The Second Test between India and England begins in Vizag as both teams will look to get their nose ahead after a drawn test match. In spite of the match going to a draw, it was England’s game throughout and India had to rescue the game without even attempting to win it.
India’s team look consolidated with a set batting line-up which should only have a change in KL Rahul coming in for the veteran Gautam Gambhir. The bowling line-up looks as though it shouldn’t change much although Mishra should be wary of Jayant Yadav who may sneak ahead of him and join Ashwin and Jadeja.
England may have come in as the underdogs, but they have proved that they have not come as mere spectators, they have come to win. They should go in with an unchanged XI a part from somebody making way for fit again bowling spear head, Jimmy Anderson.
