IND vs ENG 2nd Test 2024: Visakhapatnam Cricket Stadium Pitch Report, Avg Score, Highest Total and More Today Match

India vs England 2nd Test of the 5 match Test Series is going to be played at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam from 2nd February 2024. India lost the first match of the Test Series and would look to come back strongly in this one. On the other hand, England will continue with its winning bazball formula.

The Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium pitches have favored batsmen while providing assistance to fast bowlers and spinners as the match progresses, typical of wickets in the region. Expectations lean towards a spinning track for the upcoming IND vs ENG Test, though hosts are cautious following previous experiences, particularly against Australia last year.

However, Vizag’s black soil wickets may not offer as much bounce as Hyderabad’s. In the last Test held at the venue, India secured victory by 203 runs against South Africa, with Mohammed Shami (5 for 35) and Ravindra Jadeja (4 for 87) leading the charge on the final day.

Despite India fielding only two specialist spinners, a pacer played a significant role, potentially averting a draw. Across both Tests, teams batting first have won twice, with captains often choosing to bat first to capitalize on easier scoring conditions. The average scores further support the advantage of batting first.
