England will be without Ben Stokes while India could make changes too for the second Test starting here at Lord's on Thursday.

India captain Virat Kohli has no qualms over who stars for his side so long as they win.

India were dismissed for under 300 in their first innings at Edgbaston and then failed to chase down a target of 194 second time around, being bowled out for 162 after Kohli made 51. "He's very mature for a young man", said Root.

Since the rain hasn't stopped an early lunch has been taken by the umpires at Lord's.

As latest news come from the venue itself, the toss has been delayed due to a slight drizzle, and it may be later than 11am local time, when the game actually begins.

India have only managed one Test victory in their last 11 attempts in England (D2 L8); they have suffered four defeats in succession there to England ahead of this match at Lord's.

Asian teams enjoy a healthy record at the Lord's. Kohli has scored 5754 runs in 67 Tests at an average of 54.28.

However, India may be looking at bringing back Cheteshwar Pujara into the playing XI.

"There must be a clear plan on how to face the first 20-30 balls, and more often than not that plan does not involve aggression", said Kohli, who was extremely watchful against swing king James Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, at Edgbaston.

Rainy morning in London!

India fans pose for a photograph outside the ground during a rain delay. Since 2014, Asian sides have won three and drawn two Tests at Lord's. We expect Kohli and Co.to give a good performance in the second Test. This has also prompted a rethink in the Indian camp as to what bowling strategy they would want to go in with.

Pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the second Test as he has not fully recovered from a left thumb injury, bowling coach Bharat Arun confirmed on Tuesday.

They also have the option of playing a second-spinner, be it orthodox left-armer Ravindra Jadeja or left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, with all-rounder Hardik Pandya the man most likely to miss out if either slow bowler is selected.
