England’s bowlers will be hoping to make up for lost time on day four of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s as they look for early inroads against Australia.

Only 24.1 overs were possible on Friday, with two full sessions washed out to add to the three lost to a day-one abandonment, but the home side can still make headway with quick wickets.

Australia will resume on 80 for four, with Steve Smith an ominous presence at the crease following his match-winning centuries in each innings at Edgbaston.

Stuart Broad believes a home win is still on the cards if he and the rest of the attack can wrap up the next six wickets before lunch, meaning the stakes are certain to be high come 11am.

Broad has already taken two in the innings, David Warner and Travis Head, and will be relying on debutant Jofra Archer – who opened his Test account with a tight lbw against Cameron Bancroft – and Chris Woakes for support.
