Ind vs Eng: Piyush Chawla roars on Day 2

Piyush Chawla is the man of the Indian side who managed to stop the Poms in their tracks on Day 2 at the fourth and the final Nagpur Test. A test for Indian side to keep up their respect in the nation, They had done exceedingly well restricting the England on day one to a score under 200 but the visitors' lower middle order managed to take the helm of the game to gain a respectable score before they all turned to the pavilion.

After Pietersen's majestic innings brought down at 73, England had little hope but the late middle order batsmen came to their rescue. Root, Prior and Swann who scored over half century each were proving difficult to manage until Piyush dismissed Root and Ravichandran Ashwin struck to get his only wicket for the innings sending back Matt Prior. Swann who completely missed the googly legspin from Piyush had to turn back to the dressing room after being adjudged leg before.

The final straw in the hat was James Andersen who was caught by Pujara at short leg after he was fooled by a ball flighted from Piyush. England will return on the field before their tea break after lunch as they score a respectable 330/10 on a tough wicket at Nagpur. Has the Indian team learnt their lesson to score early in the game? We will find out soon.
