Day 3, preview: Spinners expected to rule the roast

It was the pair of Jonny Bairstow and Ben stokes, who batted out until the rest of the day, as England continued to trail by 352 runs, while Ashwin finished the day as India s top wicket-taker with a couple of scalps. England also went past the 100-run mark, and are currently on 103 for the loss of five wickets.

The Visakhapatnam track was expected to assist spinners on Day Two. That s what the pitch report suggested. The spin troika of Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid and Zafar Ansari had some hopes not much but some. Day One was a disaster for them. None of the spinners could bag a wicket, for it is no dust-bowl. But again, they had hopes on Day Two. Alastair Cook started off with pace instead, given the moisture in the air and the fresh morning rays. It did not work though. The duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad went wicketless, forcing Cook to introduce spin.

Virat Kohli looked comfortable. It is not new. His batsmanship has reached another level. At the other end was Ravichandran Ashwin. India had lost only 4 wickets with enough runs on the scoreboard. Moeen came into the attack, with no wickets in his tally. The first delivery he bowled produced no turn. Few more deliveries and still no sign of turn the pitch report spoke of. From the other end attacked leg-spinner Rashid. The deliveries were action-replay of the one bowled on Day One. Cook persisted with spinners for a while, for that was the only mode of attack.
