Indian playing XI for the second Test leaked

Surrey’s Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes replace Dawid Malan and Ben Stokes respectively

England and India were left frustrated at Lord's with persistent rain delaying the start of the second Test.

"From outside it looks very bad, especially as it is Test cricket and we are playing in England where it is anyway hard".

Virat Kohli and his men though might now have to deal with the seam and swing of the English pacers, under overcast conditions.

With India set to travel to Australia in November for 3 T20Is, 4 Tests and 3 ODI series, Waugh said Kohli's desire to win a Test series in Australia might put him in under pressure during the tour. The tourists' record at the venue is not a flattering one as they have won only 2 out of the 17 Tests they have played there.

Neither side made 300 in the match, England posting 287 before India replied with 274 in the first innings.

"When the wicket wears off, the spinners can come into play as well".

Pope, who is just 20, will slot in at number four for England, as a direct replacement for Dawid Malan, despite not batting there for his county Surrey - a decision that has anxious some, but not Root. "But he's obviously an exciting talent and, with the guys around him, I think he fits nicely into that position in our team".

England had dropped Virat Kohli thrice before he went on to score 149 in the first innings.

Team India: Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.

It will be interesting to see who England will turn to in the absence of Stokes.

"Then we need some composure", he added.

'He has reached a 1000 first class runs in just 15 matches and is the first division's stand-out batsman this season with 684 runs at 85. The left-hander managed a total of 39 runs in Edgbaston and got out in a similar fashion in both the innings.

We feel Shikhar Dhawan too could make way for C Pujara, who was surprisingly left out in the first Test. The problem this visiting Indian team is facing is that they are heavily dependant on Kohli. "The frustrating thing about last week it wasn't poor batsmanship (sic) that got me out, it was a poor passage of play in terms of running between the wickets".
