Continuous rain also meant that even the toss could not take place on the first day. Both teams would return to the ground on Friday with the hope to get the match underway.

Play is expected to begin on the second day but rain could still play some part in the day. The play is set to start at the usual time of 11 a.m. with an extra 30 minutes to be allowed at the end of the day.

The forecast for the next two days (Saturday and Sunday) is much better and we can expect full 90 overs on both days.

Rain is expected to return on Monday - the last day of match - and can have a big impact on the result of the match.

With the rain never stopping long enough for the toss to take place, both England and India have still to name their starting XI.

After India's struggles with the bat in the series opener, Cheteshwar Pujara could be recalled to the team to provide greater solidity at the top of the order.

Thursday was the first time a full day's play has been lost at Lord's since the opening day of the first Test against Pakistan in 2001.
