Rain breaks in cricket bring with them lapses of concentration, something that England could ill-afford as they trailed by 70 runs when the uncharitable rain Gods made their umpteenth cameo in the first Test. A wealth of action was lost on the second day as well, much to the relief of India who were staring down the barrel of a horror collapse. However, India would fancy a prompt resumption this time around with their pace dynamos smelling the blood of an English batting line-up woefully light on self-belief.
Rain has stopped play again, but it looks like it may clear soon. #ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/vN42sBtNuf
