Most of England was in the grip of a heat wave over the past two months and it seemed like the Indians would get to start the Lord's Test with conditions similar to the sub-continent. Kohli has scored 5754 runs in 67 Tests at an average of 54.28. While the weather continues to play tricks at London, it is not all gloom and doom for the Indians.
That was despite star batsman Kohli making exactly 200 runs in the game, including a superb first-innings 149 - his maiden Test century in England. Moeen Ali could get a chance in Stokes's absence. The visitors' bowling unit impressed, picking 20 wickets for the fourth successive time on the road since the start of the year, but their batting, barring captain Kohli, was a big letdown.
"I think it's going to be an all-round wicket".
Neither side made 300 in the match, England posting 287 before India replied with 274 in the first innings. Just one of England's last 28 Test matches to have been played on home soil has ended in a draw (W18, L9); Joe Root's men have claimed victory in six of their last eight in England (L2). They won a Test here in 2014 under MS Dhoni's captaincy.
Neither team have named their final XI, although 20-year-old batsman Ollie Pope will make his England debut.

Meanwhile, Gomes has been rendered surplus to requirements at Barcelona and has failed to become a regular in the Barca first team.
"I think it's sometimes easy to criticise the batting group but I thought the way both seaming groups in particular bowled was outstanding".
It will also be interesting to see if Cheteshwar Pujara will be called back to the side or not after being left out for the first Test.
Ishant Sharma has taken 4+ wickets in three of his last four Test innings in England; including his five-wicket haul at Edgbaston in England's second innings.
Root's opposite number, Virat Kohli, will hope the rest of his side can come to his aid after he nearly single-handedly kept India in the game at Edgbaston, scoring 200 runs on his own.
"I would consider that as a conservative move", Arun added.
