India vs England 2nd Test Day 1 was washed out due to relentless rain

More rain expected at Lord's

England's Alastair Cook (3R) celebrates with teammates after taking the catch to dismiss India's Ajinkya Rahane for 18 on the second day of the second Test cricket match between England and India at Lord's Cricket Ground in London on 10 August 2018.

Having scored 141 runs in the afternoon session to take the lead past 100, England continued to dominant after tea, with Bairstow reaching his half-century and Woakes following suit shortly after.

Captain Kohli hasn't played the same XI in successive Tests for 36 matches, dating back to the 2014 Adelaide Test in which he led India in whites for the first time in his career.

That brought debutant Ollie Pope to the crease and Surrey's talented 20-year-old showed no signs of nerves as he combined with Root to take the score to 77-2.

Kohli had single-handedly made the first test at Edgbaston competitive, his 200 runs failing to save India as England took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, but he couldn't repeat his heroics on a green wicket at Lord's.

Amazingly, the same thing happened with the fall of India's fifth wicket, Buttler again spurning a chance in the cordon off Woakes to spare Hardik Pandya before grasping the second edge the very next delivery.




Joe Root (19) had battled through a hard spell when he first came to the crease and was set to be rewarded with more favourable conditions in the afternoon, only to be undone by Shami with a ball that nipped back and stayed low in the final over of the morning.

Earlier this week, the left-arm pacer was seen bowling to Indian batsmen like Murali Vijay and skipper Virat Kohli in the nets under the watchful eyes of Team India head coach Ravi Shastri.

Memon feels that after the opening day was washed out due to rain, Kohli could have played only one spinner in the Test.

What's done is done, though, and India will look for a disciplined bowling performance to get back into the game.

That followed a first-day washout in London.
