India vs England highlights 2nd Test, Day 1: Yashasvi Jaiswal batted through the entire day to put India in a strong position in Visakhapatnam. He remained unbeaten on 179 as India reached 336/6 at stumps on Day 1 of the second Test at the ACA-VDCA stadium. Jaiswal was far more measured in the early part of his innings than in the first Test, biding his time and waiting for the bad balls with opening partner and captain Rohit Sharma at the other end. Rohit had won the toss and chosen to bat first. He ended up becoming spinner Shoaib Bashir's maiden Test wicket after which Shubman Gill joined Jaiswal and continued on the watchful approach. Eventually, though, the former switched gears and was looking primed for a for a big score when he was undone by the genius of James Anderson. England were then pegged back by a 90-run stand between Jaiswal and Shreyas Iyer, with the pair seeing India through to Lunch and then keeping them steady for much of the first half of the second session. Iyer couldn't convert his start though, falling for 27 off 59 to Tom Hartley. This brought debutant Rajat Patidar to the crease. He was dismissed in the final session by Rehan Ahmed for 32....Read More

Rohit earlier confirmed at the toss that Patidar will be making his debut as a replacement for the injured KL Rahul. Additionally, India have also decided to play Kuldeep Yadav as opposed to going for the all-round option of Washington Sundar in place of Ravindra Jadeja while pacer Mohammed Siraj has been rested and Mukesh Kumar takes his place. Patidar was handed his maiden Test cap minutes before the toss, thus ending speculation about whether it would be him or Sarfaraz Khan who will get to play.

After the first Test ended in four days, the action moves to Visakhapatnam – Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA stadium being the venue – where the second game of the five-match series starts today. India were dealt a shock in Hyderabad by England and then were handed a couple more blows in the days since that first Test ended. However, coming back from 1-0 down in a home series is not something they haven't done before, even in the recent past in which they have been so dominant at home. India had lost the first of the four-Test series the last time they hosted England and then went on to win it 3-1.

However, India have a couple of complications to deal with in the form of the in-form KL Rahul being ruled out along with all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. The latter's absence could particularly sting the host with Jadeja being crucial to the team's cause in Test cricket with ball, bat and in the field in recent years. Kuldeep Yadav could get a chance to feature in the squad. He has missed 56 of India's 64 Tests since making his debut in 2017. He has been patient to wait for his opportunity which are hard to come by. But the second Test could give him a window that he has been eagerly waiting for. Another frontrunner to replace Jadeja could be Washington Sundar. While Kuldeep may have more experience, Sundar is arguably a better fit as Jadeja's replacement because of the fact that he is a genuine all-rounder. And of course, there is no Virat Kohli either.

And now the biggest conundrum of them all. The battle between two youngsters for a place in the XI. Jadeja's injury not could, but will make the way for Sundar, but just who will replace Rahul is a throw of the dice no one can predict. In an ideal world, Sarfaraz Khan's ability to play spin better than most youngsters in India makes him an obvious chance, but don't forget Rajat Patidar found a place in this squad before him, making him the likely choice. Both spoke about their dreams of representing India, and one's would pretty much set to come true today. As for the third youngster, Dhruv Jurel, he too is expected to warm the bench after KS Bharat's participation was confirmed following his appearance in the press conference on the eve of the match. He spoke about how India are keeping chill and that despite the defeat in Hyderabad, the atmosphere is relaxed.

After clinching a 28-run in the first Test, England have named three frontline spinners - Tom Hartley, Rehan Ahmed and Shoaib Bashir, who lack a bit of experience. Jack Leach who holds the highest experience is on the sidelines due to a knee injury. In his absence, Joe Root would look to inspire the team and pick up wickets if the young spin trio fail to rise to the occasion. Veteran pacer James Anderson is also back in the squad in place of Mark Wood. This is his sixth Test tour of India and he would have played at least one game in all of them. Legend indeed.

Here are some highlights around India vs England 2nd Test Day 1 here:

  • India have won the toss and chosen to bat first
  • Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal were off to a watchful start
  • Shoaib Bashir got his maiden Test wicket in the form of Rohit, who fell on 14
  • Shubman Gill threw away another good start after nicking a James Anderson away-going delivery.
  • Yashavi Jaiswal scored his second Test century.
  • Shreyas Iyer and debutant Rajat Patidar were dismissed after getting off to good starts.
  • Debutant Shoaib Bashir got his second wicket, removing Axar Patel.
  • KS Bharat too was dismissed for 17 but Jaiswal stood firm at the other end as India ended went to stumps at 336/6
