At stumps, Rishabh Pant and debutant Axar Patel were batting on 33 and 5, respectively.

Seeking to level the four-match series after their defeat in the first Test, India opted to bat after winning the toss.

The hosts lost Shubman Gill without any run on the board but Rohit added 85 for the second wicket with Cheteshwar Pujara (21).

India, then, saw Pujara and captain Virat Kohli, who has also failed to open his account, fall in quick succession as they slumped to 86 for three.

Looking in great nick, Rohit found an able ally in vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (67) as the two senior batsmen forged a partnership of 162 runs for the fourth wicket at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Rohit, who scored his seventh century in the Test format on Saturday, struck 18 boundaries and two sixes, much to the delight of those present inside the stadium, the first time for an international cricket match in India amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rohit faced 231 deliveries during his stay in the middle, which was eventually cut short by left-arm spinner Jack Leach in the final session of play, while Rahane hit nine fours before being dismissed by Moeen Ali.

India lost three wickets in the final session after sitting pretty at 248 for three.

India needs to win 2nd Test to keep its hope alive for ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final qualification.

IND vs ENG live updates: PITCH REPORT

Here's what Murali Karthik and Mark Butcher said during pitch report
Tings have changed since the first Test. This looks a completely different surface. One or two little piece of movements, you feel it is very dry. I don't think it is rolled massively. An interesting toss to win. India wanted this. You definitely wanna bat first as it will disintegrate and offer spin.


Rohit Sharma under pressure to perform

Though India skipper Virat Kohli had confirmed prior to the first Test that both Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill would be persisted with throughout the series, the former is likely to be under pressure when India take on England in the second Test at the MA Chidambaram Stadium from Saturday.
 
Sharma, the senior of the two openers, did well in 2019 when he was promoted up the batting order to open in Visakhapatnam against South Africa. He scored 176, 127, 14, 212, 6 and 21 for a total of 556 runs at an average of 92.66 and all those runs came at home.
 
The Mumbai batsman did not play for over a year, due to injury and Covid-19, and returned to Test cricket only last month in Australia. The returns have been pretty ordinary. He has made 26, 52, 44, 7, 6, and 12 for a total of 147 at an average of 24.50.
 
Sharma's poor run of scores has reflected in India's poor opening starts. When he joined the playing XI for the third Test in Sydney, India seemed to have found a solution as he and Gill provided 70 and 71-run starts to the team. India had until his comeback had been struggling to muster up proper opening partnerships -- 16, 27, 30, 8, 0, 7, 0, 16.
 
But after stands of 70 and 71 with Gill, there was nothing worth of note over the next four innings across two Tests. The two put on 11 and 18 in the fourth and final Test vs Australia at the Gabba, and 19 and 25 in the first Test against England in Chennai last week.

2nd Test: Here's what Rahane said about Rohit's form

Questions were raised over Rohit Sharma's form after he scored six and 12 runs in the first Test match against England but India Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has backed the opener to come good in upcoming games.
 
Rahane on Friday said that one or two bad games don't define Rohit's form. The vice-captain praised Rohit and said everyone knows that he can score some big runs once he is set.
 
Rohit (Sharma) is an important member of our team. A big score doesn't imply that you have to score a century or 150. He made important contributions in Australia. You can't judge a player over 4-6 innings or one or two matches," said Rahane during the virtual press conference.
 
"You need to back your players and Rohit is the kind of cricketer who has won matches for India. We know when Rohit gets set he scores big. We're really happy to have Rohit in the team," he added.
 

2nd Test: First look of Chepauk wicket on Day 1

India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane on Friday said that the MA Chidambaram Stadium wicket for the second Test against England is a completely different from the one used for the first Test and will turn from Day One.
 
"It (pitch) will be completely different. I am sure it will turn from day number one but again as I said before the first Test match, we will have to wait and see how it plays in the first session and then take it from there. We have to forget what happened in the first Test match and focus on this and play good cricket. We know these conditions very well. We have to put our best foot forward tomorrow and play as a team," said Rahane while speaking to the media on the eve of the second Test.

Fans flout social distancing norms in bid for tickets for second Test

Wearing a face mask and maintaining social distancing are mandatory during visits for the redemption of tickets but the fans were seen flouting COVID-19 safety norms while doing so in Chennai ahead of the second Test.
 
The second Test between India and England, which gets underway on Saturday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, will see the return of fans in the stadium after a more than 11-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
 
The second Test will have 50 per cent crowd in attendance, the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) secretary had confirmed last week.
 
Speaking to ANI, TNCA secretary RS Ramasaamy said that the association has got the final approval from the BCCI to allow fans to come in for the second game of the Test series.
 
"We will have 50 per cent crowd for the second Test," he had said.
 
The redemption of online tickets was done from 8.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m. on Friday at booth number six and eight located at Victoria Hostel Road for 'C, D, E and F' Stands, at Wallajah Road near Gate No. 11 and 12 for 'I, J, K and H' Stands.
 

India vs England 2nd Test preview

After facing a surprise 227-run defeat in the opening Test of the four-match series against England, the Indian team will come out with all guns blazing to display a fighting spirit in the second Test in front of the crowds after a more than 11-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
 
After a historic series win in the Down Under, Virat Kohli and company will eye another comeback in the series after losing the series opener.
 
India's batting line-up failed in the first Test and that was the biggest reason for the hosts' defeat at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday. Openers Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma need to step-up for the side to provide a solid foundation while Chesteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli will look to convert their starts into big innings.
 
Swashbuckling batsman Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin and Washington Sundar have performed well in the first innings against the top-class English bowlers. On the other hand, Indian bowlers will look to find a solution for English batters in the second Test. Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma will try to get back in rhythm while Ashwin will look to continue his dominance on the spinning track.
 
India may try Kuldeep Yadav or Axar Patel in the second game as Shahbaz Nadeem struggled with his bowling run-up and bowled nine no-balls in the first Test.
 
Patel has recovered completely and is now available for selection. The all-rounder had complained of pain in his left knee and was ruled out of the first Test.
 
England skipper Joe Root is in great form and Indian bowlers need to come up with a fresh approach against him in the series. Dom Sibley, Ben Stokes and Ollie Pope are also not easy wickets to send back to the pavilion.
 
For England, Ben Foakes is set to take over wicketkeeping duties from Jos Buttler who ended his India tour after the first Test.
 
With spinners Jack Leach and Dom Bess, visitors bowling packs a solid unit including pacers Stuart Broad and James Anderson.
 
Jofra Archer will miss the second Test after having an injection in his right elbow.
