Lord's Test: India look to settle scores with England

London : India will look to get back on winning track and settle scores when they face England in the second Test of the ongoing five-match here at Lord's Cricket Ground on Thursday.
The Virat Kohli-led side had earlier lost the opening Test by a narrow margin of 31 runs despite the skipper's brilliant batting display.
Chasing a target of 194 runs to win, India were bundled out for mere 162 runs. No Indian batsmen, apart from Kohli and Hardik Pandya, could play an impactful knock in the second innings.
Talking about the team combinations at a press conference ahead of the second Test, Kohli indicated that his team could field two spinners to capitalise on the pitch.
He had also hinted towards changes in the team's lineup in an attempt to plug the gap that was revealed during the Edgbaston Test.
England captain Joe Root, on the other hand, announced Ollie Pope has been called in the squad as a replacement for left-handed batsman Dawid Malan.
Having proved his abilities in the English conditions, it will be a huge challenge for the Indian skipper to lift the team up and guide them to victory.
