The second match of the five-match Test series between India and England is scheduled for tomorrow at 9:30 am at Dr Rajasekhar Stadium in Visakhapatnam. After India’s defeat in the first test by 28 runs, England leads the series 1-0. The outcome of this series will play a crucial role in determining the future of the ICC World Test Championship 2025.
Team India, led by Captain Rohit Sharma and Coach Rahul Dravid, faces a challenge in the second test against England as Ravindra Jadeja is sidelined due to injury. In his absence, Sarfaraz Khan, recently included in the team, and Rajat Patidar, already in the squad, bring their excellent batting skills from domestic cricket. The team aims to make a strong comeback, level the series, and overcome the hurdle posed by Jadeja’s absence in the upcoming match.
