India vs England, Highlights, 2nd Test, Day 2 at Chennai, Full Cricket Score: Hosts lead by 249 runs at stumps

16:39 (IST)

A dominant day in office for the Indians, starting with Rishabh Pant adding some valuable runs to guide England to 329 before Ravichandran Ashwin’s five-for helps the hosts blow the Englishmen away for just 134, collecting a massive lead for themselves. And with the kind of start they’ve got in their second essay, they should be a pumped side mentally at the start of the third day — which could very well be the day the match gets over.

That’s it from us in our coverage of the second day’s play. Meanwhile, a West Indian outfit missing several of its key players pull off a thrilling 17-run win over Bangladesh in the second and final Test to complete a 2-0 sweep over the Tigers, leading to delirious celebrations in the Windies camp! Check out the full scorecard and highlights here.

With that, we sign off for the day!

16:32 (IST)

After 18 overs,India 54/1 ( Rohit Sharma 25 , Cheteshwar Pujara 7)

Rohit rolls his wrists after taking a couple of steps forward, guiding the ball towards midwicket for a single off the fourth delivery. Pujara blocks the remaining deliveries, and with that it’s stumps on Day 2 of the second Test!

Just the solitary wicket lost by the Indians in what has been a good session for them, one in which they managed to restrict England to a lowly 134 to grab a 195-run first innings lead before going past the fifty-run mark.

16:26 (IST)

After 17 overs,India 53/1 ( Rohit Sharma 24 , Cheteshwar Pujara 7)

Back-to-back maidens for the visitors as Pujara remains defensive in Moeen’s seventh over of the innings. Another over’s scheduled to be bowled after this.

16:24 (IST)

After 16 overs,India 53/1 ( Rohit Sharma 24 , Cheteshwar Pujara 7)

Appeal for stumping off the penultimate delivery of the over, with Rohit the batsman in question, is taken upstairs. Rohit’s backfoot though is planted firmly inside the crease at the time of Foakes whipping the bails off. Maiden for Leach.

16:22 (IST)

After 15 overs,India 53/1 ( Rohit Sharma 24 , Cheteshwar Pujara 7)

Tidy over from Moeen, conceding just one off it with Rohit sweeping the ball through midwicket off the fourth delivery for a single.

16:17 (IST)

After 14 overs,India 52/1 ( Rohit Sharma 23 , Cheteshwar Pujara 7)

Rohit’s adjudged lbw this time by umpire Nitin Menon, but gets it overturned as UltraEdge spots an under-edge off his bat. Pujara, meanwhile, ends the over with a boundary that brings up the team fifty.

16:16 (IST)
four

FOUR! Pujara brings up the team fifty with a boundary off Leach, cutting the ball square with precise timing! IND 52/1

16:15 (IST)

After 13 overs,India 47/1 ( Rohit Sharma 22 , Cheteshwar Pujara 3)

Rohit gets hit on the helmet grille while attempting a sweep off the first delivery, thanks to the extra bounce generated off the surface. Meanwhile, the umpiring's under the scanner yet again after England go upstairs for an lbw appeal against Rohit. The batsman presses forward in defence with the bat tucked behind his pad, but the TV umpire as well as the on-field umpire believe he’s offered a shot, and the reveiw subsequently ruled out with impact ‘Outside’. The Englishmen though, believe there was no shot offered by Rohit as the pad was sticking well out in front of the bat, which is what the commentators also agree with. Just the one off this over, with five overs left to be bowled today.

16:05 (IST)

After 12 overs,India 46/1 ( Rohit Sharma 21 , Cheteshwar Pujara 3)

Leach with the breakthrough as he traps Gill leg-before in the second delivery, with the batsman going for the review after being advised by Rohit, which turns out to be wrong call in the end as they get three reds. Cheteshwar Pujara does walk out to bat after all after staying off the field all day long, getting off the mark with a treble after driving the ball square through the off side. Single to Rohit off the last delivery.

