    11:25 pm End of play - Day 2 - England 456-3

    India's annihilation was summed up in the last over of Day 2 when another catch went a begging - the 4th of the day - Dravid thew his cap down in disgust after dropping Morgan in the slips off Suresh Raina. England have batted India out of the Test and it will take an enormous effort for them to even salvage a draw out of it. We'll be back for all the action on Day 3.

    10: 55 pm England’s lead has crossed the 200-run mark and they still have 7 wickets handy. India have let down 3 chances in the field and despite a good effort from Praveen Kumar, the bowling hasn’t been able to dislodge the now mighty English batting lineup.

    Seamers Stuart Broad and Tim Bresnan took four wickets each as India continued with their struggle against England in the Test series. Skipper MS Dhoni rescued India from the depths of 111 for seven to 224 in 62.2 overs. Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook took England to 84 without loss in reply to India's modest first innings 224, a deficit of 140 runs, at Edgbaston. Perfect day for England cricket team as police across the country prepared for a fifth successive night of rioting.

    Simon Hughes says the Indian batsmen played like men expecting to fail. Excerpts from his column in The Daily Telegraph -

    England bowl to carefully laid plans. They bowl in partnerships. All teams attempt to do this, of course. It is just that this England are exceptional at sticking to the programme devised for them by their bowling coach David Saker.

    11 pm - England 84 for no loss at stumps on Day 1

    Andrew Strauss made his first 50 of the series and with India unable to get a breakthrough, Day 2 is already looking long and painful for the Indian bowlers. This was after the batsman gave up a good chance to put up a decent score on a pitch that looked favourable for batting. Fans are secretly wishing the team would have cited security concerns and made the trip back home to save them from the humiliation of another debacle.

    Will Day 2 see a miraculous turnaround or will England firm their grip around the number 1 Test ranking status that is slipping away from India's soapy hands? We'll be back to take you through all the action.
