England will be without Ben Stokes for the crucial Test while young batsman Ollie Pope is set to make his debut.
Here, we take a look at some interesting stats ahead of the second Test which starts on Thursday.
6 – wickets James Anderson is away from 100 wickets at Lord’s. The swing ace has 94 scalps from 22 Tests at the ‘Home of Cricket’.
1 – Only one bowler has managed to pick up 100 or more wickets at a single ground in Tests – Muttiah Muralitharan at Colombo, Kandy and Galle.
3 – Ishant Sharma needs six more wickets to become the third Indian pacer to pick up 250 or more Test wickets.
4 – wins and as many defeats in the last 10 Tests at Lord’s for England. That includes two defeats to Pakistan and one to India.
36 – Tests as captain for Virat Kohli. India have never fielded the same XI in successive Tests under Kohli’s leadership.
42 – India’s lowest-ever Test total of 42 was posted at Lord’s in 1974.
In six out of 67 Tests Virat Kohli has been India's top-scorer in both the innings (incl. incomplete innings). Sachin Tendulkar also had six such instances in his career of 200 Tests.— Rajneesh Gupta (@rgcricket) August 4, 2018
Clearly, India are more dependent on Kohli now than they used to be on Tendulkar. #ENGvIND
67 – runs India opener Mural Vijay needs to complete 4,000 Test runs.
136 – number of Tests played at Lord’s – the most at any ground. Melbourne comes in second at 110.
687 – Ollie Pope is set to become the 687th cricketer to play Test cricket for England. He will play at Lord’s after making his first-class debut last year.
