London: India and their frontline batsmen will have history against them when they take on England in the second Test here at Lord’s from Thursday. India have won only two of the 18 Test matches they have played at the venue, considered to be the home of Test cricket. The last of their victories came on the 2014 tour, 28 years after their first win in 1986. India’s top batsmen, skipper Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara don’t have a flattering record at the venue, where the slope can have a great impact and affect a batsman’s stance.

There has been only one century from the six outings made by India’s top three batsmen and that came off Rahane’s bat in 2014. India will also have to look at their bowling combination. It is likely that India may go in with four seamers and one spinner in the Test match as Kohli has made it clear.
