England ace Chris Woakes boasts absurdly low Test average at Lord's

For much of the day, thanks again to the weather, it looked as though the fans were going to be restricted to just over eight overs of cricket but then the weather cleared in the evening and India must have wished the rain had stuck around.

Having been bowled out for 107 on day two, India will have harboured hopes of at least limiting England's lead when they reduced the hosts to 89-4 at lunch.

India, who lost the first Test at Edgbaston by 31 runs, face a huge task to save the match but could have weather on their side with rain predicted to hit London on Sunday.

And on the second day.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day.

Pujara was left stranded, albeit he tried making it to the non-striker's end, only to find that Kohli had backtracked and made the crease safely.

A reticent Kohli originally ran and then, with his partner nearly at the other end, sent him back.

After a rain delay, Cheteshwar Pujara was run out by debutant Ollie Pope and a downpour followed immediately.

Nonetheless Mourinho was pleased with his team's display, singling out Pogba and Shaw for particular praise, and the overall spirit.

By contrast, England´s innings commenced under sunny blue skies that promised to make life easier for the batsmen. It was worth the wait, though, as Root's men took control of this stop-start Test.

Sam Curran, the 20-year-old all-rounder who was man of the match at Edgbaston, then came to the party to bowl Dinesh Karthik with a handsome in-swinger.

Sam Curran and Stuart Broad chipped in with a wicket each, while Anderson dismissed Ajinkya Rahane (18) and scoreless duo Kuldeep Yadav and Ishant Sharma to end with figures of 5-20.

As I was saying on BBC Radio 5 live on Friday, United have a very strong squad. Dion Dublin was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan . That's the way I think football is going.
