9.20 pm: Well, that is it. The play has been abandoned on day one without a ball being bowled. Hopefully, we will have play tomorrow.

8.50 pm: We have some bad news. The rain is back. The groundsmen are working hard but the drizzle just won't stay away.

8.30 pm: Some good news. The umpires are out but tea has been taken. The rain has stopped and we are waiting for an official news on the start time.

7.00 pm: Well, it doesn't look good for now. The players have taken an early lunch and the drizzle still persists. There are ground staff on the covers though, but the rain isn't relenting.

4.30 pm: UPDATE: There's a slight drizzle going on at the venue as we speak, toss might be delayed.

Meanwhile, India will be eyeing amends in its batting - save skipper Virat Kohli, who scored a gutsy 100 in the first innings of the opening Test.

Last time, the visitor played a Test at Lord's, Ishant Sharma took seven wickets in the second innings after a brilliant century from Ajinkya Rahane in the first had put  India in command. Will we see a repeat of the game turning exploits?

England beat India by 31 runs at Edgbaston to go 1-0 up in the five-Test series, thanks to an inspired all-round performance from Surrey all-rounder Sam Curran. England would be hoping for a repeat of last Test's heroics from the young left-armer.
