ENG vs IND Match Prediction Tips | Who Will Win Today Match
London, August 09 at 3:30 PM IST
After an exhilarating start to the five-match Test series at Edgbaston, India would look to bounce back in the conditions that are more suited to them when they meet England at the iconic Lord’s on Thursday.
The touring Indian team would be kicking themselves to let go a major opportunity in Birmingham and would want to put a better performance with the bat. Can they step up to the challenge and play like the number one ranked Test side?
England had their moments in the first and would be as keen on improvement as their counterparts. They would want their openers to contribute more. And, they would want to stop Virat Kohli who almost snatched the game away from them.
Pitch condition: The weather conditions for the fixture are expected to be hot. The surface would be dry and the teams involved might be tempted to play more than one spinner.
Last Test result at the venue: England 184 & 242 lost to Pakistan 363 & 66/1 – 1st Test, Pakistan tour of England, May 24-27 2018
