    Low scoring tests are always the best.

    Hasn’t got the same impact without the soppy looking ginger kid meme.

    2nd test starts today. However, I think it’s got draw written all over it as there’s just too much rain about over London over the next five days. However, if England can get that ball swinging under the cloud, then they could rip through India a bit lively. I’d definitely bowl first in today’s conditions. Jimmy and Curran could get the new ball going all over the shop.

    Draw for me, too much rain for 2 innings each.

    I think you're underestimating how much the pitch will deteriorate. Lords is always bat first, chasing a 2nd innings total of 200+ is always a nightmare

    Complete washout :(

    4 day test and tomorrow’s looking dodgy too. Deffo bat first now. May get to the point where there’s not enough time to score the runs needed in the fourth innings, but there’s always time to take the wickets.

    England bowling first. That’s surprised me a bit, but the weather is very conducive to bowling today.

    Yep, definitely conducive. Vijay clean bowled for a duck first over :D

    0-1, Jimmy swinging like a 60’s hippie nymphomaniac.

    All panicking on betfair, they’ve put thousands on the draw, only to see a wicket go first over. Nerves going already.

    Another belter from Jimmy. That late swing is a killer.

    Damn rain! We was on for a skittling there.

    If we could ******* catch in the slips they’d be 6 or 7 down now.

    Christ, the swing Curran got on that delivery :eek:

    6 down now.

    Don't think they're going to make it to 7.30. Woakes is unplayable.

    Embarrassing really. Three Indian innings and only Kohli has shown any talent at all.

    Thought this was meant to be the best team in the world. Cos England aren't that good a team.

    I honestly believe no team in the world could stand up to England’s attack under these conditions.
