Vijay hits gutsy half-century
The Tamil Nadu opener has shown tremendous patience during his 190-ball knock today which had seven fours but more impressive was his decisiveness while leaving deliveries outside the off-stump.
With England batting deep, it will be interesting to see what kind of target is set by the Indian batsmen. India will be aiming for a lead of 250 plus in order to make a match of it on a Lord's track which will then help Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Co to exploit the conditions.
It was 6/82 was the main reason for India getting England out for 319 in their first innings thereby restricting the first innings lead to 24.
