Five things India need to do in second Test at Lord's

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.

Watch day two of the second Test between England and India, at Lord's, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) from 10.30am on Friday.

Captain Root confirmed in Wednesday's media interaction that 20-year-old Ollie Pope will be handed his maiden Test cap tomorrow.

India were dismissed for under 300 in their first innings at Edgbaston and then failed to chase down a target of 194 second time around, being bowled out for 162 after Kohli made 51.

However, Lord's has been a good hunting ground for India. They won a Test here in 2014 under MS Dhoni's captaincy. We expect Kohli and Co.to give a good performance in the second Test.

She also noted Montana's high suicide rate and the empathy she feels for the people there going through the same thing. Hollywood has been rocked by suicides this year, with Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain also taking their own lives.

"It's been very hot in London for the last couple of months, there is good grass cover on it and that's required to keep the wicket together, otherwise it's going to be very hard for it to hold itself, even in the first two days". It is expected that the groundsmen will shave a few bits before the start of the match but even if they don't, the pitch is likely to turn out quite dry.

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

Drawing a comparison with legends such as Brian Lara and Vivian Richards, Waugh said Kohli has shown all the traits of a great batsman.

Well, bowling coach Bharat Arun hinted the visitors may not opt for an extra batsman and called it a "conservative move".
