Kohli is shying away.

According to reports, the team-sheet was leaked online on Thursday, August 9, even as rain washed out the first day's play of the ongoing second Test at Lord's Cricket Ground in London. After the best Test match in England for years, despite the rush to castigation on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, the weather may ensure that we are in for another adrenaline-fuelled nipper.

Joe Root's men, meanwhile, will hope to break England's winless jinx against Asian teams at the home of cricket.

The big question for India will be if they will play two spinners, after having played R Ashwin as the lone spinner in the opening Test.

Republicans have been hesitant to request those records, however, and have accused Democrats of engaging in stalling tactics. Hatch and other Republican senators criticized Democrats for their attempts to obstruct the confirmation of Kavanaugh.

Officials later confirmed they would look to conduct the toss at 10:30am on Friday, with a view to an 11:00am start and that 98 overs, rather than the standard 90, would be scheduled for the second day in a bid to make-up lost playing time.

India are trailing 0-1 in the five-match series after losing at Edgbaston by 31 runs. In fact, an hour after the game was called off for the day, the sun peeped through the clouds for the first time.

England have yet to decide whether Chris Woakes, a fellow pace-bowling all-rounder, or off-spinner Moeen Ali will replace Stokes.

Update: Virat Kohli makes two changes to the playing XI that featured at Edgbaston.
