India vs England Live Score 2nd Test: Cheteshwar Pujara for Shikhar Dhawan? Kuldeep Yadav for Umesh Yadav? Ravindra Jadeja instead of Kuldeep? These are only a few questions Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri have to address ahead of the second Test against England in Lord’s. Things would have been different and India would have played with the same XI had Virat Kohli got some support from his batting colleagues in Edgbaston. As it turns out, India is 1-0 behind in the series and need to level it in Lord’s to stay in the game.
The Indian skipper has hinted that he is tempted to play an extra spinner and it won’t be a bad move on a drier Lord’s pitch. The challenge, however, would be to decide between Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav – with the latter almost being unplayable in the ODI and T20I series. The hosts will be without the services of their all-rounder Ben Stokes and Trevor Bayliss has already warned that replacing him would mean that at least two to three players would have to step up.
