A successful morning at Lord’s for India saw the visitors remove England’s opening pair of Alastair Cook and Sam Robson cheaply and the home side stuttered to 51-2 at Lunch.

India were dismissed for 295 having added five to their overnight score.

Sky Bet still rate England as favourites for the match and are presently 10/11 about them to take victory with the Draw rated at 9/4 and India available at 11/4.

Ian Bell and Gary Ballance are currently at the crease and the pair figure prominently in the “most runs” market with the Durham man the 9/4 favourite to top score in the innings.

Joe Root is 100/30 along with Yorkshire team-mate, Ballance, while Moeen Ali is 11/2.
