Last Updated: 16/11/12 3:18pm
So that's it for day two in Ahmedabad - India have dominated, firstly with the bat and then late on with the ball. Pujara's double hundred helped the hosts get up to 521-8 declared, leaving England a tricky session before the close to bat. There were late casualties, too, debutant Compton, nightwatchman Anderson and Trott all perishing to spin, meaning England will resume on Saturday on 41-3, still trailing by the small matter of 480.
England survive at just the three wickets down. Pietersen gave Ashwin the charge and padded away the first delivery of the over for a leg bye, allowing him to watch Cook bat out the rest of the over. We've had 239 runs and seven wickets in 88 overs on day two.Branded a "pie chucker" by KP, Yuvraj serves up exactly that with a first delivery that nearly bounces twice. Pietersen's onto it in a flash, pulling it away for four runs. Cook also helps himself to a boundary to finish what was, in truth, a rubbish over. That wasn't even village standard. Still, worth a shot from Dhoni.Bumble stats on commentary that it's "Freddie Mercury time for England - they're under pressure". Pietersen introduced himself to the crease by charging Ashwin and working a single to mid-on. Now he's on strike, so guess who is coming on to bowl? Yep, Yuvraj is going to get an over at his 'bunny'And another one bites the dust! England are crumbling late on day two, Trott becoming the third wicket to fall when he prods forward and provides an inside edge to Pujara at short leg.So a wicket apiece for India's spin twins already. Trott is now out at number four having hoped Anderson could keep him in the safety of the hutch for the rest of the night. India are crowding the batsmen and runs are at a premium. About 12 minutes left for England to survive.The let-off for Anderson doesn't last long. Having been possibly fortunate to survive an lbw shout in Ashwin's last over, then even more fortunate to be dropped at short leg the ball before, an inside edge loops off his pad and in the reach of a diving Gambhir at short leg.Anderson gets off the mark straight away with a nudge into a huge gap at square leg for a couple. He looks less certain when Ashwin pitches one on the straight and gets sharp turn. The appeal goes up for leg before but umpire Dar turns it down. Looks like fortune might have favoured England there, perhaps did too much. By the way, Compton became Ashwin's 50th Test scalp. He's achieved that feat in nine matches, the fastest by any Indian bowler.And here comes Jimmy Anderson out to the middle - as if he hasn't done enough work throughout the day...Ashwin gets Compton, a delivery with a bit more flight turning in between bat and pad and onto the debutant's furniture. The new boy had battled hard, making nine from 53 deliveries, but his maiden Test knock is over now.Another probing over from Ojha, including one delivery to Compton that is unplayable. It pitched middle and spun sharply past the outside edge, ending up in the hands of Sehwag at first slip. There was an appeal for a catch, but the bat was nowhere near it in the end.India appeal for an lbw, then a catch at leg slip, when Compton shuffles across his stumps. Both shouts are given short shrift by umpire Dar. England's opening pair stage a quick drinks break at the end of the over, a ploy to stop India sneaking in extra overs before the close.Dhoni loves setting an aggressive field - after seeing Compton beaten on the outside edge, the India skipper adds a gully to go alongside the two slips and short leg. Still, England's debutant doesn't look fazed by the situation. Change of ends for Ashwin - he's going to take over from Zaheer.There's some 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' from the India fielders when Compton leaves alone a ball that is close enough to the off stump to get them excited. That's one of his trademarks though, and one of the major reasons why he averaged just shy of three figures in the LV= County Championship during the summer.If you haven't seen Ojha bowl before, he's very much a traditional left-arm off-spinner. He's noticeably down on pace compared to the other frontline slow bowlers we've seen so far in this match. Lovely action and with his flight he also gets turn. Unlike Ashwin, however, there's no mystery ball to be worried about.Maiden from Zaheer, but Cook looked comfortable throughout. We've got 10 overs remaining in the day so there's a strong possibility of a little bit of overtime. Change of bowling now, but it's Ashwin who is making way for fellow spinner Pragyan Ojha.Nasser Hussain talks on commentary about the 'Carrom' ball, a delivery Ashwin bowls. He also reveals that Sir Ian Botham thought it was called a 'Cannon' ball, while Bumble confesses he had it down as a 'Carrot' ball. Whatever you want to call it, Compton read it well in the over.Zaheer not finding any early swing with the new ball and not looking particularly dangerous because of it. Probably only going to be a short spell for the experienced left-armer.Dhoni takes out the silly point when Compton comes on strike - then sees an inside edge off pad pop up