England vs Australia 2nd Test, Day 4 Highlights: England have ended Day 4 with a lead of 104 runs and six wickets in hand in the second Ashes Test at Lord’s on Saturday. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes will resume batting for the hosts on the morning of Day 5. Australia were dismissed with a deficit of 8 runs earlier in the day, with the highlight of that innings being a duel for the ages between Steve Smith (92) and Jofra Archer. Smith led the Aussie resistance, had to retire hurt after being struck by a bouncer frpm Archer, only to return with two boundaries in one over.
England seemed to be on the verge of crisis a few times in the evening session on Day 4, but Stokes and Buttler, sometimes batting against their attacking instincts, saw through the innings till rain forced a premature end to the day’s proceedings.
