India vs England Highlights, 1st Test Day 2:

India vs England Highlights, 1st Test Day 2: Jadeja (81 batting) and Axar Patel (35 batting), who added 63 runs for the unbroken eighth-wicket stand, are at the crease at stumps. India's lead has now swelled to 175 runs, and England would find it tough to wipe that out once their turn to bat comes on the third day. Jadeja and KS Bharat stitched a good partnership. Bharat eventually fell on 41 off 81 after which Ravichandran Ashwin fell due to a terrible mix-up with Jadeja. This has brought Axar Patel into the middle and he started with a four off the very first ball that he faced. Jadeja crossed his half-century and then raised yet another 50-run stand for India with KS Bharat soon thereafter. The hosts have kept up a good run rate for much of the day, particularly for a large part of the second session. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer put up 64 off 106 balls and then Rahul put up 65 off 74 balls with Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja and Rahul in particular were ruthless against the England spinners who struggled for any kind of consistency. However Rahul missed out on scoring a century, falling on 86 off 123 and after that, Jadeja reined himself in. India still have some batting left with Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin in the hut. England had started the second session but it was undone when the spinners lost control of their lines and length soon thereafter....Read More

England had a lot of positives in the morning session, with Joe Root dismissing the dangerous Yashasvi Jaiswal on 80 in the first over of the day and Tom Hartley finally finding a reason to smile by getting the wicket of the struggling Shubman Gill. Shreyas Iyer then stuck in the middle with Rahul and saw India through to Lunch.

The first day was as entertaining as one expects this entire series to be and it ended with India as much in control as they are expected to be in the series. However, there was also enough promise in it for England with the bat, with captain Ben Stokes leading a remarkable rearguard action to take them to a score of 246 on what seems to be a pitch that was giving a lot of assistance to the spinners already.

However, the problem for England after that was Jaiswal doing a Bazball on them and racing to 76 off 70 balls at Stumps on Day 1. Jaiswal and India captain Rohit Sharma smashed 80 runs in just 12.2 overs before the latter fell to Jack Leach off a rather rash shot. Sbubman Gill, though, came in and played an innings of the opposite nature, watchful guarding one end as Jaiswal continued to go big guns at the other. Gill will start Day 2 on 14 off 43 balls and India are 119/1 in 23 overs, trailing England by 127 runs.

Jaiswal took a special liking for England debutant Tom Hartley. The 24-year-old spinner has ended up shipping 63 runs in just nine overs. Moreover, England will have to spend the rest of the Indian innings without DRS with Stokes burning through all three inside the first 14 overs itself. England opener Ben Duckett later admitted that they did not expect this kind of aggression from Rohit and Jaiswal. Earlier, the visitors had two good partnerships from their top five and Duckett was part of one of them. He put up an opening stand of 55 off 72 balls with Zak Crawley as the pair plundered runs from the initial overs bowled by pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj. The next good partnership was between Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root, who put up 61 off 105 balls for the fourth wicket.

England were losing regular wickets after that partnership was broken in the second session but Stokes held it together and made an attacking 70 off 88 balls. He was the last England wicket to fall. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin took three wickets each while Axar Patel got two. Bumrah ended up being among the wickets, picking two for his own with the second being an unplayable delivery that dismissed Stokes.

  • Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel have taken India to 421/7 at Stumps on Day 2. They lead by 175 runs.
  • India lose two quick wickets. Bharat is out LBW followed by the run out of Ashwin.
  • India's lead has crossed 100
  • Ravindra Jadeja has become the fourth Indian batter to score a half-century
  • KL Rahul has been the highest scorer for India thus far with 86 off 123
  • India have had four partnerships in this innings that has gone past 50
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal started with a four off the second ball of the first over from Joe Root
  • However, Jaiswal fell to Root two balls later on 80 off 74 balls.

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Some banter between Gavaskar and KP

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: There is some banter going on between Sunil Gavaskar and Kevin Pietersen regarding the nature of this Hyderabad pitch. Gavaskar says teams should come expecting that the ball would turn from Day 1. His comments came after KP said the way Jadeja was turning the ball right from the onset was not a good reflection of a Test pitch.

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Important runs

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 7 runs of that Mark Wood over - four of them leg byes but these are all very important runs for India. They now lead by 139 and if Jadej and Axar can manage to bat till Stumps today, it will be another dominating day in the office for the hosts.