right where that man would've been. Sure enough, with the horse now running around in the meadow, he bolts the stable door by calling for another close fielder. Compton does much better at the end of the over, going back into his crease and working the ball with the turn for a single.Compton looking solid in defence against Zaheer - he has a superb defensive technique and also an excellent understanding of what deliveries to leave alone outside his off stump.Compton gets his first look at Ashwin and looks comfortable enough, working the third ball of the over into the gap at mid-wicket for a single. Cook is then beaten by a beauty that turns past his outside edge, giving an indication of the problems Ashwin will pose. Dhoni's providing plenty of support in the field - there's a slip, a leg slip and then two men under the helmets in front of the wicket.After seeing a well-timed pull shot stopped at square leg, Compton gets off the mark in Test cricket from his fifth delivery, squeezing a forward prod in between bat and pad and then calling his captain through for a quick single. Cook, in contrast, is dealing in just boundaries - his third comes courtesy of a short ball that is money for old rope on this benign surface.After a rank long hop that allows Cook to get off the mark with a boundary, Ashwin finds the right line and length. There's turn, too, and some bounce with the brand new cherry. The last ball doesn't get up, however, and Cook is lucky that an under-edged cut stroke goes away between Dhoni's pads for four more.Dhoni likes a spinner to start on home soil - Ashwin is handed the opening over with the new ball.For the first time in a long time, England don't have Cook and Strauss as their regular opening pair. Instead, at the age of 29, Nick Compton is given the chance to take Strauss' place.Just like that India have decided to pull the plug on their first innings, Dhoni deciding he's seen enough at 521-8. Pujara finishes up not out on 206 (always helps the average out!) and England's misery in the field is finally over after 160 overs.Pujara sees out five balls from Anderson, then sneaks a single off the last to keep the strike. Harbhajan is hanging around the edge with some drinks...what's happening here?Swann takes over from KP - England want these last two wickets pronto (and so do I, be nice to see debutant Compton have a bat today). Ojha is denied the chance to get off the mark when Pujara turns down a comfortable single so he can keep the strike for Anderson's next over.Ojha is beaten all ends up by the first ball he faced, but then looks a little more certain for the rest of the Anderson over. His claim to fame with the bat is that he was Muttiah Muralitharan's 800th Test scalp.Anderson has a breakthrough when Zaheer slices a drive too close to the diving Trott at gully, meaning we finally have an England seamer with a wicket to his name. India now eight down and the end is nigh, surely.Pietersen gets a man drafted up to silly point when Zaheer is on strike...then promptly bowls a long hop for the tail-ender to smack past said fielder and away for four runs. In fact, it's a poor over from KP, perhaps it's time to give him a break.Having spoken for the past three overs about ice creams, David Lloyd and Sir Ian Botham are now enjoying one during their commentary stint. Bumble rattled off about a dozen different names he could think of, then ended up with a 'Fab'. No such cheap measure for Sir Beefy, he's on a Magnum. Meanwhile, in Ahmedabad, Zaheer gets off the mark with a leg-side single.So now England have an end open - Zaheer did actually hold the record for the best ever Test score by a No.11 (75, before you ask) but averages only a tad above 12. The second new ball is just around the corner, too.KP goes nuts as he claims a wicket! Ashwin tries to steer a wide ball past slip, but only ends up feathering an edge through to wicketkeeper Prior. And so ends a seventh-wicket partnership of 66 that spanned 20 overs, Ashwin contributing 23.After two failures at the start of the over, Pujara finally steers Anderson past the man at gully to bring up his double hundred. He's the 41st Indian player to make 200 or more in a Test, with that happening against England on six occasions. This man likes scoring runs - he once made three triple centuries in the same month!Back to the action with another KP over - Pujara picks up a pair of runs with a cut shot to move to 198, then pinches the strike with a single from the final ball. Interesting debate in the Sky Sports studio during the interval - Nasser Hussain felt England hadn't thought enough "outside of the box", while Nick Knight felt they'd tried plenty of different tactics so far.So a better session for England, though this seventh-wicket pair have checked their progress. A wicket apiece since lunch for the spin twins of Swann and Patel, the former dismissing Dhoni to complete his five-for. Meanwhile, Pujara just keeps piling on the runs for India.India's 500 comes up with three more for Pujara. That last century has taken 209 deliveries, the second slowest of their innings so far. The first, when Sehwag was at