India’s hopes of saving the second Test look more and more forlorn as they slumped to 61 for six in the second innings chasing 289 just to make England bat again.

The chief destroyers for England were Stuart Broad who has taken four wickets for just 16 and James Anderson, who followed his five for in the first innings with two wickets – the first being his 100th at Lord’s.

India’s only hope rested in the hands of their captain Virat Kohli who came in at No5 after battling with a back injury.

He reached 17 before Broad had him snapped up by Ollie Pope at short leg. The hapless Dinesh Karthik then went LBW first ball.

James Anderson brought up his 100th Test wicket at Lord’s as England struck twice quickly in India’s second innings on the fourth day of the second Test.

After batting on for just forty minutes this morning, England captain Joe Root finally declared at 397 for seven, a lead of 289, at the fall of Sam Curran’s wicket for 40, caught by Mohammed Shami in the deep off Hardik Pandya.

Century maker Chris Woakes was left unbeaten on 137, more than double his previous highest Test score.

India’s innings then started as disastrously as the first as Anderson sent Murali Vijay back to the pavilion for a duck, his 100th Test wicket at the Home of Cricket, then KL Rahul followed soon after to have the tourists reeling at 13 for two.

The only thing that might save India is the rain, which arrived shortly before lunch with the tourists 17 for two.