Jan 26, 2024 3:59 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Axar looking good

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Silken cover drive from Axar Patel. Gets to the pitch of the ball and drills it past two fielders to collect his second boundary. Axar Patel is too good for a No.9, you would think. He actually is.

Jan 26, 2024 3:35 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rehan Ahmad made a very good effort at the boundary but the replays show that his hand touched the boundary pads while he caught the ball. India are finally down to their last recognised batting pair with Axar Patel coming in at No.9 and he has hit a four off the first ball that he faced.

Jan 26, 2024 3:32 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: MIX-UP AND RUN OUT!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Oh the spin twins Ashwin and Jadeja end up at the non-striker's end but they have the bats in hand. Ashwin has to go, he stopped short of ground his bat at the crease. Ashwin tucked it to the covers and started running looking at the ball. Jadeja too started running looking at the ball and then suddenly turned back. Both batters were oblivious to each other and now Ashwin has to go. A wicket out of nowhere for England.

Ashwin run out (Hartley/†Foakes) 1 (11)

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: OUT! Bharat's stay ends

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: And finally the DRS doesn't go India's way today. Big appeal against Bharat and the umpire raises his finger. It is that man Root again, he has been asking a lot of questions in this session. Bharat checks his position and then goes for the review. Dragged down by Root but it straightens sharpy, Bharat goes for the sweep, misses it entirely so no bat on it. The ball tracker holds up the umpire's review. Bharat was looking good and he is visibly disappointed with that.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 349/5 in 87 overs

Jan 26, 2024 3:05 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: England take the new ball

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Joe Root will bowl the first over with the new ball. If you have been watching this match while following the commentary in the Indian broadcast/stream, do ignore what Ravi Shastri and Murali Kartik have been saying about England's reviews being reinstated after they take the new ball. That rule was scrapped by the ICC seven years ago. Strange how Shastri missed that considering he coached the Indian Test team till 2021. Kartik can't really be excused either, he has been an active commentator all this while. Jadeja is on 54 off 87, Bharat is on 30 off 66.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 339/5

Jan 26, 2024 2:59 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 50 for Jadeja!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: And there is the sword celebration. The crowd here has been waiting for the last 10 balls to see that celebration. Jadeja runs three and then whips out his bat/sword. He is on 52 off 84.

Jan 26, 2024 2:56 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR! England being hurt by their loose deliveries

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Well this is getting out of hand. Rehan with dragged back delivery for the fourth ball that is just about saved by Mark Wood at the boundary. Then Ahmed drags it back again and this time, Bharat nails that shot. He has moved to 29 off 60, Jadeja still stuck on 49 off 81 balls.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 333/5, lead by 87

Jan 26, 2024 2:45 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: A rare half-tracker from Joe Root and Bharat slaps it across the line to the boundary. A nice freebie there from the former England captain.

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: The players return

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Joe Root to start the bowling in the third session as well, Jadeja is on strike. Here we go then, what can India get up to in this session.

Jan 26, 2024 2:30 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: The second session

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: This is the first session of this match in which less than 100 runs have been scored. It has been that kind of a match. But that doesn't mean the batting was slow by any stretch of imagination. Rahul and Iyer put up 64 off 106 balls and then Rahul put up 65 off 74 balls with Jadeja. Now Jadeja and Bharat have faced 67 balls for 21 runs.

Jan 26, 2024 2:14 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: TEA! India 309/5, lead by 63 runs

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: The scoring rate has gone down since Rahul was dismissed but that is as much because of Jadeja mellowing down now that India are into their last five wickets. This is not going well for England at all at the moment. They need a collapse in the final session to get to parity at the moment.

Jan 26, 2024 2:14 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Last over before Tea now

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rehan Ahmed to bowl it. Jadeja is on 40 off 66, Bharat on 9 off 33.

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: India cross 300

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 72 overs have been done now. Jadeja has reigned in the big shots now, considering the turn that the England spinners are getting it seems pretty safe to say that India stand a chance at an innings victory if they can get their lead past 200.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 303/5 in 72 overs

Jan 26, 2024 1:47 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 70 overs gone

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Jadeja is on 36 off 49, Bharat at the other end on seven off 20. It is Wood and Leach alternating now. India still have two more recognised batters after this. It is this batting depth that has given the Indian top five to bat with the freedom that they have in this innings. The hosts currently lead by 52.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 298/5 in 70 overs

Jan 26, 2024 1:34 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Wood returns

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: And once again, it is Leach who has been taken off the attack. This is quite baffling tactics from Stokes, India have been the most careful around Leach but Stokes has avoided giving him long spells. Or else he could be just changing ends, who knows.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 292/5 in 67 overs

Jan 26, 2024 1:21 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: OUT! No century for Rahul

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Oh how disappointed is Rahul going to be with that. He has thrown away the century after a truly wonderful innings. Rahul sees this dragged back and tries to go big but he ends up putting it straight into the hands of deep midwicket.