16:01 (IST)
wkt

OUT! Gill's risk-laden stay at the crease comes to an end as he's trapped leg-before by Leach, the decision appearing plumb to the naked eye. Rohit however, thinks the ball would be drifting down leg and urges him to review. HawkEye shows the ball to be hitting middle and leg, leading to India burning their review early. IND 42/1

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 2nd Test Live Updates: A dominant day in office for the Indians, starting with Rishabh Pant adding some valuable runs to guide England to 329 before Ravichandran Ashwin’s five-for helps the hosts blow the Englishmen away for just 134, collecting a massive lead for themselves. And with the kind of start they’ve got in their second essay, they should be a pumped side mentally at the start of the third day — which could very well be the day the match gets over. With that, we sign off for the day!

Day 1 Report: Sharma, welcomed with chants of "Rohit! Rohit!", hit 161 and put on a key fourth-wicket partnership of 162 with Ajinkya Rahane after India — down 1-0 in the four-match series — elected to bat first in Chennai.

Rishabh Pant, on 33, and Axar Patel, on five, were batting at the close of play after England's bowlers took three wickets in the final session.

Spinners Jack Leach and Moeen Ali claimed two wickets each on a pitch that offered turn even on day one.

Ali bowled skipper Virat Kohli for nought to put India in trouble at 86-3, stunning the raucous 15,000-strong home crowd — present for the first time since the pandemic — into silence.

But Sharma's knock restored the exuberant mood of cheering fans, all of whom backed the home team except for a brave half dozen Barmy Army soldiers.

"It was great fun to have them at the ground. I mean it is something that livens up the whole atmosphere of the stadium," Sharma told reporters.

"When there was no one at the ground in the first Test, the intensity was slightly low from both the teams... I am happy that they witnessed some good cricket today."

His seventh Test century was his first against England. When he crossed 150 in his 36th five-day match he got a standing ovation from the ecstatic crowd.

But Leach broke through with his left-arm spin to send Sharma trudging back to the pavilion in the final session after the batsman holed out a catch to deep square leg.

Sharma, who survived a tight stumping chance — given not out by the TV umpire — off Leach on 159, hit 18 fours and two sixes in his 231-ball stay.

Rahane, who hit form after scores of one and nought in the first Test, soon fell to Ali, bowled on another good delivery by the off-spinner for 67.

Skipper Joe Root chipped in with his off-spin to get Ravichandran Ashwin caught at short leg by Ollie Pope.

"Ajinkya's knock was crucial to the team and so was our partnership. We had put the team in a comfortable position till tea," Sharma said.

"I believe 350 would be good score on this pitch and we still have four wickets left. We hope Pant and Axar can score big and get more runs as we know the wicket will turn more on day two, three and four."

Ali's 'magic ball'

Earlier Olly Stone had Shubman Gill leg before for a duck in only the second over of the day, but Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara steadied the ship with an 85-run second-wicket stand.

But then Leach took Pujara for 21 and Ali's prized scalp of Kohli left India 106 for three at lunch.

Ali bowled Kohli through the gate as the Indian captain stood shocked for a few moments while the TV umpire checked to see if the bail had been dislodged by the wicketkeeper's gloves.

Leach said England are in the game despite a tough day on the field.

"I think it was definitely a hard day. Stone was back and got an early wicket and Moeen got Kohli out with a magic ball," Leach told Channel 4.

"It got a bit easier (to bat) as the ball got older, and you need to get partnerships and that's something we need to hold on to. We were pleased to get wickets in the end and we're in the game."

England made four changes from their opening win with Stuart Broad, Ali, Stone and wicketkeeper Ben Foakes making it into the side.

India handed left-arm spinner Axar Patel his Test debut and brought in paceman Mohammed Siraj and left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav into the team.

Make no bones about it, this was an inadequate pitch. But for most of the 140 overs it lasted, it witnessed incompetent batting by two top Test teams. And that’s what gave us this inconceivable two-day finish at Motera.

Highlights India vs England, 3rd Test at Ahmedabad, Day 1, Full Cricket Score: Rohit's 57 not out guides hosts to 99/3 at stumps

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 3rd Test Live Updates: STUMPS! Leach provided arguably England's big breakthrough in the game when he saw off Virat Kohli for 27 in the night's final over, but altogether, India would be satisfied with how the opening night panned out. England were bowled out for 112, and India are 99-3, trailing by 13 runs. Just that one run from new batsman Rahane came off the final over, with in-form Rohit Sharma (57*) looking quite promising.
