The focus of the first day of the second Test between India and England was Yashasvi Jaiswal. The youthful left-handed opener made sure that India reached 396 at the stumps by making 209 runs. Jaiswal distinguished himself with exceptional innings, while none of the other Indian hitters, such as Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer, and Shubman Gill, could even reach 35. Yashasvi Jaiswal has now scored two centuries in Test cricket, and 4th youngest player to achieve this landmark.

Sad news for Gavaskar -

News of the passing of Sunil Gavaskar's mother-in-law broke during the day's play, the legendary batsman and former captain of the Indian cricket team. After the news came, Sunil Gavaskar reportedly quit his commentary and headed for Kanpur, based on posts from veteran journalists.

2nd Test in England -

Speaking about the day's action, England's bowling lineup suffered greatly on the opening day of the second Test against India on Friday at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium thanks to Yashasvi Jaiswal's knocks. His double century took the Indian team out of danger and helped to pose a strong target.

The Vizag kept seeing how skilled Jaiswal was with the bat, and how mature he was to stay on his end and keep the scoreboard moving while forming brief but productive alliances. Jaiswal was able to strike a good balance between attack and defense because of his skills.
