    2nd Test between England [258, 258/5d] and Australia [250, 154/6] finishes in a draw

    England will look to put behind their 251-run defeat at Edgbaston and draw level in the five-match series against Australia in the second Test at Lord's.

    Overview

    England v Australia, 2nd Ashes Test
    Lord's, London
    14 August, 11.00am local, 10.00am GMT

    England's progress on the opening day in Birmingham was dented by James Anderson's injury, as the veteran paceman bowled just four overs before leaving the field due to calf injury. The hosts couldn't seize the advantage, despite claiming a healthy first-innings lead of 90, and Australia had firm control when they posted 487/7 in their second outing.

    Despite that, Joe Root, the England captain, will hope his bowling unit, likely to feature young Jofra Archer, can make an impact against Australia, and in particular, Steve Smith, who scored 144 and 142 in the first Test.

    Australia, meanwhile, will be pumped. Their win at Edgbaston was their first in the opening Test of an away Ashes series since 2005. Apart from Smith's continued excellence as a batsman, Matthew Wade's fluent century in the second innings would've pleased the management immensely. Mitchell Starc, having missed out in Birmingham, is likely to return to the XI, and could prove lethal on Lord's famous slope Ė he took nine wickets in the two matches at Lord's during the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019.

    Remember the last time
    After being reduced to 122/8 on the opening day of the first Ashes Test, Smith led a remarkable comeback for Australia, scoring his 24th Test century to take the visitors to a respectable 284 in the first innings. The No.2-ranked batsman in the MRF Tyres ICC Men's Test Rankings thereafter put up another strong performance in the second innings, this time finding able support in Wade, who scored a steady 110 on his Test comeback, as Australia set England a daunting target of 398.

    Nathan Lyon then exploited the fifth day surface to producing a match-winning spell of 6/49, as the visitors completed a comprehensive 251-run win to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

    What they said
    Jofra Archer, England paceman: "I personally believe in Test cricket you get a lot more opportunities to redeem yourself. In 50 overs, if you donít have a good 10 overs thatís it Ė youíve got wait till the next game. You have ample chances to do it in the red-ball game. Iím probably more ready than Iíve ever been."

    Mitchell Starc, Australia speedster: "We want to win this Ashes. Whether thatís a different bowling attack each game, or the same through five Test matches, itís pretty exciting. We're prepared for all conditions, whether it be flat, green, seaming, swinging, slow, fast. It's exciting to have everyone up and firing and plenty to choose from."

    Conditions
    There is forecast for rain at various points during the match, with temperatures hovering between 14-17įC. Both captains might consider bowling first, given the overcast and breezy conditions expected on Wednesday.

    You’d expect Leach to bowl from the Pavilion end to try to exploit the slope. He’s there to get Smith out so let us see how he goes.

    Bad light, bad weather, toss delay, start and stopping the match every hour due to rain though these are from natural causes these are slowly taking away my interest in watching cricket. ICC needs to find some solution as it is ruining imp matches too.

    While there was no action at Lord's on Wednesday due to frustrating rain, Australia coach Justin Langer confirmed Josh Hazlewood will play when the second Test does get underway.

    As both sides prepared for a delayed toss at 3:30pm local time that would come agonisingly close to be flipped before untimely showers returned, Hazlewood was seen warming up with his teammates while Mitch Starc, the other fast bowler in contention, remained on the outskirts trying to stay warm dressed in his full team tracksuit.

    Langer said Hazlewood's economical bowling style, that has yielded him 164 Test wickets at 27.14, gave him the edge over Starc after the right-armer narrowly missed out on selection for the Ashes series opener to veteran seamer Peter Siddle.

    "(Hazlewood) has got an outstanding record," Langer said after play on Wednesday, which was abandoned without a ball bowled.

    "He’s built up over the past few months. He missed out on the World Cup because we felt he hadn’t played much cricket.

    "We know he’s an outstanding bowler, we know that the style of play against England that his best and he should execute those plans really well.

    "He has bowled well the last couple of weeks and we hope he does a good job this Test match.

    He added: "Don’t get me wrong, it was a hard decision (picking Hazlewood over Starc).

    "If it comes off we know what we are doing, if it doesn’t we don’t, that’s just the business we are in. It was a tough call."

    Hazlewood enters the second Test having collected 3-35 from 15 overs in Australia's three-day tour match in Worcester last week and has now had five weeks and three matches bowling exclusively with the red Dukes ball to prepare for his Ashes introduction.

    The 28-year-old replaces James Pattinson as the only change to the XI that spectacularly bounced back from an early stutter to win the first Test at Edgbaston by 251 runs.

    Pattinson has been put on ice and is now targeting a comeback for the third Test at Headingley as he eases back into international cricket after three-and-a-half years on the sidelines with injury.

    With the final four Tests of the Ashes scheduled in two blocks of back-to-back Tests, separated by a three-day tour match in Derby, Langer said Pattinson playing consecutive matches is not part of Australia's plan for the Victorian.

    "I think it’s been important for (Pattinson) in his return to cricket, I think in the past he’s felt a bit that he had to play and had to play and had to push and had to push and, in those instances, he usually broke at some point," Langer said.

    "It was really good collaboration between the two of us, that was our deal in Hampshire when we talked about what his progress would be … so he’s fine.

