India vs England 1st Test Match Lords :- Match Updates & Live Score

Today India will be seen desperate to do what all they can to hold on the Numero Uno status when they play against England in the First Test in Lord’s. But against the tough team like England that has served as unbeatable in last 5 series, it will not be that simple for the Indian side.

Batting has played a very important role for the England team with form of Jonathan Trott and Alastair Cook being superlative. Also, Eoin Morgan gets the opportunity to cement his position while Andrew Strauss, the captain will be very happy to get some runs in Somerset game. The captain has endured poor form in some time but now look to play great Test match level game again.

Even the Indian bowling side has become stronger. But with lack of some pace of the bowlers, it might be a shortcoming in face of Englishmen. It is worth noticing that the Team England will definitely feel somewhat relieved as Sehwag is now out of first two matches. However batsmen such as Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh and VVS Laxman will look forward to dominate all proceedings.

It will surely be the contest between two powerful sides that have been playing well in test format. India is at Number 1 position in the whole world when it comes to test matches and has even won the World Cup 2011 recently.

 

Another crucial milestone that the Indian side will be looking forward to get is the century from little master because he is on verge of now creating another ominous record. Sachin Tendulkar has 99 intrenational centuries so far and in case he makes the hundred in 2000th Test Match, it will be another historic event in the match. Lords hasn’t served as a great hunting ground for Indians but MS Dhoni is popular for changing history and so his role will be praiseworthy if India comes triumphant in the Test Series.
