leach into the action straight away, providing the breakthrough once again. 126/4
43.3 to C Campher, swept to short fine leg! Ireland are unravelling after a bright first hour. Tossed up outside leg stump, Campher got down to sweep and picked out Stokes on the 45... who looks in some discomfort as he completes the catch. He hobbles into England's huddle and is clearly still not right.. 162/6
