India captain Virat Kohli will want to go on and score a lot more runs on day two of the second Test against EnglandReuters

Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara took hold of the cricketing headlines on Thursday, with both of India's superlative batsmen scoring brilliant hundreds on day one of the second Test match against England, held in Visakhapatnam. On Friday, Kohli will want to continue to hog the limelight, by adding a fair few more runs to the 151 he already has to his name.

While Pujara got out in the final sessions of the opening day, Kohli is still very much there and looking in the mood for another big score. Having notched two double centuries already this year, the odds are in Kohli's favour to add the 49 needed to make it three in 2016, and with it take India to a position where they might not need to bat again.

There is no doubt that this pitch in Visakhapatnam is much better suited to India than the one in Rajkot, but it still remains to be seen how much it misbehaves and when. The first day was good for batting, and while there was the odd ball that stayed low or spun a touch, most of the time, it was "make hay while the sun shines for the batsmen" time.

Kohli and Pujara did that splendidly, and now what India need to make sure is they do not throw away the advantage. While 317/4 might sound like a good score after day one, India still have a lot of work to do with their batting.

They must make sure they reach at least 450 to put the scoreboard pressure on England. Kohli needs to take the lead again in that regard, while the likes of R Ashwin, Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja need to contribute.

England will know, or hope, that if they get Kohli early in the morning, there is a good chance of keeping India below 400. While the score will still be a decent one, it would give England some sort of confidence when they go into bat.

James Anderson will be the key in the morning, with the fast bowler showing why he is such a class act by taking three of the four wickets that fell on Thursday. Anderson swung the new ball late in the evening, but that might have been because it was under lights. The pacer will hope he is able to move the ball again in the morning, because if he does, India will find it difficult.