the crease, was comfortably the quickest, coming in 116 balls. The hosts head for tea on 502-6, though it could have been seven down had Cook held on to a sharp chance above his head from Ashwin's bat. Another catch goes begging for the tourists - they must like being stuck in the field.Pietersen comes back into the attack - England look in desperate need of a break now as this seventh-wicket stand goes beyond 50.Stuart Broad took 25 wickets in four matches against India in 2011 at an average of under 14, including a hat-trick at Trent Bridge. He's gone wicketless through 24 overs now in this match and is close to bringing up his century of runs conceded. Speaking of milestones, Pujara's double ton is fast approaching. Can he get there before tea?Yet another example of Pujara's ability to read length - Swann is a fraction short and pays the price, being pulled away square of the wicket. Bresnan runs around but can't cut off the boundary. 10 minutes now from tea, been a better session for England but this pair have now put on 43 runs for the seventh wicket.Patel goes some way to making amends for his mistake in Broad's last over by saving a single with a desperate dive in the deep. Still, there's nothing any fielder can do from the next ball when Ashwin drives on the up through the point region for four, leaving the miserable Broad shaking his head yet again. I'm surprised he doesn't get neck ache.Singles off Swann's latest over, two of them for Pujara with drives down the ground to long-on. These are already Swann's best bowling figures in a Test in India. He actually has a tremendous record overseas, though good tours against Pakistan and Sri Lanka last year helped his figures.And finally Broad is back! I thought captain Cook might have forgotten about his vice-skipper completely. Good to see Broad starts his return over with a dreadful appeal for lbw. Wouldn't have hit leg stump on another set, though that doesn't stop the bowler looking like he's just been told Father Christmas isn't real when the shout is turned down. He's even more angry when Patel makes a mess of a fairly simple stop at backward point, allowing the ball to get beyond him and give Ashwin a couple more.Some lousy running from Ashwin means Pujara only gets two for a nicely-timed cut shot towards the point fence. I can understand Sehwag, Tendulkar and Yuvraj being a little slow between the wickets, but not a young pup like Ashwin. In truth, India would be beyond 500 now if they actually did try running, rather than jogging, between the wickets.Seems that Ashwin boundary in the last over has awoken Pujara from his mid-afternoon slumber - he has been brutally quick to pick up the length of deliveries, particularly from Patel. A long hop gets deposited over mid-wicket for a one-bounce four. Just so you know, the average first-innings score in the last five matches at this venue has been 377. That's a cold, hard start for early in the morning.Ashwin finally gives us a boundary to talk about, sweeping Swann well enough to get the first four for 11 overs. England had an attacking field set, meaning there was plenty of space in the deep. Perhaps India are now going to put their foot down as we head towards tea on day two.Ashwin has the potential to pick up the run-rate for India - his Test ton against the West Indies came off a mere 118 deliveries, including 15 fours and two sixes. He also has a half-century in the longest form of the game.Another over, yet more singles. India could do with pushing this gaeme along a little, no point just patting back over after over.Just a single from Patel's 28th over (he now has figures of 1-85). India allowing the game to drift along.The 450 comes up for India with a Pujara single - that would have been their minimum target at the start of the second day. Swann did state last night after the day's play that England needed to restrict their opponents to less than this, though their situation seemed much worse when they failed to get a wicket throughout the morning session.Ashwin gets off the mark with a cut shot in Patel's first over back into the attack. Really am starting to wonder now if Anderson and Broad are actually on strike. I suppose the third new ball isn't too far away.Time for a drink in Ahmedabad. England will feel much better after the opening hour of the afternoon session - if only they could have said that this morning. Still, two wickets since the interval have raised their hopes of restricting the hosts. Not too much batting to come, either.What does Pujara do now? He's been happy to just coast along so far in his innings, seen as he's had Sehwag, Tendulkar, Yuvraj and then Dhoni at the other end. Now, though, he's starting to run out of capable partners. Ashwin can bat, as shown by the fact he has a Test match hundred to his name.Shortly before Dhoni dragged on Pujara reached his new best score in Test cricket. The single to get to 160 came the delivery after Swann had seen another leg before shout turned down by Tony Hill. The spinner did the best thing - take the official out of the equation and just clatter into the stumps. Strange innings from