Alastair Cook's future as England captain could be in doubt after the Essex star failed once again with the bat.
The 29-year-old could only manage 22 in his second innings against India, to follow-up a score of 10 in his first knock.
It means that Cook now hasn't hit a century in 27 test innings, and his captaincy credentials have also come into question.
Cook's woes with the bat
- Cook's last century was against New Zealand in May 2013. He hit 130 at Headingley.
- Since then, he's averaged just over 24.
With England on 105-4 going into the final day at Lord's, and chasing an unlikely target of 319 to win, a ninth consecutive test without a win looks a real possibility.
Many pundits now think that enough in enough, including former skipper Michael Vaughan who told The Telegraph that taking the captaincy away from Cook could help to revitalise his career.
"We have reached the stage with Cook when he cannot be enjoying cricket. You don’t when you are not playing well and the team is struggling.
It is easy for the England and Wales Cricket Board to say it is going to stick by him but it has to ask what is best for the team and for Cook.
The ECB has a responsibility to Cook the person to do the right thing and if that means taking the captaincy away then so be it."
Cook can only sit and hope that the rest of the England batsmen can get him out of jail today, but anything less than a win would surely lead to serious questions about his fate.
