Frustrating the two teams, incessant rain washed out the entire day one of the second cricket Test between India and England at Lord's on Thursday. Early Lunch has been taken.

England lead the five-match series 1-0 after their thrilling 31-run win at Edgbaston last weekend.

Only four Tests between an Asian team and England have ended in draws. The wicket looks dry but the slight drizzle and the overcast conditions will offer some assistance to the bowlers.

England will miss the services of all-rounder Ben Stokes, who will be appearing in Bristol to answer charges of affray.

Tendulkar was invited by officials at Lord's Cricket Ground to ring the iconic bell for the first time yesterday.

Ollie Pope was due to make his Test debut on Thursday but will now have to wait until Friday, when he will hope the weather picks up enough for him to take to the field with his first England cap.

The Indian batsmen, who succumbed to England's probing pace and swing, will look to answer their batting woes in the second match.

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. England might have settled on one of their two selectorial decisions, the other will be decided on the first morning, a straight shootout between Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes, with Jamie Porter released from the original squad of 13.
