(Scorecard)

Here are the Highlights of Day 2 of India vs England 5th Test:

  • 18:48 (IST)

    India vs England Live: End of Day’s play

    That is it for Day 2. India finish with a commendable lead of 255 runs and considering the fact that Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah are still out in the middle on Day 3, the hosts will surely be looking to add more runs to their already big total.

  • 16:38 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Boundary for Bumrah

    A perfect cover drive by Jasprit Bumrah and the Indian dressing room cannot keep calm. A full delivery from Mark Wood and Bumrah guided it beautifully to the boundary. Solid show from him and Kuldeep as well as the day almost comes to an end.

    IND 466/8 (117.2)

  • 16:31 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Good end to the day

    5 overs to go and India will be a happy side at the end of Day 2. Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma played brilliantly before Sarfaraz Khan and debutant Devdutt Padikkal stabilised the innings with half-centuries. They lost a few wickets quickly but the tail-enders have proven to be quite a bit of an issue for England.

    IND 461/8 (115.3)

  • 16:23 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Advantage India

    The 29-run partnership between Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav is a gift that even India were not expecting. With three quick wickets, it looked like India will be bowled out today but these two batters have add very valuable runs and with a 200+ run lead, it can be the deciding factor in this game.

    IND 457/8 (113)

  • 16:17 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Bumrah in control

    Jasprit Bumrah looks uncommonly calm at the moment with solid defense and even some cheeky shots – one of which got him a boundary through third-man. With Kuldeep Yadav looking good on the other end, Bumrah has also started adding valuable runs to India’s tally and this late partnership can be a problem for England who were on the road to recovery just 10 minutes ago.

    IND 455/8 (111)

  • 16:10 (IST)

    India vs England Live: 11 overs to go

    11 overs to go in the day’s play and although India will take a lot of heart from how they have played today, England will not be completely out of the game. The late wickets can prove to be absolutely crucial on a pitch that will not be very difficult for batters to negotiate with.

    IND 450/8 (109)

  • 16:03 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Kuldeep fights back

    During the Ranchi Test, Ravichandran Ashwin praised Kuldeep Yadav’s batting and it looks like we are experiencing another good show from the spinner. He has looked good till now and Kuldeep is trying to add some value runs on the board for the hosts.

    IND 443/8 (107)

  • 15:55 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Hosts losing wickets in a heap

    A sad end to Ravichandran Ashwin’s innings on his 100th Test as he is castled for a duck. He was completely beaten by Tom Hartley’s straight delivery and India lose their eighth wicket. A strange passage of play with the hosts completely losing the plot.

    IND 435/8 (104.4)

  • 15:43 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Another wicket goes down

    Ravindra Jadeja also departs and India are now seven down against England in the final session of Day 2. A turning delivery from Tom Hartley crashed into Jadeja’s pads and although he did go for the review, replays made it clear that it was hitting the leg stump. Not a good passage of play for India. 

    IND IND 427/7 (101.1)

  • 15:37 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Jurel departs

    That is the end of Dhruv Jurel as he is caught in the deep off the bowling of Shoaib Bashir. He was looking in good touch but he went for a big one over long-on but could only manage to deposit it right inside the fielder’s hands.

    IND 427/6 (100.4)

  • 15:32 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Some intent from Jadeja

    There has been some criticism regarding Ravindra Jadeja’s intent in these situations. Ravi Shastri mentioned on commentary that he expected Jadeja to go for big shots with India in such a good position. Looks like the left-hander is now trying to let loose with a big shot towards long-on which was just saved on the boundary.

    IND 426/5 (100)

  • 15:22 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Solid surface

    The picturesque Dharamsala has been a good batting track till now. While England did struggle later in their innings, it was mainly down to Kuldeep Yadav’s masterclass and some rash shot selection. However, as Indian batters have shown, playing spin or pace is not very difficult at the moment.

    IND 414/5 (97)

  • 15:12 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Chance for Jurel

    Out comes Dhruv Jurel and here is another youngster who will look to prove his worth on the global stage. With Rishabh Pant still recovering, KS Bharat not finding a place and Ishan Kishan out of the picture, Jurel have a great chance of making the wicket-keeper batter position his own. As a result, this match can be a big step for him in his Test career.

