Ind vs Eng – 2nd Test Chennai

News

They struggled with their support bowlers Washington Sundar and Shahbaz Nadeem in the first Test

India continue to wait on the fitness of Axar Patel, who resumed bowling in the nets after missing the first Test in Chennai with a left knee strain on the eve of the match. He was expected to take a fitness test on Thursday, two days before the second Test.

The loss of Patel’s batting ability possibly disturbed India’s combination in the first match. It meant Washington Sundar had to play for the batting cushion at No. 7, which ruled Kuldeep Yadav out because India needed at least one bowler to take the ball away from right-hand batsmen.

While India’s three frontline bowlers kept the batsmen quiet on a flat pitch in the first innings of the match, Sundar and Shahbaz Nadeem, both in their second Test, leaked runs. All three of Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and R Ashwin went at under three an over, whereas Nadeem and Sundar conceded 265 runs in 70 overs between them.
