England and Australia will return to Lord's on day two hoping for better weather after day one of the second Ashes Test was washed out.

The rain started a couple of hours before the scheduled toss and continued uninterrupted until the early afternoon. After a couple of pitch inspections, the umpires called for the toss to take place at 3pm but that plan was short-lived as the rain returned.

England awarded a Test cap to Jofra Archer in that short window between downpours, indicating that the fast bowler was set to make his debut. That will have to wait until Thursday now - and, unlikely as it may be, England could still change their mind before naming their XI at the toss.

Steve Smith boos at Lord's were an 'Ashes foul', says Australia's prime minister

Steve Smith boos at Lord's were an 'Ashes foul', says Australia's prime minister Steve Smith is a "champion" who did not deserve to be booed on his return to the middle at Lord's, according to Scott Morrison.

Disappointingly, the most fun that came out of the first Day of the second Test between England and India at Lord ' s came late in the evening. Two people from the stands ran towards the centre pitch and slid on the covers that had been there the entire day .

UPDATE: Second session also washed out as early tea has been taken on Day 1 at Lord ' s . But India won the last time these two teams met in a Test at the hallowed turf of Lord ' s -- in 2014.
