Here's a preview of the second Investec Test match between England and India at Lord's:
The first Investec Test between India and England eventually ended in a stalemate due to a great show of resistance shown by both teams. Team India recorded an impressive score of 457 in the first innings thanks to Murali Vijay’s brilliant century of 146. India looked like they were going to get England out cheaply but an astonishing 198-run partnership between Joe Root and Jimmy Anderson changed the course of the match.
India recorded a morale boosting win in the second practice match of their long English campaign scheduled till the first week of September. Dhoni’s men chased down 142 runs in the second innings to beat Derbyshire by 5 wickets in the 3-day tour game and are all set for the 5-match Test Series against Alastair Cook’s side.
