With clouds expected to hang over the iconic cricket ground over the next few days, India may rethink their strategy of playing two spinners.

England skipper Joe Root had earlier announced a 12-man squad for Lord's Test. If the weathermen are right, the game should start on time on Friday and it's only on Monday again that there are chances of rain.

They can also be made captains.
