India vs England 2nd Test Live Streaming Star Cricket in India

India vs England Live Streaming Star Cricket

A lot of things going in everyone's mind about the pitch, about the first test and about the feud between Anderson and Jadeja. Adding flavours to the test series, we are all set to witness another big test at the Lord's - India vs England 2nd test match. Before we preview this second test, just to let you all know, India vs England 2014 live streaming cricket is available on official Star Sports website and live telecast can be enjoyed on Star Sports channels in India.

The first test served good heavenly track for the batsmen but it didn't work in interest of cricket of the crowd. Such pitches don't produce results; hence the biggest concern in the second test stays to be the nature of the pitch. Couple of tweets from Michael Vaughan and Stuart Broad indicated that the pitch might help England more than India. But the key would be to bat first and post a good 400 plus total on the board.

MS Dhoni is not too keen on the pitch. He said the team is open to all kind of pitches so just bring it on! He had a brave opinion saying they have seen a lot of flat tracks in the sub-continent. They want to see some pace, bounce and swing which can expose his youngsters to cricketing conditions away from home.

The feud between Jadeja and Anderson is getting messy. Dhoni is in no compromise mood. While Captain Cook feels this is all strategy to pressurise England, Dhoni is firm on his stance. He believes they can't bear any behaviour that lacks sportsmanship. The whole issue begun when umpire turned down Anderson's caught behind appeal against Jadeja. Anderson allegedly pushed Jadeja and that is where the matter grew. Now it is upto ICC to charge Anderson and Jadeja with code of conduct. Anderson or Jadeja may face more than a match's ban.

As far as the playing XI is concerned, it is believed to be the same as test one. Cricket fans would love to see Ashwin in second test but Dhoni may give Jadeja and Binny another chance. Conditions here at Lord's can favour swing and Binny may come into picture. Jadeja comes in handy with his spin and bat too.

England lacks a quality spinner to take full advantage of the pitch here at Lord's. Moeen Ali can't be considered as a full time spinner and Cook can't be too confident about him. So he would still rely more on his pacers like Broad and Anderson. Hopefully Jordan gets a chance today.

A lot depends on the performances of this test. Team that manages a win here might have an upper hand in the remainder of this series. Just wait and watch is all we can say apart from enjoying quality cricket at the home of this game.

Time for some Indian summer in England. After more than five decades, India is set to play a five test match series in England. With only three test series wins in England, expecting another one with such a young raw team would be a big ask. But you never know! These youngsters are fearless. Whatever may be the outcome, but the series is bound to be enthralling. Can't wait? It all begins soon as India vs England 2014 live streaming will be available on ESPN Star Cricket network in India. Enjoy live cricket streaming, telecast and score on Star Sports website and Star Sports HD TV channels. Adding to it the Indian fans can enjoy live cricket commentary in Hindi and English. Sky Sports will provide live streaming of this series in the UK.

India vs England 2014 test series schedule is as follows:
1st Test Match - India vs England - 9 to 13 July 2014
2nd Test Match - India vs England - 17 to 21 July 2014

4th Test Match - India vs England - 7 to 11 Aug 2014 
5th Test Match - India vs England - 15 to 19 Aug 2014

This is followed by ODI and T20 series. We will keep you updated about that. Don't worry!

There is a lot on stake in this series. As we all know almost every single person that follows English cricket has criticised Alastair Cook. England team hasn't seen too many good days in recent past. The biggest one came recently when England lost to Srilanka in a test series at home. Critics say this opens up a bright opportunity for confident and young Indian team to register their fourth series win in England, which we again believe is a big ask and a big task for India.

On the other hand we have MS Dhoni who celebrated his birthday a day before this post is being written. He has his bitter memories about the 2011 test series here in England. And when England visited India in late 2012, again India suffered test series loss. In short, England is the toughest competition for India in test series since 2011.

Indian bowlers are way inexperienced for English conditions and hopefully they can create some magic. Indian batting line up looks highly confident and hence more impetus would be laid on the bowling effect. Many news had flown in recently about tracks being created in England that would support the batsmen. That somehow gives a relief to the Indian camp. Less bounce would give more confidence to the Indian batsmen. 

Forecast would be gloomy with light showers throughout the series. Hope we get a full fledged five test match series without any interference from the watery clouds. 

Can Cook's XI recreate the magic of 2011? Or will it be the other way round? Can India wipe off the 2011 scars and register wins with the confident bunch of youngsters? Cricket doesn't get as exciting as this! Don't miss the Big Test on Star Sports!

India vs England Warm up Match - Leicestershire and Derbyshire Live Updates

India vs Derbyshire Warm Up Match Live Updates

Time for the England tour! India kicks off the England tour this time with good amount of warm up matches to get used to the English conditions. The first warm up match is against Leicestershire and the next being against Derbyshire. Catch all the action live on Star Sports in India.

Last time Indian team was humiliated with a whitewash in the test series. Things have changed a lot since then but the memories are still fresh and daunting in the minds of Indian fans. Indian team never looked like winning in the last tour even in the presence of greats like Sachin, Dravid and Laxman. Dhoni was scoring consistently in that tour and that is a big plus point for the team. 

Dhoni knows the challenges his team will face this time in England but he feels this time they have a better opportunity with a lot of time to get accustomed to English cricketing conditions. With a lot of youngsters in the team it would be harsh to expect a lot from the team but they have the potential to create some upsets in England.

England team lost a series at home to Srilanka and they are down in confidence. Captain Cook is under scanner and lot of criticism. He has to bounce back hard this time if he has to save his captaincy and even his place in the team. Moeen Ali has been a great find for England recently. He bowls well and can bat for long with scorecard rotating. Chris Jordan is capable of providing breakthroughs to the team. Broad and Anderson are always successful in the English conditions.

Meanwhile India has a long batting line up but a rather inexperienced bowling attack. If the batting clicks well they would expect some support from the bowlers to bowl England out twice.

Before India gets into business for a five test series, they play Leicestershire and Derbyshire in a three day match. That will give all the youngsters and opportunity to get a knack of the bounce, pace and spin of the wickets.

Stay tuned for more updates as ESPN Cricinfo and Star Sports will keep providing you live scores, streaming, news and updates.
