VISAKHAPATNAM: On the first day of the second cricket Test against England, India are 336 runs for the loss of six wickets at the time of stoppage of play thanks to an unbeaten century (179*) by youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal. Ravichandran Ashwin (5*) is at the crease alongside him.

Jaiswal scored 179 runs off 257 balls with 17 fours and five sixes. This is the second century of his career. Meanwhile, none of the other batsmen were able to take advantage of the good batting conditions.

Rohit Sharma (14), Shubman Gill (34), Shreyas Iyer (27), Rajat Patidar (32), Axar Patel (27) and Sreekar Bharat (17) got off to a good start but did not capitalize. The Englishmen performed well with the ball on a wicket which supports the batting.

Shoaib Basheer, who made his debut for England, took two wickets. Basheer's first wicket of his career was that of Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. Rehan Ahmed also took two wickets while James Anderson and Tom Hartley took one wicket each.
