England edge ahead of India

England lose three wickets during the morning session of day two but open up a 49-run advantage over India in the fourth Test match at Old Trafford.

England have opened up a 49-run advantage over India at lunch on day two of the fourth Test match at Old Trafford.

After resuming on 113-3, England added another 23 runs before nightwatchman Chris Jordan was dismissed for 13.

Ian Bell, who had earlier reached his half-century, soon followed for 58, but Joe Root and Moeen Ali went some way to restoring calm in the middle with a 30-run partnership.

However, Varun Aaron struck to remove Ali for 13, which also saw him pick up his third wicket to reduce England to 170-6, but Jos Buttler joined Root at the crease to help England to 201-6 at the end of the session.
