IND vs ENG Live Score: KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are set to open for India in the second innings.© AFP

After a Joe Root masterclass on Day 3, the onus will be on the Indian batsmen to set England a target as the Lord’s Test moves into the fourth day. Root’s unbeaten 180 helped England post 391 in reply to India’s 364 in the first innings. A collapse late in the day saw England bundle out with a slender lead of 27 runs after they had lost just two wickets in the first two sessions. Root was ably supported by Jonny Bairstow (57) and Rory Burns (49) even as Mohammed Siraj picked up 4 for 94 and Ishant Sharma returned 3 for 69. While conditions have remained good for batting throughout this Test, England’s new-ball attack led by James Anderson could pose quite a few problems for the visitors even though their openers have stood the test of time in the series so far. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will aim for yet another solid start at the top of the order. (LIVE SCORECARD)
