Only four days are left in the yet-to-start second Test between England and India at Lord’s Cricket Ground here, and the players and fans will hope that the rain Gods stay away on day two on Friday.
The first day was completely washed out without even the toss happening as the covers were present on the ground throughout the day.
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.
Joe Root’s men, meanwhile, will hope to break England’s winless jinx against Asian teams at the home of cricket. India were the last Asian opponents whom England beat at Lord’s in a Test back in 2011.
England: Joe Root (Captain), Moen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler (wicketkeeper), Alastair Cook, Sam Curran, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, Jamie Porter, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes.
India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Shikhar Dhawan Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Lokesh Rahul, Ishant Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Murali Vijay, Umesh Yadav
