England bowl out India in their second innings for 342, leaving them 319 runs adrift of victory in the second Test.

India have set England a victory target of 319 runs in the second Test match between the two nations at Lord's this afternoon.

The tourists returned after the lunch break on 267-7, but despite being into their tail, they were still able to add 52 runs before they were dismissed.

First to fall after the resumption was Ravindra Jadeja, who was caught by England captain Alastair Cook off the bowling of Ben Stokes for 68. He was then followed in the next over by Mohammed Shami as Moeen Ali claimed his second wicket of the Indian innings.

Their time at the crease was brought to an end in the 103rd over when Bhuvneshwar Kumar, on 52, was caught in the slips by Ian Bell from another Stokes delivery.

It meant that India had posted a total of 342, which has left them 318 runs ahead of their hosts.
