India's playing XI for 2nd Test vs England leaked?

Azhar Mahmood and Virat Kohli

If I hadn't got the runs and we had won, I would have got a totally different feeling - that's a very natural aspect of playing team sport. The Indian batting needs to step up for that to happen as no player except Kohli looked comfortable enough to survive for long enough in the Birmingham Test.

There have been talks about bringing Pujara back into the scheme of things to bring some solidity and if that happens, Shikhar Dhawan or KL Rahul will have to sit out. Ajinkya Rahane scored a first innings hundred to help India recover from 145 for seven, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took six wickets in the first innings and Ishant Sharma seven in the second as England wilted against the short ball. "If we tweak a few things here and there we should be on the right side of the result".

"We really need to look at any change in strategy, depending on the wicket". "As a batting unit we have discussed that".

The second England-India Test match is yet to get underway here at Lord's, but it seems like the playing XI's for both the teams have already been leaked.

Meanwhile England have revealed that new boy Ollie Pope will bat at No.4 on his debut.

Uncapped Essex paceman Jamie Porter has been omitted from a 13-man squad, with England yet to decide whether Chris Woakes or spinner Moeen Ali will replace all-rounder Ben Stokes, who misses out due to his ongoing court case.

Backlash follows the addition of popular film Oscar category
We'll address points 1 and 3 in a bit, but it's point 2 - the new category for popular film - that's getting people talking today. The first big change is that they will dedicate themselves to making sure the show is done in three hours.

"I think it's going to be an all-round wicket".

"I know that might be seen as quite a big jump".

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

In Pope they have a batsman who has been in superb form for County Championship leaders Surrey so far this season with 684 runs at a huge average of 85.50, including three centuries and a top score of 158 not out. Joe Root and his men would start confident thanks to their win in the first Test.

"I'm looking forward to him, more than anything, just going out there and being himself - and playing exactly as he has done throughout this summer".
