Virat Kohli questions mentality of Indian top order

Virat Kohli questions mentality of Indian top order

Intermittent rain delayed the start of the second Test between India and England in London on Thursday.

Fans were treated to a stunning first Test in which England's mighty bowling effort saw them clinch the match by just 31 runs. "He is conscious about the need to succeed overseas and has improved immensely since the time his spot was challenged by younger players", the 46-year-old added. The story of the second innings was more or less the same as Kohli top-scored with 51 runs in 93 balls.

Other former India internationals to ring the bell at a Lord's Test are Sunil Gavaskar, The Nawab of Pataudi Jr, Dilip Vengsarkar, Rahul Dravid, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly.

Despite India's overall failed batting effort at Edgbaston, bowling coach Bharat Arun ruled out playing an extra batsman here.

# The last time India played a Test match at Lord's, they had topped England to win the second Test by 95 runs in the 2014 Test tour. 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.

"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.

However, the temperature dropped on Wednesday and it is expected to remain cool over the next few days, with occasional showers as well.

"It's a tempting thought to field two spinners but we will have to take a call on that depending on the team balance". In that scenario, Umesh Yadav can be left out with Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya handling the pace duties.

He will replace Dawid Malan, who was poor with both the bat and at the slips in the first Test. We know that Fifties throwback Ollie Pope will make his debut today but have yet to be informed whether Moeen Ali is back in the side after four Tests out or Chris Woakes returns after missing Edgbaston.
