21 July-2014, India Today: Fast bowler Ishant Sharma scalped seven crucial wickets to put India on the course of victory in the second Test match of the series.
If India wins this game, it will be their second Test win at Lord’s after a period of 28 years. At the same venue, India registered their lone win back in 1986.
Resuming at their overnight score of 105-4, England were 202-8, requiring another 117 runs to overhaul India’s target of 319. India needs two more wickets, with more than one session of play left in the game.
At Lord’s, a team has successfully chased a target beyond 319 only once when West Indies scored 344-1 against England to win a Test match in 1984.
