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

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

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

Cheteshwar Pujara returned, with opener Shikhar Dhawan dropped and KL Rahul promoted to partner Murali Vijay. Some real good Test Cricket.

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

The bell-ringers for the subsequent days of the Test match will be announced via the Lord's website each day.

Dirty business: Mike Atherton was the first cricketer to be caught tampering with the ball when he rubbed dirt on it during a Test match against South Africa at Lord's in 1994.

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 17 May 2001.

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

The weather forecast appears better for Friday with play set to start at the usual time of 11 a.m., and an extra 30 minutes allowed at the end of the day. They can also be made captains.

England, 1-0 up in the five-match series after an absorbing 31-run win at Edgbaston last week, will hand a debut to Surrey batsman Ollie Pope with the 20-year-old replacing the out-of-form Dawid Malan.

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.

England have yet to decide whether Chris Woakes, a fellow pace-bowling all-rounder, or off-spinner Moeen Ali will replace Stokes.
