India vs England Preview:
How quickly can tables turn in sport? A fitting example is India’s rare, gigantic defeat at Chennai – only their second rout at home in more than eight years. Not a month has passed since the warriors, battered and bruised, were welcomed to the flashiest cheers, the most gleeful hoots, with the utterly esteemed badge of “Demolishers of the great Gabbatoir” stamped over their chests. Test matches are often won and lost in the first two days.
Having allowed their opponents to bat two days and over 190 overs, eventually leaking a lead worth 578 was enough to lay a foundation for them to script their 6th Test win on the trot in the subcontinent – a place Joe Root has been in love with. A batting performance far away from expectations intermixed with some masterful bowling performance on a deteriorated fifth-day track did the rest for England. Coming to the stakes of the second Test, Root wants his men to be ruthless: a template that Virat Kohli has never been a stranger to. While three of India’s last four home defeats in Tests have come against England, they will be well aware that none of those have been half as costly as the one at Chennai, when seen in the light of the tense atmosphere around the development of the World Test Championship.
Virat Kohli, quite evidently, hinted at how Shahbaz Nadeem and Washington Sundar lacked the bite with the ball. With Axar Patel regaining complete fitness after his knee injury and getting a green signal for selection, India is certain to exclude Nadeem.
Skipper Joe Root confirmed the return of Stuart Broad in the side for the second Test, however, the visitors will be without the services of Jofra Archer due to his elbow discomfort. Jos Buttler, who is set to miss the remainder of the series, will be swapped with Ben Foakes, whereas owing to England’s rotation policy, Olly Stone is expected to fill in for James Anderson. Dom Bess, who looked off-color in the previous game, might pave way for Moeen Ali.

Weather and Pitch Conditions:
After a slow and flat surface that Ishant Sharma chose to term a “road” in the first Test, both the teams are expected to earn more purchase on a quick turner in the second fixture, with turn on the offer as early as the opening day. Given the cover of clayey soil over the usual red on the track, which is on the square to the first game’s pitch, it is expected to be much drier, therefore offering low bounce as the game progresses.
