@kira - Kya lagta hai yeh test Jeetenge?

Dhoni's India won the Lords test in 2014, remember? Can Kohli follow his footsteps? :Giggity:

To even mention dhoni's India alongside Kohli's India is an insult to Kohli, this team is on another level, just wait and watch

From cricinfo:

 

10.05am "The early signs, about half an hour from toss, is that Pujara seems to be in for Shikhar Dhawan," says Nagraj from Lord's. He adds: "Fast bowlers: Ishant, Umesh, Pandya for sure. Kuldeep might just pip Shami."

 

Naga updates from Lord's: "Shami looks to be in." So seems like Ashwin might be the sole spinner again. We'll find out shortly.

Lol 2 spinners and Yadav out. OK. England doing the right thing and playing 4 quicks. Good to see Dhawan out though. That England team suddenly looks very strong in these conditions . Why does this happen only when we tour here?

 

Edit: That was only ganguly's and swann's teams . My bad.

It looks like a one-spinner pitch, says Sanjay Manjrekar in the pitch report. But there might be more for them later. More than anything, the team management will be worried about the weather forecast becuase there is rain expected in London. All said and done, what do you do after winning the toss, having seen the pitch? Bat first.

Says Nagraj, "Cheteshwar Pujara stood in the first slip alongside KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. It was a pretty strong sign that Pujara has replaced Shikhar Dhawan. That is one certain change for India on another overcast day. As for the bowling line-up, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya marked their line-ups leaving the question whether the Indian think tank would consider playing a second spinner in Kuldeep Yadav ahead of Umesh Yadav. Both Kuldeep and Umesh bowled in the nets."

England batting second against 2 spinners.....GOOD!

 

Issue is pace department is weaker, hopefully Pandya steps up.

 

I probably would have dropped Pandya and played Yadav but I can see why he is playing. No problem with this side from a selection pov.
