Meanwhile, after a poor show in the opening Test match against England, the Indian batsmen would like to rectify their mistakes and apply themselves diligently when India will face the hosts in the second match of the five-match series, starting on Thursday.

Watch day two of the second Test between England and India, at Lord's, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) from 10.30am on Friday.

Captain Root confirmed in Wednesday's media interaction that 20-year-old Ollie Pope will be handed his maiden Test cap tomorrow.

Other former India internationals to ring the bell at a Lord's Test are Sunil Gavaskar, The Nawab of Pataudi Jr, Dilip Vengsarkar, Rahul Dravid, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly. We expect Kohli and Co.to give a good performance in the second Test. He smashed his first Test century (149) in the first innings and a 51 in the second innings as wickets kept tumbling at the other end.

England's Joe Root, Stuart Broad, Adil Rashid and Ollie Pope on the players balcony during a rain delay. I do think that a result is still possible if the rain stays away - and that's a big if. "But he's obviously an exciting talent and, with the guys around him, I think he fits nicely into that position in our team". The ringing will signal five minutes before the official start of the play on Day 1 morning.

In Pope they have a batsman who has been in superb form for County Championship leaders Surrey so far this season with 684 runs at a huge average of 85.50, including three centuries and a top score of 158 not out. Can he deliver on the big stage?
