Rain wipes out day one of second Test between England and India

10 August, 2018, 13:12 | Author: Drew Briggs
  • Ollie Pope only managed eight runs in his first innings for the England Lions against India A

Showers are predicted during the day, but for now focus is on Cricket.

Play was called off for on Day 1 without a ball being bowled in the second cricket Test match between England and India at Lord's on Thursday. Murali Vijay has a new opening partner in KL Rahul.

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.

Apart from the draws, Birmingham has been a happy venue for England, with the hosts having been victorious in the matches that have not ended as draws.

Play was scheduled to start at 11:00 BST, but steady rain kept the covers on the pitch and prevented the toss at 10:30. Talking about the ongoing Test series, India lost the 1st Test at Edgbaston by 31 runs.

They will then start playing for real on August 12, with the Premier League regular season opener at home against West Ham United. Whereas Firmino is fain to drop deep and leave space for Mane and Salah, Sturridge spends far longer facing the opposition goal.

Twenty-year-old batsman Ollie Pope is expected to be given his England debut at number four after replacing Dawid Malan in the squad.

"This Test is the most important match in the series".

Stokes took three wickets on Sunday's fourth and last day at Edgbaston, including the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli. For India, Cheteshwar Pujara again failed to find a place while England have opted for fast bowler Chris Woakes over Moeen Ali.

England selected seamer Chris Woakes ahead of second spinner Moeen Ali for the delayed start of the second Test against India, and chose to bowl first.
