Ep. 157 India v England: Ashwin and Rohit inspire fightback to win second Chennai test (ft. Nishad Pai Vaidya)

Normal service resumes as India beats England in the second Chennai test to level the test series 1-1. We talk about the important of the toss, the “unplayable” Chennai pitch, Rohit’s hundred, Kohli’s first innings dismissal, Kohli’s on-field antics, Ashwin’s genius and much more.

We pick the CEAT SecuraDrive player of the week – Ravichandran Ashwin for his eight wickets and second innings hundred – and our favourite player Rishabh Pant gets the CEAT puncture resistant performer of the week for his exciting batting and excellent keeping.

After the CEAT strategic time-out we talk with Nishad Pai Vaidya – sports anchor, broadcaster and writer on the Chennai crowd, the Chennai pitch and the importance of the toss.
