Despite some unexpected and poor shot selections from the batters, Team India managed to finish the first day of the second Test on a positive note, scoring 336 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 93 overs at the time of stumps, with having Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ravichandran Ashwin unbeaten there in the middle.

Earlier on day 1 of the Vishakhapatnam Test, the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first; India lost two wickets before reaching the mark of 100 runs in the first session. However, the young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal kept taking charge against the England bowlers and playing aggressively.

Amidst a fall of wickets at regular intervals, Jaiswal managed to play an amazing and sensational knock of 179 runs off 257 balls, hitting 17 fours and 5 sixes by the end of the first day at the ACA-VDCA International Cricket Stadium in Vishakhapatnam.

Besides Jaiswal, none of the Indian batters couldn’t even score a half-century as the second-highest score on the first day after Jaiswal’s 179 was the 34-run knock played by Shubman Gill followed by debutant Rajat Patidar’s 32 runs. Shreyas Iyer and Axar Patel went back to the pavilion at the individual scores of 27 runs each.

Young spinner Rehan Ahmed and debutant Shoaib Bashir scalped 2 wickets each for England, alongside one wicket each picked by spinner Tom Hartley and the veteran pacer James Anderson.

Notably, the visitors are already leading the five-match series by 1-0 as they won the first match in Hyderabad by a narrow margin of 28 runs on the fourth day of the match.

The fans also came up with a lot of mixed reactions to India’s batting after the end of day 1 in the ongoing second Test against England in Vishakhapatnam.
