The Indian team had to face defeat in the first match of the 5 test match series against England. Team India will now look to win the second match at Visakhapatnam to level the series at 1-1. In the first Test, India’s batsmen clearly struggled against England’s spin bowlers, with left-arm spinner Tom Hartley giving them the most trouble. In such a situation, before the second match in Visakhapatnam, the Indian players were seen making special preparations to face the spinners in the nets.

Practicing sweeps and reverse sweep shots vigorously

The second Test match at the Visakhapatnam ground will start from February 2 and both the teams have already reached there. According to PTI News, the players of Team India practiced the sweep and reverse sweep shots at the net during practice on January 31. Let us tell you that in the first Test, England players scored a lot of runs against the Indian spinners through these shots. Now the Indian players are also planning to play in the same style. Besides Shibman Gul, Rajat Patidar’s name is among the players who practiced playing these shots at the net. About the players’ practice of these shots, batting coach Vikram Rathore said that it (sweep and reverse sweep) is not something you can try. You need to practice it. This is beneficial if you have more shots. We play in a traditional way. Our strength is playing straight with the bat and using our feet. We need to do it well.

Such was the record of the Indian team in Visakhapatnam.

Before this second test match played at Visapatnam ground, if we look at the record of team India here, 2 matches have been played and in both the matches the Indian team has won brilliantly. When India played their first match here in 2016, it was against England and they won by 246 runs.
