India lost the first test at home since 2017.
India was bowled out for 192 on the final day of the first Test in Chennai, losing by 227 runs against England, Currently, England is leading this series by 1-0.
Indian opener started positively in the second innings, with Shubman Gill finding his timing to hit Leach for three consecutive boundaries after Root chose to make his left-arm spinner.
On the other hand, Rohit pulled Archer for a six on the square leg but when Leach stuck to remove him with seven overs remaining.
Cheteshwar Pujara came to bat until stumps. Given Pujara’s ability to soak up pressure against the seamers and score freely against spin, his innings could well determine the result of this match.
Despite flawless innings of 72 from Virat Kohli, India’s chances were quashed by the loss of five wickets in the first session, and after a grubber from Ben Stokes snuck under Kohli’s bat, Leach and Archer finished the job to seal a sixth consecutive away win for England.
This was only India’s second defeat at home since their 2-1 series loss to England in late 2012 and leaves them needing at least two wins and a draw in the remaining three matches
