India placed themselves in a commanding position by stretching their overall lead to 249 runs at stumps on the second day of the second Test against England in Chennai on Sunday. 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. India bowled out England for 134 in their first innings to take a massive first-innings lead of 195 runs. India were 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. 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 in the day, India added only 29 runs to their overnight score of 300 for six as Moeen Ali finished with 4/128 and Olly Stone 3/47 after Rishabh Pant's enterprising 58 with seven fours and three sixes. Catch cricket scores and Day 2 highlights of India vs England, second Test here:
