Lokesh Rahul (10) and Pujara then tried to repair the damage work but Anderson once again struck to dismiss Rahul. He was adjudged leg before wicket in the seventh over. Rahane and Pujara then played sensibly and did not lose their wickets till the end of the first session. The second session saw the same struggle as England pacer Stuart Broad took all the four wickets in the session to push India on the verge of defeat in the second Test, with the tourists reaching 66/6 at tea. Broad's fiery spell swept aside India's batting spine, with Ajinkya Rahane (13), Cheteshwar Pujara (17), Virat Kohli (17) and Dinesh Karthik (0) falling to the right-armer, leaving the visitors trailing by 223 runs. The Indian batsmen have struggled throughout the session, being bowled out for a paltry 107 in the first innings. Resuming the second session at 17/2, Rahane was the first to go. The right-hander from Mumbai chased a wide delivery outside the off-stump only to edge it to Keaton Jennings at third slip.
