India vs England, Lord's Test

India vs England, Lord's Test

"It is purely because we haven't won the games".

Meanwhile, the game swung from one end to other, as the hosts held nerves to take it home by 31 runs.

He came close to selector's eye scoring a match winning unbeaten half century against India A at Worcester last month. England will make a last-minute decision on that after seeing the pitch, which was kept under a tarpaulin sheet for much of yesterday amid fears that... The visitors nearly came close to winning it at Birmingham and are capable of doing the same at Lord's. With the bat, skipper Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and opener Keaton Jennings are doing good.

England would also like to see an improved batting performance.

Ollie Pope set to debut for England at Lord's.

Joe Root's men have yet to decide how they will replace key all-rounder Ben Stokes, who will miss the match in the capital while he attends his affray trial at Bristol Crown Court. Bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes has been named as Stokes' replacement.

England have outstretched the selection for this week's match at Lord's against India to 20 year old Surrey batsman Ollie Pope, axing the struggling Dawid Malan. They don't have to look beyond their skipper Virat Kohli for inspiration. A lot has been spoken about the need for Kohli to trust his batsmen but history suggests the Indian captain may not be averse to chopping and changing once again.

The Lord's ground staff has worked hard to maintain a tinge of green on the pitch despite the heatwave in England.

The bell-ringers for the subsequent days of the Test match will be announced via the Lord's website each day.

The conditions underfoot are likely to be similar to Edgbaston. However, it will eventually be clear, and the sun will come out bright. This is not the first time that Sachin Tendulkar's son has bowled to the current Indian team, but did roll his arms over at the start of the tour as well. If they feel the need to go for an extra spin-bowling option, Moeen Ali might get a look in.

This current England side have proven to be horribly inconsistent in Test matches, while their record at Lord's against Asian teams has also been poor recently, their last win here against any of India, Pakistan or Sri Lanka coming in 2011.