Rahul c Rehan Ahmed b Hartley 86 (123)

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 288/5 in 64.5 overs

Jan 26, 2024 1:20 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: SIX!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Well it was only temporary halt to the boundaries after all. Second ball of the 65th from Hartley, Jadeja skips down the track and smashes him into the stands.

Jan 26, 2024 1:18 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: A maiden over

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: The flow of boundaries seem to have come to a temporary halt it seems and Leach managed to keep Rahul quiet throughout the 64th over. Rahul is on 86 off 122, Jadeja on 27 off 34.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 281/4 in 64 overs

Jan 26, 2024 1:03 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR! Another 50-run partnership

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: And like the opening stand between Rohit and Jaiswal yesterday, this has come at a strike rate of over 100. Rehan sends the last ball of the 61st too full outside off, Jadeja drives it through long-off. 52-run partnership now between Rahul and Jadeja off 51 balls. Rahul is on 84 off 110, Jadeja on 23 off 29. India lead by 29 runs already.

Jan 26, 2024 12:58 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: End of the 60th over

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Quite an eventful over. There was a big appeal for a catch at forward short leg off the next delivery after that six and the umpire gave it. Jadeja reviewed almost before the umpire finished raising his finger and sure enough, there was a big gap between bat and ball. Then Jadeja goes for a big one off the last ball skipping down the pitch again. This time he doesn't get hold of it but it lands in no man's land. Absolutely nothing going England's way at the moment. Their spinners, especially their lead spinner Leach, are just not getting any turn and the Indians are sending anything loose to the boundaries.

Jan 26, 2024 12:54 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: SIX! Now Jadeja goes aerial

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Jadeja has dismissed that delivery out of his presence. Leach sends it in full outside off from over the wicket, Jadeja leaps out of his crease and smashes that over deep midwicket. He moves to 17 off 20 with that. India are motoring along in this session now.

Jan 26, 2024 12:44 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: SIX! India take the lead

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: A real stinker of a delivery from Rehan for the fifth ball of that over. A proper half-tracker and Rahul rocks back and smashes it over the bowler's head. Rehan has been good so far but two absolute stinkers means that he concedes 12 in the over. Rahul on 79, Jadeja on three off 10. India now lead by four runs.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 250/4

Jan 26, 2024 12:42 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: SIX!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rahul smacks Rehan back over his head off the first ball of the 57th. A loose one from the spinner and Rahul punishes him for it.

Jan 26, 2024 12:36 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 55 overs done

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rahul moves to 65 with a four off the last ball of that over. He has Jadeja at the other end who is on one off seven.

Jan 26, 2024 12:32 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR! First boundary of the session

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: That is very good indeed. Rehan has been denying the Indian baters any room and this one was tight as well on off stump. Rahul rocked back and plays it through point.

Jan 26, 2024 12:23 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: GONE! Iyer's stay ends

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Iyer goes for the slog sweep off the third ball of the 52nd and holes out straight to Hartley and deep midwicket. Well this has been a good start for England. Ahmed started off with a maiden, Leach did get the ball after that and conceded just one and now the wicket.

Iyer c Hartley b Rehan Ahmed 35 (63)

IND vs ENG Live Score: England 223/4 in 52.3 overs

Jan 26, 2024 12:15 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Back again now

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: The first over will be bowled by Rehan Ahmed. Can we see more of Jack Leach in this session? It is puzzling how little he bowled in the first session and now, it is Ahmed starting out. James Anderson is on the field as a substitute. Rahul on 55, Iyer on 34.

Jan 26, 2024 12:01 PM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: The day thus far

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 27 sessions were bowled today and 103 runs have been added by the Indians. A wicket each for Hartley, Leach and Root.

