Three half-centuries in four innings for India A on their first-class tour of England this summer were encouraging, too. For us the priority is to win games of cricket.

"Mental discipline will be the key as far as batsmen are concerned going forward in this Test match".

Banned Australian batsman Steve Smith reclaimed top spot in the ICC Test batting rankings from India's Virat Kohli on Monday, despite not having played since March.

Pakistan team celebrate after winning the 2016 Lord's Test. The only conversation we've had is that the only option is to win this game and nothing else. After all, their chief problem across the two Tests to date has not been hard to diagnose, with the next highest score after Kohli's 149 and 51 at Edgbaston an unbeaten 33 from their No 8, Ravi Ashwin, while neither of the tourists' innings in soggy St John's Wood matched the 137 peeled off by Chris Woakes. Now, they face a scenario where they have no margin for error.

Pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah could come back into the side after recovering from a thumb injury. He's an attacking bowler who bowls good lines and lengths. He is very consistent in hitting the areas required at test level. He wants to take the situation front on and basically make the batsmen feel uncomfortable. That's his biggest strength. "Very excited with Jasprit getting fit again".

"Well, it depends on what the surface is like".

"He was one of our finest captains and a great manager, when it came to man-management skills, and as shrewd as anyone you will ever get as a captain". "These things happen with practice", Lamb, who played 79 Tests for England, said. "But both possibilities are there looking at how exciting or spicy the pitch is going to be", he said.

"He is feeling much better".

"These are just things that are created on the outside and people like to make a lot of nothing".

"There are still three Test matches to go, and I think it can turn around if we have the belief that we can do it", he noted. When it's your time, it's your time. With temperatures expected to hover around 11°C and 23°C throughout the match, scattered showers are expected on Day 2 and Day 5 of the Test. We need to focus on this Test match and not think about whether someone's career is on the line. "It's quite a freakish thought to have".
