Ravichandran Ashwin on Friday picked up a six-wicket haul to help bowl out England for 400 in the first innings. The visitors managed to put on 112 runs for the loss of five wickets on Day 2.

In reply, India lose KL Rahul early. The right-hander was cleaned up by a beauty from Moeen Ali.

With the pitch providing plenty of assistance to the spinners, the Indian batting line-up will have to dig deep in order to take a first innings lead.

09:20 IST: Welcome all! We are LIVE now for the DAY 2 action of the 4th Test between India and England.

The match is evenly poised at the moment and the team that dominates the first session on Day 2 will have an edge.

Should England get to the 400-run mark, Virat Kohli and the Indian team will be under immense pressure.

However, if the visitors are bundled out for 325 the advantage will lie with the home side.

Analysing the action on the opening day, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar told NDTV that Kohli and Co had missed the services of injured pacer Mohammed Shami.

India's pacers failed to impress on surface that offered plenty of support for the spinners.

Kohli is likely to bring Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja into play early on Day 2 in an attempt to break the Buttler-Stokes stand.

Incidentally, England have won the last two matches they have played here -- in 2006 and 2012.

India have won 10 out of 24 matches at the venue.
