Pitch report

Lord's, London

Traditionally, the wicket at Lord's is a good one for batting. But with the new ball it always offers something to the seamers. Spinners would also get some assistance as the match progresses. Altogether, a sporting deck!
Weather

Mostly sunny but chances of scattered rain.
