After going 0-1 down early in the series, India look to settle the scores in the Vishakapatnam test. The second test has started today and India after winning the toss has no qualms to opt to bat first. The pitch looks decent and is going to assist batting for the first 2 days. It is going to be a spinners paradise after that. So, it is a good choice to bat first early in the test.

Team India had made three changes to the playing XI and two of them were forced. KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja are injured. So Rajat Patidar is making his test debut and Kuldeep Yadav is going to play the test. The management also rested Mohammed Siraj and in his place, Mukesh Kumar is playing in the test.

Here is the playing XI of Team India:

Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubhman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mukesh Kumar.
