09:40 GMT: Start of play for the day
Hello and warm welcome folks, to the live ball-by-ball commentary of 2nd Test between the host England and the touring Indian sides. Both the teams are ready to take on each other at Lord's Cricket Ground, St John's Wood, London.
The hosts have left out James Porter for the second Test, and have confirmed that Ollie Pope will be given his debut cap. They are still undecided on who to choose between Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes, and it would depend on their reading of the pitch on the first morning. Ali batted for a long time in the nets, more than the other England batters, and if that can be read as a hint, he might just get the nod.
India have a few more selection headaches than England. For one, if they want to bring in Cheteshwar Pujara, who does he come in for? Shikhar Dhawan looks the likely candidate, but if India want to keep hold of a free scoring batsman on a good pitch, KL Rahul could make way. On the bowling front, the second spinner, as Kohli said, is a tempting choice. Kuldeep and Jadeja will be vying for the spot, but who could sit out is a more interesting discussion. Of the bowlers, only Ishant and Ashwin returned with figures that would ensure they play the second Test.
The toss and the teams news coming up shortly, please stay tuned....
It is drizzling out there in London, so the toss has been delayed......

18:52 GMT: Stumps day 2, what a comeback from English bowlers after a long wait due to rain. Brilliant bowling display from English bowlers rolled India over to 107 in just 35.2 overs play. Anderson removed both openers early on after that Pope removed Pujara with a run-out. Then rain came in and stopped play again. But after the resumption of play, Kohli and Rahane looked solid, but jaffa from Woakes trapped the Indian skipper caught behind. But once Kohli departed, Indian wickets started tumbling down until they bowled out on 107. Ashwin top scored with 29 while Kohli made 23. Anderson grabbed another five-fer in Test cricket. Woakes claimed 2 on his comeback game, while Curran and Broad picked up a wicket each.
