  • Virat Kohli questions mentality of Indian top order

We are as disappointed as you guys but hey this is 2018 and Test matches end in four days quite a few times. India would want to level it.

Play was completely washed out on the opening day of second Test between India and England.

England and India were left frustrated at Lord's with persistent rain wiping out the whole of day one of the second Test.

It will be interesting to see who England will turn to in the absence of Stokes.

England captain Joe Root and India captain Virat Kohli.

In team news, England had announced a 12-man squad with 20-year-old batsman Ollie Pope coming in to make his debut at number four after replacing Dawid Malan in the squad.

"It hurts when you are not scoring runs (and) as well, the team is not doing well", Kohli said ahead of the crunch clash at the hone of cricket.

Stokes wished his colleagues well in a Twitter message accompanied by an Instagram photograph of all-rounder Sam Curran, like Pope a 20-year-old Surrey star, celebrating a wicket.

India came up with a decent performance in Edgbaston but it was not enough to stop Joe Root's men from taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. The traditional and customary English weather was back in its full force and had wiped away the first two sessions.

India struggled against the swinging ball, with England finding it hard to combat Ravichandran Ashwin's off-spin.

Yet this season has seen Pope make 684 runs for Championship leaders Surrey at an average of 85.5, including three centuries. The left-hander managed a total of 39 runs in Edgbaston and got out in a similar fashion in both the innings.

"I think it's sometimes easy to criticise the batting group but I thought the way both seaming groups in particular bowled was outstanding".

Despite failing to impress in the first Test, Rahul and Vijay will open if Dhawan makes way for Pujara.

"It's a good choice, a tough one too", Bharat Arun, India's bowling coach, told reporters at Lord's on Tuesday.

"Then we need some composure", he added.

But Arun said Jasprit Bumrah was "out of contention", the paceman still sidelined after missing the first Test with the broken thumb he suffered during a Twenty20 global against Ireland in June.

Kohli & Root- The two skippers are going to be the most important batsmen and even in fantasy cricket, they need to fit in all teams.

"The conditions were trying".

But he was wary of playing an extra batsman at Lord's.
