Fantasy Cricket: Dream11 tips for 2nd Test-- England v India

The tourists head into the second Test at Lord's starting on Thursday 1-0 down in a five-match series after England won the first Test at Edgbaston by 31 runs last week.

Although the skipper did not indicate towards anyone, the former's "composure" remarks may be his way of subtly reminding Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul, who were both dismissed at Edgbaston while recurrently attempting aggressive shots, of changing their stance at Lord's to give India a better chance of leveling the series.

Virat Kohli and his men though might now have to deal with the seam and swing of the English pacers, under overcast conditions. He's obviously batted at (number) six for Surrey this season but having seen him play a little bit and you know the way his game is set up, I think it's very much transferable to bat at number four in test cricket. 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.

Here is the video where you spot Arjun running into bowl to Kohli in the nets at the Merchant Taylor school ground, where Arjun plays his cricket in the UK.

New selector Ed Smith said upon the selections, "Dawid Malan drops out of the squad for Lord's".

England might have settled on one of their two selectorial decisions, the other will be decided on the first morning, a straight shootout between Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes, with Jamie Porter released from the original squad of 13.

England captain Joe Root and India captain Virat Kohli.

India struggled against the swinging ball, with England finding it hard to combat Ravichandran Ashwin's off-spin.

"We really need to look at any change in strategy, depending on the wicket".

It will be interesting to see who England will turn to in the absence of Stokes.

His 149 in India's first innings was the 22nd century of his 67-match Test tenure.

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. "The frustrating thing about last week it wasn't poor batsmanship (sic) that got me out, it was a poor passage of play in terms of running between the wickets".
