History Beckons at Lords
India takes on England at Lords and with all seniors back in the team everyone will get to witness a very good Test match series.
The most awaited Test Match Series between India and England is going to be on finally and the wait is over. After a low profile India-West Indies series the seniors are back.Zaheer Khan, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh will provide solidity in the Indian line up who were resting or nursing from injuries for the West Indies Tour. Unfortunately Sehwag is not yet fit to play for few matches. All eyes will be on young Abhinav Mukund who won his place ahead of Murali Vijay just because Sehwag was not fully fit and India needed an opener else Virat Kohli would have surely retained his place in the middle. It will be interesting to see if Yuvraj Singh is given a chance or Mukund will play as an opener or will it be Dravid opening the batting to make way for Yuvraj in the middle.
India have won only one Test at Lord's i.e. way back in 1986 and it will be very interesting to see if Dhoni's luck continues and if it does India could win the Test Match here. It will be more interesting too witness a series of Centuries at Lords. The ones being ,
is one short of 100th International Century. Sachin also does not has a century at Lords. So it will be a history in making if he gets his 100 here.
India's playing their 100th Test against England.
Duncan Fletcher is one short of 100 Tests as coach.
The curtains will unveil at Lords in England on 21st July 2011 and we will get to see a tough battle between 2 good teams i.e. India an England.
