Catch live score and updates from India vs England 2nd Test Day 4.

Speaking of, forecast of rain could be India's saving grace.

Anderson bowled one at a back of a length outside off and the ball jagged back in to take the inside edge before landing in Bairstow's gloves. England added 39 runs in 37 minutes at the start of day before the declaration.

The 20-year-old Ollie Pope impressed on debut but fell for 28 before captain Joe Root, strangely subdued, was lbw to Shami for 19 with the last ball before lunch.

In the eighth over, Keaton Jennings missed a straight delivery by Mohammed Shami and was trapped lbw for 11.

On the stroke of lunch, the impressive Shami picked up his second wicket with a ball that kept low and cannoned into Root's pads.

England lead 1-0 in the five-match series against the world's top-ranked Test nation.

With Woakes, the first of England's three bowling all-rounders, at the crease alongside Bairstow, India could sense an opportunity to expose the tail.

Having scored 141 runs in the afternoon session to take the lead past 100, England continued to dominant after tea, with Bairstow reaching his half-century and Woakes following suit shortly after.

His innings meant Woakes became just the 10th cricketer after England´s Gubby Allen, Ray Illingworth, Ian Botham, Andrew Flintoff, Broad, Stokes, Australia´s Keith Miller, the West Indies´ Garfield Sobers and India´s Vinoo Mankad to get his name on both the Lord´s honours boards that record all those who have scored a century or taken five or more wickets in an innings during a Test at the ´home of cricket´.

Yorkshire star Bairstow also looked set for triple figures but, just six short of his sixth Test hundred, nicked behind off the bowling of Pandya as India finally found a breakthrough.

Earlier, England declared on 396-7 with Chris Woakes finishing on 137 not out.
