Ind v Eng, 2nd Test, Visakhapatnam

England slightly edge After first Day despite Jaiswal century

India 336 for 6 (Jaiswal 179*, Ahmed 2-61, Bashir 2-100) v England

Visakhapatnam: England admirably clung on to India, despite Yashasvi Jaiswal making a sublime century on the opening day of the second Test in Visakhapatnam.

Opener Jaiswal batted throughout the day for his 179, leading the home side to 336-6.

The left-hander's knock prevented India, 1-0 down after losing a thrilling first Test, from completely wasting their advantage of winning the toss and batting first on a good pitch.

Jaiswal shared in three separate partnerships in excess of 50, but his team-mates wasted starts. The six men dismissed were all out for between 14 and 34.

Shoaib Bashir, the 20-year-old on debut, was the best of England's four spinners and picked up his maiden Test wicket when Rohit Sharma was caught at leg slip.

James Anderson, now into his 22nd consecutive year as a Test cricketer, bowled brilliantly as the sole seamer and claimed the wicket of Shubman Gill.

Bashir nipped in late in the day for his second, having Axar Patel caught at point, then Rehan Ahmed did the same to KS Bharat to leave England with real hope of limiting India to something manageable.
