Sachin Tendulkar will ring the bell to signal five minutes before the start of play on Day One of the second England v India Specsavers Test match at Lord's on Thursday.

England captain Joe Root and India captain Virat Kohli.

But they produced a controlled and efficient performance to secure their third piece of silverware in the past six months. I am so happy for the players and it's good to start with one title by our side.

Neither team have named their final XI, although 20-year-old batsman Ollie Pope will make his England debut. Of the past 10 Tests at Lord's, only four have gone into a fifth day - against Sri Lanka in 2016, New Zealand in 2015, India and Sri Lanka in 2014. Chris Woakes, having missed his home Test, should come back into the England side but Jadeja has a better chance of replacing Hardik Pandya because he brings beans and grit in every department.

Stokes took three wickets on Sunday's fourth and last day at Edgbaston, including the prize scalp of India captain Virat Kohli.

Bad weather set in and never cleared, allowing no opportunity even for the toss and announcement of teams to take place.
