India vs England, 2nd Test: Rain stops play, India reeling at 11/2

India vs England 2nd Test at Lord's: India lose openers cheaply again before rain stops play on day 2

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.

This was an England sixth-wicket record in Test matches against India, surpassing the 171 shared by Ian Botham and Bob Taylor at Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1980.

India now trail 1-0 in the five-match Test series after a 31-run loss at Edgbaston.

That easy wicket for England left India at 3/15.

Veteran quick James Anderson starred with the ball taking five wickets to help England bowl India out for a paltry 107 at stumps on a rain-truncated second day of the second Test at Lord's here on Friday.

England captain Joe Root was brilliantly run out by Kohli at Edgbaston and the Indian captain mocked his opposite number with his celebration, but the hosts would be laughing last after dramatically recovering to win the first test and they have taken firm control of the second ahead of day three in London.

But, earlier this week, Mr Mattis said he is in "complete alignment" with Mr Trump's concerns about United States space assets. Let's hope that's the branch's new motto because it's pretty much flawless . "Peace only comes through strength", Pence said.

However, the English weather dramatically changed on Thursday morning and continuous drizzle forced the officials to abandon the first day's play.

Anderson, who had generated movement off the seam as well as an impressive amount through the air, finished off the Indians - and secured his five wicket performance - by removing Ishant Sharma.

Captain Kohli hasn't played the same XI in successive Tests for 36 matches, dating back to the 2014 Adelaide Test in which he led India in whites for the first time in his career.

WICKET! Keaton Jennings has been trapped by Mohammed Shami. "For me I find it so much fun when it is like that", said Anderson.

"When we bowl like that we would bowl most teams out in the world, we were that good". Kuldeep Yadav and Cheteshwar Pujara come in for Umesh Yadav and Shikhar Dhawan.

With clouds expected to hang over the iconic cricket ground over the next few days, India may rethink their strategy of playing two spinners.
