India vs England First Test at Lord's

IND v ENG 1st Test, Lord's, Day 5 : Dhoni and Bad weather saves India

Bad light and then rain ensured the first Test between England and India at Lord's ended in a draw with the tourists closing on 282-9. It left England frustrated as they failed to win a match they had dominated for lengthy spells.
Dhoni, unbeaten on 76, and last man Sreesanth (4 not out) were still at the crease when the weather intervened. Reported Earlier: England looked set to clinch the opening Test at Lords on Monday as they needed just five more Indian wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the three match npower series.
The Indians suffered two early blows on the final morning losing overnight batsman Dinesh Karthick (60) and Sourav Ganguly (40) with the first 30 minutes. Ryan Sidebottom trapped Sourav Ganguly lbw and James Anderson had Dinesh Karthik caught at slip to leave India reeling on 145-5, chasing 380.
With only VVS Laxman and Mahendra Dhoni remaining among the recognised batsmen, India might be hard pressed to bat out the remaining sessions. The only hope being rain saving Indias day showers have been forecast but late in the day.
First Test, Lords, day five : England 298 & 282 drew with India 201 & 282-9

IND v ENG 1st Test, Lord's, Day 4 : Pietersen ton puts England on top

India, dismissed for a meagre 201 in their first innings, were 137 for three at the close, needing a further 243 runs to reach their target of 380 after Pietersen had scored 134. Opener Dinesh Karthik was 56 not out and former captain Sourav Ganguly, dropped on 12, was 36 not out with their stand currently worth 52 after they came together at 84 for three.
If India win they would achieve the fourth highest fourth innings Test victory total in history and break the equivalent Lord's record of 344 for one set by the West Indies in 1984. Earlier Kevin Pietersen burst back into form with his ninth century, his first Test hundred against India, while RP Singh's 5 for 59 kept the rest of the English team in check on the fourth day at Lord's. England who started the day at 77/2 were all out for 282 just before tea.
Paul Collingwood's miserable Test continued as he made just four before he spooned a bouncer from Singh straight to VVS Laxman.
First Test, Lords, day four : England 298 & 282 v India 201 & 137/3

IND v ENG 1st Test, Lord's, Day 3 : England skittle India to blow Test open

The first Test between England and India looks set for an engaging conclusion after the tourists' first innings finished at 201 all out just before lunch on the third day. Anderson claimed a five-wicket haul at a cost of just 42 runs.
At stumps, England lead by 174 runs with 8 wickets remaining.
First Test, Lords, day three (close): England 298 & 77/2 v India 201

IND v ENG 1st Test, Lord's, Day 2 : India 145 for 4 at stumps on day 2

England hit back after a collapse to restrict India to 145-4 at close of play on the second day of the Lords Test on Friday.
The Englishmen were disciplined in their bowling, when they themselves lost 6-26 to be all out for 298 after the entire morning was lost to rain. In the late afternoon session, James Anderston took the key wickets of Rahul Dravid (2) and Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site (37) to peg back the Indians.
Tendulkar, however,went past Australian Steve Waugh in becoming the third highest run-scorer in Tests.
Left arm speedster Ryan Sidebottom got Dinesh Karthik and Chris Tremlett caught and bowled opener Wasim Jaffer (58) for his first Test wicket. Tendulkar, who was aiming to get his first Lords hundred looked good but fell leg before to Anderson.
First Test, Lords, day two (close): England 298 v India 145-4

IND v ENG 1st Test, Lord's, Day 1 : India hit back after English lapse

Andrew Strauss narrowly failed to score his first test century in almost a year on the first day of the first cricket test against India at Lord's where England reached 268 for four at the close.
After three late stoppages for bad light, play finally ended almost an hour after the scheduled close. England suffered from the interruptions and lost Michael Vaughan and Paul Collingwood after the second break.
They had been 218 for one after tea, having lost Alastair Cook for 36 before lunch. Strauss made 96 for his highest test score since his 116 against Pakistan last August and captain Vaughan hit 79. Kevin Pietersen was on 34 with night-watchman Ryan Sidebottom, five.
India are seeking their first series win in England for 21 years, while Vaughan's side are looking to protect an impressive home record in which they have not lost a series on home soil since 2001.
First Test, Lords, day one (close): England 268-4 v India

IND v ENG 1st Test, Lord's : India target rare series win in England

India will launch their grueling three-match cricket Test series against England at the historic Lord's on Thursday, heavily relying on their famed batsmen to provide the inspiration in their quest for a rare series win.
It will probably be the last English summer for the famous batting quintet - captain Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman - and the four stalwarts would be keen to make an impression in what promises to be thrilling series. While the Indian batting appears to be strong on paper, it is the lack of experience in the bowling department which would make it necessary for the bastmen to deliver the goods against the home team.
The Indians have had enough time to acclimatise to the conditions having played a series in Ireland and two warm-up games in England. Most of the batsmen have got one or two big knocks under their belt and it is now a matter of carrying their form into the series. Although the visitors are yet to finalise the composition for the first game, it is more or less certain that they will go in with seven batsmen and four specialist bowlers a formula which has served them well on overseas tours for quite some time.
Wasim Jaffer and Dinesh Kaarthick are like to open the innings while the middle order comprising Dravid, Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman has plenty of experience to tackle the English attack which would badly miss the services of Andrew Flintoff and Steve Harmison. England (team from): Andrew Strauss, Alastair Cook, Michael Vaughan (Captain), Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Ian Bell, Matt Prior (Wicket Keeper), Ryan Sidebottom, Matthew Hoggard, Monty Panesar, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Tremlett
India (team from): Rahul Dravid (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik, Gautam Gambhir, Sourav Ganguly, Venkatsai Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Wicket Keeper), Zaheer Khan, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Rudra Pratap Singh, Ishant Sharma, Ranadeb Bose, Anil Kumble, Ramesh Powar
