Lord's Test can make or break the series for India: Gambhir

A video of England cricket fans chanting and clapping in front of India's team bus have gone viral on the internet in which, the English supporters can be heard saying, "where's your Virat Kohli gone, we have James Anderson..."

In spite of India's 31-run loss, Kohli made all the right noises following his Herculean batting effort at Edgbaston.

The second Test match between India and England begins today, August 09 onwards.

However with India's batsmen severely tested by England's seamers in the first Test, and England usually more comfortable picking a seam-dominated attack, it would not be surprise should Woakes ultimately be named in the final XI, his overall chances of selection perhaps slightly lower than Moeen's but not by much.

Woods has partnered a variety of players over the years, including Furyk four times at the 2006 Ryder Cup in Ireland. I think my best chance since Valhalla was at Carnoustie, but in golf you just have to be an eternal optimist.

"Ollie Pope will come in and bat at four", said Root.

Worst yet to come: David Gower looks dejected after losing the Lord's Test to India in 1986. "So, this is the make or break of the series", Gambhir said. Chasing a target of 194 runs to win, India were bundled out for mere 162 runs.

"It's not like we're getting rolled over - every Test match that we're playing is competitive", he added. At the same time, your batsmen need to make runs.

"Every time you turn up here the surfaces can be quite different".

Mr Cunningham refused to allow them back inside as it was past closing time, Bristol Crown Court heard. I took exception and said "leave it out" and "you shouldn't be taking the piss because they're gay".

Earlier, Team India captain Virat Kohli had also stressed upon the fact when he was asked regarding the Indian batsmen.

But Kohli, the newly crowned No 1 Test batsman in the world, knows that his team are one slip-up away from going 2-0 down with three to play - a deficit that has been overturned only once in Test history. We as a team definitely have more patience than other people and so, we don't take something as a pattern soon. "The frustrating thing about last week it wasn't poor batsmanship (sic) that got me out, it was a poor passage of play in terms of running between the wickets".

"But when it comes to the wickets falling quickly, it more of a mental aspect than technical - like how you think about a situation after wicket falls".

"There must be a clear plan on how to face the first 20-30 balls, and more often than not that plan does not involve aggression. We need a little bit more composure there and that, as a batting unit, we have discussed". 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. "But we only need to bring down the margin of error and beyond that we don't need to worry too much".
