Rain delays start of second Ashes Test at Lord’s

Archer grabbed the attention of the larger global cricketing audience with his exploits in the Indian Premier League before storming into the worldwide cricket scene with his stellar performance in England's successful 2019 World Cup campaign. "I do think it's my preferred format anyway. He's got this incredible ability to solve problems, I'm sure he'll be thinking a lot about he's going to play all the new bowlers who are coming in", Langer said.

The 24-year-old, however, has said that his performance in the World Cup should not lead to unreasonable expectations. "And I think it's been important for him in his return to cricket, I think in the past he's felt a bit that he had to play and had to play and had to push and had to push and in those instances he usually broke at some point".

Josh Hazlewood will play in the second Ashes Test against England at Lord's, Australia coach Justin Langer confirmed after Wednesday's opening day was washed out without a ball bowled.

Jordan expects Archer to be a huge boost to England's Test team and was proud to be there at the start of his journey. I keep saying this - there's nothing you can do about that, just keep smiling and keep concentrating on what you've got to concentrate on and it is what it is'.

England and Australia will lock horns in the second Test match beginning August 14 at Lord's Cricket Ground.

"If guys get me out lbw, I say well played, congratulations but, if I nick one off, that's when I get upset at myself". It's up to the individuals, not so much our game plan against him.

Smith has scored five centuries in his past six Ashes Tests, averaging 139. You have ample changes to do it in a red ball game. "Like we've talked about a long time, we've got to keep wearing him down, and get him back into his second or third and fourth spells". Just go out there and do what you do best'.

"We've got to be really ruthless with it, stick to it". "We're rapt to be here, we love playing cricket at Lord's". Kasper (Michael Kasprowicz), (Jason) Gillespie and (Glenn) McGrath and they were so disciplined.

"We have got a very good seam attack and he gives us different options. That strategy is going to be important as well", the former Australian opener said.
