India will be very happy with the first day’s play in Vizag as they reach 317 for the loss of four wickets. But they would have loved if they had not lost the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane in the second last over of the day. But centuries from Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara lifted them after England took two early wickets after asked to bowl first by Kohli. Then Kohli and Pujara shared a 226-run stand for the third wicket before Pujara fell for a brilliantly made 117. Kohli continued with supreme concentration and was unbeaten on 151 at stumps with R Ashwin unbeaten on one at the other end.

1443 hrs IST: A boundary from Kohli fine behind the wicket to move on to 98*. This will be a great hundred. He already has two this year and both have been double ton. Pujara on strike on 99* as Rashid comes on to bowl

1440 hrs IST: Still no hundred as only three runs come from that over from Rashid. Two to Kohli and a single to Pujara. He moves on to 99*. Stuart Broad comes on to bowl after he went to the dressing room in the previous over

1327 hrs IST: A bit of grass comes out as Anderson dives to save a boundary on the fine-leg boundary. Anderson’s knee got stuck in it. Seems okay though. He tries to make it even with his foot but a lot of grass has come out

1318 hrs IST: Moeen Ali with the first over after drinks and he goes for eight runs off it. Pujara has now leads Kohli in individual scores in this innings. They both are in sixties but while Kohli has attacked, Pujara has played some sublime cricket. Frustrated Stokes back

1311 hrs IST: Kohli finishes the over with a boundary through fine-leg. A miss field from Rashid again. Stokes not happy with that effort. India live score 139/2 after 43 overs. Umpires call for drinks in Vizag after an hour’s play in the second session

1307 hrs IST: DROPPED! Adil Rashid has put down a difficult chance off Virat Kohli at fine-leg. Good set up from Ben Stokes as he bowled a rare bouncer and Kohli is late to realise that.

1253 hrs IST: Moeen Ali finally comes on to bowl his off spin for England. He had to wait for long but England searching for wickets here. Kohli and Pujara have just been sensational to say the least

1251 hrs IST: FOUR and FIFTY! Cheteshwar Pujara continuing the rich form. Creams Stokes through covers to get the half-century. He has centuries in his last two Test matches. Just saying. The 100-run stand also up between Pujara and Kohli

1246 hrs IST: That is five runs from the over from Rashid. I don’t know why England are keeping him on. Only reason I see is that Kohli and Pujara are right handers and Cook doesn’t want off-spinner Moeen to bowl to them. Anyways, Stokes to bowl

1241 hrs IST: Just the two runs off the Stokes over. India now move on to 112/2. Pujara has been solid and with Kohli he has kept up the run-rate. This partnership was much needed for India after the two early wickets. England continue with Adil Rashid

1210 hrs IST: Players back on the field for the second session of play in Vizag. Virat Kohli will take strike as James Anderson comes on to bowl the first over after Lunch. England need some wickets here. Should Moeen Ali been used earliere?

1200 hrs IST: We are ten minutes away from live action in Vizag. This could be an important session for both teams. India need to be cautious if the pitch starts to turn. England spinners will like that to happen quickly. If India do not lose any wicket in this second session, they will have the advantage

1155 hrs IST: England spinners have been unimpressive so far the first couple of hours of play. Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara have punished them. Alastair Cook will need them to bowl with more accuracy and keep the batsmen under control instead of leaking runs

1140 hrs IST: The unbeaten 70-run partnership between Kohli and Pujara has come after Anderson and Broad picked up the two early wickets. KL Rahul,  the comeback man, was out for a duck while Murali Vijay, who was looking fluent, was surprised with a bouncer from Anderson

1111 hrs IST: Stuart Broad also bowls a maiden on return. Kohli and Pujara are moving on slowly. No risk taken from the two batsmen. England, after that good start, have let it go. Poor bowling from the spinners. Rashid comes on

1106 hrs IST: Only a single run in the next two overs as Rashid bowls a maiden and Ansari keeps it tight. Pujara and Kohli also happy to play it defensively. We have a change in bowling as Broad comes on to bowl now

1038 hrs IST: Kohli looking in brilliant touch here! Two more boundaries from the over from Stokes as India take their score over 50 in the fourteenth over. Excellent recovery after the two wickets. Ansari again

1034 hrs IST: Ben Stokes will continue after drinks for England. We are all waiting for the turn that was took all the talk before the match. Kohli on strike

1031 hrs IST: First hour of play done in Vizag. India are 45/2 and Kohli and Pujara are the two batsmen out in the middle for them. England will be happy with the start here

1002 hrs IST: Six overs gone in Vizag and India have reached 28 for the loss of two wickets. England will be very happy with start after losing the toss. Anderson again

In the batting department, India will be happy to see the return of KL Rahul who was sidelined for more than a month due to a hamstring injury he sustained in the opening Test against New Zealand. This means that Gautam Gambhir has to be left out of the playing XI.

For England, their leading fast bowler James Anderson is back but it will be interesting to see if he can make it to the playing XI. Their spin trio of Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali and Zafar Ansari will once again share the responsibility to bowl out India on this pitch.
