IND vs ENG 1 Test: Day 2 of the first Test at Chepauk against England was no different for the Indian team as well as India supporters as Joe Root and Ben Stokes continued dominating the sessions and piling runs for the side. The hundred run partnership between Joe Root and Ben Stokes wore the Indian bowlers down as they went wicket-less till lunch.
Rohit Sharma mimics veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh’s bowling
Just before the Tea break, skipper Virat Kohli handed the responsibility of bowling a few overs to Rohit Sharma to give his regular bowlers a breather. In the final delivery of the session, Sharma copied veteran Harbhajan Singh’s bowling action which cracked up the rest of his teammates. The ball turned out to be a full-toss delivery to Joe Root who picked up a single and retained the strike.

“Theek Hai, Sir” responds Rohit to Pant
Like Day 1, it was Rishabh Pant’s commentary behind the wicket which entertained Indian fans and bowlers despite the hard grind on Day 2. Star Indian opener Rohit Sharma also chipped in to keep the spirits of Indian players upbeat.
Rohit’s two-over spell was a refreshing period as Rishabh Pant was heard giving instructions to Rohit from behind the wickets as he does to every other bowler.
“Theek hai sir,” responded Rohit with a smile on his face.
Wicketkeeper Pant has been trying his best to keep his teammates’ spirits high against a top-quality batting display from England on a flat wicket. Pant even reminded Shahbaz Nadeem that the hosts had run out of reviews when the left-arm spinner wanted to use one before the break.
Meanwhile, England has taken a firm grip on the match banking on skipper Joe Root’s double century. The visitors have got 555 on the board at the loss of eight wickets.
