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.
