India vs England Second Test preview

The Test match after the miracle before. Now India and England are at Visakhapatnam – the hosts dejected, the tourists jubilant – with Rohit Sharma's men 1-0 down in this lip-smacking five-match series.

Once again Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum's so-called 'Bazball' regime ripped up the rule book to inflict only the fourth Test loss on the Indians on home soil in 10 years. Debutant Tom Hartley was not supposed to outspin Ashwin, Jadeja and Patel. Ollie Pope was not supposed to score almost 200 on a turning track. Stokes was not supposed to contort his battle-worn body to affect an impossible run out. And yet...

The news didn't get much better for India ahead of the Second Test as arguably their best batter and bowler from that incredible Hyderabad opener were unavailable, with KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja injured. But that doesn't seem to have phased them too much, as the Test is theirs for the losing going into day 4.

First came Yashasvi Jaiswal's immaculate double ton – over half of his team's 396 first innings total. And then came the brilliant Jasprit Bumrah, with a spell of fast bowling for the ages and figures of 6/45 to leave England almost 150 in arrears. England just about kept themselves in the game, despite Shubman Gill's impressive century. Can Stokes, Ollie Pope, Joe Root and the rest of England's batters pull off a miracle and chase down the intimidating 399 winning target?

England had their bubble slightly pricked in the lead-up with news that experienced spinner Jack Leach was injured. No matter... why not just throw another debutant into the deep end. This time it's 20-year-old Somerset offie Shoaib Bashir. And, at the other end of the scale, 41-year-old Jimmy Anderson replaces Mark Wood as the visitors' sole seamer.

If we learned anything from the madcap First Test it's that the remainder of the series is set to be utterly unmissable. So read on as we explain how to live stream India vs England and watch the Second Test online from wherever you are – including details of how to watch for free.
