Pacer Ishant Sharma jolted the England batting with two wickets in two balls as India roared back into the game late in the final session on Day 3 of the second Test at Lord’s. Sharma first removed Moeen Ali for 27 runs and then got the wicket of Sam Curran for a duck on the very next ball. Captain Joe Root continued to frustrate the Indian bowlers as he reached 150 and helped England reduce the deficit. England were placed at 341/7 after 111 overs. In the second session, Ishant got through the defences of Jos Buttler (23 runs off 42 balls) after Root scored his 22nd century and his second in succession in the series. Earlier, Pacer Mohammed Siraj dismissed Jonny Bairstow (57 runs off 107 balls) after Lunch to claim England’s fourth wicket and first of the day’s play. The home team went into Lunch without losing a single wicket and also added 97 runs in 28 overs. Root added 100 runs for the fourth wicket along with Bairstow, who also completed his half-century in only 90 deliveries. (LIVE SCORECARD)
