Ashes 2013 live stream: Watch online free England vs Australia 2nd Test Day 1 cricket from Lord's
The Ashes 2013 series continues on Thursday with Day 1 of the second test between England and Australia. The first test lived up to the much-hyped up Ashes cricket series as the match went all the way to the 5th day with England eventually winning by 14 runs as Australia fell just short of what would have been a record run chase.

As the two teams come together for the second test at Lord's there are even higher expectations for another classic test match between these two rivals.
A morning review of the pitch shows that this should be a good batting wicket where both sides should be able to get high scores, and bowlers may struggle.
England won the toss and opted to bat on Thursday morning, however, they made a mess of the flat wicket, losing three wickets in quick succession to give the Australians big hope to dismiss England cheaply.
Captain Alastair Cook was first to go, LBW to Watson, followed quickly by Root, who was LBW to Harris, and Kevin Pietersen was quickly sent back to the pavilion after edging behind off Harris for just 2 runs.
That start stunned analysts who have described the track as a "road" and has immediately given England fans big concerns going forward. Australia meanwhile have got their tails up and will be hoping to level the series at 1-1 here at Lord's, where they have a very good record.
Trott and Bell steered England to lunch without losing any further wickets, and England are currently just short of 100 for three wickets. England meanwhile still have a long way to go to get out of their rut, and will be hoping to get a first innings score of at least 400 to 500.
