IND Vs ENG: What kind of pitch is at stake for the second test? Will the spinners create havoc? theinsiderinsight

IND Vs ENG: After falling 1-0 in the series against England, Team India is desperate to make a comeback. Team India can play a big bet regarding the pitch in the second Test to be held in Visakhapatnam. Despite the defeat of the first test, the pitch of Visakhapatnam ground is going to prove helpful for the spinners. According to reports, there will be a lot of turn on the pitch in the second test. Not only this, the pitch bounce is also expected to be less. However, Indian spinners are expected to get more benefits on this pitch.

According to the report of Inside Sports, the spinners will start getting help on the first day of the match. However, given the performance of England's spinners in the first Test, the visiting team is not going to be too worried about the pitch. Not only this, England has even warned that they can take the field with 4 spin bowlers in the second test. The biggest relief for England is that young spinner Shoaib will also be available to play in the second test. Shoaib could not play in the first test due to not getting a visa.

Changes decided in Team India

At the same time, Team India can also change the bowling combination after seeing the pitch which is helpful for spinners. Apart from Ashwin, Jadeja and Akshar Patel, Team India had given opportunity to two fast bowlers in the last match. But in the second test, there is a possibility of giving rest to either Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj. Bumrah was successful in taking 6 wickets in the first test. In such a situation, Team India can bet on him only. Apart from this, India is also going to miss Ravindra Jadeja who will not be a part of the second test due to injury. Kuldeep Yadav may get a chance in place of Jadeja. However, due to batting, Sundar's claim is also not weak.