    "He was a little bit stiff after bowling on Monday morning (at training).

    "We knew he would only bowl one of the two back-to-back games, and whilst he’s had eight or nine days (rest), we knew he couldn’t play back-to-back Test matches.

    "We just felt that having pulled up a little stiff after bowling and we thought it would be common sense to keep getting himself hungry and prepared for the third Test."

    With no toss, England's XI is also under wraps, however it is clear paceman Jofra Archer will play.

    The 24-year-old was presented his Test cap by close friend and England international Chris Jordan out in the middle of Lord's moments before the rain returned.

    The rest of England's XI is less clear, but left-arm spinner Jack Leach was seen bowling on the same wicket square where he scored 92 in a player-of-the-match performance against Ireland last month.

    Leach and Archer are expected to be the only changes for England after James Anderson was ruled out with injury while Moeen Ali was dropped.

    Play will start at 11am local time (8pm AEST) on Thursday, with play to be extended at the end of the day to make up for the time lost on day one.

    Is Bayliss really going to pick Curran over Denly?

    Thatís us with three specialist batters. Baylis seems to want to pack the side with allrounders. Stokes will be at #4 which is fine as long as he bats longer and bowls less, He has a good technique. But Curran at #6, seriously?

    Bayliss has to go. He won the WC so job done. Get someone in who can understand test cricket.

    I agree with what you are saying but it is not as Joe Denly can be taken seriously as a test batsman. I can't see him scoring over the 5 test matches.

    England's test match batting is completely lost with just 3 good players in their respective role.

    Root is a good number 3.
    Stokes is a very good batsman for an all rounder batting at 6.
    Bairstow is a very good batsman for a test match keeper.

    Roy, Denly, Buttler have nothing to do even in the squad. Burns is also not good enough but he could have been tried.

    With nice sunshine and clear skies from early morning, and especially with a whole day lost to rain they should have started the game an hour early today and take advantage of the weather this morning by starting at 10am and doing the toss at 9:30am.

    Now with the weather for the next 2 days being as usual with rain and gusty winds it won't be surprising to see barely 2 days of play out of 5.

    Got a feeling that the terrible drop by Khawaja could be very costly, and that Burns may go on to score big.

    Australia are fools not to play Starc

    Last match England scored many runs because of tailenders and today Woakes is scoring runs again. I know Woakes can bat but Strac is the best when it comes to removing no 8 to 11.

    The problem with Butler has been that he has not know how to build a test innings and needs to show the type of patience Stokes has started showing recently.

    Who was gonna remove 1-7?

    Let lyon, Cummins and Hazzlewood take care of that.

    England wouldnít have scored more than 200.

    Well. Looks like Australia are going to rue that decision. England have to be downright awful with the ball to cede the advantage.

    It's anyone game now. Still not sure why Australia opted to bowl.

    They have bowled well but if Smith fails, Australia might collapse to lesser score and had to bat last.

    Australia looks good with Cummins, Hazlewood and Siddle but I feel in next match they will bring in Starc in place of Siddle. This rotation will continue going as they would like to ensure their fast bowlers are injury-free and workload no longer become a matter of huge concern.

    England opener Rory Burns believes Jofra Archer, who was at the receiving end of a barrage of bouncers from the Australians, will be looking to give them a taste of their own medicine on day three of the Lord's Test.

    Archer was not the only one to cop a few blows as the tourists ensured the England tailenders were peppered with short stuff, the attack successfully led by Pat Cummins. Joe Denly was hit on a helmet by a nasty bouncer from Josh Hazlewood, while Chris Woakes was pinged by Cummins. Even Burns, who scored 53 in England's total of 258, got a few blows on his body.

    The batsman said he had been expecting it. "I think Nathan Lyon ran past this morning and mentioned it within about three balls so I was well versed and prepared for what I was getting,” Burns said, about Australia's ploy of bowling short.

    "It’s quite an obvious tactic of what they’re doing so the boys are preparing for it and luckily we can dish out some of our own in this game as well. We’ve got some boys in our armoury that do the same thing so it should be pretty interesting."

    Burns is expecting Archer to lead England's 'bouncer' response. The 24-year-old, who is playing his first Test, was given a rough welcome at the crease with Australia skipper Tim Paine setting a field that did not allow even a single fielder in front of square on the off side and attacking him with fierce bouncers. Archer was eventually dismissed by Cummins on 12.

    "He copped a fair few as well so he’s probably looking forward to getting his own back," said Burns.

    We’ve got some boys in our armoury that do the same thing so it should be pretty interesting.
    Rory Burns

    Although England could get only 258 on the board, Burns believes it is a competitive total and the hosts can pull things back with a good bowling display.

    "It's tight, isn't it?" he said. "I think it's a competitive total but there's probably a sense of disappointment there at the same time. But it's kept everyone interested all day, because it seamed and if they missed their length you've been able to punish it. It's just started to offer a little bit to a spinner too, so I think it's game on, and we're right in amongst it."

    Australia will begin the third day on 30/1 with Cameron Bancroft and Usman Khawaja at the crease.

    What a farcical decision by Paine opting to bowl!

    Could have easily made it 2-0. This might just be the saviour for England this summer considering they dont have Jimmy with them.
