India's playing XI for 2nd Test vs England leaked?

09 August 2018

Joe Root's men produced an incredible performance at Edgbaston to beat India by 31 runs last week, courtesy of a superb effort from England's bowlers in the second innings. And then there is Ben Stokes.

"There must be a clear plan on how to face the first 20-30 balls, and more often than not that plan does not involve aggression", said Kohli, who was extremely watchful against swing king James Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, at Edgbaston.

Virat Kohli has jumped to the defence of India's batsmen, believing that all they need to do to fix their issues is show greater composure.

"He's very mature for a young man", said Root.

Since the rain hasn't stopped an early lunch has been taken by the umpires at Lord's.

The rain hasn't receded yet. The toss is already delayed by 90 minutes.

Update: It's still raining at Lord's and the covers aren't going to be removed any time sooner.

The last time a day's Test play was washed out completely at Lord's came 17 years ago when the scheduled opening day of the first Test against Pakistan was abandoned on May 17 2001. "I feel as a team we're just about there".

Forensic Accountant Next Up in Manafort Trial as Gates Ends Testimony
Before Gates could respond to the question or Downing could provide evidence that Gates lied about the alleged affairs, Judge T.S. Gates testified that Manafort asked him to float Calk, who was on Trump's economic advisory council, for Secretary of the Army.

The skipper defended his leadership after India fell short in the first of five Tests.

England captain Joe Root and India captain Virat Kohli.

20-year-old Ollie Pope has the highest average in the 2018 County Championship of anyone to record more than two innings (85.5 across 10 knocks); he replaces Dawid Malan who has only managed an average of 19.9 over the 11 Test innings he recorded in 2018.

India captain Virat Kohli has no qualms over who stars for his side so long as they win.

A couple of days before the second Test, there was a healthy amount of grass on the pitch at Lord's. This has also prompted a rethink in the Indian camp as to what bowling strategy they would want to go in with.

"It's a good choice, a tough one too", Bharat Arun, India's bowling coach, told reporters at Lord's on Tuesday.

"It hurts when you are not scoring runs (and) as well, the team is not doing well", Kohli said ahead of the crunch clash at the hone of cricket.

With Jasprit Bumrah ruled out, India are expected to retain the pace trio of Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, and Mohammed Shami.
