T-minus 1 day to the Lord’s Test…Matchday is quickly approaching us and England have already made some headlines before the start of the 2nd Test. Spin-bowling all-rounder Moeen Ali returns to the squad for the Lord’s Test, which also hints at the pitch conditions and begs the question as to whether Ravichandran Ashwin will return to the Indian side.

On the flip side, the hosts were dealt a huge blow after Stuart Broad was injured in the practice session just two days before the match. England are sweating on Broad’s availability for the match.

Meanwhile, West Indies and Pakistan will also kickstart their Test series on Thursday.

STOX IN FOCUS

Virat Kohli: India’s captain hasn’t been among the runs off late in Test cricket, at least not the way he always did. A duck in the 1st innings at Trent Bridge puts a bit of pressure on the skipper. Tuesday’s trading saw Kohli lose a bit of his momentum on the CricStox market.

Stuart Broad: England have no shortage of pacers, but the potential non-availability of a bowler with over 500 Test wickets is always a major worry. All eyes will be on whether Broad regains fitness and partners Anderson ahead of the 3.3o pm (IST) start on Thursday.

Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur: There have been many calls for Ashwin’s inclusion in the line-up. Moeen Ali’s inclusion in the ENG squad gives rise to further speculation about India playing their lead spinner. Thakur is the one expected to make way for Ashwin if India does make that call.

Azhar Ali: At a listing price of 38 coins per stock, time to subscribe to the former Pakistan skipper’s IPO is running out.

Yasir Shah: Listing price stands at 40 coins per stock. Hurry up! IPO closes tonight at 11:59 pm.
