  • India vs England 2nd Test Day 1 live updates

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

Joe Root's men have yet to decide how they will replace key all-rounder Ben Stokes, who will miss the match in the capital while he attends his affray trial at Bristol Crown Court. Skipper Virat Kohli was the lone Indian batsman who put up meaningful contributions with the bat. The traditional and customary English weather was back in its full force and had wiped away the first two sessions. Joe Root and his men would start confident thanks to their win in the first Test. Early Lunch has been taken.

The rain hasn't receded yet.

Meanwhile, the toss did not take place as Day 1 was washed off due to consistent drizzle.

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

Only four Tests between an Asian team and England have ended in draws.

Thursday was the first time a full day's play has been lost at Lord's since the opening day of the first test against Pakistan in 2001.

Alastair Cook needs 84 to become only the second batsman ever to post 2,000 Test runs at Lord's, he'll need 100 to go above the leading scorer there (Gooch, 2,015); he's averaged just 18.4 across his 11 Test knocks so far in 2018 however. He smashed his first Test century (149) in the first innings and a 51 in the second innings as wickets kept tumbling at the other end. Kohli was in prolific form and will be key batsman for visitors in the 2nd Test as well.

Rainy morning in London!

However, Lord's has been a good hunting ground for India. Since 2014, Asian sides have won three and drawn two Tests at Lord's.

"As long as we cross the line, that is the only thing that matters", Kohli insisted.

Ganguly, India's second most successful captain in Tests jointly with Virat Kohli at the moment, wrote in a column for the Times of India that India should seriously consider the option of fielding a second spinner at the iconic venue and also backed the chinaman ahead of the senior left-arm spinner.

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