Jan 26, 2024 11:33 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Time for Lunch, India trail England by 24 runs

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rahul ends the session on 55 off 78, Iyer on 34 off 57. Partnership between these two has reached 63 off 91 balls. The rate at which India have gone about their business has meant that those two wickets that they lost have hardly affected them. England, though, have stayed in the game and they would be looking to push India more when play resumes. Giving more overs to Leach and Root might be a good way of doing that.

Jan 26, 2024 11:30 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rehan goes slightly short for the last ball of the 49th and Iyer skips down the track and belts it back in the bowler's direction. That ball reached the boundary in a second. Iyer is on 33 off 54, Rahul on 51 off 75. Root bowl the last over before Lunch now.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 217/3 in 49 overs

Jan 26, 2024 11:26 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: 50 for Rahul!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Single off the last ball of that over from Root and that gets him to his half-century. Rahul raced to his 40s and since then, he has chosen to just rotate the strike with Iyer settling in at the other end. Extremely well-paced innings.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 212/3 in 48 overs

Jan 26, 2024 11:23 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR! 50-partnership

Jan 26, 2024 11:14 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: India go past 200

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Partnership between Rahul and Iyer has reached 43 now in 61 balls. Rahul is now three runs away from his half century, he has taken a long time to get to this point from 41, Iyer at the other end on 22 off 37. It's Rehan and Hartley bowling now, why Stokes is not giving the ball to Leach and Root more is a mystery. Rehan has been good though and now Hartley bowling the 46th.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 202/3, trail by 44

Jan 26, 2024 11:06 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rehan bowled four deliveries at the kind of length that Iyer couldn't score. And then he bowls a half-tracker for the fifth and Iyer smashes it through long-on. Dot ball after that and Iyer is on 18 off 31, Rahul on 44 off 62.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 195/3 in 43 overs

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rehan Ahmed comes in for the first time today, replacing Hartley. Iyer is on strike on 14 off 25, Rahul at the other end on 44 off 62. The scoring has come down a notch now.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 191/3 in 42 overs

Jan 26, 2024 10:54 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: SIX! Iyer goes aerial

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Short from Hartley for the fourth ball of the 41st. You can't bowl that to Iyer, he absolute clotheslines it over deep midwicket. Moves to 13.

Jan 26, 2024 10:45 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: A long English chat

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Once again, Rahul is on strike with Wood ready to bowl an over and he is having a lengthy chat with Stokes and Root about what kind of field he wants. Looks like they are going to try and get Rahul to play on the front foot at the moment. Rahul is on 42 off 55, Iyer on four off 14.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 179/3 in 39 overs

Jan 26, 2024 10:31 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: An hour of play done

India vs England Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: The crowd is building up now, all those Republic Day celebrations would be done in schools and housing societies. KL Rahul is in fine nick, he is batting on 40 off 51 balls. Iyer yet to get off the mark after six balls though and Wood is continuing. Once again, Iyer is off strike though and Rahul has made merry off the short balls that Wood has sent in.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 173/3 in 37 overs, trail by 73 runs

Jan 26, 2024 10:28 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: FOUR! More for Rahul

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Oh what a shot that is from Rahul, he has moved to 38 in no time. Somewhere between a paddle shot and a slap off another short ball from Wood through fine leg.

Jan 26, 2024 10:26 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: BACK TO BACK FOURS!

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Well Shreyas Iyer is in and England bring back Mark Wood straightaway to use that short ball against him. But it is Rahul on strike and he gets lucky off the second ball as it darted to under Rahul's eyelid and just missed the stumps off the inside off his bat. Then he gets on his toes and sends the ball off the back foot through cover. That second shot needs to be framed.

Jan 26, 2024 10:18 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: OUT! And Gill falls at last

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Tom Hartley has his first international wicket and that should do his confidence a world of good. Shubman Gill on the other hand, was clearly trying to break his run of low scores in this format and this hasn't helped at all. Terrible shot, slapped straight to midwicket.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 159/3 in 34.5 overs

Jan 26, 2024 10:02 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Gill still stuck

India vs England Live Score, IND vs ENG 1st Test Day 2: Rahul has raced to 19 off 26 but Gill is still stuck on 16 off 55. Pietersen on commentary is talking about how Gill is digging himself a hole by not rotating strike enough and he did almost committ hara-kiri a couple of overs ago when he went for an almight heave-ho down the ground. Luckily for him, Stokes lost the ball completely and didn't even see it when it bounced on the ground.

IND vs ENG Live Score: India 145/2
