IND vs ENG 2nd Test in London: Weather Forecast

London: After the last day of the first Test match between England and India was abandoned without a ball being bowled, a lot of eyes would be on the weather in London for the second Test of the five-match series. India were on top for the most part of the first Test at Trent Bridge and would look to continue that momentum in the second Test match as well. For India, Shardul Thakur has been ruled of the Test match while Stuart Broad has been ruled out for the remainder of the Test series due to a tear in his right calf.Also Read - T20 World Cup 2021: Hope To Meet India Again in Final, Previous Match Sent A Message That We Are All Humans And It is Just A Game, Says Saqlain Mushtaq

The forecast for the first day of the second Test match is similar to that of Trent Bridge with a few spits of rain possible early on in the day while most part of the day is expected to be cloudy. With clouds in the sky, both the teams will be looking to field first and make use of the overcast conditions. India made full use of the conditions in the first innings of the first Test match by bowling out England for 183 with Bumrah returning with a five-for. The conditions would be similar at Lords with the slope making it even more challenging for the batsmen.
