IND vs ENG 2nd TEST Match Preview
India will take on England in the 2nd Test of the Paytm Test series on Saturday, 13th February, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Joe Root and his bunch played some top-class cricket to outclass India in the first Test by a whopping margin of 227 runs and India would like to make a comeback at the first opportunity.
While England will be without their wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler and star bowler Jofra Archer, India will be happy to have the services of Axar Patel back after he was declared fit before the second Test. Not just the series, the second Test is also very crucial from the point of view of the World Test Championship (WTC), as the host slipped to fourth place after the loss in the first Test.
This is the perfect event for the fantasy sports enthusiast to predict their fantasy team. So here are the match details, pitch report, weather forecast, head to head, top picks, probable playing 11 and dream11 fantasy team predictions for the 2nd Test between India and England.

IND vs ENG 2nd Test Weather & Pitch Report
It will be hot in Chennai for all five days of the Test match, with the temperature hovering around 26 to 30°C. There are no chances of rain for all five days.
The surface at MA Chidambaram is expected to be favourable for batsmen and spinners, and perhaps more sporting than the 1st Test, after the Indians expressed their disappointment with the wicket used, following a chastening 227-run loss.
The captain winning the toss is likely to bat first, considering England won the first Test at the same venue last week by making full use of the batting-friendly conditions of Day 1.
