VISHAKAPATNAM: India had England in trouble on the second day of the second Test here as they established a 171-run lead in the first innings after bowling out the visitors for 253 runs due to a decisive spell by pacer Jasprit Bumrah who took six wickets. Earlier, India was bowled out for 396 with a superb double ton by young batter Yashasvi Jaiswal contributing more than half of those runs.

Yashavi's sublime 209 came off 290 balls. The 22-year-old opener was a cut above the others, the only Indian hitter who rose to challenge that England could present in their innings. India started the first session of Day 2 at 336/6. Jaiswal continued his charge with bat for India and kept the scoreboard ticking. He soon brought up his maiden double hundred in Test cricket by hitting a boundary. His marvellous innings came to an end as he went for the big hit against veteran England pacer James Anderson but handed a catch to Jonny Bairstow at the extra cover. India was soon all out for 396.

Despite getting a good start, England was bowled out for 253, thanks to the brilliant pace bowling from India's Jaspirt Bumrah. Bumrah, who then went on to take six wickets in England's first innings, became the fastest Indian pacer to take 150 test wickets. Bumrah got his 150th wicket in his 34th Test.
