Highlights

  • 19:50(IST)

    OUT: Kuldeep Yadav comes into the attack. And straightaway he manages to beat Stokes thrice in three deliveries. This is great bowling by him. And he strikes. A shortish delivery pitched outside leg takes a faint edge off Buttlers bat. Dhoni completes a brilliant catch. Buttler departs for 53. It’s 198/5 after 39 overs.

  • 19:37(IST)

    FIFTY FOR BUTTLER: India are certainly looking to break this partnership and these two can change the game in last few overs. Pandya comes back for his 6th over and five runs come from it. More importantly Buttler brings up yet another fifty. England 188/4 after 36 overs.

  • 19:01(IST)

    FOUR, FOUR: England are slowly gaining momentum here. Buttler cracks two boundaries in the same over and takes England past 150. Stokes and Buttler have combined well to provide much-needed relief for the home side. 11 runs come from the over. It’s 153/4.

  • 18:49(IST)

    CHANCE: Pandya runs in and delivers it in the perfect spot to get Buttler’s edge. But there is no one in the slips to take the catch. In fact the ball goes for a four. Buttler makes a fine comeback as he dispatches the ball for another four through the covers. 10 runs come from the over. It’s 134/4 in 25 overs.

  • 18:28(IST)

    WICKET: Yuzvendra Chahal has picked another wicket for India. He flighted the ball to Morgan’s pads and the batsman plays a risky shot towards midwicket. Raina makes no mistake and takes a simple catch. Morgan, who was looking positive, succumbs to the pressure. It’s 107/4 after 20 overs.

  • 18:26(IST)

    FOUR, FOUR: Hardik Pandya comes back into the attack. This has somewhat brought change in fortunes for England. The ball is coming on to the bat nicely and Morgan pulls him through the midwicket boundary for a four. He then follows it up with another boundary through mid off. 12 runs come from the over as England bring up their 100. It’s 104/3 in 19 overs.

  • 18:21(IST)

    FOUR: And a boundary comes after a long, long time. Morgan takes the aerial route and sends the ball to the midwicket boundary for a four. But still not much damage is done in the over as just five runs come from it. It’s 92/3 after 18 overs.

 

20:07(IST)Umesh into his third spell. It looks like England will face a stiff challenge to post 250 also with the speed at which they are batting. There is no urgency to up the scoring rate. Three runs come from the 43rd over as Stokes is on 49. It’s 212/5 after 43 overs.

 

20:02(IST)The fall of a wicket at this stage is not helping England. The boundaries have completely dried up and new man Ali is taking time to adjust. On the other hand Stokes is yet to fire all cylinders. Four runs come from Chahal’s four overs. England 209/5 in 42 overs.

 

20:01(IST)Kuldeep continues to pile on the pressure on the batsmen and gives away three runs in his 9th over. He deserves all the credit for preventing England from putting up  a huge total. It’s 205/5 in 41 overs.

 

19:55(IST)After Buttler’s departure, in comes Moeen Ali. Now England need to accelerate and score some quick runs. Ali is capable of playing the big shots, but it remains to be seen if he can target the spinners. 200 comes up for England in Chahal’s over. But unfortunately they can’t get a boundary. England 202/5 in 40 overs.

 

19:50(IST)OUT: Kuldeep Yadav comes into the attack. And straightaway he manages to beat Stokes thrice in three deliveries. This is great bowling by him. And he strikes.

19:46(IST)All the Indian bowlers have played their part in this match. What has been really impressive from the bowling unit is that they haven’t bowled too many loose balls expect for an odd extra. Pandya too has been spot on with his line and length to deny boundaries to the English. Four runs come from the over. It’s 195/4 after 38 overs.

 

19:42(IST)Kaul starts a fresh over. Although he has not picked up a wicket yet, he has certainly impressed with his tight line and length. Even towards the end of the innings he is not giving English batsmen any chance to freeze their arms. Three runs scored from the over. It’s 191/4 after 37 overs.

 

19:37(IST)FIFTY FOR BUTTLER: India are certainly looking to break this partnership and these two can change the game in last few overs. Pandya comes back for his 6th over and five runs come from it. More importantly Buttler brings up yet another fifty. England 188/4 after 36 overs. 

 

19:33(IST)Buttler and Stokes have certainly revived England after they were reduced to 105/4. But the bigger question is whether they can power their way to 300 or not. Four runs come from Siddarth Kaul’s over. It’s 183/4 after 35 overs.

 

19:29(IST)This is the period where England should be looking to score runs. They have faced the fast bowlers much better as compared to the spinners. But it wouldn’t be easy to dispatch Umesh Yadav for easy runs. He too has bowled tight lines. On the last ball of the over Buttler walks down the track and guides the ball through the covers for a four. It’s 179/4 after 34 overs.

 

19:21(IST)Kaul is back into the attack. This is a good opportunity for him to get a wicket in his debut game and when England are under pressure. Stokes abruptly moves away from the stumps when Kaul is in his delivery stride. Will we see another heated exchange between the two teams? The bowler keeps his calm and gives away 6 runs in the over. It’s 172/4 in 33 overs.

 

19:16(IST)After a long while Umesh Yadav comes back into the attack. In the last match England produced record score of 481, but they don’t seem to getting anywhere close to 300 runs here. Yadav bowls a clean over here as just 4 runs come from it. England 166/4 in 32 overs.

19:07(IST)Chahal continues. Four runs come from the over. Now England would look to up the ante and score some quick runs. On a great pitch they haven’t been allowed by the Indian batsmen to score freely. It’s 158/4 after 30 overs.

 

19:04(IST)Kuldeep has been a class apart in this match. While Stokes and Buttler are starting to comfortable against other bowlers, they still don’t have any answers to Kuldeep’s wrist spin. Just one runs comes from the over. It’s 154/4 after 29 overs.

18:49(IST)CHANCE: Pandya runs in and delivers it in the perfect spot to get Buttler’s edge. But there is no one in the slips to take the catch. In fact the ball goes for a four.

18:37(IST)Chahal comes for another over. Stokes has looked completely out of sorts, but has not thrown his wicket away till now. England need a special effort from him and is well capable of doing that. Just one run comes from the over. It’s 111/4 after 22 overs.

 

18:35(IST)The new man in is Jos Buttler. One would feel that he should have come out to bat earlier, given his great form. He could perhaps have bailed England out of this tricky situation.

18:16(IST)Suresh Raina is playing his part with the ball. Till now he has complemented Yadav well and has managed to put the brakes on scoring rate. Another great over comes to an end as England score three runs. It’s 86/3 after 16 overs.
