England were shaken by India’s spinners and it added further dilemma on England batsmen as Jayant Yadav got his maiden scalp picking Moeen Ali for a run on Day Two at Visakhapatnam. He already thumped his entry with the bat but with this wicket Jayant announced his name as the potential spinner for India. England were struck by Indian bowlers since the beginning of the innings with captain Alastair Cook dismissed for 2, leaving his stumps broken into two while a misunderstanding between Haseeb Hameed and Joe Root costed England their second wicket. The third one came in with Joe Root completing his fifty on his 50th Test and Ravichandran Ashwin getting the big one. LIVE Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 2nd Test at Vizag

Moeen’s is a major wicket for India and Jayant getting the first one makes it even more special for the youngster. He was picked replacing Amit Mishra. Root got his 24th fifty and tried going the Virat Kohli way. However, could not get a century that England are in dire need of. India scored 455 after England spinners bundled them our withing the first session.

For India, Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara saved their side from precarious condition with their centuries. Pujara got 119 runs. Ashwin also added some valuable runs and added 58 runs. Jayant Yadav also ensured his debut proves to be lasting enough and was decent enough with 35 runs.

India’s opening batsmen were not impressive as KL Rahul, who made comeback after his injury, replaced Gautam Gambhir and was gone for a duck. India had won the toss and elected to bat first.
