India remove England openers before lunch

England lose the wickets of Alastair Cook and Sam Robson before reaching 51-2 lunch on day two of the second Test match with India at Lord's.

England opener Alastair Cook has continued his dismal run of form after being removed for 10 before lunch on day two of the second Test match with India.

After England had quickly taken India's remaining wicket to bowl them all out for 295, Cook and Sam Robson came to the crease looking to make quick inroads into their opponents' total.

However, after recording a couple of boundaries, Cook edged behind off a delivery from Bhuvneshwar Kumar to give India the early momentum, and that continued when Robson fell for 17 shortly afterwards.

Gary Ballance and Ian Bell stood firm to take England to 51-2, but they require a positive afternoon session if they are to avoid conceding the advantage to India.
