The first morning at the ‘home of cricket’ turned out to be a damp affair, quite literally, as the first session of the second Test between England and India was washed out due to rain.
Most of England was in the grip of a heat wave over the past two months and it seemed like the Indians would get to start the Lord’s Test with conditions similar to the sub-continent.
Virat Kohli and his men though might now have to deal with the seam and swing of the English pacers, under overcast conditions. While the weather continues to play tricks at London, it is not all gloom and doom for the Indians.

The menu for the first morning at Lord’s includes chicken tikka curry, paneer tikka curry, dal and mixed vegetable, along with continental cuisine.
Indian cricket fans can only hope that the culinary delights will keep the Indian team in good spirits while they wait for the action to begin.
India had lost the first Test of the series to England by 31 runs at Edgbaston. 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.
