The ongoing Test match between India and England in Chennai has had fans around the world hooked with all eyes being on the action at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi has also proved that he has eyes on the same by taking an image of the stadium while the match was going on, during his visit to the state of Tamil Nadu to inaugurate a few projects.
The second Test is now poised in favor of India after a terrific performance by the Indian bowlers in England’s first innings led by Ravichandran Ashwin‘s five-wicket haul. After the surprise loss in the first Test where the side was completely outplayed, it now seems like normalcy has returned with all to play for, thanks to the World Test Championship (WTC) final being within touching distance.
