England suffered an embarrassing 317-run defeat in the second match of the four-match Test series against India, and India managed to equalize 1–1 in the series. After the Test defeat in Chennai, England captain Joe Root said it was a lesson for our team and we have a lot to learn from the opposing team. In addition, Root talked about the pitch and the team’s rotation policy.
England batsmen fell victim to the spin of Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin. He said, ‘For us it was like learning. We have to learn quickly because sometimes you have to deal with such situations. However, Root was not willing to believe that England would not be able to return to the series. He hoped the team would learn from their past performances. The England captain said, ‘As I said after the last match, it is necessary that our feet remain on the ground. When we win, we don’t have to be happy, we don’t have to be disappointed when we lose.

‘We’ve already made a comeback’
Root said, ‘We have played very challenging conditions and good cricket abroad. We sincerely believe that all three departments lost against India in this game. He said, ‘We see how they worked on the pitch that helped the spinners. Here the ball is bouncing more than we thought. We look at it from a learning standpoint and make sure it works well next time. ‘There was a lot of talk about this pitch on the Chepauk grounds. It was criticized by former England captain Michael Vaughan, who defended Australia’s legendary leg spinner Shane Warne.
‘It’s a challenging wicket. It was necessary to win the toss but it does not guarantee victory. “India has shown that it can run on this pitch and find a way to deal with it,” he said. We have to learn from India. Root said his bowlers should put pressure on batsmen. He said, ‘As a bowling unit we talked about maintaining constant pressure. We could have done it better. This is something we can do for the rest of the tour.

‘Not bowling with Stokes was part of our strategy’
“Our batsmen have to think about stealing a run on such a challenging pitch and going to the other end,” he said. Asked about all-rounder Ben Stokes’ poor performance in the match, he said the decision not to bowl was part of the strategy. He said, ‘Stokes is good and deserves to play. The decision to not bowl for more than one or two overs was part of the strategy because of the pitch condition. The fast bowlers bowled very little in this match. Root additionally advocates a team management rotation policy.
