Normal service resumes as India beats England in the second Chennai test to level the test series 1-1. We talk about the important of the toss, the “unplayable” Chennai pitch, Rohit’s hundred, Kohli’s first innings dismissal, Kohli’s on-field antics, Ashwin’s genius and much more.

We pick the CEAT SecuraDrive player of the week – Ravichandran Ashwin for his eight wickets and second innings hundred – and our favourite player Rishabh Pant gets the CEAT puncture resistant performer of the week for his exciting batting and excellent keeping.

After the CEAT strategic time-out we talk with Nishad Pai Vaidya - sports anchor, broadcaster and writer on the Chennai crowd, the Chennai pitch and the importance of the toss.
