09 August 2018

Malan was replaced by 20-year-old Ollie Pope, who is set to make his debut.

"I know that might be seen as quite a big jump. Depending on the conditions and the team, we'll take a call on that", said Arun.

However, much of the focus will be on Pope who has been talked up as an England prospect after coming through the Lions setup.

"I think he's performed exceptionally well this season in County Championship cricket", Root added. That's a very exciting prospect for such a young man, to have the ability to play in that manner.

Essex's Jamie Porter, named in the squad for each of the first two Tests, has been released once again. The problem this visiting Indian team is facing is that they are heavily dependant on Kohli.

The Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes returns to the squad in place of Durham's Ben Stokes, who faces a court hearing this coming week in Bristol.

India U-19 team member and rising left-arm pacer Arjun Tendulkar was seen bowling to skipper Virat Kohli in the nets ahead of the second Test against England at the Lord's Cricket Ground. It is expected that the groundsmen will shave a few bits before the start of the match but even if they don't, the pitch is likely to turn out quite dry. It's been quite hot in London for the past couple of months.

Kohli (200) nearly scored half of the team's total across two innings while the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, and Ajinkya Rahane struggled against the swinging ball.

"There is good grass cover, (but) that is required basically to keep the wicket together - otherwise it would be very hard to hold it together". "I will tell him to enjoy the occasion and not get too many runs!"

England: Joe Root (c), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jos Butter, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson. England have not lost a five-Test series at home after winning the first Test since 1930, such is the momentum they can build up with batteries of fast-medium bowlers.
