– India has lost each of the last four Tests led by Virat Kohli.
– Joe Root has won 26 Tests as captain of England – most of every English captain in tests alongside Michael Vaughan.
– R Ashwin needs two more gates to get past Harbhajan Singh (265) and become the second highest wicket taker among all Indians at home.
– The last The time before this series, when India lost their first Test at home (against Australia in Pune in 2017), they won the series 2-1.
England (plays XI): Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Daniel Lawrence , Joe Root (c), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes (w), Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach and Olly Stone
India (XI play): Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (w), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Siraj
India’s skipper Virat Kohli: It’s a good wicket. Day 1 will be good for hitting. We expect it to slow down from day 2. There’s a reason we played the combo in the last game. Washi missed, Axar makes his debut. Bumrah was rested. Siraj comes in for him. Kuldeep comes in too.
England’s skipper Joe Root: We would have fought first too. We have to try to get early. Hopefully we can make some progress this morning. He needs to have as much free time as possible with Jimmy. We got great first innings runs, it will be a different challenge here. We did the hard work. Chris Woakes is the one to be missed. Olly Stone comes in.
The pitch looks very different. The pitch is dry and has not been rolled well. It will be a key roll to winning, and the side that wins wants to beat first as it dissolves and offers spin. Geoffrey Boycott believes current team management should be « ashamed » of how it has dealt with the testing career of Jonny Bairstow, who was rested for the first two games in India.
Former English batsman Kevin Pietersen sees no threat to Virat Kohli’s captain for the foreseeable future but can understand the growing debate about that India lost four consecutive Tests under his leadership.
England had previously announced a 12-man squad for the second Test against India in Chennai, which included both pacer Stuart Broad and all-rounder Moeen Ali, the neither played in the first test. The strange man on this list, however, will be announced by Captain Joe Root in 30 minutes.
Hello and welcome to The Chepauk for the 2nd test. Here’s a look at the canvas for the game. Thoughts? @Paytm #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/36NK1mvJ9d
India vs England Live Score, Ind vs Eng 2021 2nd test in Chennai: India won the litter and decided to hit first. Axar Patel makes his test debut, while Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav also perform for India. For England, Olly Stone replaces Chris Woakes.
Preview of the second test: England will launch a new tempo attack for the second test, with Jofra Archer excluded due to an elbow injury and James Anderson making way for Stuart Broad as part of the rotation policy. England announced their 12-man squad for the second test match, which also includes Moeen Ali and Ben Foakes.
Foakes will be putting on wicket-keeping gloves for England instead of Jos Buttler, who has flown back to England .
Archer had an injection in the joint, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced Thursday, and the team expects to be fit for the third test in Ahmedabad from February 24th.
Archer felt uncomfortable in his elbow in the 227-run win in the First Test, also held in Chennai.
« The problem is not related to a previous injury, » said the ECB, « and it is closed hope that the treatment will allow the condition to calm down quickly. «
India will most likely include Axar Patel in the second test, making way for Kuldeep Yadav. It will be interesting to see if the hosts make changes in the loft department.
According to a report on the New Indian Express, the track is expected to be more friendly for the second test. The pitch can spin by itself from day 1, unlike the first test, to completely knock the throw factor out of the equation. In the first test, the pitch was friends with Ishant Sharma and said it was like bowling on a street. India struggled to pick wickets for the first two days, and by the time they came out to strike the field had started spinning on the third day. The loss of the throw in the first test led to a test match in India.
The second test is very important for India. You cannot go to Ahmedabad for the final two Tests as they are in the 0-2 series. India needs a win from the standpoint of the World Testing Championship too. You need at least a 2-1 lead to make the final clash with New Zealand at Lord’s.

The second test between India and England will take place from February 13th to 17th, 2021.