Dhoni, barely played a shot in anger.Swann has five! His first over back into the attack and Dhoni drags on a sweep shot. Makes you wonder why it's taken so long for captain Cook to get his leading bowler into the action during the afternoon session.So much for the idea that Dhoni's arrival at the crease might see India up the ante - the home skipper has mustered five runs from the 35 deliveries he's faced so far. Maiden from Bresnan.And still Patel continues - has Swann gone on strike since lunch? What's a bit strange about this is that Samit is bowling over the wicket now, posing little threat to either batsman whilst he's pitching nearly all his deliveries outside the line of off stump.Pujara beats both Bresnan and the stumps with a lovely straight drive that involved a lot of bottom hand. Four more to India's new No.3 - a new Test best is now firmly in his sights.Dhoni dumps Patel down the ground, only he's clubbed up short and it ends up plugging short for a couple of runs. Surprised England have not turned to Anderson, Broad or Swann since removing Yuvraj after lunch.Pujara clips a delivery from Bresnan to fine leg to get the single he needs to bring up his 150. It's taken him 299 deliveries to reach the milestone for a second time in his so-far brief Test career. Dhoni has had little of the strike since getting in - he shows his frustration by charging Bresnan, who responds with a bouncer that loops harmlessly past the India skipper at chest height.Pujara whips Patel through mid-wicket for four more before a single off the fifth ball takes him to 149 - he's closing in on his Test best of 159 now, though don't think he'll stop there. He actually has hit a triple century in first-class cricket in India.Pujara pinches the strike from his skipper with a single off the last ball of the Bresnan over. At least this quiet period in the game is improving Big Tim's figures.Having got a wicket with a full bunger, Patel now tries his luck with a half-tracker. Pujara's not falling for that, though, rocking back and slamming it away for four runs. Could signal a change in the attack - surely Swann to have a go while Dhoni is fresh at the crease. Have to say Patel bowled pretty well yesterday - and then has been fairly dire today. Still, at least he's an English bowler not called Swann to have a wicket in this match.Bresnan takes over from Pietersen after the fall of Yuvraj, who made an excellent 74 before giving away a comeback hundred. Dhoni gets off the mark with a firm drive just wide enough of mid-off to get a single. He's the perfect man for this situation, though he'll also be aware that India will really only want to bat once if possible on this pitch.Patel also tries the full toss trick to new man Dhoni, only he's not as foolish as his team-mate, instead knocking it along the floor to mid-on. Yuvraj stood out in the middle for a minute or so after being caught, perhaps hoping for a reprieve due to the delivery being above hip height. It may have been, but it wasn't serving him any danger. Nobody to blame for his dismissal other than himself. Off you go, and think about what you've just done.Yuvraj goes...to a full toss! Patel serves up an absolute pie, yet it's the batsmen who ends up with it all over his face when he slots it straight down the throat of Swann at long-on (honestly did consider putting my money on the ball as the fielder got underneath it).India will be aware that the last two Tests at this venue have finished in draws. Indeed, Sri Lanka made over 700 in one of those matches. This pitch should offer a bit more than those did, though today it hasn't spun as much as it did yesterday afternoon.Patel gets through a maiden to Yuvraj, who twice considers going after the left-arm spinner before thinking better of it.Pietersen continues after the break, don't forget he was England's best spinner in his last Test appearance against South Africa at Headingley (he was also England's only spinner - they left Graeme Swann out for that game). KP could see plenty more action this afternoon if India continue to pile on the runs.So England head in at lunch in trouble. India have added 87 runs in the morning and, most importantly, the fifth-wicket pairing of Pujara and Yuvraj are still going strong. The former has reached his century, while the latter will be looking to become the third Indian to hit a ton in this match during the afternoon. It all makes bleak reading for any England supporter just waking up at home.Swann, who has now bowled 42 overs already in this match, is punished for dropping short, Yuvraj rocking back to pull him away over a straightish mid-wicket for four more. A single leaves Pujara to see out the final two balls of a fabulous morning session for the hosts.I could watch Pujara bat all day, which is a good thing as it looks like it possibly might happen. Pietersen begs Cook for a silly point and gets his wish. Time for one more over before the lunch break on day two.Swann comes back into the attack - who knows where England would be without him in this match (probably applauding Sehwag's triple century about now). Can't fault England for effort in this