Much for India to do when the rain stops. Catch Live score and updates of India vs England 2nd Test Day 2.

Skipper Virat Kohli comes down and takes a single straight away. The umpires have had enough and they are signalling for the covers to come on and the players are walking off. The play has been interrupted by rain.

GONE! KL Rahul has edged it to Jonny Bairstow. Outswinging delivery from James Anderson and Rahul could not stop himself from flinging his bat. He had been leaving the ball beautifully so far, but committed himself here and paid the price. IND 10/2

Cheteshwar Pujara has made sure he doesn’t poke at anything outside the off-stump. Stuart Broad is equally dangerous in these conditions as James Anderson

India get off the mark – and it takes a brilliant cover driver from KL Rahul to get the score board ticking. Just a tad bit off on his line, Stuart Broad, and Rahul just opened the face of the bat to hit his trademark shot. India get first runs on the board. IND 4/1

3 overs gone – India yet to get the scorecard ticking. Excellent bowling from both James Anderson and Sturt Broad so far. The two seamers are troubling the Indian batsmen with a swing, and are mixing the lengths. 

BOWLED! CRACKER OF A DELIVERY! Murali Vijay goes into the shot too early against an in-swinger and leaves his stumps exposed. The stumps have been knocked down and India suffer their first blow in the fifth ball of the match. IND 0/1

HERE WE GO! Murali Vijay and KL Rahul come out in the middle for India. Rahul back to his favourite position – to open the innings. For England, it is seamer James Anderson who starts with the new ball. 

India have made a couple of changes in the playing XI – As everyone expected Cheteshwar Pujara to return to the team – he makes way for Shikhar Dhawan who has been asked to sit down. India are playing with two spinners as Kuldeep Yadav plays for Umesh Yadav.

India Playing XI: Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma

Joe Root: We are going to bowl first. Looks a fresh wicket. With the weather around it gives us a good chance to take wickets. Woakes comes in. We gave ourselves an option with that green tinge. Just really hope he plays well.

Virat Kohli: It’s a hard pitch, looks dry. The wicket looks good, much better than Edgbaston. We have to enjoy the game. We have brought back Pujara and Kuldeep Yadav comes in the side for Umesh. We have a good balance looking at two spinners and two quality all-rounders.

England win the toss, elect to bowl first against India.

Good news for all cricketing fans. We have clear skies at Lord’s and the play is expected to begin right on schedule on Day 2. The sun is out and the surface and the outfield is dried. It looks to be a good day to play cricket.

Mick Hunt is the head groundsman of Lord’s and this is his last game. After 48 years of tending to the most famous cricket greens in the worlds, Hunt is retiring. In 2008, he was diagnosed with cancer in the kidney and bladder, and had two tumours removed. A little bit of rain wasn’t going to upset him or make it a wet farewell. The other men in his team would watch him from afar, from the campervan-like vehicle outside the fence. Now and then, one or two would join him. The rain persisted whole day, though.

Hello and welcome to our Live blog on the second day of the second Test between India and England. The weather and rain played a spoilsport on the first day of the Test at Lord’s and left the India and England fans frustrated. But, if you were an England supporter, would you really mind the match being washed out completely? England already have a 1-0 lead in the series, thanks to the thrilling contest between the two teams at Edgbaston which went in the favour of the home side. India need to bounce back and must win the second Test to bring things back on level terms. Skipper Virat Kohli will be eager to go out in the middle and push for a start to the match, which is bound to be tricky now, considering the conditions and the fact that there will only be four days.

India vs England Live Cricket Score 2nd Test Day 2 Live Streaming: Frustrating the two teams, incessant rain washed out the entire day one of the second cricket Test between India and England at Lord’s on Thursday. The play was called off at 4.50 pm local time without a single ball being bowled. The match officials decided to take an early lunch, moving the scheduled break ahead by 30 minutes. Even after lunch, there was no respite from the rain and it went on throughout the afternoon. Finally, 45 minutes after the ‘tea break’, the umpires inspected conditions twice before declaring no play was possible on Thursday. The remaining four days will see 96 overs each to make up for the lost time. However, there is more rain forecast for this weekend and as such this match could see routine rain breaks.
