Not just the cricket fans, but batting Sachin great Tendulkar was also left disappointed after first day's play of the second Test between England and India was washed out due to rain in London on Thursday. Murali Vijay has a new opening partner in KL Rahul.

However, the 45-year-old's long wait ended in vain as the play was called off shortly after Tea.

It was the first time a whole day's Test play in England had been lost to bad weather since 24 August 2013 when the fourth day of the fifth Ashes clash at The Oval was abandoned without a ball bowled.

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. Their last defeat came against Pakistan back in May this year when Joe Root's men were beaten by nine wickets.

What are the team squads for England vs India Test match?

Barcelona Are Offering These Two Players For Paul Pogba
The 31-year-old won two titles at the Etihad Stadium but fell out of favour after the arrival of Pep Guardiola as manager in 2016. Barcelona's offer of Mina as part of the Pogba deal is due to the fact Mourinho is desperate to strengthen his defence.

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.

England lead the five-match series 1-0 after a thrilling 31-run win at Edgbaston.

England have yet to decide whether Chris Woakes, a fellow pace-bowling all-rounder, or off-spinner Moeen Ali will replace Stokes.

If the leaked image turns out to be true, this will be the first time under Virat Kohli that India will be having the same playing XI in successive Tests.
