India Team News

After an Australia series win high, India were humbled in the first Test in the familiar conditions and it shows what a leveler this game of cricket is. They ended up being on the wrong side of the toss where England just piled up runs on the flat first 2 days pitch. BCCI has sent off that pitch curator and the pitch for this test has been prepared by a different curator and it is expected to turn from Day 1 which will help India irrespective of the result at toss.

For India, Shahbaz Nadeem will make way for Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav will finally get a game for Washington Sundar. Since, Axar can already bat at 7, they wouldn’t need Sundar’s batting skills which is why they can afford to play Kuldeep in this match.

Players to pick from India

  • Cheteshwar Pujara
  • Virat Kohli
  • Shubman Gill
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • R Ashwin
  • Ishant Sharma

England Team News 

England has been hit by an injury yet again before this match. Jofra Archer has been ruled out of this match. James Anderson has been given rest from this match as he has played 2 consecutive Tests and now it’s the turn of Stuart Broad who last played against Sri Lanka in the first Test.

Surprisingly, Dom Bess who picked 6 wickets in the first Test has been dropped too and he gets replaced by Moeen Ali while Ben Foakes replaces Jos Buttler who has gone home and won’t take any further part in this series. The issue is who will replace Archer – Chris Woakes or Olly Stone and Stone looks like for like replacement as he can bowl quick like Archer but the batting skills of Woakes may tempt Joe Root & management to play him. It’s a call England will take at the toss.

Players to pick from England

  • Ben Foakes
  • Joe Root
  • Jack Leach
  • Ben Stokes

Other Fantasy options from both sides

England : Olly Stone, Moeen Ali

India : Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah

India vs England Pitch Report

This Chepauk pitch looks brownish, which means the ball here will turn from day 1 unlike the first test where there was nothing for the bowlers on first two days. If the pitch plays by the looks, it might be difficult seeing a high scoring game although English spinners are slightly less skillful compared to Indians. Ashwin and Kuldeep will come in handy for India. This pitch is close to what we call a ” rank turner “.

India Team News

Gabba breach, Border Gavaskar Trophy win with multiple injuries are a part of history now. It’s time to move on and get ready for the next series, this time in the familiar territory and with the regular captain Virat Kohli. First suspense about who will be in the team and who won’t be was about Saha and Pant. Kohli has confirmed that Pant will play the Test match ahead of Saha and Pant will play as a keeper.

Now the question Team India has to address is that whether they will go with 2 spinners or 3 spinners. If they play with 3 spinners then, Ashwin, Kuldeep and obvious picks while for 3rd spinner, there will be a toss up between Axar Patel and Washington Sundar. If India plays with 2 spinners then, Ashwin will be partnered with either Sundar or Axar based on their batting skills and Kuldeep will have to sit out.

Among the pacers, Bumrah and Ishant are certain to play and Siraj will be the third pacer if India decides to go with 3 fast bowlers.

Players to pick from India

  • Cheteshwar Pujara
  • Virat Kohli
  • Shubman Gill
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • R Ashwin
  • Ishant Sharma

England Team News 

England has been hit by an injury right before the series as opener Zak Crawley has been ruled out of first two tests due to wrist injury. Ollie Pope was added to the side and he might start in the playing 11 while Lawrence will have to bat at 3, followed by Root at 4, Stokes at 5, Pope at 6 and Buttler at 7.  England is likely to play with only 4 bowlers which means Moeen Ali will form the spin combination with Jack Leach while Archer will partner one of Broad or Anderson, most likely Broad as fast bowler.

If England thinks of playing 3 spinners, then Dom Bess comes in for Pope but with Root already being a handy spinner, it doesn’t look likely.

Players to pick from England

  • Jos Buttler
  • Joe Root
  • Jofra Archer
  • Ben Stokes

India vs England Pitch Report

The last time India and England played in Chennai, it behaved like a classic Indian wicket. Full of runs on day 1, 2,3 and even at 4 and then it started to spin like it was supposed to. England scored over 400 in 1st inning, India scored over 700 after Karun Nair scored a 300 and then India bowled out England to win on day 5.

We expect the pitch to behave in the same way. It will be full of runs on first 3 and a half days and then the spinners will come into picture. Here are some statistics from last 5 matches about this pitch.

  • 1st inning average score : 376 runs
  • 2nd inning average score : 473 runs
  • 3rd inning average score : 218 runs
  • 4th inning average score : 87 runs
