English Men prove their dominance over the home side at the end of Day 2

Date:

Another unexpected day for Indian bowlers. They tried their best to get some quick breakthrough but England’s batting has been really good. At the end of the day 1, England were 263 for 3 wickets.


Joe Root hits a double hundred to add some more to India’s misery on the second day of the first Test match, in Chennai. This double hundred by Joe Root helped England continue with their domination against India, on Day 2 of the ongoing Test match. The visitors were 555 for eight at stumps with skipper Root scoring 218 (377) in his 100th Test match.

 England began the day on a good note with Ben Stokes and Root building a strong partnership. Stokes scored 82 off 118 deliveries. After the departure of Stokes, Ollie Pope (34) made a worthy contribution and supported his captain. 

Meanwhile, Jos Buttler also played a knock, and added 30 runs to the scoreboard. 
Tailenders Dom Bess and Jack Leach are currently unbeaten and will be aiming to add more runs to their side’s first innings total on Day 3. 

India’s bowling department failed make pressure on opposition batsman. Ashwin took the crucial wicket of Pope, with Shahbaz Nadeem registering two dismissals. Senior fast bowler Ishant Sharma also picked up two dismissals. 

India will be targeting to pick quick wickets on Day 3. The home side’s batsmen have a huge task in hand and will need to be at their best on Day 3.