session, what they really needed was one of those early lbw shouts to go their way.Pietersen gets a bowl before lunch - and probably looks more dangerous in one over than Patel has so far in two days. KP to Yuvraj is always a great battle, and Prior is quick to make a "pie chucker" comment from behind the stumps (words Pietersen used on England's last tour here to describe Singh's bowling). He always gives it a rip, and had one turned a little more he may well have had the left-hander leg before.India's 400 comes up thanks to a lovely-looking cut shot from Pujara. The hosts seem to have found their replacement for Rahul Dravid at three. Pujara has looked a class act, albeit for one delivery when he miscued a leg-side flick and was somehow not caught by Jimmy Anderson at mid-on.Maiden from Bresnan - he has his right elbow, something he's had problems with in the past, heavily strapped. At least the six dot balls will ease the pain, and improve his bowling figures. Still, though, we wait for an England seamer to take a wicket in this series.Michael Atherton from the ground: "The absence of Bresnan from the attack tell tells its own story in the first hour, Swann, Broad and Anderson bowled pretty well and unlucky not to pick up an lbw or two. Samit continues to look short of Test class with the ball and you get the sense that Yuvi fancies tucking into him. Pujara continues to look classy. Swann last night said that England needed to get India out for 450 - that is looking optimistic now. India obviously controlling the match but so far, little has spun viciously. It still looks a very flat pitch. England's first innings vital - whenever it comes, which might be a long time!"Patel turns one past the outside edge of Pujara's blade - not exactly what England's top order need to see with Ohja in the opposition's ranks and nearly 400 on the board. Poor Bell takes another blow under the helmet at silly point. Yesterday it was his back that bore the brunt, today's it's his right foot.The problem for Bresnan, and indeed all the England seamers in this match, is that they've not got the old ball to reverse on a consistent basis. Suggestions are that could be down to a rather lush outfield at the Sardar Patel Stadium. For Bresnan, without that ability to move the ball, he's a bit like cannon fodder on a pitch as flat as this.Yuvraj is clearly keen to target Patel. Knowing the ball is going to be spinning in, meaning he has an extra line of defence with his pad, the left-hander is happy to come down the wicket and loft Samit over long-off for six. Perhaps a bit of KP to Yuvraj? Let the two egos battle it out against each other.Bresnan gets the chance to have a bowl again - before this over he'd bowled just 10 in the match and hadn't been seen in the attack since yesterday afternoon. Sehwag took a particular liking to him on the first day, further suggesting England got it wrong with their team selection in going with three seamers and just one frontline spinner. It's a steady start for Bresnan this morning at least, though Pujara does drive him through the covers for a couple of runs.A quickly-taken single to backward point brings up the hundred partnership between these two India batsmen.It's often a war of attrition when it comes to a series in India - right now India are winning the battle in Ahmedabad. Another England lbw shout is rejected, and rightly so as Anderson's delivery from around the wicket hits Yuvraj outside the line of off stump.After his full toss to Yuvraj in his first over, Patel this time serves up a long hop for Pujara to pull away for four runs. Stand for the fifth wicket now at 97 - India have already had partnerships of 134 and 90 for the first and second wickets respectively.Anderson now bowls with a packed off side field - there's two men on the drive, another deeper at cover to save the single and another fielder at backward point. Only problem is if Pujara nicks one, there's no slip in sight. England getting a little desperate now.Samit Patel starts the second hour of play. A full toss from the new bowler allows Yuvraj to slam away the boundary he needs to take him to his half-century. It's a fine return to the Test XI for the left-hander a year on from his last appearance from the longest form of the game. His team-mates certainly appreciate it, particularly considering what the man has been through in the last 12 months.Time for DRINKS in Ahmedabad. England have gone wicketless through the first hour of play. And we haven't seen Bresnan bowl an over so far - in fact he's not been called into action by his skipper since yesterday afternoon. Just seems to suggest even further England got their starting XI wrong on the first morning.Singles for both batsmen take this fifth-wicket stand to 82. This is exactly what England didn't want this morning. Can't say they have bowled badly, though, just a couple of decisions haven't gone their way.Maiden from Anderson - he's doing the job that Broad failed to do at the start of the day. Right, Sky Sports has the technology to check the lbw decisions, though they can't show them on screen. Turns out the Swann appeal