The nature of a pitch plays a major role in determining the fate of a test match. The surface of the Lord’s Cricket Ground usually helps the bowler’s seams and swings. Seam bowlers always participate in the game with a persistent line that keeps the batter on their toes. On the 4th and 5th day, there are ample rough patches and spinners will also participate in the game.
In the second test between England and India, there is no doubt that one of the two teams will take the lead in this series. Both teams have their own concerns to address. England faces a top-order struggle, but India’s middle-order hasn’t fired in test cricket for some time. However, with steady momentum, team India could start as a favourite and win the second ENG vs IND road test.
