Ashes 2019: Rain washes away the first day of the Lord's trial



The last time the whole day of cricket ash was washed out was an oval test in 2013

The first day of the second Ash Test between England and Australia was abandoned without throwing the ball because of the rain of the Lord.

Weather break allowed to plan the start at 15:30 BST, only to intervene further rain.

You have to quit and the teams are not named.

However, Jofra Archer's bowler hat was presented with an England team hat, which confirms that he will debut in the tests.

At Jordan's request, the presentation was made by Chris Jordan, his teammate from Sussex.

Like Archer, Jordan was born in Barbados and helped bring his debutant to the English game.

Jofra Archer played in 14 one-day international matches

The warm-up in England seemed to indicate that the versatile Sam Curran would be a player from the 12-man team who would miss, meaning batter Joe Denly and left-handed spinner Leach would play.

Even if England decided on the team on Wednesday because it has not yet been confirmed, they can still make changes.

Australia also has a 12-man team, and melche melody fans Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood compete for a place in XI.

Tourists, owners of Ashes, lead the 1-0 series after winning the 251 races in the first test in Edgbaston.

Due to a full 90 flights lost due to weather on the first day, an additional eight flights will be added to each of the remaining four days.

However, further disturbances are possible with a larger rainfall forecast on Friday and Saturday.

Clean weather is announced on Thursday when the Lord will become red for the Ruth Strauss Foundation, a charity founded by former England batter Andrew in honor of his late wife who died of lung cancer last year.
