England pacer Ollie Robinson got the crucial wickets of Rishabh Pant and Ishant Sharma early on the fifth and final day of the second Test at Lord’s. Robinson dismissed Pant first, who came out firing on all cylinders as he edged the ball to keeper Jos Buttler while Ishant was also later removed LBW. Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah were at the crease with India placed on 209/8 after 89.3 overs and leading by 182 runs. England decided to take the new ball in the 83rd over yesterday but bad light forced the umpires to call off the day’s play. On Sunday, India were under pressure early on as Mark Wood and Sam Curran picked up early wickets to leave the visitors tottering at 55 for three. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara put on a 100-run stand for the fourth wicket to bail India out of trouble. (LIVE SCORECARD)
