India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 2nd Test, Day 2: Hello and welcome to our Live Coverage of the day two of the second Test match between India and England at Lord’s, London. India and England will hope for a rain-free day at Lord’s on Friday after play was called off on the first day without a ball being bowled on Thursday. Showers rarely relented in north-west London on the opening day. England lead the five-match series 1-0 after completing a thrilling 31-run victory at Edgbaston on Saturday in Birmingham. The weather forecast appears better for Friday with play set to start at the usual time of 3.30 PM IST, and an extra 30 minutes allowed at the end of the day. With the rain never stopping long enough for the toss to take place, both England and India have still to name their starting XI. Chris Woakes is expected to replace allrounder Ben Stokes, who is standing trial in Bristol on a charge of affray. England has already confirmed that 20-year-old Ollie Pope will replace Dawid Malan at No. 4 in the batting lineup. After India’s struggles with the bat in the series opener, Cheteshwar Pujara could be recalled to the team to provide greater solidity at the top of the order.
