Sensational Bumrah, Jaiswal double ton puts India ahead

India 393 (Jaiswal 209, Anderson 3-47, Ahmed 2-65) and 28 for 0 lead England 253 (Crawley 76, Bumrah 6-45, Kuldeep 3-41) by 171 runs

Vishakapatnam: England were blown away by a scintillating spell of reverse-swing bowling by India's Jasprit Bumrah on day two of the second Test in Visakhapatnam.

Bumrah took 6-45 in a devastating burst either side of tea, sensationally knocking Ollie Pope's middle and leg stumps out of the ground with an unplayable in-swinging yorker.

Zak Crawley batted beautifully for 76, but his loose swipe at Axar Patel allowed Bumrah and spinner Kuldeep Yadav to rip the heart out of England's middle order. In all, the tourists lost 6-68.

Ben Stokes fought back with 47 until he was bowled by Bumrah, who took his fifth when Tom Hartley was caught at first slip and then had James Anderson lbw to leave England 253 all out.

That gave India a first-innings lead of 143 after they were bowled out for 396 in the morning session.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, 22, became the third-youngest Indian man to make a Test double century before holing out off Anderson, who along with Shoaib Bashir and Rehan Ahmed, finished with three wickets.

Jaiswal was batting again before the close, joined by captain Rohit Sharma to take India to 28-0. Their lead is 171 on a pitch where chasing any target of 300 or above would be utterly remarkable.
