Tom Curran has played 16 matches across formats for England

Surrey's Ollie Pope will make his worldwide debut on Thursday after being named in England's XI for the second Test against India at Lord's, live on Sky Sports Cricket.

Gautam Gambhir feels that the second Test of the five-match series between England and India at Lord's could make or break India's fortunes in the series. He has reached a 1000 first-class runs in just 15 matches and is the first division's stand-out batsman this season with 684 runs at 85.

Kohli top-scored in both India innings at Edgbaston with 149 and 51, but the next biggest contribution was Shikhar Dhawan's first-innings 26.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Price in India Leaked ahead of Today’s Launch
According to early revelations, the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage of the model will be flawless as the entry point for the new model. The Xiaomi Mi A2 is certainly an interesting smartphone from a company that prides itself with a lower field failure rate.

The makeup of India's side remains more of a mystery, the tourists so far remaining tight-lipped about their team for the second Test. No other batters supported Kohli, who at the other hand fought valiantly.

Having lost the closely-contested first Test by a margin of 31 runs, skipper Virat Kohli indicated that his team could field two spinners to capitalise on the pitch when it is worn out while speaking at a press conference ahead of the second Test. Stokes, who picked up four wickets during India's second innings, is trying to clear his name in court after being charged with affray following a brawl in September 2017, while Malan has been dropped due to poor performance.

Here is the video where you spot Arjun running into bowl to Kohli in the nets at the Merchant Taylor school ground, where Arjun plays his cricket in the UK. It's a tempting thought to field two spinners but we will have to take a call on that depending on the team balance.

Oil Rises After OPEC Sources Say Saudi Crude Output Fell
USA sanctions on Iran's energy sector are set to be re-imposed after a 180-day "wind-down period" ending on November 4. Observers have dismissed Trump's call for Saudi Arabia to abruptly increase oil production as political "noise".

'He's obviously batted at six for Surrey this season, ' said the England captain. It was Sam Curran, who made runs, otherwise, England were 70/7 (87/7).

'Ben Stokes is unavailable, but Chris Woakes, with some extra matches and practices under his belt, can now return to the England squad after injury'.

However with India's batsmen severely tested by England's seamers in the first Test, and England usually more comfortable picking a seam-dominated attack, it would not be surprise should Woakes ultimately be named in the final XI, his overall chances of selection perhaps slightly lower than Moeen's but not by much.

China, Germany defend Iran business ties as US sanctions grip
Tuesday's sanctions target Iran's purchases of US dollars, metals trading, coal, industrial software and the auto sector. The Trump tactics have deepened an already serious economic crisis in Iran, fuelling protests around the country.

Apart from this decision, England's bowling line-up looks set with James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Sam Curran and Adil Rashid. The uncapped Essex seam bowler Jamie Porter again misses out from the squad of 13.
