England v India: Rain delays start of second Test at Lord's

And welcome to coverage of day two of the second Test at Lord's after Thursday's dreich and frustrating ordeal.

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

England skipper Joe Root had earlier announced a 12-man squad for Lord's Test. The weather should be fine for game, but some spells of rain can not be ruled out.

The first day was completely washed out without even the toss happening as the covers were present on the ground throughout the day.

We should find out what we need to know at approximately 10.30am local time, with play scheduled to start at 11. He also made 18,426 runs in his 463 One-Day Internationals, with 49 hundreds.


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.

After losing by 31 runs at Edgbaston India will look to square the series at Lord's, a place where they won the last time they played in 2014.

England will be without Ben Stokes at Lord's because of the all-rounder's ongoing trial for affray in Bristol.

The big question for India will be if they will play two spinners, after having played R Ashwin as the lone spinner in the opening Test. Coming to 2nd Test which is to be played at Lord's India will look to settle score and all eyes will be on skipper Kohli who is in incredible form.
