10.10am: That is yer lot
Two in three balls as soon as once more, and England have managed to sneak out of this morning with out taking too a lot harm. Olly Stone continued a positive return to Check cricket by eradicating Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj, each caught behind, and which means Pant was left stranded on 58 not out. He scored all 25 of the 29 runs India scored this morning, and he was good for tonking just a few extra if he might simply discover somebody to hold round on the different finish (admittedly simpler stated than finished on this floor).
9.50am: Extra Pant pongo
It has been the beginning we envisaged from Rishabh Pant, and he is shortly raised a half-century – his fourth in dwelling Checks. His sequence of balls confronted this morning went like this: 1-dot-dot-6-1-4-4-dot-1, that final single taking him to 50. Not Jack Leach taking faucet this time, with Joe Root bowling himself alongside Moeen, who has continued to serve up full tosses within the face of Pant’s onslaught. These might all be important runs.
On the plus facet for England, they’ve nonetheless to concede an additional on this innings – is Ben Foakes going to maintain a clear sheet, simply as he did on debut in Galle a few winters in the past? They’re closing in on the file in Checks, too.
There are mongooses watching this (they hardly ever watch when cricket is behind a paywall) shaking their head and whispering in awe, ‘that Ben Foakes… he is fast!’

9.40am: Moeen will get going
Two wickets in three balls for Moeen Ali, bowling simply the second over of the morning, have gotten England smiling. Though Moeen’s grin was barely sheepish after a full toss did for Ishant Sharma. The opposite man to go was Axar Patel, who overbalanced and was well stumped by Ben Foakes because the pitch once more demonstrated its spinning nature. Pant has to date confronted one ball, scored one single, and misplaced two companions.
9.30am: How good was Rohit?
Simply to mirror just a little longer on the efficiency that will have set the course of this match, Rohit Sharma’s fabulous innings meant his dwelling common now sits at 83.55 – second solely to the Don. Okay, you may quibble that his away file (common: 27.00) might do with enhancing, however there’s not many that would have performed the innings he did on Saturday. By no means thoughts Bradman, it was proper within the Sehwag bracket. In these situations, you may’t get a lot increased reward.

Morning and welcome again. Fingers up who likes it spicy? India appeared to have gotten themselves into an excellent place on the finish of day one because of a Rohit Sharma masterclass, they usually’ll hope so as to add just a few extra this morning earlier than it is England flip to tango on this dancing Chepauk deck. The suspicion is that 300-plus might already be a defining complete, however Rishabh Pant will not wish to cease there – and if the pitch continues to snap, crackle and pop, it needs to be loads enjoyable to look at. Buckle up.
