As it happened: England vs India, 2nd Test, Day 5 at Lord's

(For ball-by-ball commentary scroll down to the bottom of the page).

Day 4 round-up: The second Test is headed for a nail-biting finish with England needing 214 runs with six wickets in hand on a tricky fifth-day track as India rode on Ravindra Jadeja's brilliant counter-attack to set a competitive target of 319.

Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Sam Robson in the seventh over to give India an early breakthrough after late efforts from India's lower order. England then lost three wickets in the space of 14 deliveries with the addition of just two runs to slip from a comfortable 70 for 1 to 72 for 4.

Ishant Sharma dismissed Ian Bell (1) and Alastair Cook (22) in quick succession to put India in command after Mohammad Shami got rid of Gary Ballance to break the 58-run partnership between him and Alastair Cook.
