The Indian cricket team is currently playing a five-match Test series in England. If the first Test of the series is drawn by rain, the second Test will take place at Lord’s from Thursday. Before the second Test, players from both teams participated in Tuesday’s Nets session. However, this training is not appropriate for the host England because their main experienced fast bowler Stuart Broad is injured. Brad is now unsure of playing the second Test after being injured. However, one day before the match, Brad’s injury is scanned and a decision is made about his playing.

India were close to victory in the first Test, but England were defeated by rain. England’s batting in the first Test was a complete flop and now they want to start anew in the second Test. India won their last Test at Lord’s in 2014, in which Ishant Sharma bowled superbly. The BCCI posted a video on Twitter in which fielding coach R Sridhar saw his players practice fielding. In the video, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant is seen practicing wicket-keeping and fielding together.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) says Brad has been injured in a calf injury during training. After this, his injury is now scanned and then a decision is made about playing in the Lord’s Test. However, if Broad is not fit, the board says there are plenty of options to replace him. The ECB has said it may allow Mark Wood to replace Brad.
