    Day 2 round-up: Rain and Bhuvneshwar Kumar combined in Manchester on Friday to help India stop England from taking a clear advantage in the fourth Test, which saw the hosts go 85 runs into the lead with four wickets in hand at stumps on day two.

    India struck thrice on the second morning but Joe Root (48*) and Jos Buttler (22*) added 67 runs to take England to 237 for 6, after which rain and the resultant wet outfield washed out a session and a half.

    India, after succumbing to 152 on Thursday, needed early wickets on the second morning; and Bhuvneshwar provided that by removing nightwatchman Chris Jordan for 13 and dangerman Ian Bell for 58 after the veteran England batsman threatened to take the game away.
