Morning and welcome back. Hands up who likes it spicy? India looked to have got themselves into a good position at the end of day one thanks to a Rohit Sharma masterclass, and they’ll hope to add a few more this morning before it’s England turn to tango on this dancing Chepauk deck. The suspicion is that 300-plus could already be a defining total, but Rishabh Pant won’t want to stop there – and if the pitch continues to snap, crackle and pop, it should be plenty fun to watch. Buckle up.
