IND vs ENG, 2nd test: Kevin Pietersen comes out with cheeky tweet for Virat Kohli on “Brave” Chepauk pitch


The Chennai field used for the ongoing second test between India and England has attracted a lot of attention on Twitter, with former cricketers coming up with differing views on the surface. The field helped bowlers turn from day 1, and 15 wickets fell on the second day. Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen took to Twitter on Sunday and applauded India for preparing a “brave wicket” despite being in the four-game streak after losing the first Test. A brutal dig to Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Pietersen, wrote in his tweet “well-thrown” Virat Kohli.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan praised India for being the better side in the second Test, but criticized the Chepauk field, calling it a shocker.

While another former England skipper Michael Atherton said the field in Chennai is tricky but has been the same from the start and therefore throwing was inconclusive.

On Saturday, India won the coin toss and chose to hit on a dry pitch.

The hosts lost to Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli to nothing, but Rohit Sharma’s scintillating batting game helped India to place 329 in their first innings.

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


In response, England got 134 runs to give India a 195-run lead in the first innings.

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