Match Preview of India vs England 2nd Test Match: India will look to have a good comeback in the next match at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam, on February 2, 2024.

The Indian Cricket Team once again lost the first match in the home series against England, just like the last one, but this one was quite hard to take on because it was not a flat wicket like last time as it was a more spin-friendly wicket but the masterclass of Olli Pope made all the three spinners of India looked easy to play. Regarding batting in the second innings, Indian batters looked nervous playing spin, which has been an issue for the new generation of Indian batters.

In the 2nd test match, India got some bad news already as Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul will not be in the team for the 2nd test match because of an injury issue, which will make the team weaker, but it is time for the other players to shine. Sarfraz Khan got his maiden call in the 2nd test match after performing in first-class cricket for over the last 4 years, where he has one of the best averages and might take the place of KL Rahul, but there is also a chance that Rajat Patidar who was included in the squad of first test as a substitute get a chance after his good form.

England Cricket Team came with all in and showed that Bazball could be a successful way of playing even in India. They won the match by 28 runs after Olli Pope’s amazing 2nd innings, which is considered one of the best innings by any foreign batter on Indian soil. He scored 196 runs, and most of the runs his boundaries came with a reverse sweep. Ben Stokes said in the presentation that it was the greatest innings that’s ever been played in the subcontinent by an English batsman.

Vizag pitch has been a run-scoring ground in test cricket, but only two international test matches played on the ground, due to which it is still confusion as to how the pitch is going to play but it is said to be spin-friendly more than the last pitch they played on. However, in the past, it was seen that the pacer also got amazing skids from the surface, which can trouble the batters.

Team Preview Of India

The Indian squad will be going to see a few changes in the next match as Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul will miss the 2nd test, and it is said that Sarfraz Khan will take the place of KL Rahul at fifth down. Washinton Sundar will replace Jadeja in the 7th down to give the team more batting power. However, there is a slight chance that Rajat Patidar might take the place of KL Rahul or even Shreyas Iyer, which is a very slight chance.

Important players for the India Team in the match against England

1- Rohit Sharma was one of the best batters on the pitch the last time he played here. He scored two centuries in one match, scoring against South Africa in 2019 with 303 runs in one match. Rohit will stick with his new approach, which is attacking, as he did even in the last match. He scored 24 and 39 in the first match against England.

2- Ravichandran Ashwin was one of the best bowlers in the last match, taking 6 wickets in two innings. In their career, he took 94 wickets in 20 matches against England, and in India, he took 343 wickets in 56 matches. He is just 4 wickets shy from taking 500 wickets to become the 2nd bowler from India to take 500 wickets.

3- Axar Patel did underperform in the last match against England, but this time, he will have more responsibility to perform in the absence of Jadeja. He needs to pick up his form and give the same performance that he gave last year against England.

Team Preview Of England

England is once again looking alive after a dreadful last year in the World Cup, and the way they came back in the first test match against India was phenomenal. It was a huge victory for their side, who lost 4-1 against India last time. The Olli Pope innings and amazing contribution by the lower down of England really took away the game from India. Shoaib Bashir might get his debut match in the 2nd test against India, and James Anderson will replace Mark Wood.

Important players for the England Team in the match against India

1. Tom Hartley was the man of the match in the last match, which went under the radar because of Olli Pope’s second innings performance. He scored 57 runs and took 9 wickets in one match, which was one of the best performances that could have been done in the debut match. His 7 wickets in the 2nd innings was the best performance by the England spinner debutant.

2. Joe Root is changing himself to a more reliable spin bowler on the spin-friendly track than the batsmen. He took 5 wickets in the first match, but his run-scoring has been a problem for the England team as he only scored 31 runs in both innings, which is not a good performance by a player who scored 11000+ runs.

3. Rehan Ahmed did not have a very good last match, but he can be crucial for the England team, who scored 41 runs and took two wickets. He can perform better with bat and bowl, which will help the team do better.
