The second test match between England and India is under its way at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. The guests bowled the hosts out on 329 in their first inning as India stepped in Day 2 on 200-6, with the remaining four wickets falling short in a shorter span.
The last four wickets for the men in blue lasted for only 7.5 overs adding 29 runs. Team England has achieved a unique milestone as they do not even have conceded a single extra run.
This has happened exactly after 66 years that a team does not concede any extra in the red ball game’s first innings. The three lions used six bowlers, and all did a splendid job with no extra run given.
Earlier, the record belonged to India against Pakistan as the men in green slammed 328 runs, with India conceding no extra run. This happened in Lahore back in 1955.
Eng vs Ind: England make a shocking record
As the second Eng vs Ind test is concerned, the hosts’ innings have majorly stayed dependent upon one man – Rohit Sharma. He played a sensational knock of 161 at the top-order. He has become the only international cricketer with 200 test sixes in India.
Rishabh and Ajinkya also have done a splendid job with the bat as they were stunned in the mid-overs. Notably, England’s chances are lowest to win the second test as the hosts have maintained a sound lead over them.
England have lost all of their wickets in their first innings on the lowest total of 134. If Ben Foakes’ 42 off 107 were not on the agenda, the visitors could have stayed even behind with a more significant trail.
However, in a four-match test series, the visitors have won the first one as India’s low bowling attack continued. The second test seems to be in the hosts’ favor. As of now, England lead with 1-0 in 4.
