Rain delayed the start of the second Test between England and India at Lord's. England have won back-to-back Tests ahead of this contest; they can equal their longest winning run since a four-game streak in 2013 by seeing off India in the 2nd Test of this series. The uncapped Essex seam bowler Jamie Porter again misses out from the squad of 13.
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. "It is not like I feel bad that I got runs and we couldn't get across the line", he said.

The conditions have prompted the Indian camp to rethink their bowling strategy and find a combination to go with.
