They can also be made captains.

Arjun, legendary Sachin Tendulkar's son, bowled to Kohli as the latter used the time at the nets to combat the left-arm angle.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted the full-course menu which will be dished out to the players on the first day.

England will be without Ben Stokes while India could make changes too for the second Test starting here at Lord's on Thursday.

India came up with a decent performance in Edgbaston but it was not enough to stop Joe Root's men from taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

The skipper hit 149 and 51 in the 1st Test respectively, however, the other batsmen were not up to the mark.

By the looks of it, out-of-form Shikhar Dhawan would have to sit out. Umesh Yadav was also impactful.

Kepa is second choice for Spain behind Manchester United's David de Gea. "I want to win many titles here". Considered Spain's goalkeeper of the future, he was a reserve at the World Cup in Russian Federation .

But Arun said Jasprit Bumrah was "out of contention", the paceman still sidelined after missing the first Test with the broken thumb he suffered during a T20 global against Ireland in June.

Despite that the team management could make a few changes, bringing in a second spinner to add more firepower, depending on the nature of the wicket at Lord's.

'Dawid Malan drops out of the squad for Lord's.

The 20-year-old Surrey rising star is a direct replacement for Middlesex left-hander Dawid Malan, dropped after two low scores in England's 31-run win in the first Test at Edgbaston last week. Whether England use such tactics and whether they work though, remains to be seen. They were reduced to 80 for seven in the second innings before young all-rounder Sam Curran's attacking 63 rescued them as they reached 180.

In dry English conditions, wrist spin is a premium weapon, particularly against a line-up that hasn't faced Kuldeep much (barring Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler).

The visitors will be keen to level the series at Lord's as England are playing without their premier all-rounder Ben Stokes. Root will wait until toss to decide whether to play a second spinner (Moeen Ali) or an extra pacer (Chris Woakes). 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).

About countering Ashwin and Ishant, he said, "They are two fine players and one of the reasons why India have been successful is they have some brilliant experienced players to call upon".
