    England vs India | 2nd Test | Lord's | Aug 9-13, 2018 | Day 3 Thread

    Should be an exciting day of test cricket. England should look to score 200+. However, weather still seems to be erratic. Hoping that it doesn't rain all day

    England will look to bat through the day and get a solid load under the belt.

    India would look to minimize the damage as much as possible.

    How is the weather at Lords?

    Even if we have the same conditions as yesterday, India only have Ishant and Shami. Pandya looks useless and Ashwin and Kuldeep will have to bowl miraculously to get wickets.

    Logically England should end with a healthy and match winning first innings lead.

    Root to score another boring 50

    I am sure we are already behind in this match by scoring 107 and now our bowlers will still create chances but fielders will keep dropping it. England will score 200 - 250.

    India's best chance to win.
    Bundle them out for 150, score 200+ in second innings and ask them to chase 180.

    Pitch expert.... Will the pitch assist the spinners today?

    Cook has only 1 threat, Ashwin... else he will clam a 100 I imagine. Without the benefit of hindsight, I would say England will have a comfortable first innings lead with wickets in hand at the end of the day

    England should try and score 250 odd in 70 overs and declare. If they put their foot down they can wrap this game tomorrow, no point in banking on the weather.

    Day 5 it currently looks like we'll get a whole days play and day 4 looks like we'll get 1-2 sessions. If England can score 300 today then under pressure in overcast conditions tomorrow it's quite plausible India will go cheaply again.

    Are Indians already panicking?

    Kohli doesn't have much experience in coming back from adversity as a captain because having played 80% of his matches on pitches suited to his team, he has had hardly to deal with any adversity. Good learning curve this for Kohli

    It was ridiculous to think the white ball cricket leading up to the Tests would prepare the side for this series. The conditions are completely different - you hardly see the white ball swing an inch in England these days.

    I strongly believe Pakistan's results in England in 2016 and 2018 was due to the thorough preparation and time spent acclimatising to conditions. The Ireland Test especially this year helped battle harden the players in similar conditions before facing England.

    Some good deliveries from Shami to Root there. Right line just missing outside edge.

    Dukes ball does take about 10 overs or so to start swinging. England need to get through to lunch without further wickets.

    Kohli making sure root gets settled & memorable debut for Pope gaining confidence against Pandya & kuldeep as shami is creating problems for Root and not bowled a single delivery to Pope.

    Maybe the Indian spinners should look at Yasir's performance from 2 years ago to see how to bowl successfully here.

    There is no need of pandya we can replace him with bhuvi for these conditions. Bumrah replace kuldeep so we play with 4 pacers + 1 spinner. Bhuvi can bat way better than pandya does.

    Pope looks quality. Forecast for Monday is great so England can still win.

    Kohli bringing back Shami, already proving that he has no hopes from Kuldeep and Pandya, atleast in these conditions.

    These conditions can still be made use of by a skillful bowler. Shami's showing it now and then. That's what makes Anderson such a class bowler

    The pitch has flattened out or Indian bowlers are rubbish.

    Haha Holding got owned. He was harping how Pandya is not an all rounder and he shuts him up immidiately with a wicket

    Good delivery from Pandya - silencing Holding and his critics from the hype circle.
