Daunting task ahead for England in Visakhapatnam - Cricket World TV

Chetan Narula rounds up the action from the first couple of days of the second Test between India and England in Visakhapatnam.

After India won the toss and elected to bat first, they went on to post a massive 455 and Chetan has high praises for Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 167 and 119 respectively.

Even though England bounced back through Moeen Ali with wickets of Kohli, Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja, the pair of Ravichandran Ashwin and Jayant Yadav added 64 runs for the eighth wicket to take India past the 450-run mark, which according to Chetan is a safety in this wicket.

England struggled to deal with the spinners in their first innings with only Joe Root managing to get past a fifty. They reached 103 for five at stumps on day two, trailing India by 352 runs and Chetan feels they are in deep trouble.
