India have most definitely gained the upper hand💪 after finishing day 1 of the 2nd Test against England at Vizag on 317/4👏. More importantly, Virat (151) and Ashwin (1) are still out there😄.
After being asked to bowl first, England started really well - sending back both Rahul and Murali Vijay pretty early🙆. Just when it looked like Broad and Anderson might do some serious damage, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara stepped up😏. The 'ice-and-fire' combo😎 racked up a mammoth 226-run partnership which threatened to derail England completely from this Test⚠. Pujara (119) got to his ton with an uncharacteristic six💥 while Kohli was more restrained on reaching his landmark😉. Pujara finally fell when he chased a wide delivery - the same fate that befall Ajinkya Rahane, who had got his eye in, right before stumps☝.
But Kohli has been ominous in the way he has batted and will be plotting🤔 to carry forward in this vein on day 2 while England recharge after a sapping day of Test cricket😓.
