Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - England vs Australia, 2nd Test, Day 5, Lord's

Cummins and Siddle picked two wickets apiece in England's second innings.

REVIEW LOST: Back on on-field action for now - Australia have taken another (poor) review. On-field umpire wasn't interested in that lbw appeal of Hazlewood. But, there's an inside edge. And the ball has pitched outside leg anyway... When they had to review, yesterday when Stokes was on 6, they didn't.

In terms of Steve's availability for the third Test, this will be considered over the coming days but the short turnaround to the next Test is not in his favour. Steve's fitness will be assessed on an ongoing basis. Steve will undergo a precautionary scan on his neck on Sunday. - Cricket Australia

More news: Labuschagne has officially been confirmed the first concussion sub in international cricket.

CONFIRMED: Steve Smith has been ruled out of this match due to delayed concussion. Australia are going to lodge an application for the concussion sub. No word yet on his participation in the next game at Leeds, which is in three days' time. ICC regulation states a like for like replacement, which means he who can bat, bowl and do everything that Smith would have done.

Right then, all set for some cricket now. Bright and sunny at the moment and doesn't seem like it rained at all!

Bharat Sundaresan brings in this news: "Looks like Smith has been ruled out of the remainder of the Test (today basically) after failing the morning concussion test." We're still awaiting the official confirmation on this though.

Revised playing times: 10 overs have been deducted.

Morning session: 12.10 - 13.30 | Afternoon session: 14.10 - 16.40

Vithushan pings - Both sets of players warming up. Steve Smith is not out there

From Vish's corner: The news we've all been waiting for - 12:10 London time is the start time - 1:30pm lunch

Meanwhile, this happened:

Update from the ground - Inspection is scheduled for 11:40am local time, i.e 10 mins from now.

The covers are still on, informs Vithushan, because it's still drizzling. It's slowed down a touch, but the rain is still falling, which means the covers won't be taken off just yet.

We're going to see a delayed start:

Weather report: Not something you'd like to hear, but it rained in the morning in London!

Dagety 4 recap: The rain stayed away and we saw one of the most gripping contests - that Jofra Archer spell vs Steve Smith, featuring two body blows and a retired hurt. Smith though resumed his innings, he had to be taken to hospital for precautionary scans and, thankfully, it revealed no fracture. Speaking in numbers, Australia managed 250 and conceded a lead ofmere 8 runs but then Pat Cummins and Peter Siddle picked two wickets apiece to England reeling at 71 for 4. By EoD, England had managed a lead of 104 with Stokes and Buttler holding fort.
