The southern city of Mohali has been confirmed as the venue for the second cricket test between England and India, starting on the 19th of this month, after passing a final security inspection.

Mohali replaced Mumbai as a test venue following the terrorist attacks in India's financial centre.

With the first test starting later today in Chennai, the Indian Cricket Board has applauded the magnificent gesture by the England players to donate half their match fees to families of those who lost their lives in the Mumbai terrorist attacks.
