England vs. India, second Test: Tourists facing defeat at Lord's

England vs. India, second Test: Tourists facing defeat at Lord's

However, the English weather dramatically changed on Thursday morning and continuous drizzle forced the officials to abandon the first day's play. India were 107 all-out in just 35.2 overs. The 29-year old has 57 centuries to his name along with approximately 17,000 runs for India across all the formats.

When play resumed, seamer Chris Woakes, brought in to replace Ben Stokes, who is at a court hearing in Bristol, got the prize wicket of India skipper Virat Kohli for 23 leaving the tourists, who trail 1-0 in the series, at 49 for four.

After his heroics in the first Test against England at Edgbaston, India captain Virat Kohli was at the receiving end on the second day of the Lord's Test for his role in Cheteshwar Pujara's run-out.

Pujara and Kohli were involved in a run out which led to Pujara's wicket and turned the match in England's favour.

Storm-hit PGA resumes with Tiger chasing leader Woodland
Woods has made 15 of them this week, one for every major championship he hopes to have late on Sunday at Bellerive. Tiger Woods had completed seven holes in three under par, with playing partner Rory McIlroy carding seven pars.

Woakes joined Bairstow and, while Shami and Sharma were getting the ball to reverse swing and there was some uneven bounce, the England pair negotiated their way through the tricky spells before beginning to accelerate and bringing up their 100 partnership in the first over of the evening session.

When the first day of the second Test match got washed out, there were a lot of apprehensions about the result as rain was predicted on the rest of the days of the match.

No player has more wickets there at a lower average.

Chris Woakes gave Bairstow fine support as England stretched their lead. The sight of big-hitting Jos Buttler at the crease would not have settled their nerves, but such has been the difficulty to score on the Lord's pitch that Virat Kohli and Co. would have doubtless backed themselves to make early inroads.

Cal Fire Mechanic Killed In Crash On Way To Battle Carr Fire
CalFire noted on its web site that "heavy timber and fuel loading have challenged firefighting efforts" to contain the Carr Fire . The fire has grown quickly because of high temperatures and the area's steep terrain, according to the Cleveland National Forest.

With the sun shining it looked like flawless batting conditions, but the rare rainfall of the previous two days in London still gave the India attack hope they could bowl their side back into he match.

But it was new-ball partner Mohammed Shami who made the breakthrough when Keaton Jennings (11) was lbw playing across the line.

Certainly, not a good time to be Indian cricket team's captain! Root LBW to Shami for a less than fluent 28.
