England are on the verge of defeat after India put in a superb performance with the bat and ball in the second Test at Lord's.

Set 319 to win, England lost three wickets for two runs, including beleaguered captain Alastair Cook for 22, to end the day staring into the abyss on 105-4.

Earlier Murali Vijay hit 95, Ravi Jadeja a swashbuckling 68 off 57 balls and Bhuvneshwar Kumar 52 to help the tourists progress quickly from their overnight 169-4 to 342 all out.

Defeat would put England 1-0 down in the series with three matches to play and extend their winless run to 10 Tests.