    IND 410/5 (94.2)

  • 15:06 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Paddikal departs

    Shoaib Bashir strikes and Devdutt Padikkal’s debut innings comes to an end. A solid delivery from the bowler and Padikkal was not able to read the line properly. The ball crashed into the middle and leg stump with India losing their fifth wicket.

    IND 403/5 (92.1)

  • 14:48 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Fifty for Padikkal!

    A six down the ground and there is the fifty for Devdutt Padikkal. It is the maiden fifty for India’s Test debutant. He gets there in 83 balls. India 385 for 4 in 86.1 overs, lead England (218) by 167 runs.

  • 14:37 (IST)

    India vs England Live: WICKET

    Sarafarz Khan is out! The right-handed batter has lost his wicket to Shoaib Bashir. Sarfaraz cut the length delivery into the hands of Joe Root at slip. Sarfaraz departs at the score of 56 off 60 balls. It’s a sigh of relief for England as this partnership was really hurting them. They finally have a breakthrough.

    IND 376/4 (84.1)

  • 14:17 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Tea on Day 2

    India 376/3 with a lead of 158 runs against England at tea on Day 2 and the hosts will be really happy with how the session turned out. England started with two quick wickets but Sarfaraz Khan and Devdutt Padikkal made sure that India were back in the game. 

  • 14:06 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Fifty for Sarfaraz

    Another boundary for Sarfaraz Khan and another half-century! A brilliant performance under pressure from the youngster and this is exactly what the doctor ordered for the hosts. Time for Devdutt Padikkal now as he is 7 runs away from a fifty on debut.

    IND 370/3 (82.1)

  • 14:00 (IST)

    India vs England Live: No trouble at all

    Sarfaraz Khan is going all guns blazing against Shoaib Bashir and he is very close to another half-century. A boundary through fine-leg and he moves to 47. This has been a good knock from him under pressure!

    IND 362/3 (79.5)

  • 13:53 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Super Sarfaraz

    There was a lot of chatter about Sarfaraz Khan finally getting a chance to play Test cricket for India and the batter has justified his selection completely. A good show in the debut Test followed by a gritty innings today which took the hosts out of a sticky situation. He is now looking to add another half-century to his name.

    IND 356/3 (79)

  • 13:44 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Stat Attack

    Shubman Gill completed 4000 international runs with his 110-run knock. Gill made his India debut in the ODI format against New Zealand in 2019. Following that he has appeared in 44 50-over matches and scored 2271 runs at a strike rate of 103.46. Currently, Gill has 4098 international runs to his name.

  • 13:37 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Sarfaraz unleashed

    Looks like Sarfaraz Khan is doing playing the patient game and we are now experiencing the trademark aggressive batting. A boundary straight down the ground followed by a upper cut through third-man. Two different shots but the same result!

    IND 337/3 (75.4)

  • 13:32 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Lead crosses 100

    India are now 100 runs ahead in the first innings and Sarfaraz Khan celebrated the occasion with a boundary over mid-wicket. Short ball from Tom Hartley and the batter was quick to heave it on the leg side. A welcome boundary for the hosts who have recovered well from the twin strikes.

    IND 323/3 (74.2)

  • 13:27 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Problem for Patidar

    A good show from Devdutt Padikkal in this match can be bad news for Rajat Patidar. He played the last two matches against England but was not able to impress with his batting. A lot of debutants in this series and a good show from Padikkal can put them slightly ahead in the race for selection in future games.

    IND 316/3 (73.3)

  • 13:23 (IST)

    India vs England Live: England trying everything

    Mark Wood is bowling from another end but no success for him either. Tom Hartley was the spin option that England chose but till now, both Sarfaraz and Padikkal have played both bowlers quite cautiously. Nothing flashy from them and it looks like they are determined to not make any mistakes.

    ENG 316/3 (72.5)

  • 13:12 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Time for spin

    Tom Hartley is introduced into the attack and this is the first time spin bowling will be seen after lunch. With James Anderson and Ben Stokes, England got a good start to proceedings but they have now gone to their main spin option to break this partnership. Padikkal has looked quite comfortable against pacers but this will be a new test for the debutant.

    IND 315/3 (71)

  • 13:05 (IST)

    India vs England Live: No stopping Padikkal

    Devdutt Padikkal is batting on 30 and he has already slammed 7 boundaries. That clearly shows how dominant the left-hander has been till now. He came to bat at a situation where India had just lost two set batters but his knock has been nothing short of flawless.

