    My word. Who is this imposter? A second drive from Alastair Cook and this one goes for down to the pavilion for four! Lord’s hums in approval.

  2. Eng 21-0

    Fire away, people. I’m struggling I must admit.

    Not much to report from Shami’s latest over so I’ll give you the most Alastair Cook shot you’ll ever see.

    It’s a gentle start, Cook has got to 13 and looked comfortable. I don’t think it is going to spin but they are bound to put Ashwin on soon.

  5. Bhanuprakash: This is gonna be a long day for the Indian players…!!

  6. Eng 20-0

    Cook 13, Jennings 7

    Ishant Sharma has those bandage things over both elbows, like what Ben Stokes often wears. The Indian has his shirt sleeve scrunched up on his right shoulder and already looks a little disheveled. He gets a couple to go away in this over but they’re too wide to trouble Cook. Back to normality for England’s farming opener. A maiden.

    Shami has got the ball full several times and they have been able to drive it because it hasn’t swung.

  8. I’m going to restrain from googling ‘England’s highest partnerships since Andrew Strauss retired’ because every time I have in the past a wicket seems to fall. This has been solid though. Cook’s strike-rate is 162.50.

  9. Eng 17-0

    Duanne Olivier is as close as I can get.

    Cook is flying. A crunch of a punch through the covers for three now.

    No-one known as Oliver as far as I can find.

    But is he the first Oliver?

  12. How’s stat?!

    There have been three Popes to play Test cricket.

  13. Eng 14-0

    Cook 9, Jennings 5

    Now that will give India a lift. Ishant starts his second over by getting one to go away off the pitch and beat Keaton Jennings.

    But that will make the fielder’s shoulders slump. Another rubbish delivery from Ishant on leg stump and Cook flicks down the hill for four. Cook has nine from five balls! Madness.

  14. Daniel Johnson: Forecast not great for the rest of the match. Bat all day today, try and get a lead of 200, declare and make India chase the match.

    If nothing happens within about four or five overs they will put Ashwin on.

  16. Eng 9-0

    Don’t bowl there to Alastair Cook! Mohammed Shami is the latest Indian bowler to drift onto the England opener’s legs and Cook flicks it to the square-leg boundary. There has been nothing to get India excited yet. No movement, no deliveries beating the bat.

    I won’t be surprised if we see Ashwin fairly early on after his success against Alastair Cook in the last match. Conditions are a lot different today but we will see if there is anything left in the pitch for the bowlers.

    What Ishant Sharma tries to do is essentially be an inswing bowler, which is an awayswinger to the left-handers. If he gets it wrong down the leg side they can clip it away, or if it starts too wide of off stump they can just watch it.

  19. There’s no significant swing for Ishant Sharma. Perhaps it could come when the ball gets a little older. India don’t have many runs to play with here. Virat Kohli will be hoping for more from his bowlers. Another leg-side delivery sees Keaton Jennings clip three off the final ball.
