Virat Kohli led Indian cricket team would expect its floundering batsmen to take more responsibility in pursuit of a series-levelling victory in the second Test match against England at Lord's.
England won the toss and opted to field first. Joe Root led England cricket team defeated India in their 1000th Test at Edgbaston. Now Virat Kohli is all set to face England in the second Test at Lord's.
Rain has stopped play after just 6.3 overs, but Anderson has got England off to the perfect start, claiming the wickets of Vijay and Rahul to leave India 11/2.#ENGvIND LIVE ➡️ https://t.co/e1I98c7CZY pic.twitter.com/aFcAG6TH9m— ICC (@ICC) August 10, 2018
