Lombok natural disaster : Powerful tremors rock Indonesia days after 347 die
Indonesia's disaster agency says the death toll from the quake that shook Lombok island Sunday evening has risen to 131. The Indonesian Red Cross said it had set up 10 mobile clinics in the north of the island.

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.

England have yet to decide whether Chris Woakes, a fellow pace-bowling all-rounder, or off-spinner Moeen Ali will replace Stokes.

India could make changes in the playing XI.

After India's struggles with the bat in the series opener, Cheteshwar Pujara could be recalled to the team to provide greater solidity at the top of the order.

After the best Test match in England for years, despite the rush to castigation on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, the weather may ensure that we are in for another adrenaline-fuelled nipper.

England lead the five-match series 1-0 after completing a thrilling 31-run victory at Edgbaston last week in Birmingham.
