Fantasy Cricket: Dream11 tips for 2nd Test-- England v India

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

With rainfall forecasted for Friday, another frustrating day with a lot of interruptions is on the cards. Murali Vijay has a new opening partner in KL Rahul.

Drizzle fell in London throughout the day with play finally called off shortly before 4.50pm with the 6pm cut-off for play to start quickly approaching.

The ringing of the five-minute bell at a Lord's Test by an global cricketer, administrator or well-known enthusiast of the sport is a recent tradition introduced in 2007.

It is the first time a whole Test match day has been lost to the weather at the home of cricket since May 2001, against Pakistan.

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.

England lead the five-match series 1-0 after completing a thrilling 31-run victory at Edgbaston last week in Birmingham.

They will, however, make at least two changes to their side.

Snow in Sunny's way: Sunil Gavaskar bumps into England fast bowler John Snow while taking a single in the 1971 Test match.

Stokes took three wickets on Sunday's fourth and last day at Edgbaston, including the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli.

Chris Woakes will come in if England opt for a further seam option, while Moeen Ali will play if the hosts plump for two spinners.

India have played 58 Tests on English soil, but could only win six of them.
