Live score: England vs Australia, Ashes 2019 2nd Test Day 2: Australia 30/1 at stumps, trail England by 228 runs

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of day two of the second Test of the 2019 Ashes between England and Australia at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, London on Thursday. The start to the second Ashes 2019 Test between England and Australia was off on a wrong footing as constant rain washed out the opening day at Lord’s. But with a slightly better weather forecast on Thursday, we should be able to get an entire day’s play.

Day 1 washed out

Jofra Archer received his England Test cap but was still to make his debut as rain saw the first day of Wednesday’s second Ashes 2019 match against Australia abandoned without a ball bowled at a soaking wet Lord’s.

Chris Jordan, a Sussex team-mate, presented Archer with the cap in England’s pre-match huddle ahead of a revised toss at 3:00pm local time (1400 GMT) — only for further rain to delay the start once again.
