Having lost the closely-contested first Test by a margin of 31 runs, skipper Virat Kohli indicated that his team could field two spinners to capitalise on the pitch when it is worn out while speaking at a press conference ahead of the second Test. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow had a good outing and surprisingly, Sam Curran came up with a vital cameo to guide England to a challenging total.
"I know that might be seen as quite a big jump".
Kohli added: "I definitely leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting in there, talking to the guys wherever I can from the strategy point of view as well".
"I'm looking forward to him, more than anything, just going out there and being himself - and playing exactly as he has done throughout this summer".

Kohli, whose magnificent first-innings century and second-innings rearguard could not save his side from defeat at Edgbaston, also had some mixed advice for England's newest recruit, Pope. "I am happy for him - as a cricketer I understand how important it is". If I hadn't got the runs and we had won, I would have got a totally different feeling.
"Ben Stokes is unavailable, but Chris Woakes, with some extra matches and practices under his belt, can now return to the Englandsquad after injury", Smith concluded.
