India vs England Live Cricket Score 2nd Test Day 2 Live Streaming: Frustrating the two teams, incessant rain washed out the entire day one of the second cricket Test between India and England at Lord's on Thursday. Early Lunch has been taken.

Only four Tests between an Asian team and England have ended in draws.

England held their nerves in the neck-and-neck first Test as India fell short of 31 runs.

The hosts are leading the series 1-0, but will be without their marquee player Ben Stokes, who is busy with his hearing in court. Pacer Chris Woakes was drafted into the squad as Stokes' replacement.

Neither team have named their final XI, although 20-year-old batsman Ollie Pope will make his England debut.

Tendulkar, who played his first match against England at the Lord's, thereby missed an opportunity to join an elite list of Indian cricketers - Sunil Gavaskar, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Dilip Vengsarkar, Rahul Dravid, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly - who have had the honour of kick-starting proceedings at Lord's by ringing the bell. Barring the Indian skipper, rest of the batting unit failed to perform and as a skipper, Virat is finding it hard to get the combinations right. He smashed his first Test century (149) in the first innings and a 51 in the second innings as wickets kept tumbling at the other end.

Virat and Kohli and his side came to Lord's with the aim to level the series after losing the first Test against England at Edgbaston.
