Second Test, Day two

India's captain Virat Kohli chats with India's MS Dhoni during the One Day International

The weather gods intervened and chose to play the spoilsport on the opening day of the second cricket Test between India and England at the iconic Lord's Cricket Ground on Thursday.

The ringing of the five-minute bell at a Lord's Test by an worldwide cricketer, administrator or well-known enthusiast of the sport is a recent tradition introduced in 2007. Showers are predicted during the day, but for now focus is on Cricket.

Drizzle fell in London throughout the day with play finally called off shortly before 4.50pm with the 6pm cut-off for play to start quickly approaching.

In 1990, Tendulkar's first Test match against England came at Lord's, and he was made an Honorary Life Member of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in 2010. The first Test was a thriller which ended as a nightmare for Kohli's team as Joe Root's men were too strong for India as they completed a 31-run win.

Despite the issues with the batting order, Kohli remains upbeat about his team's chances of levelling the series when the match gets under way on Thursday.

They will, however, make at least two changes to their side.

If the leaked image turns out to be true, this will be the first time under Virat Kohli that India will be having the same playing XI in successive Tests. For India, Cheteshwar Pujara again failed to find a place while England have opted for fast bowler Chris Woakes over Moeen Ali.
