At the close of play, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara were batting on 25 and 7 respectively, as India reached 54 for one in their second innings on a day when the English batsmen were at sea against the home team's spinners, especially Ravichandran Ashwin, who returned excellent figures of 5/43.

Thanks to senior off-spinner Ashwin's effort, India bowled out England for 134 in their first innings for a massive first-innings lead of 195 runs. India was all out for 329 in their first essay.

Debutant left-arm spinner Axar Patel picked up two wickets, including the big one of England's in-form captain Joe Root. In fact, Root turned out to be Axar's maiden Test wicket.

Lead pacer Ishant Sharma also took two wickets while there was one for Mohammed Siraj.

Wicketkeeper Ben Foakes top-scored for England with 42 not out off 107 balls even as his teammates struggled to get starts at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Earlier, India added only 29 runs to their overnight score of 300 for six as Mooen Ali finished with 4/128 and Olly Stone 3/47 after Rishabh Pant's enterprising 58 with seven fours and three sixes.

India looks to reach 350-run mark on Day 2

Rohit feels 350 runs on board will be a good first innings total looking at the turning nature of the pitch.
 
"I feel 350 would be a good total on this wicket and we have four wickets left. So we will hope Pant and Axar play long innings. Try and make as many runs as possible as we know this wicket will start turning a lot from the second and third day as we can see the rough patches," said Rohit.
 

When there were no fans, intensity was low from both teams: Rohit Sharma

India opening batsman Rohit Sharma on Saturday expressed his happiness on the return of spectators to the stadium for the second Test between India and England.
 
This is the first time in over a year where fans in India were allowed in an international match with limited capacity. Rohit admitted that he was missing the cheerful atmosphere when the games were played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.
 
Rohit, who played a sensational knock on the opening day of the second Test, was delighted to witness the lively atmosphere at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
 
"It was great fun to have them at the ground. I mean it is something that livens up the whole atmosphere at the stadium, in the ground. When there was no one at the ground in the first Test, the intensity was slightly low from both the teams," said Rohit in the virtual press conference after the end of the day's play on Saturday.
 
"But when you have people coming to the ground and cheering, you know it's nice to have the crowd. It's been a long time. I am 
 

DRS turned out to be like VAR today, says Leach

England spinner Jack Leach on Saturday said that the Decision Review System (DRS) behaved like a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) on day one of the second Test against India at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
 
VAR has been a controversial addition to the sport of football and there have been many who have questioned whether the technology is aiding the sport or hampering it. Leach's remarks came as Ajinkya Rahane survived a close DRS call. The visitors' had made a huge appeal of Rahane being caught at bat-pad, but the on-field umpire turned it down, and then the Three Lions opted for a review. However, the third umpire Anil Chaudhary did not look at all the angles, and he stayed with the on-field call.
 
Chaudhary missed out on seeing one particular angle and once it was shown after the not-out call was made, it was clear that Rahane was indeed out. However, the umpires realised their mistake, and they gave England their lost review back.
 
"We were trying to get the third umpire to roll it through, they were checking LBW, we knew that would have been not out, we were just trying to get them looking at what happened after the ball hit his pad. It is a bit like VAR today, still controversial, it is what it is," said Leach during a virtual press conference on Saturday.
 
"They said they were checking it, then the LBW picture came up, we were saying no, no. We wanted to check them the other one. I got the impression that they hadn't checked it (the angle we wanted the umpires to check). There is nothing I can do about it, at that time, I was angry but to get Rahane's wicket in the next over, made a things little easier," added Leach.
 
Three Indian wickets in the final hour of play tipped the opening day of the second Test slightly in favour of England after Rohit Sharma's sensational knock had set the India innings up on Saturday. The hosts lost Rohit (161), Ajinkya Rahane (67), and Ravichandran Ashwin (15) in the final hour of the play as the hosts lost three wickets in the third session after holding the fort before tea.
 

India vs England 2nd Test Day 1 highlights

Rohit Sharma scored his seventh Test century -- his first one year and after eight innings -- to help India reach the 300 for six wickets on the first day of the second Test against England at the M.A.Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, yesterday. Ajinkya Rahene scored 67 while
 
Rishabh Pant was batting on 33 at close.
 
The other unbeaten batsman was debutant Axar Patel, who was on five, on a pitch that had started assisting spin from the first hour of the day.
 
Sharma's counter-attacking 161 (off 231 balls, 18x4s, 2x6s) and his 162-run partnership with Rahane (149 balls, 9x4s) helped India recover following a poor start after captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat.Later in the day, Pant (56 balls, 5x4s, 1x6) put up a 35-run stand with R. Ashwin (13). Axar has so far played seven balls so far and hit one boundary.
 
India, who lost three wickets in the first session, didn't lose any in the second session and both Sharma and Rahane handled the England bowlers with ease.
 
Sharma, who was struggling to get a big score since his return to Test cricket last month, took the attack to the English bowlers in a confident manner. The 33-year-old batsman raced to 80 off 78 deliveries (13x4s, 1x6) to take India to 106 for three wickets at lunch despite India losing three wickets.
 
On a pitch that aided turn early on, England introduced left-arm spinner Jack Leach as early as the eighth over of the match. Sharma, however, looked in control and put India in the driver's seat before a couple of wickets late in the first session gave Joe Root's team some relief.
 
India had lost Shubman Gill early with the team still to open its account. But then Sharma and No.3 Cheteshwar Pujara (21) shared an 85-run partnership for the second wicket to help India move into a commanding position. The partnership was dominated by Sharma as he unleashed his strokes.
 
However, just as they looked like they were taking the game away from England, the spinners got into action. Leach got rid of Pujara having him caught at slip by Ben Stokes.
 
Soon after, off-spinner Moeen Ali, who was proving expensive, spun one back in through the gap between Kohli's bat and pad to dismiss him for a duck and reduce India to 86 for three.
