Rain washed out the play on Day 1 of the first test at Lord’s and it was a similar story on the second day as well. After constant interruptions throughout the day India found themselves in trouble once again against England’s pace battery and were bowled out for 107. James Anderson, who took five wickets, removed both openers while Cheteshwar Pujara was run out. Virat Kohli looked good before he was removed by Chris Woakes. Ravichandran Ashwin was the top scorer for India with 29. India will have to do really well with the ball to have any chance in the match.

Stat Alert

That was a horrible moment for India’s batsmen, but it’s an all too familiar scene for Chesteshwar Pujara. Of India’s last 10 Test run-outs, Pujara has been involved in seven of them.

Oh dear. Pujara!

Lovely stroke by Kl Rahul, leans forward to a pitched up ball and then times it through covers. The outfield is still quick enough and India get off the mark

15:43 hrs IST

Litmus test for Pujara

This is perhaps the biggest Test of Cheteshwar Pujara’s career. He has been brought into the side to provide solidity to the top order. With India losing Vijay in the very first over and James Anderson bowling at his best, Pujara will have to dig his heel deep and bail India out.

15:33 hrs IST

Vijay knocked over

The ball was angled in, it pitches on the stumps and then decks away to beat Vijay’s prod, crashes into the stumps.
