England have to chase down 319 against India at Lord’s in the 4th innings. They did manage to cross 100 odd runs on the 4th day and still need 200 odd runs to be scored on the final day with 6 wickets in hand. Some might say it will be easy for India, while others said England might take it away from India. Let us take a look at history as to how England have faired in the 4th innings at Lord’s –

307 has been their highest score in the 4th innings and 282 has been the highest successful chase for England at Lord’s in 4th innings. With 319 being the target this time round it already looks to be tough task for the team to achieve. It will interesting to see if they can chase down this total and create history or lose to India and let them create history. Either ways a record will be made until and unless rain gods give a visit and match ends in a draw.
