India vs England: Sachin Tendulkar Returns Without Ringing Lord's Five-Minute Bell

Intermittent rain delayed the start of the second Test between India and England in London on Thursday.

Joe Root's men, meanwhile, will hope to break England's winless jinx against Asian teams at the home of cricket.

Day two of the second England-India Test match was halted due to rain on Friday after just 39 balls into the day.

From making his debut for India U-19 against Sri Lanka U-19 in a youth Test, to taking a wicket in his very first over of that match, it has been an exciting time for Arjun Tendulkar recently.


Officials later confirmed they would look to conduct the toss at 10:30am on Friday, with a view to an 11:00am start and that 98 overs, rather than the standard 90, would be scheduled for the second day in a bid to make-up lost playing time.

England will be without Ben Stokes at Lord's because of the all-rounder's ongoing trial for affray in Bristol.

Captain Joe Root had earlier confirmed that the hosts will hand a maiden Test cap to young Ollie Pope, who replaces Dawid Malan. 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.
