India lost the first test by 13 runs and is 0-1 behind in the five-match test series. The second test will be played at Lord’s from August 9. The tourists are likely to play the best XI to win the game.
However, in the previous game, the batting department looked completely dependent on Virat Kohli.
Cheteswar Pujara might come back to play at his original position in the second test while R Jadeja could feature in place of Umesh Yadav to add batting depth.
Here is the expected playing XI for team India in the second Test:
