England v India: Rain delays start of second Test at Lord's

Dawid Malan has managed just 74 runs in five innings this season

Following his fruitless 149 in India's opening Test loss to England at Edgbaston, Kohli leapfrogged banned ex-Australia captain Steve Smith, who had been the top-ranked Test batter for more than two and half years.

"That's a sign of some strong characters in our dressing room".

"Every time you turn up here the surfaces can be quite different". Under sunny skies, regularly interrupted by large banks of innocuous high-flying clouds, both sides go through their final practices - as groundstaff get on with all the last-minute jobs that are required to ready the sport's most famous colosseum for match day. That might play a big factor. Will they play a second-spinner or will Cheteshwar Pujara find a place back in the team? "So we have to start well and try to stay on top if we can", he said. Root will wait until toss to decide whether to play a second spinner (Moeen Ali) or an extra pacer (Chris Woakes). 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.

According to Movies Anywhere, since its launch nine months ago, consumers have stored more than 135 million movies on the app. Unfortunately, the service is only available in the U.S. for now, and movie and TV show rentals are not eligible.


"With the surface as it is, having looked at it today, we're going to leave it another 24 hours and then make a decision in the morning".

"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.

"It is purely because we haven't won the games".

Manafort's Lawyers Allege Gates Lived A 'Secret Life'
Manafort was quite upset the money had not been sent", Gates told the court. "Why won't you say it's embezzlement?" he asked. Gates then admitted to having "another relationship" years ago, in which he cheated on his wife with a mistress in London.


"I think it's sometimes easy to criticise the batting group but I thought the way both seaming groups in particular bowled was outstanding". The young man apologetically walked towards the batsman to take the ball back as Rahul regained his composure soon to applaud Arjun and said "well bowled".

India will face England on Thursday at the iconic Lord's Cricket Ground.

Malan made just 28 runs in the first Test but in more painful strikes for the team, he dropped three catches. Meanwhile, there are chances of Kuldeep getting chance in the upcoming Test.

Vehicle bomb kills prominent rocket scientist in Syria
Asbar was not among them, perhaps because he was associated with Syria's missile program rather than the development of chemical weapons.


"It is unfortunate we haven't been able to cross the (winning) line after coming so close, that is the only thing we are looking to, how we cross the line". "It obviously can get better". I am happy for him, as a cricketer, I understand how important it is.