when Pujara offered no stroke (the one where the spinner threw his toys out of the pram after not getting his way) would have been an umpire's call, meaning it was only clipping the stumps.Yuvraj gets fortunate when a top-edged sweep against Swann loops harmlessly to where a short fine leg would have been. Instead the man is positioned out in the deep, allowing Singh to run through for a couple more. We've had 40 runs so far in 13 overs, but 15 of them came in the space of six deliveries from Swann.Television footage shows the close lbw appeals England have had in this innings so far, the majority of them off the bowling of Swann. The problem is, the BCCI will not let 'Hot Spot' or 'Hawk Eye' even be used in the broadcast, so we don't even know whether they were out or not via the help of technology.Maiden now from Swann - it was the combination of him and Anderson who put the brakes on India after tea yesterday. This fifth-wicket partnership is now worth 77.Anderson replaces Broad - David Lloyd points out on commentary that his fellow Lancastrian seems to have some strapping around his ankle. Let's hope that's not serious. Anyways, the Burnley Express begins his second day's efforts with a maiden to Yuvraj.More appeals, this time in the Swann over. Having just cut the spinner for four past the slip fielder, Pujara then decides not to use his bat at all. England are adamant the ball has turned enough to hit the stumps, but after a long look umpire Tony Hill disagrees. Probably enough doubt, but Swann is ticking now. Remember, there's no DRS available in this series. I'm fine with these being given not out, provided the officials stick with that policy for both sides.Broad is again adamant he's got Yuvraj lbw. Prior does briefly join in, but it's more in desperation than anything else. Ball looked to have struck the batsman outside the line of off with Broad coming at him from around the wicket. Sure enough, replays show that to be the case. Why does Broad think every time it hits the pads off his bowling it must be out? Answers please to Rob.Lancaster@bskyb.com, or tweet to @SkySportsLanny.India's 350 comes up - Swann himself said yesterday that England couldn't afford to let their opponents go beyond 450. It doesn't leave the tourists with much more to play with. Mind you, Sehwag said after play on day one that it was a sluggish pitch and difficult to score quickly on...after making a run-a-ball 117.Broad again drifts onto Pujara's pads - he's bowling to a plan to be dead straight (meaning England now have no slips in place at all) but keeps getting his line wrong. Worrying signs for England that Yuvraj is looking to be aggressive - runs count in a big way for the tourists, particularly after they fought back on the opening day.Well, Swann's run of dot balls this morning has been well and truly ruined. Pujara, freed from the pressure of being so close to his ton, drives superbly down the ground for four, then Yuvraj goes even better with a lofted straight drive that goes all the way. A slog-sweep from the left-hander brings another boundary, meaning there's a total of 15 from the over.A leg-side delivery from Broad allows Pujara to tuck away the single he needs to reach three figures for the second time in Test cricket. His first came against New Zealand earlier this year, also on home soil. Impressive player, he's faced 190 balls and hit 13 boundaries.Another maiden from Swann, meaning Pujara is still stuck one short of his ton. He's looking a little twitchy, too, flicking one ball towards short fine leg and then setting off for a run. He wouldn't have made it halfway had Yuvraj not sent him back. The nervous 90s...Pujara moves to 99 with a flick off his hip to the man at deep square leg. Broad started off down leg to the right-hander, though thankfully that's a better line to the leftie. He still strays to him too, though, giving away four leg byes. Broad actually thought it was worth a loud lbw shout, but when doesn't he? Sadly none of his team-mates, nor umpire Dar, agreed with him.Swann starts with a maiden to Yuvraj, including a loud appeal for leg before when the left-hander misses a sweep. Height was the issue for umpire Tony Hill, even though the batsman was down on one knee attempting to play the ball away. It will be Stuart Broad to start from the other end.No surprise to see Graeme Swann thrown the ball first up for England - he took all four wickets to fall on day one, in the process moving himself past Jim Laker on the all-time list.Cheteshwar Pujara will be the focus of attention for the first few minutes of the day - he's back out in the middle needing just two more runs for his second Test century. Alongside him is Yuvraj Singh.Play will be back underway at 4am British time, with India resuming on 323-4. It is a MASSIVE morning session for England, who simply must take wickets early and often to remain in contention to get a positive result. If the hosts clear 450 in this innings, a draw is about the best captain Cook's men can hope for.and welcome to coverage of the second day of the opening Test of the series between England and India in Ahmedabad.
