England v India: second Test, day two

James Anderson and Virat Kohli enjoyed a battle in the opening Test

Kuldeep Yadav and Cheteshwar Pujara come in for Umesh Yadav and Shikhar Dhawan.

Kohli blasted 149 and 51 runs in the first and second innings against England in the opening Test to become the seventh India batsman and the first since Sachin Tendulkar (in June 2011) to top the ICC rankings for Test batsmen.

After losing the first Test by 31 runs, India will look to settle scores in the second Test match and all eyes were on skipper Virat Kohli prior to the start of the match.

From making his debut for India U-19 against Sri Lanka U-19 in a youth Test, to taking a wicket in his very first over of that match, it has been an exciting time for Arjun Tendulkar recently. Of the past 10 Tests at Lord's, only four have gone into a fifth day - against Sri Lanka in 2016, New Zealand in 2015, India and Sri Lanka in 2014.

Chris Woakes is expected to replace all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is standing trial in Bristol on a charge of affray. It has taken the Indian captain 37 games to play the same team in two back-to-back Test matches.

It is the first time a whole Test match day has been lost to the weather at the home of cricket since May 2001, against Pakistan. With Jasprit Bumrah not fit enough to take the field, the visiting team is likely to stick with the same bowling attack that played in Edgbaston.
