The rain stoppages have really turned out to be a source of frustration among the cricket fans across the world. While the game was abandoned on the first day, the second day has now witnessed the plethora of rain breaks before Indian top order collapse.
The scoreboard read 15/3 before a dramatic runout of Pujara who was looking solid at the crease. The debutant Ollie Pope affected his first dismissal in tests by a proper throw.
It is to be noted that the young Indian sensation Arjun Tendulkar was aiding the Indian batsmen with his throwdowns in the nets. The 18-year old has just completed his maiden international tour against Sri Lanka alongside Under 19 squad who clinched the test series.
The young Tendulkar turned as a groundsman in the middle of the game as he was seen performing their duties by helping them with the covers. His dad, Master blaster Sachin marked his presence in the stands yesterday as he rang the five – minute Lords bell. Also, he is at England for the inauguration of his club, partnered with Middlesex cricket club.
👋 Arjun Tendulkar!

The players have taken an early tea and the heavy downpour continues to upset the fans in and around the world. Can Kohli and Rahane rebuild the innings? Only time will tell
