One would feel that India should’ve got to that 500-run mark, but if you had asked Virat Kohli at toss whether he would take 455, he would have said yes. England have done well on 2nd day by bundling out the hosts early considering that they started at 317/4. Ravichandran Ashwin’s consistency down the order has been a big positive India, his fifty even today was vital and Jayant did well to score 35 on his debut innings. As soon as he fell, Shami and Umesh went for miss or hit approach and helped India cross the 450 run mark. How will England fare in the first innings? Stay updated with our live coverage.
