Skippers speak ahead of second Ashes Test Match

England captain Joe Root expects nothing short of a major improvement when his side take on Australia at Lordโ€™s tomorrow in the second Test Match of their Ashes series.

The hosts were thrashed by 251 runs in the series opener at Edgbaston, outclassed in the second innings after boasting a lead of 90 at halfway.

Australia captain Tim Paine believes his players have seen Jofra Archer at his fastest but admitted there will be occasions when the paceman will prove a โ€œreal threatโ€.
