Shreyas Iyer Departs!

An unexpected wicket for England. Iyer backs away to cut on a short ball outside off, but the ball remains low and goes under the keeper's legs. What a grab from Foakes. It's not easy taking the under-edge like that, but he managed to remain low enough. Iyer shakes his head as he walks away. Debutant Rajat Patidar is the new man at the crease.

Captain Speak

Rohit Sharma | India Captain: We'll bat first. Looks a good pitch, the pitch will do its thing, we need to play good cricket. What happened in Hyderabad is history, we need to move on. We have spoken on things we need to do, now we need to execute on our plans. I thought we batted well in the first innings, but didn't have the same intent in the second. Similarly, in the second innings with the bowl there was a brilliant knock by Ollie Pope. Injuries are part and parcel of the game, but that's why we have the guys sitting on the bench. Two unforced changes - Jadeja and KL miss out, and Siraj has been rested. We've got Mukesh, Kuldeep coming in, and Rajat Patidar making his debut.

Ben Stokes | England Captain: Would have batted as well. It was a fantastic last week, but we know India will come back strong. Coming from behind as we did was incredibly satisfying. We'll take the confidence from it, but it's a new week. The youngsters had a fantastic time playing in this environment. Receiving such a chance at the outset of their profession will boost their confidence. Two changes: Shoaib Bashir and James Anderson replace Jack Leach and Mark Wood.

Pitch Report

The wicket appears to be an ideal surface for batting. All English supporters would be smiling at it. The top layer is black soil, and below it is red. On Day 1, there will be some turns, but not too many. Definitely a win-toss, bat-first type of wicket. Both teams will use plenty of spinners, but we expect them to enter the game later in the Test. The first two days are clearly going to be better for batting.
