The matches India have lost at Lord’s have all been from huge margins. This time round will be a good opportunity to set this record a bit right though it will take a lot more time to make this record look respectable.

If we take look at what the teams have mostly opted to do after winning the toss is choose to bat. In the 16 matches played, 12 times the team winning the toss as opted to bat first.

The only time when India won match here was because of some good bowling performances by Chetan Sharma and Kapil Dev.

With Dhoni being the captain we can still expect him to do the unexpected. Overall England’s domination at Lord’s over India is clearly seen, it will be interesting to see what will happen this around.
