Business tycoon Anand Mahindra has replied to Prime Minister Narendra Modi after he caught a 'fleeting view' of the ongoing second Test match between India and England at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Sunday, February 14. 

Taking to the micro-blogging site, PM Modi had shared the image along with a caption that read, 'Caught a fleeting view of an interesting test match in Chennai'. The image must have been clicked while he was on a 3-hour visit to Chennai to lay the foundation stone of several important projects and to inaugurate other projects in the poll-bound state of Tamil Nadu. 

'An unfair advantage in...'

Taking to the micro-blogging site, the Chairman of Mahindra Group jokingly wrote that PM Modi has an unfair advantage in being able to obtain a ringside seat while still maintaining more than adequate ‘social distance!’.

India in the driver's seat

Ashwin's five-wicket haul, as well as vital contributions from other Indian bowlers, ensured that England were bundled out for a paltry total of 134 in reply to the hosts' first innings score of 329 as they enjoyed a mammoth lead of 195 runs. 

Team India's scoreboard in the second innings reads 54/1 with opener Rohit Sharma (25*) and number three Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara (7*) in the middle after the end of the second day's play.  The hosts now lead by 249 runs and will be looking to add more runs to their overnight score on Day 3 as the Chepauk wicket continues to deteriorate.
