    Former England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    Stuart Broad will be key for England. He has won games of cricket on this ground - when we bowled out New Zealand very cheaply here, he got on a roll. Ireland will do well to get through Stuart Broad's spell. When there's a game on the line, he is your man. That will be so crucial as to how Ireland get through that.

  3. Highest successful fourth-innings chases at Lord's

    If you want the good news England fans - Ireland will already need to pull off the fourth-highest successful run chase at Lord's to win this one.

    But you can also see this spirited, skillful Irish side doing it.

    More from Jack Leach: "We've given ourselves a chance. We believe we can definitely win the game. The wicket is still doing bits. We've got to make the most of that tomorrow.

    T"here's a little bit there [for the spinners]. If we've got players trying to maybe take a few risks against us, we can put pressure on them and we'll come into the game, definitely."

    England's Jack Leach, who scored 92, speaking to Test Match Special: "It was very surreal, in front of the Lord's crowd. I was trying to eat up some balls, take pressure off the batters coming in, and it seemed to go on longer than I and everyone else thought it would.

    "I've scored one hundred from the Somerset second XI and that's literally the only 100 I've ever scored. It wasn't to be but I still would have taken 92 at the start of the day.

    On whether he could switch to opening the batting: "I don't think I'm the answer to that! I've done it a couple of times now."

    Sadly a Test century wasn't to be - Alex Tudor's 99 not out remains the highest score by an England nightwatchman.

  13. 'You've got to keep believing'

    England's Jack Leach, on Sky Sports: "The boys defended 180 against India at Edgbaston last year, and they say the wicket was better there. You've got to keep believing."

    On England's second collapse of the game: "We've got to move on quickly because the Ashes are round the corner. For now, it's just thinking about tomorrow and we're confident we've got enough in this game."

    England's Jack Leach, who made 92, on Sky Sports: "It was nice to be out there this morning and try and eat up some balls, take the shine off. I was just taking it a ball at a time.

    "It seemed to go alright. It was good fun and it was nice to bat with J-Roy.

    "I was telling myself not to think about it, which probably means I was thinking about it. It wasn't to be but I tried my best."

  16. Post update

    Recently I slipped on a wet pitch when trying to turn two, called no a bit too late and my partner was run out. On 49.

    All been there, Alastair.

    I ran out Nick Browne at the beginning of the season. I shouted no a bit late and never moved, and he was run out by quite a long way. You just stand there - it's the same feeling as dropping a catch.

    Former Ireland wicketkeeper on BBC Test Match Special

    Joe Root never really recovered after that run-out. He must have felt awful. It was a stitch-up.

    Ireland bowler Mark Adair, who took 3-66, speaking to Test Match Special: "It was a good day but I think credit to the bowlers, who just kept running in and kept bashing hard.

    "Some of the lads were in Sri Lanka in the winter so this weather made them feel a bit like they were back there.

    "Conversations this morning were about us bowling England out. These lads are good cricketers, they've played a lot of cricket, so it was nice to get them."
