  • Okay then! End of a fairly one-sided ODI series. The T20Is were more competitive, in my opinion. India won that 2-1 while England have done that in the ODIs. The teams now get ready for a 5-match Test series and surprisingly, neither side has announced its squad yet. That begins on the 1st of August, 2018 at Edgbaston, Birmingham. That is all from us for tonight. Before we leave, please do follow cricket from other parts of the world - Zimbabwe playing Pakistan, Sri Lanka taking on South Africa and of course, Windies playing Bangladesh. Plenty of cricket. Take some rest for now. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • Victorious English captain, Eoin Morgan, terms the win as OUTSTANDING. Stresses that the win was set up by Mark Wood and David Willey - especially because the ball swung for only the first 3-4 overs but they adjusted well and changed their line and length. Feels good about the run chase too, not giving India too many opportunities. On his decision at the toss, he says that he expected the pitch to be a belter, giving a chase of around 300-320 but then praises his bowlers for keeping India quiet. On his own success, he says that any captain is only as good as his team and his players are responsible for England's status today. Admits that India thrashed his side at Trent bridge but then his unit bounced back. Agrees that they have managed to pick Kuldeep Yadav well as the series progressed. Is now looking to the future ahead for England in the coming months - Sri Lanka in the Island nation, then the Windies at home.
  • Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, admits that India were never on the mark as far as the runs on the board were concerned - 25 or 30 less is the number. Praises England for being on the mark with the ball and feels they deserved the win. On the pitch, he feels that it was a bit damp at the start, then became two-paced and against the spinners, it became really slow, which made matters difficult for the Indian batsmen. Praises Moeen and Rashid for bowling well in pairs and stifling his team well. On the team changes, Virat says that it was a tactical decision - Bhuvneshwar was fit while Thakur looked good in his last game - hence both came in. As far as Karthik is concerned, he says that he wanted to give him a good run in the middle order. Stresses that tactical decisions look good when they come off but questionable when they don't. On being asked about the World Cup in 2019, VK says that these kind of losses show them exactly what needs to be rectified in the remaining 16-17 matches to the major event. On the upcoming Test series, he says that India are not too worried about the 5-match series as his batsmen are in really good form and he expects a fine contest with England expected to give them a run for their money. On being asked about Rashid dismissing him, Kohli manages a smile and says that he has played Rashid since the Under-19s and is surprised to see him not turning the ball as much as he was doing at that age. Says that Rashid is a quality bowler and bowled really well today.
  • JOE ROOT IS THE MAN OF THE SERIES for scoring 216 runs being dismissed only once. He says that it feels fantastic coming into a big series and perform the way his side has done. States that it is a testament to the way the team has performed in the past few months. Praises the bowlers for bowling really well and then the way the run chase was handled - ruthless is the word he chooses. On the pitch and the run chase, he says that there was hardly any scoreboard pressure thanks to the bowlers and it was only about building partnerships. On fighting his way back to form, he says that he just backed himself, trusted in his abilities and it all got together. On England's excellent ODI record at Headingley (winning 5 on the trot), he smiles and says that he is not too sure about the reason for that but as far as today's game is concerned, he says that the team was up for it, as it was a finale. Is now looking forward to the Test series against India, citing them as a very good and dangerous team.
  • ADIL RASHID IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS 3/49. He feels that all the seniors played really well today. Adds that all the bowlers bowled tight lines and got their rewards. Stressing further, he says that the seamers stuck to their lengths and the spinners just concentrated on hitting the right areas. On being asked about dismissing Kohli, he says it gives a lot of confidence in dismissing the best batsman in the world but what satisfies him even more is that the team profited by it. Thanks the crowd for coming out in numbers to support them.
  • The one ball which changed the match - 30.1 - Adil Rashid bowling to Virat Kohli in supreme form, only to see the batsman miss a fairly normal leg spinning ball, to skid through and hit the timber. India lost momentum from there. At that stage, with the score reading 156, possibly 270-280 was on the cards. Then, when Hardik and Dhoni were batting, India sensed a fightback. But the former's wicket robbed them of momentum again and the quickfire 35-run stand for the 8th wicket in 25 balls between Bhuvi and Shardul was just a factor of giving the total a decent look. The presentation is coming up...
  • How good were England with the ball early on? They were the ones responsible for the visitors not putting any pressure. Mark Wood and David Wiley bowled a sensational opening spell, even though it did not have enough wickets and then the spin twins took over. Adil Rashid took 3 wickets, continuing his excellent form this year while David Willey came back towards the end to take a 3-fer.
  • 'If Kohli does not get a hundred, India are going to lose' - a strong statement by Sourav Ganguly on air. No, I don't want to be a cheeky press writer trying to catch the reader's attention with quirky headlines. What Ganguly said before that was - if India's batting does not support Kohli, it will suffer in the long run. Kohli said at the toss that he wanted to bat first any which ways but Morgan had judged the pitch to perfection. He expected the track to get better as the game progressed and that is exactly what happened - it seemed like someone had changed the pitch in the innings break.
  • Now, about Joe Root. He has registered his 13th ODI ton, the most by an English player, going past Marcus Trescothick. There were fingers pointed at him due to his sorry form in T20Is - so much so that he had taken a break in the early part of the year from that format - pulling himself out of the T20I tri-series against England and New Zealand. Then he came back here, struggled against Australia, where he managed just one 50 in 5 innings but here, with consecutive hundreds, he has done himself no harm with a cracker of a Test series coming up...
