India vs England highlights 2nd Test, Day 1: Yashasvi Jaiswal plays a shot on the first day of the second test match between India and England, in Visakhapatnam

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

It hit his gloves and rolled back onto his stumps The debutant was looking good but now he has to take the long walk back for 32.

Feb 2, 2024 3:02 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Anderson in top form

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: India are scoring at over 3.5 runs an over but Anderson's economy rate is below 2. There is a reason for that. It's not that India went into a shell against him. But so good he has been with his lines and lengths that it has been very difficult to get him away. Take this as an example: In the 71st over, he got one past the bat of Jaiswal, a batter nearing 150. An absolute genius at work.

Feb 2, 2024 2:54 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Jaiswal on a roll

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: SIX! “Could well be a contender for the shot of the day,” said Dinesh Karthik. Jaiswal has some brilliant shots today but this one is better than his best. He charged down the track to get to the pitch of the leg-spinner from Rehan Ahmed and drove it uppishly over extra cover. It was so well-timed that went for a six.

A ball later, Ahmed was guilty of overcompensating his length and Jaiswal camped on the backfoot to cut it past point for a boundary.

Feb 2, 2024 2:45 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Singles ticking

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Jaiswal and Patidar have started from where they left off. The only difference? Lack of boundaries so far. One of the major reasons for that has to be Jimmy Anderson. He has given nothing away. But Patidar and Jaiswal have continued to take the odd single.

Feb 2, 2024 2:35 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: The third session is a go

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Jaiswal's session

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Jaiswal is showing in this innings that he is not just a T20 dasher, which may have been the impression to a lot of those who haven't seen him bat before in the first Test. Just as what he did in the first session, Jaiswal took his time getting back in the groove after scoring his centuries and looked as fluid as ever going into the Tea break.

Feb 2, 2024 2:13 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: TEA! India 225/3 in 63 overs

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: 122 runs in this session and just one wicket, which was that of Shreyas Iyer. Root shakes Jaiswal's hand as he walks off, what an innings this has been from him and he looks far from done. Patidar has looked nice and secure in his debut innings. Jaiswal has scored 125 in 185 balls while Patidar is on 25 off 47. Hartley took the solitary wicket of the session and the partnership between Jaiswal and Patidar has reached 46 off 74. The first session may have been shared but this one has certainly gone India's way.

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Hello there! Patidar with as confident a reverse sweep as you will see off the first ball of the 59th from Root, quite similar to all those India copped from Ollie Pope in the first Test.

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Rehan Ahmed seems to have been warming up since the past hour now but Stokes hasn't looked the poor lad's way. Root to bowl the 57th now, Patidar on strike on five off 21. Jaiswal at the other end on 117 off 169. India's scoring rate has fallen off a cliff since Iyer's dismissal.

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Fifth ball of the 52nd from Bashir is a bit too full. That's enough for Jaiswal to latch on to, he hits it inside out along the ground between mid-off and extra cover. A single off the next ball and Jaiswal is on 109 off 161, Patidar on two off five.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 186/3 in 52 overs

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Here is the debutant. He has been around for a long, long time in the domestic circuit and has a chance now to show what he has got. India need a big partnership here. Jaiswal may have scored a century but this is the kind of pitch in which India should be scoring something close to, or beyond, 500. And for that, there needs to be one more century. India cannot leave any runs on the field against this England side, as was seen in Hyderabad. Jaiswal currently on 104 off 158.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 180/3 in 51 overs

Feb 2, 2024 1:28 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Oh this has stayed low and there wasn't enough room either as Iyer went for the cut shot.

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: SIX! CENTURY FOR JAISWAL!

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Of course he gets to his 2nd Test century with a six. This hasn't been the wild-eyed frenzied innings we saw in the first Test. He has been measured and made sure to punish the bowlers whenever anything full came his way. Jaiswal gets to the mark in 151 balls.

Feb 2, 2024 1:18 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Rehan warming up

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: The only time Rehan Ahmed has touched the ball today has been while fielding in the outfield. For now, Hartley continues to to bowl his 15th over. Jaiswal on strike on 94.

Feb 2, 2024 1:02 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Well Hartley overpitches the next two deliveries and both of those go to the boundary again. The first shot is drilled between the bowler and mid-on, then he sends it to the right of mid-off. Jaiswal keeping them all along the ground and so no risk whatsoever. He races go 85 off 136 with those shots.

Feb 2, 2024 1:01 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: FOUR! Some luck for Jaiswal!

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Second ball of the 45th from Hartley, Jaiswal tries to cut it off the backfoot, it takes an outside edge and darts to the left of Joe Root at slip.

Feb 2, 2024 12:38 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: First boundary of the session and it has come from Iyer's bat. Second ball of the 38th from Root, almost a bouncer length delivery from Root that sits up nicely for Iyer to pull to deep square. That's a dolly of a delivery.

Feb 2, 2024 12:36 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Anderson building pressure

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Just 10 runs in the six overs of this session. Anderson has given just five in his three overs. A lot of dot balls and Iyer missed a big slap shot off the fifth ball of the 37th from Anderson. Then came a very, very, very close leave to end the over with the ball floating above off and middle.

Feb 2, 2024 12:26 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Hartley replaces Root

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Jaiswal and Iyer have made their way down from the dressing room and are sitting at the Indian dug out. India need a big partnership from these two and they certainly need Jaiswal to get a big one. This pitch seems a lovely flat road at the moment and they need to cash in. They didn't cash in when they had the advantage in the first Test and well, everyone knows how that ended.

India vs England Live Score, 2nd Test Day 1, IND vs ENG: Anderson 9 wickets away

India vs England Live Score 2nd Test, Day 1: The 1st session

India vs England Live Score 2nd Test, Day 1: Honours even pretty much at the end of that first session. India, particularly Rohit Sharma, were too cautious at the start of this session and the skipper paid for it. Shoaib Bashir got his scalp and that ended a 40-run opening stand between him and Jaiswal. Then came a very good looking 49-run stand between Jaiswal and Gill that came in 68 balls. Gill finally looked set for a big total but was then undone for the sixth time by the genius of James Anderson. Jaiswal and Iyer have put up 14 runs off 13 balls thus far for the third wicket.

India vs England Live Score 2nd Test, Day 1: LUNCH! India 103/2 in 31 overs

India vs England Live Score 2nd Test, Day 1: Shreyas Iyer ends that session with a dash of class. Anderson bowls the last ball of the session a little too full, Iyer waits for it to come to him and sends it right back down along the ground. That helps India cross 100 runs for the session. It has belonged to them largely but England not too far behind with those two important wickets of Rohit and Gill. How good has Jaiswal looked so far today, balancing caution and aggression almost perfectly. He has scored 51 in 92 balls, Iyer at the other end on four off seven.
