    Chris Woakes

    Well I am off to do my rain dance before tomorrow. Here's hoping the forecast is wrong. England are in a brilliant position in this match.

    Chris Woakes has played a big part in that. He won't forget making his maiden Test hundred.

    Scoll down for highlights and click here to read Amy Lofthouse's report.

    I'll speak to you again tomorrow at 10:30 BST.

  2. 'Pope doesn't quite look a number four'

    Ollie Pope looked busy, active, but a little frantic. Maybe that was a few nerves. What I saw is that he has got a game.

    He was busy. He uses that right bottom hand a lot. As an opposition, you would try and get the ball shaping away from him.

    He doesn't quite look a number four and he bats number six for Surrey.

    We got our first sight of 20-year-old Ollie Pope batting for England today. He made 28 on debut before falling to Hardik Pandya for 28.

    He looked decent. There were a few nice shots in his innings but like many recent call-ups he failed kick on after a start.

    I thought Cook looked good today. I had concerns about him at Edgbaston but today he looked fine. He got a few shots away early. I don't think he should be too concerned but in his own mind he does need a score. I don't think he'll get a second innings here.

    But it wasn't all plain sailing for England. The excellence from Woakes and Bairstow covers over those top order cracks.

    England were once again in a spot of bother after the loss of early wickets which left them 89-4.

  7. 'England are so hard to play against'

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    I don't think anything has gone India's way with conditions and the toss. From Edgbaston to Lord's, what I have seen when the ball is moving, England are so hard to play. They have so much quality, Broad, Anderson, Curran...

    India are the number one team and within three innings we are watching a talented group of batsmen look very average because the ball is moving. You can question the preparation of India but also the mentality.

  8. 'We want more runs before before declaring'

    With a lead of 250 and a dodgy weather forecast on Sunday, will England declare overnight?

    Chris Woakes, who is unbeaten on 120, told Sky Sports: "Potentially but I think we would want a few more. We do need to take into consideration the forecast but that isn't always accurate. So I think we will want a few more and then if the conditions are right for us, happy days."

  9. Post update

    Woakes' century came during an excellent partnership with Jonny Bairstow.

    The pair put on 189 to put England in this dominant position.

    Bairstow was a little edgy early on but grew into his innings...

  10. 'I didn't know what to do at three figures!'

    Chris Woakes, who made an unbeaten 120, on Sky Sports: "It’s hard to put into words. It wasn’t on my radar at the start of the day.

    "But it’s an incredible feeling to raise your bat at Lord’s and put the team into a good position.

    "I didn’t really know what to do at three figures! It’s a unique feeling and it will stay with more forever."

    This was the moment Woakes reached three figures. It seemed to be one of the best-received hundreds at Lord's for a long time.

    The scenes on the England dressing room were lovely to see.

    Today is a day Chris Woakes will never forget. In his 25th Test he has reached his first Test century. He batted excellently and showed the top order how it should be done.

    He defended the good balls and whacked the bad ones. He hardly offered a chance to India and has taken England into a position where they cannot lose.

    Well that's a disappointing end to the day. Let's recap everything we have seen today.

    Lead by 250

    That's it. The umpires have called it. Bad light has ended this third day early.

    Chris Woakes will go to bed 120 not out after reaching his maiden Test century. England are 250 runs ahead of India with two days remaining.

  16. Post update

    This is the forecast for tomorrow. Monday's forecast is better but it looks like we're going to have a lot of play lost tomorrow. That is why so many of you wanted England to declare an hour ago.

    SMS Message: Absolute joke we've come off for bad light. A T20 would only just be starting now. We've travelled from Crewe, spent £120 on a ticket and then train travel and they have gone off because it's a bit gloomy and the floodlights are on! Joke. from Anon

    The umpires are out again but it looks to have got gloomier again. A light from one of the boxes in the Mound Stand is shining brightly.

    I fear we may not see any more play.

    If you are Ravi Shastri when you get in, you say we've got to do better. We might have got the selection wrong, but the bowling is gone. He's talking to his batsmen. 'You need to help your skipper out, he can't do it all on his own'.
