Anil Kumble: James Anderson has been very important player for England

The leggie hoped that he would be able to carry the rhythm into the second Test, saying that he confidence he gained after the ODI fifer against the Kiwis would stand him in good stead. "It's within the rules and the regulations", Virat Kohli told media in a press conference on the eve of the second Test.

"Sometimes you tend to overthink, thinking too much about where the bowler is going to bowl or what he is going to do next to get you out and how much time is left in the day".

The Indian team has included KL Rahul in the squad, who scored a classy 76 in the most recent Ranji match for Karnataka, leaving Gautam Gambhir's place in jeopardy.

Earlier, the opening match between the two sides ended in a dramatic draw after skipper Virat Kohli (unbeaten at 49) and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja (unbeaten at 32) defended stoutly and saved the blushes for their side. Rahul had hurt his hamstring during the Kanpur Test against New Zealand in late September and had to endure a long layoff of nearly seven weeks. Amit Mishra was picked as the third spinner keeping in mind the batting-friendly history of Rajkot, but he came out of the Test - his first in three months - conceding more than four runs an over in both innings.

"We were very clear in our heads that as soon as KL Rahul is fit, we will call him back into the squad".

"The way the 11 guys played in the last game was outstanding, so it's rotation policy or do you stick with what you've got?" Woakes is the one we're looking at because of the amount of overs he's bowled.

"When he is fit at any stage, he comes back into the team and we are going to start with him. But you can expect some surprise selections as well", Kohli said, reported Crictracker.

As India are expected to play their next few matches on rank turners, they would be in the need of technically sound players who can take on the more than effective English spinners. There were three centurions from the England side and their team put up an imposing total of 537 to challenge India.

The Indian captain also said that the team is working hard to improve their fielding after the Indian fielders dropped multiple catches in the first Test.

"My fitness is good and I am batting really well and have got runs in the Ranji Trophy game against Team Rajasthan".

Asked whether England would name an unchanged side after impressing in last week's drawn series-opener, Cook said: "I can't quite answer that just yet".
