11. Mohammed Shami
As far as Shami is concerned, the pacer would be disappointed with his figures in the second innings but his first-innings exploits where he picked 3 for 28 should be a good confidence booster for him
10. Jasprit Bumrah
He picked up nine wickets in the first Test and India will not drop him anytime soon, given his contributions. They'll be hoping Jasprit can keep up his good form in the second test match.
9. Ishant sharma
In the 2018 Lord’s Test, Ishant bowled 22 overs, giving 101 runs at 4.59, and picked up one wicket. He had missed the first Test due to a niggle, but was seen bowling in the nets.
8. R Ashwin
The young bowling all-rounder who had taken the place of Ashwin in the XI has suffered a hamstring injury. Despite Kohli stating after the first Test that they will continue with four seamers and one spinner, India might be forced to bring back Ashwin.
7. Ravindra Jadeja
Ravindra Jadeja will surely play the second Test match after his 56 run-knock in the first innings, which helped India get a substantial first-inning lead. Having noted that, Jadeja’s role as a spinner was limited in the first Test and that could be the same case for the second as well.
6. Rishab Pant
Rishabh Pant’s 20-ball 25 was good in the first Test, but he must be aware that at this moment his team needs him to come up with a score beyond that to win Test matches.
5. Ajinkya Rahane
Ajinkya Rahane might not really have a lot to prove, given he was unluckily run out in the first Test. He was India’s highest run-getter in the previous World Test Championship cycle, which should be a relaxing factor for Kohli’s deputy.
4. Virat Kohli
Kohli has started the tour with golden duck, but he is too good a player to be quiet for too long. In the upcoming test, India's captain would be confident of living up to his expectations.
3. Cheteshwar Pujara
Cheteshwar Pujara is responsible for holding the entire batting order together from one end. Pujara’s breezy 13-ball 12 in the second innings of the Trent Bridge Test might have settled his nerves slightly after going out for just 4 runs in the first innings.
2. KL Rahul
Rahul, who was brought in place of Mayank Agarwal, is likely to stay in the XI after scoring a brilliant 84 run-knock in the first innings of the Trent Bridge Test. He would take this opportunity as his potential second coming in Tests.
Though Rohit would be gutted by the fact that he was dismissed for the third time in the 30s after batting well, he would look at the Lord’s Test as an opportunity to go and finally convert a start into a big score.Mayank Agarwal, who had missed the first Test after being hit on the head, has recovered.
