Some real good Test Cricket.
The last time India played England in a Test match at Lord's in 2014, it was a happy hunting ground for MS Dhoni's men as they clinched the country's first win at the home of cricket in 28 years. The play was called off at 4.50 pm local time without a single ball being bowled.
Tendulkar, who played his first match against England at the Lord's, thereby missed an opportunity to join an elite list of Indian cricketers - Sunil Gavaskar, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Dilip Vengsarkar, Rahul Dravid, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly - who have had the honour of kick-starting proceedings at Lord's by ringing the bell.
Play was scheduled to start at 11:00 BST, but steady rain kept the covers on the pitch and prevented the toss at 10:30.
