Team India have bounced back quite well in the second Test against England in Chennai. While the Day 2 belonged to R Ashwin – the bowler, the next day belonged to Ashwin – the batsman as well. Ashwin took a fifer and troubled England batsmen yesterday whereas he stitched a 96-run partnership for the seventh wicket along with Virat Kohli and scored a magnificent century as well.
Virat Kohli and R Ashwin had other plans in mind. They stitched 96 runs for the seventh wicket on a difficult wicket to bat on. While Kohli played a rather defensive knock, Ashwin took on the bowlers from the beginning. They both used the pitch quite well where they used their feet against the spinners as well.
Meanwhile, Kohli, who failed to get a hundred, showed his patience and batting skill and scored a fifty as well. On the other hand, Ashwin registered his fifth Test hundred in front of his home crowd which showed full of composure, class and authority. He got out for 106 off 148 balls ending India’s innings at 286 as well. Meanwhile, the visitors have lost 3 wickets for 53 after 19 overs at stumps yesterday.
