India vs England 2nd Test Day 1

India vs England,Sachin Tendulkar,Virat Kohli

The ringing of the five-minute bell at a Lord's Test by an global cricketer, administrator or well-known enthusiast of the sport is a recent tradition introduced in 2007.

His 4/40 in the second innings helped England take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

England: Joe Root (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Moeen Ali. I do think that a result is still possible if the rain stays away - and that's a big if.

Drawing a comparison with legends such as Brian Lara and Vivian Richards, Waugh said Kohli has shown all the traits of a great batsman.

Powerful quake rocks Indonesia's Lombok, Bali islands
The Bali and Lombok airports continued operating on Sunday night, according to the director general of civil aviation. She added: "It was very scary and we are in Bali , I can't imagine how it must've felt to those closer to Lombok ".


Watch day two of the second Test between England and India, at Lord's, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) from 10.30am on Friday.

Kohli made his first Test hundred in England in Birmingham last week and added a half-century in the second innings, but lacked support from his fellow batsmen. Just one of England's last 28 Test matches to have been played on home soil has ended in a draw (W18, L9); Joe Root's men have claimed victory in six of their last eight in England (L2).

Yet this season has seen Pope make 684 runs for Championship leaders Surrey at an average of 85.5, including three centuries.

Root, frustratingly run out for 80 in England's first innings at Edgbaston, said it was important to put the side's batting struggles into perspective.

NCAA's new proposed rules blindsides NBA, USA Basketball officials
University presidents and chancellors will be held "personally accountable" for any rule-breaking by their athletic departments. Among the changes is the reversal of a rule that has long separated amateur from pro athletes.


India too could make a top-order change with the experienced Cheteshwar Pujara waiting in the wings if struggling opener Shikhar Dhawan is omitted.

Well, bowling coach Bharat Arun hinted the visitors may not opt for an extra batsman and called it a "conservative move". There we need some composure, other than aggression.

But Arun said Jasprit Bumrah was "out of contention", the paceman still sidelined after missing the first Test with the broken thumb he suffered during a Twenty20 global against Ireland in June.

"Everything depends on the conditions - and if the conditions are not going to be as friendly as in the first Test, it makes more sense to play five bowlers".
