No play on Day 1 of second Test due to rain

MS Dhoni Virat Kohli

Umpires hurry everyone off the field.

Nothing doing: Rain clouds hang above the pitch at Lord's.

Joe Root's men, meanwhile, will hope to break England's winless jinx against Asian teams at the home of cricket.

The first day was completely washed out without even the toss happening as the covers were present on the ground throughout the day. Virat Kohli and Co are now 0-1 down in the series and Gautam Gambhir, the Delhi-born cricketer, reckons that it will be extremely hard for India to make a comeback if they lose the upcoming match.

Wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who enjoyed an impressive run in the one-day series last month, and experienced allrounder Ravindra Jadeja are in contention for a spot in the final line-up.

Newcastle United Players To 'Strike' Over Bonuses Dispute
Every top flight club must assist the Premier League's host broadcasters as they gather video footage ahead of the new campaign. Rondon is Newcastle's sixth summer addition, alongside Martin Dubravka, Kenedy, Ki Sung-yueng, Fabian Schar and Yoshinori Muto.


Joe Root has confirmed that the 20-year-old debutant Ollie Pope will bat at No 4 in the second Test against India at Lord's today.

In 1990, Tendulkar's first Test match against England came at Lord's, and he was made an Honorary Life Member of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in 2010.

England have yet to decide whether Chris Woakes, a fellow pace-bowling all-rounder, or off-spinner Moeen Ali will replace Stokes.

Update: Virat Kohli makes two changes to the playing XI that featured at Edgbaston.
