Michael Vaughan: Former captain of the England cricket team and the best captain Michael Vaughan believes that scoring 300 runs in the first innings at this stadium is equal to 500.
In the second Test match between India and England, the Indian team won the toss and decided to bat first.
He said, India won the toss and elected to bat on this wicket first. Which will deteriorate as the game progresses and it will become very difficult to bat on the third and fourth days of this test match.
I reckon 300 in the 1st innings is the equivalent of 500 last week on this Chennai beach !!! #INDvsENG

Michael Vaughn tweeted and that’s why I estimate 300 in the first innings, which is equal to 500 runs on this pitch.
On the first day of the second Test match, Indian opener batsman Rohit Sharma hit his seventh Test century.
But England’s spin bowlers dismissed Virat Kohli to zero Cheteshwar Pujara and Oli Stone dismissed Shubman Gill to zero.
He was followed by Ajinkya Rahane, the vice-captain of the Indian team who came to bat. The Indian batsman supported Rohit Sharma quite well.
After which both these players did not let the wicket of a session India fall. After that Rohit Sharma completed his century.
Slowly he was approaching his 150 runs, then Ajinkya Rahane also completed his half-century. There was a good partnership between these two players.
Due to this, the score of the Indian team is 300 at the loss of 6 wickets. Although Rohit Sharma missed his double century, he scored 161 runs during his innings.
During this, he also faced 181 fours and two skyscraper sixes, facing 231 balls. After Rohit Sharma was dismissed, young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant came to support Rahane.
But shortly after Rohit’s dismissal, Ajinkya also lost his wicket on the score of 67 runs. During this time he faced 159 balls which included 9 fours.
His wicket was taken by the spin bowler Moin Ali of England. R Ashwin came to the crease after Rahane was dismissed.
He supported Rishabh Pant but when 35 runs were shared between these two players, then only Ashwin caught on Joe Root.
Then gradually the score of India reached 300 runs, after which the end of the first day was announced. Rishabh Pant is present at the crease by scoring 33 and Akshar Patel 5 before the first day’s game ends.
