will India win (2nd Investec Test) at Lords ... Sir Jadeja to the fore !!!

At the time of posting this, England require another 248 with 8 wickets at hand … tantalising poised or inching favourably towards India ……….. optimistic Indian fan is most likely to dream of a fascinating win at Lords…

They said winning the toss is a huge advantage – England managed a slender lead – and at some point of time were at driving seat … Murali Vijay battled with great responsibility and a late assault by unlikely Jadeja and his partnership with reliable Bhuvanesh Kumar ended up India setting  England a daunting 319 for victory in the second Investec Test at Lord's. 

Ravindra Jadeja is in the thick after that charge against James Anderson – but today he made runs – his first 50 in 10th Test – a good innings of 68 off 57 balls.  When England opened their innings their 2nd innings – Binny seemingly is not in the thick of things – Jadeja’s spin is… he did get rid of Robson, with his first ball…  – has now bowled 10 – most by Indian bowler while Bhuvi has bowled 6 – Ishant on his 8th.  Earlier Vijay got tantalising close to a Lord’s century but missed it by 5 runs.   Binny was out for nought to a Moeen’s spin ! Bhuvneshwar was dropped by Joe Root at fourth slip early in his innings – commentators stated that he was standing too close ………. And when Jadeja bowled, Dhoni was seen standing quite a few yards behind !!

Will India win >???............Ian Bell is out to Sharma – making it 71/3… and as I prepare to post this …. Alastair Cook too out to Sharma .. 72/4;  Vijay bowled 3 – Binny yet to..

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.
