India vs England, 2nd Test: Kevin Pietersen Comes Up With Cheeky Tweet For Virat Kohli On

The Chennai pitch which is being used for the ongoing second Test between India and England has caught a lot of eyeballs on Twitter with former cricketers coming up with different opinion about the surface. The pitch helped spin bowlers from Day 1 and the second day’s play saw 15 wickets fell. Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen took to Twitter on Sunday and applauded India for preparing a “brave wicket” despite being down in the four-match series after losing the first Test. Taking a cheeky dig at India skipper Virat Kohli, Pietersen, in his tweet, wrote “well tossed” Virat Kohli.


Former England captain Michael Vaughan lavished praise on India for being the better side in the second Test but criticised the Chepauk pitch, calling it a shocker.

While another former England skipper Michael Atherton said that the pitch in Chennai is tricky but it has been the same from the start and hence toss wasn’t decisive. 

On Saturday, India won the toss and opted to bat on a dry pitch. 

The hosts lost Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli for nought but Rohit Sharma’s scintillating batting display helped India to post 329 in their first innings. 

Moeen Ali picked up four wickets while Olly Stone bagged three. 


In reply, England were bundled out for 134, giving India a first innings lead of 195 runs.

Ravichandran Ashwin was the star with the ball for the hosts as the off-spinner completed his 29th five-wicket haul in Test cricket.
