Crawley: India will be wary of bruised England
England opener Zak Crawley believes India will have concerns that the visitors can mount another miraculous comeback in the Second Test in Visakhapatnam.
Crawley top scored with 76 as Brendon McCullum's side were dismissed for 253, with India quick Jasprit Bumrah claiming 6-45.
The hosts ended day two on 28-0, with a lead of 171 in their second innings, but Crawley thinks England's heroic win in the First Test will have left a psychological mark on their opponents.
He said: "We were in a worse position than this last week, so we still believe we can win this game.
"It's always important to know you are playing against a side that will never give up and can fight back from any situation.
"That gives us a lot of heart. They will know we have got it in us. It's a mental game — it must play on their minds a little bit, for sure.
"Hopefully they believe a little bit we can win it and they have a little bit of doubt in their minds.
"We still massively believe we can win the game — we proved that last week. It's their day but we're still in it."
England came back from 190 runs behind after the first innings to win last week's First Test in Hyderabad by 28 runs.
This time around, Yashasvi Jaiswal's unbeaten double century has once again given India the advantage, with Bumrah pleased to help cement the hosts' superiority.
He said: "I was very happy to execute today and happy to contribute on that pitch.
"You understand because you are playing three spinners and they will do a lot of work but whatever role you have you have to try and make an impact.
"We wanted to capitalise as much as we can. Yashasvi played a brilliant innings and kept us in the game.
"The wicket is not doing a lot. There are no demons in the wicket. I feel the wicket is really good. Hopefully we can capitalise tomorrow."
