England had a good morning as they restricted India captain Virat Kohli from achieving his third double-century in a calendar year and dismissing him off for 167 on Day Two of the second Test at Visakhapatnam. Ben Stokes was seen rather frustrated grabbing the catch as he had a rough day on Day One after catching early wickets in the first session on Thursday. Moeen Ali got his first wicket and what a wicket he got hold of. Kohli scored his 14th Test century on Day One and also became the first Indian skipper to score 150 runs in a calendar year. Wriddhiman Saha entered at No. 7 to support Ravichandran Ashwin who is playing on 23. However, England once again found winning ways as Moeen got his second wicket of Saha with the ball hitting the first slip. LIVE Cricket Scorecard: India vs England 2nd Test at Vizag

Review was taken after umpire Dharmasena declared it out. The review was in favour of the visitors and India lost their sixth wicket. India were further shackled as Moeen continued his spinning wheel with his third wicket and grabbed new batsman in Ravindra Jadeja for a duck. India took no review this time and went ahead with the umpires decision. Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara’s centuries provided flourishing start to India after early wickets of KL Rahul and Murali Vijay.

Pujara scored his 10th Test century and was dismissed for 119 as he was grabbed by comeback man James Anderson. Rahul was the 1st choice opener as per Kohli as declared on Wednesday, replacing Gautam Gambhir. Meanwhile, Jayant Yadav got his debut call with former cricketer Ravi Shastri providing him the Test cap.

England also made slight change to their squad with Anderson being called in surprisingly and Chris Woakes being benched out for the second Test.
