New Update

With the 1st match going in the favor of England by 28 runs, India will look to make a comeback on their home turf in the 2nd test at the Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Stadium, Visakhapatnam. 

Contrary to everyone's expectations, the first match turned out to be a high scoring where both the teams crossed the 400-run mark in both innings and at the end, England emerged victorious on the back of Ollie Pope's scintillating knock of 196 runs. England are now leading the series by 1-0 and will look to strengthen their grip on the series by 2-0. 

On the other hand, the Indian team would be low on confidence after suffering a close loss in their backyard even though they managed to get a lead of 190 runs in the 1st innings. In another big blow to India, their two key players KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja have been ruled out of the 2nd at least and Virat Kohli will be unavailable due to personal reasons. Therefore, India could try some new faces in the 2nd test and of either or both can get their test caps tomorrow against England.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Dr Y. S. Rajasekhara Stadium in Visakhapatnam is known for providing favourable conditions for both batting and bowling. Typically, the first two days offer conducive settings for batsmen to accumulate runs, while spinners start to come into play on the third day, influencing the dynamics of the entire test match. 

Historically, the average score for the first innings on this ground is 478 runs, prompting both captains to opt for batting first to amass substantial totals. However, considering India's recent strategic choices, there is a possibility that they might present England with a challenging turning wicket, especially since they are trailing in the series after the loss in the first test.
