England have set a score of 569 in the first innings of the 3rd Test match between India and England. England managed to get over 500 easily thanks to their batsmen who have struck form at the right time specially Captain Alastair Cook and one of the experienced batsman in the team Ian Bell.

Coming in to bat in the 2nd innings India have already lost their opener Shikhar Dhawan. Will India be able to avoid follow-on? Only time will tell but let us take a look at highest scores by India against England in England in the 2nd innings of a Test Match –

Only one one instance have India managed to cross the 500 run mark in the 2nd inning of the Test match against England in England and expecting the team this time round to perform such a feat again and also better the record is slightly difficult but this is the team that can make miracles possible. But for India to better the 12 year old record the likes of Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara need to take responsibility and play some huge innings and they would also require a important support from others players like Dhoni, Rahane and Vijay

If at all Indian top and middle order manage to score somewhere close to 450 then we can depend a bit on our in-form lower order to score the remaining important runs.

How many runs do you think will India score in this match in the 2nd innings?
