Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar supported England's decision to blood youngsters like Sam Curran and Ollie Pope in the ongoing their Test series against India.

He was eventually dismissed by Adil Rashid in the first innings and by Ben Stokes in the second on the individual score of 51.

Kohli, while addressing the press conference on the eve of the second Test at Lord's, said that there are just about a few adjustments batsmen need to make, particularly in how they react to situation after wickets fall down.

Anderson, who had a close shave at a golf session after the first Test when he was hit by the deflecting ball that he clobbered, said he will watch videos to try different things against the in-form batter.

Fallout continues in the diplomatic dust-up between Canada, Saudi Arabia
On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia's national airline Saudia halted all direct flights to and from Toronto following Canada's intervention. Saudi Arabia has ordered all Canadian grain purchases to be stopped, adding it will no longer buy Canadian-origin grains.

India could field two spinners at Lord's, given the recent hot weather, and Ravichandran Ashwin took 4-62 and 3-59 at Edgbaston.

Root added: "He's obviously batted at six for Surrey this season - but having seen him play a little bit, and the way his game is set up, I think it's very much transferable to bat at number four in Test cricket".

The Virat Kohli and co. would have expected to have their full-strength squad for selection for the second Test but in all likelihood, not every single player will be available for selection for the Test that gets underway on August 9. "There is good grass cover on it and that is required basically to keep the wicket together, otherwise it is going to be very hard to hold it together", Kohli explained. "You can't pinpoint exactly what the mindset is when a player goes out to bat". When the wicket wears off spinners can come into play.

"It's definitely in contention". It's a tempting thought to field two spinners but we will have to take a call on that depending on the team balance.
