Inflows slowed in recent years mainly due to low oil prices, but regional turmoil doesn't help, critics of the government say. Saudi Arabia has invested about $6 billion in Canadian businesses since 2006, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

The last time a day's Test play was washed out completely at Lord's came 17 years ago when the scheduled opening day of the first Test against Pakistan was abandoned on 17 May 2001.

Captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara are at the crease, with bth of them having scored one run each. Talking about the ongoing Test series, India lost the 1st Test at Edgbaston by 31 runs.

With Ben Stokes unavailable because of his court case, either Moeen Ali or Chris Woakes will take his place in the side and bat at No 7. Bowling conditions should be favourable today, but there might only be an hour or two of play. Coming to 2nd Test which is to be played at Lord's India will look to settle score and all eyes will be on skipper Kohli who is in awesome form.
