India vs England 2nd Test: The second Test will be played between India and England at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai from tomorrow. Toss will be held at 9 am and the match will start at 9:30 pm. Team India had to face a big defeat of 227 runs on the same ground in the first Test. In such a situation, Virat and company will take the field with the intention of returning to the series in this match.
Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, Team India has lost four consecutive Tests. In such a situation, it is very important for Kohli to win this test. Actually, there is talk of handing over the captaincy of the Test to Rahane and if the team gets a single defeat under the captaincy of Kohli, then this discussion can get a boost.
Indian team can make some changes
After losing badly in the first Test, captain Kohli can make some changes in the playing eleven for the second Test. Left arm off-spinner Akshar Patel is fully fit, so he can make his debut in the second Test. Also, it is believed that Kuldeep Yadav can also be included in the team in the second Test.
India’s probable playing eleven
Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane (vice captain), Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Washington Sundar / Kuldeep Yadav, Akshar Patel, R Ashwin, Jaspreet Bumrah and Ishant Sharma.
England have announced their 12-man squad before the second Test. In the second Test, fast bowlers James Anderson and Joffra Archer, wicketkeeper Jose Butler and off-spinner Dominic Bais will not be part of the team. He has been replaced in the squad by Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Moil Ali, Ben Fox and Ollie Stone. It is believed that either Vox and Stone will be included in the playing eleven. The rest of Broad, Fox and Ali are scheduled to play.
England’s possible playing XI
Domnik Sibley, Rory Burns, Daniel Lawrence, Joe Root (captain), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Moeen Ali, Ben Fox (wicketkeeper), Jack Leach, Stuart Broad and Ollie Stone / Chris Woakes.
Indian team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane believes that the pitch will be helpful for spinners from day one in the second Test. He told the media before the second Test that in the second Test, the ball would turn from the first day. However, this time there will also be a good bounce on the pitch, because the second test will be played on the pitch of black clay instead of red clay.
