The Test match pitch

Lord's TV has taken an exclusive look at the pitch for the second Investec Test between England and Australia which starts on Thursday 18 July.

MCC Head Groundsman Mick Hunt and his groundstaff have worked tirelessly to prepare the wicket for the second match of the Ashes series.

Exclusive look at the Test match wicket

Both sides come into the Test match at Lord's with plenty to think about following England's fourteen-run victory in the first Test at Trent Bridge.

England captain Alastair Cook will have to decide whether to stick with Steven Finn, following a disappointing first Test, or replace the Middlesex bowler with Yorkshire allrounder Tim Bresnan.

Meanwhile, his opposite number Michael Clarke will be hoping things settle down once the Test commences following a turbulent week for Cricket Australia.

Once thing is for certain, it's going to be an absolute scorcher!
