Rahul Dravid took over the coaching responsibility after Ravi Shastri’s tenure ended following the 2021 T20 World Cup. Since then, he has taken charge of coaching the India National Men’s Cricket Team. He has been coaching this team for the last two years now and has changed the approach in many ways for the players. The dressing room atmosphere has been very delightful under his coaching.

Rohit Sharma won the toss in Vizag and chose to bat first as Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a double century in the first innings which was followed by a brilliant performance by Jasprit Bumrah with the ball as he took a six-fer in the first innings for England. India gave a 399-run target to England laying back on the century by Shubman Gill in the second innings and the hosts are now cruising towards a victory to level the series 1-1.

India has not lost a Test series at home since the 2012 defeat against England by 2-1 when Sir Alastair Cook was leading the England side and MS Dhoni was the captain for India in Tests. The hosts have won 16 consecutive Test series at home and are looking to extend their streak to 17 after beating England in the ongoing Test series.
