India vs England 2nd Test: India Won The Second Test By 106 Runs To Level Series 1-1

India leveled the series 1-1 by defeating England in the second test match at Vizag.

India bounced back from its first test defeat to claim the second test match of the five-match series. Rohit Sharma and Men have defeated the English to level the series 1-1. Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah shined on the fourth day, as both of them took three wickets each to stop the Ben Stokes-led English team at 292 runs. India won the second test match by 106 runs. England started the second inning more aggressively than the first, continuing their “Bazball” approach. Zak Crawely and Ben Duckett started the chase of 399 runs on Day 3, where the former was looking lethal and scored a fifty, giving the scare to the Indian bowlers, but on Day 4, India kept attacking and turned the tables.

Despite Zak Crawley’s fearless innings, other batters on England’s team surrendered to India’s attack. England’s captain Ben Stokes was dismissed by the brilliant effort of Shreyas Iyer on the field as the Indian player took advantage of the slow running pace of England’s captain, and a direct hit by Shreyas Iyer cleared the way to victory for India. Jasprit Bumrah finished the match by taking the wicket of Tom Hartley in the end. Ravichandran Ashwin now needed only one wicket to reach the magical mark of 500 test wickets.

India and England will go to Gujarat now for the third test match scheduled to happen on February 15th at Rajkot. Whether Virat Kohli will join the team on the third test or not is still a question, and so far there is no update about him joining the team after KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja’s injuries. The options left for the Indian team are less, though India called for replacements like Rajat Patidar and Sarfaraz Khan. Strengthening the batting order is what Indian management is looking forward to.