    IND 313/3 (69.4)

  • 12:58 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Padikkal power

    This is the Test debut for Devdutt Padikkal but it is looking like there is no pressure on the young batter. He has looked in tremendous touch with five boundaries till now and his latest one came against James Anderson. It was a loose delivery outside the off-stump and he was in perfect position to guide it to the extra cover boundary.

    IND 305/3 (68.2)

  • 12:48 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Proving ground

    This will be a tough period of play for India as they would have come into the post-lunch session with the belief that in-form batters Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma will capitalise on their brilliant start. However, with Padikkal and Sarfaraz out in the middle, both of them will need a bit of time to find their rhythm and if England can take a couple of wickets in this situation, the pressure will suddenly be on the hosts.

    IND 295/3 (66.2)

  • 12:40 (IST)

    India vs England Live: 699 for Anderson

    Shubman Gill’s dismissal was the 699th wicket for James Anderson as he slowly moves towards a sensational feat. He did not look very dangerous early in this match but considering his discipline and talent, he is capable of producing a beautiful delivery at any point in the game.

    IND 290/3 (64.5)

  • 12:36 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Big challenge

    The dismissals of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill bring two batters out in the middle who are quite new to Test cricket. This is the debut for Padikkal while Sarfaraz is playing his second match. A good show here can be a major boost for both crickets and also a great chance for them to make a case for themselves when it comes to long-term selection.

    IND 285/3 (63.5)

  • 12:30 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Another wicket!

    England have started the second session in perfect fashion. James Anderson produced a lethal in-swinger and it penetrated right through Shubman Gill’s defense. The off-stump goes for a cartwheel and India find themselves three wickets down suddenly.

    IND 279/3 (62.4)

  • 12:23 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Stokes strikes!

    What a delivery from Ben Stokes and Rohit Sharma’s stay at the crease comes to an end. It was the first ball from the England skipper and it moves away from the batter to crash into the off-stump. Rohit followed the line of the delivery but the late movement proved to be his undoing. Can England make a comeback?

    IND 275/2 (61.2)

  • 12:16 (IST)

    India vs England Live: We are back!

    Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma are back for the post-lunch session and this can be another run fest for the batters. Both of them looked completely at ease in the morning and with the conditions getting more conducive for batting, this can turn out to be a nightmare for England.

    IND 271/1 (60.4)

  • 11:35 (IST)

    India vs England Live: It’s lunch on Day 2!

    That is lunch on the second day of play. India are 264 for 1 in 60 overs with Rohit Sharma (102) and Shubman Gill (101) remaining not out in the first session. India lead England (218) by 46 runs at lunch.

  • 11:30 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Gill smashes ton!

    Shubman Gill also gets to his hundred, he scores it in 137 balls. It is the fourth ton for the young India batter in the format. He finally seems to be in his groove batting at the number 3 position. India 262 for 1 in 58.2 overs, lead England (218) by 44 runs.

  • 11:25 (IST)

    India vs England Live: Century for Rohit!

    Single and there is the century number 12 for Rohit Sharma in Test cricket. What a knock from the Indian captian! He never gave England any moment to dominate him to be honest. Just stuck to one end and kept scoring runs at will. He gets to his century in 154 balls. India 257/1 in 58 overs, trail England (218) by 39 runs.

  • 11:23 (IST)

    India vs England Live: FOUR!

    It was slightly short from Tom Hartley and Shubman Gill played a square cut on it from the front foot for a four. He comfortably hit the ball through the gap between backward point and cover fielder. India are right on top of this game.

  • 11:09 (IST)

    India vs England Live: SIX!

    A flighted delivery from Shoaib Bashir and Shubman Gill jumps out of his crease and hits the ball over deep mid-wicket for a big six. It went for 88 metres. This is a superb shot from Gill. He is looking in great touch.

    IND 238/1 (53)

  • 10:52 (IST)

    India vs England Live: IND take lead vs ENG!

    It was a fuller delivery from Sohaib Bashir and Shubman Gill jumped out of his crease and hit the ball over the bowler’s head for a six. With it, India have taken a lead of six runs against England.

    IND 224/1 (48.1)
