India vs England 2nd Test Day 1 live updates

Steely Curran stars as England prepare for life without Stokes

The visitors' bowling unit impressed, picking 20 wickets for the fourth successive time on the road since the start of the year, but their batting, barring captain Kohli, was a big letdown. India will also be anxious about Ajinkya Rahane's mode of dismissals in the first Test, so if he can provide Kohli some support, things can very well change. The first-drop, who has struggled to get going overseas and in the county season with Yorkshire, still has the experience of playing in English conditions. He also amassed 9779 runs in 211 ODIs at 58.2 and 2102 runs at 48.8 in 62 T20Is.

All eyes have been on Virat Kohli and the Indian team management as they are expected to make some bold calls ahead of the second Test between England and India, starting August 9 at Lord's, London.

This is not the first occasion when Arjun had bowled in Team India nets.

Six bombshells from Rick Gates' testimony in the Paul Manafort trial
On the seventh day of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's criminal trial, the prosecution wasn't ready to rest. Downing asked Gates if he recalled telling the special counsel's office that he'd had four different extramarital affairs.

There have been talks about bringing Pujara back into the scheme of things to bring some solidity and if that happens, Shikhar Dhawan or KL Rahul will have to sit out.

India came up with a decent performance in Edgbaston but it was not enough to stop Joe Root's men from taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

India batsmen need to produce a better show in the second Test to give a tough fight to England. Umesh Yadav was also impactful.

'Multiple Diablo Projects In the Works,' Confirms Blizzard
It's unclear what the multiple Diablo projects could be, but the one that's going to take longer to develop might be Diablo IV . So whether you're a veteran to the franchise or a newcomer, there's going to be an announcement that everyone can enjoy.

England, on the other hand, face similar issues in their batting department.

They also have the option of playing a second-spinner, be it orthodox left-armer Ravindra Jadeja or left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, with all-rounder Hardik Pandya the man most likely to miss out if either slow bowler is selected.

Malan was replaced by 20-year-old Ollie Pope, who is set to make his debut. Jonny Bairstow (70) and Keaton Jennings (42) did well in their first innings but the likes of Alastair Cook and Jos Buttler failed miserably in both the innings. They may go in for a like-for-like replacement with the inclusion of pace-bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes, who has recovered from an injury. Moeen Ali could get a chance in Stokes's absence. He picked up five wickets and scored 97 runs to be decisive in the low-scoring contest at Birmingham.
