IND vs ENG 2nd Test – Indian Batsmen’s Big Test at Lord’s: Will Virat Kohli & other batsmen fire at Lord’s where current Indian batsmen always struggled? – After a draw at Trent Bridge in the first Test, Virat Kohli & co will aim to continue their great bowling performance in the next game at Lord’s cricket ground. But it is their poor batting at the venue which will be a headache for Team India. The likes of Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul have had a torrid run at the Lord’s with only Ajinkya Rahane managing a century.

Virat Kohli: India captain Virat Kohli, who is regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world, is going through a rough patch in his international career. And now he is expected to play at Lord’s where he averages 16.25 which is one of his lowest averages on a cricket ground. In 2014 and in 2018 the India captain played one match each on this ground where he could only score 65 runs. Virat does not have his name on the Lord’s honours board but he would aim to change it this time around and also end his century drought.

IND vs ENG 2nd Test: Cheteshawar Pujara: India’s number 3 batsman Cheteshawar Pujara, will look to get back touch in the Lord’s test as it has been a long time since he has played an impactful knock in Test cricket.

Pujara is also going through a lean patch, he was dismissed by James Anderson on 4 from 16 balls in the first innings of the first Test while he scored 13 runs in the 2nd innings before the rain played spoilsport on Day 5.
