Looking from where India England Lord's Test stands at present, the match is expected to end on August 15. But, cricket is a game of uncertainties and anything can happen at any time. But, if nothing changes, it is possible that the Lord's Test will be held on August 15 in the hands of Virat and Co. India still has 7 wickets left. And he has 276 runs on the score board. That is, on the second day, if the remaining 7 batsmen together add 250 plus runs, then problems can increase for England. The good thing for Team India is that KL Rahul is standing on the crease. On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane is at the other end, who also has the experience of scoring a century at Lord's. After this Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja have to come. Jadeja scored a half-century in Nottingham. At the same time, Pant is also in excellent form. Therefore, on August 15, if the tricolor is seen waving at Lord's, then it should not be surprising.
