Gautam Gambhir believes Lord’s Test can decide India’s fate in the series

Gautam Gambhir believes Lord’s Test can decide India’s fate in the series

Latest updates: Kohli is beaten on his first delivery, which moves off the seam, and he gets off the mark with a quick single off his second ball. He also amassed 9,779 runs in 211 ODIs at 58.2 and 2,102 runs at 48.8 in 62 T20Is. And again before we could see the ultimate battle of Anderson v Kohli in these conditions at Lord's, the rain gods have their say.

Lord's has suffered its first washout in 17 years as rain prevented any play between England and India on day one of the second Test.

The first day was completely washed out without even the toss happening as the covers were present on the ground throughout the day.

Joe Root's men, meanwhile, will hope to break England's winless jinx against Asian teams at the home of cricket.

Captain Joe Root had earlier confirmed that the hosts will hand a maiden Test cap to young Ollie Pope, who replaces Dawid Malan.

If the leaked team-sheet proves authentic, then Kohli and the team management have opted to field the same playing XI that had lost the first Test of the five-match series at Edgbaston last week.

England will be without Ben Stokes at Lord's because of the all-rounder's ongoing trial for affray in Bristol. India have played 58 Tests on English soil, but could only win six of them.
