IND vs ENG Live Score and Commentary

The Indian cricket team claimed victory in the second Test match against England in Vizag on the final day of the match. The hosts looked to be the dominant side of the two throughout the Test match. In what looked like a classic spin track in Vizag, skipper Virat Kohli had no doubts in choosing to bat first after winning the toss. The team went on to post 455 runs in the first innings, thanks to the skipper's ton. The England team in reply managed to score only 255 as Ravichandran Ashwin chipped in with another five-wicket haul. The hosts in their pursuit to post a challenging total for the English batsman lost their way in the second innings and ended up with 204 leaving 404 to chase for Alastair Cook's men. 

The total was always going to be challenging give the nature of the track. On a pitch that misbehaving every now and then in terms of bounce, the English openers came out with a clear intention of searching for a draw. The patient partnership between Cook and Haseeb Hameed made life tough for Indian bowlers as they had to wait until the 51st over to get their first wicket. The Indian spinners capitalized on the breakthrough and ran through the English batting line and cleaned them up for just 158 in the second innings. The Indian team went on to win the match by a mammoth margin of 246 runs in the final day and took a 1-0 lead in the five-match Test series.
