Fantasy Cricket: Dream11 tips for 2nd Test-- England v India

And welcome to coverage of day two of the second Test at Lord's after Thursday's dreich and frustrating ordeal.

The match had been due to start at 11:00am local time (1000 GMT) but with rain still falling and the skies above Lord's increasingly dark, the umpires called it a day at 4:50pm (1550 GMT).

The England captain said that Pope will come in as a direct replacement for Dawid Malan, with Jonny Bairstow staying at No 5 and Jos Buttler moving up one place to No 6.

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

Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the Test match and that could mean an unchanged Indian seam attack. There is bound to be moisture in the track when play resumes on Friday and it's most unlikely that Ravindra Jadeja or Kuldeep Yadav will get a look-in.

We feel Shikhar Dhawan too could make way for C Pujara, who was surprisingly left out in the first Test.

It is the first time a whole Test match day has been lost to the weather at the home of cricket since May 2001, against Pakistan. He also made 18,426 runs in his 463 One-Day Internationals, with 49 hundreds.

Anderson & Ishant- These two pacers are likely to pick more wickets for their respective teams.
