And again before we could see the ultimate battle of Anderson v Kohli in these conditions at Lord's, the rain gods have their say.

Sachin Tendulkar will ring the bell to signal five minutes before the start of play on Day One of the second England v India Specsavers Test match at Lord's on Thursday.

Joe Root's men, meanwhile, will hope to break England's winless jinx against Asian teams at the home of cricket. The weather should be fine for game, but some spells of rain can not be ruled out.

European allies uneasy as United States restores Iran sanctions
Sanctions will also be reapplied to US imports of Iranian carpets and foodstuffs and on certain related financial transactions. And John Bolton, the president's national security advisor, is a well-known Iran hawk who has advocated for regime change.

Play was scheduled to start at 11:00 BST, but steady rain kept the covers on the pitch and prevented the toss at 10:30.

After losing by 31 runs at Edgbaston India will look to square the series at Lord's, a place where they won the last time they played in 2014.

England have yet to decide whether Chris Woakes, a fellow pace-bowling all-rounder, or off-spinner Moeen Ali will replace Stokes. He said the 29-year-old Indian captain and his RCB teammate AB de Villiers had the best batting technique but as the South African cricketer was not playing Test cricket anymore Virat was now the best in the world. Coming to 2nd Test which is to be played at Lord's India will look to settle score and all eyes will be on skipper Kohli who is in awesome form.
