India vs England 2nd Test Live Streaming Score HotStar Star Sports

We got something that wasn't expected. India was expected to dominate the first test but somehow it was England who got the upper hand. The scorecard might show a picture of a boring flat track. But that wasn't the case. Spin got some support in patches and batsmen too relished the conditions. Extra 20 overs and the result could have been different. This makes the test series interesting. Watch India vs England 2nd test match live streaming on HotStar and Star Sports with live Hindi and English commentary. The venue for this match is Visakhapatnam.

The ACA-VDCA cricket stadium in Visakhapatnam would host a test match for the first time. This is a part of cricket board's initiative to bring test cricket to newer venues. Indore and Rajkot were also privileged to host a test match before this.

Indian spinners faced a tough time after a long time. Most of the sessions they were outplayed by the Englishmen. If Indian pacers would have provided some on-time breakthroughs, spinners could have applied more pressure on the visitors.

While the pitch at Rajkot proved to be a near nightmare for the spinners, the pitch here at the ACA-VDCA cricket stadium seems to be dry and might crack in a day or two. This might provide some relief to spinners from both the teams.

Virat Kohli would have to decide on the team combination. Will he go ahead with the five bowlers strategy that might include Amit Mishra or will he strengthen the batting line after what he saw at Rajkot? Anil Kumble has indicated the return of KL Rahul to the team. This may result in the exclusion of Gautam Gambhir from the playing XI. Hope he gets some fair chances soon after this. Meanwhile KL Rahul who got injured during the New Zealand series has proven his worth with couple of good innings in the Ranji Trophy. We might not be surprised if he plays tomorrow at Visakhapatnam.

England bowling line up did a decent job. Will Cook bring back James Anderson in the playing XI or will he continue with the same XI that played at Rajkot? Anyway, Anderson is fit to play.

Four test matches to go. A win here for either of the teams would give them an upper hand in the series. Let's hope for some great cricket ahead.