  • While we are harping over the ease with which England chased down a fairly competitive total today, one also needs to look at how India bowled and fielded. They seemed to lack intent - as if already having given up on the chase. The fielding was lacklustre too which did not help their cause. And the 'KULCHA' today did not work well for India - wicketless in 20 overs - the FIRST TIME it has happened when both have played in an ODI. Bhuvi was rusty, Pandya was not at his best while Thakur lacked experience.
  • A perfectly planned run chase by the home side. First Bairstow set the tone by trying to catch the 7 pm train in a 13-ball 30 which had 7 boundaries in it. That gave England enough runs as a cushion to play out Kuldeep and Chahal with ease. Morgan and Root then eased themselves into form, especially the latter, who will be crucial in the 5-match Test series to follow after this.
  • The number 1 side has strut its stuff. Is this a big statement going into the 2019 World Cup? You never know. Probably, the two finalists have played this series? Too early to say but the roadmap seems to give that indication.
  • 44.3FOUR! CENTURY FOR ROOT, SERIES FOR ENGLAND! What a knock... consecutive tons for the man who was 'out of form'. A high full toss outside off, Root heaves it over mid-wicket and finds the boundary! First, we check whether it is a waist high no ball, but it is fine and Root hugs his skipper! Well played, England. Well played, Root.
  • 44.3WIDE! The crowd goes 'BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!' to Pandya now. He bowls a really bad delivery, way outside off, so far that Root cannot reach it. The poor batsman looks dejected as the scores are level now and he still needs 4...
  • 44.2Full and wide outside off, Joe slashes hard but misses.
  • 44.1Excellent fielding by Dinesh Karthik! Guess who will be the happiest seeing that? Joe Root. He pulls this short delivery outside off towards deep mid-wicket and nearly gets it to the fence. That would have sealed the match with Root stranded on 98. But Dinesh Karthik gets to the ball from mid-wicket and pulls it back in! Two runs taken, now he is still in with a chance to get his ton! England need 2, he needs 4!
  • 43.6'ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!' goes the crowd. Can he get to his century with a biggie? A short ball around off, Morgan looks to defend but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. Thakur finishes with figures of 10-0-51-1. Bowled decently though. 253/2
  • 43.5Is that a nick? No... if you are an opposition of India today. A touch short outside off, Morgan flashes hard but misses.
  • 43.4On a length around off, coming in, watchfully defended.
  • 43.3The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 43.3WIDE. Full and wide outside off, Eoin reaches out for that but misses.
  • 43.2Around off, worked through mid-wicket for a run. Okay... Root is still in with an outside chance... if Morgan takes a single and Root hits the final ball for a six...
  • 43.1Outside off, pushed towards cover for a single. Root needs 7, England 6.
  • 42.6Landed outside off, on a length, pushed towards third man for another single. 250 UP FOR ENGLAND - Just 7 more needed at run-an-over. 250/2
  • 42.5Full and outside off, pushed towards mid off for one. The equation reads - England 8, Root 7.
  • 42.4Short and outside off, punched through point for a run.
  • 42.4ANOTHER WIDE! England 10, Root 8 now! Full and down the leg side, EM cannot get that fine.
  • 42.4WIDE. A slower bouncer, around off, Eoin lets it pass. The equation - England 11, Root 8.
  • 42.3DROPPED! Nothing... nothing is going right for India or Bhuvi today. A full toss on middle, Morgan chips it over mid on, or looks to, rather. He does not get enough on it and presents a fairly simple catch to Bhuvneshwar Kumar over there - who just spills it.
  • 42.2Full and outside off, driven through the covers for a single. He needs 8 more, his team 12.
  • 42.1On a length outside off, driven straight to point.
  • Hardik Pandya given an opportunity. 4-0-26-0 so far.
  • 41.6That ball has taken the inside edge onto the pads. 244/2
  • 41.5On the pads, helped through square leg for a single.
  • 41.4Gets another straight drive but Bhuvi comes in the way this time.
  • 41.3Gets it straighter, Joe defends.
  • 41.2FOUR! AWESOME! The Test skipper is into the 90s while England are 14 away from a win. Will he get to triple figures? Full and outside off, Root drives this straight back down the ground. Mid on and mid off gives up the chase as soon it bisects them.
  • 41.1Landed outside off, pushed towards point.
  • 40.6On a length outside off, Joe waits for the ball to come to him and steers it to third man for a single. 239/2
  • 40.5Full and outside off, driven straight to mid off.
  • 40.4Full on middle, pushed towards short mid-wicket.
  • 40.3A length ball outside off, Morgan looks to push this through the off side but gets a thick inside edge past the leg stump. A run taken.
  • 40.2The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.
  • 40.1Outside off, run down to third man for a single.
  • POWERPLAY 3 time. 5 fielders allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the end of the match.
  • 39.6A short ball, pulled through mid-wicket for a run. 236/2
  • 39.5Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 39.4A short ball, around middle, Morgan swivels to pull but is hurried into it. Gets a thick inside edge onto his pads and he scurries through for a single.
  • 39.3Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 39.2Around off, watchfully defended.
  • 39.1Short and outside off, cut through point for a single. The stand moves to 160 in 181 balls.
  • Shardul Thakur time. 7-0-40-1 so far.
  • 38.6On a length outside off, pushed towards point. 233/2
  • 38.5Full and outside off, pushed towards mid off for a run.
  • 38.4A rare false shot from Root. A short ball outside off, Joe looks to pull but does not move his feet and misses.
  • Bhuvi comes running in but then aborts his runup.
  • 38.3A length ball around off, Root looks to tuck it fine but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. Almost pops back to the bowler.
  • 38.2On middle and leg, tucked towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 38.1A short ball outside off, Morgan goes back and cuts it through point for a couple.
  • 37.6Driven towards the mid off region. 10-0-55-0 so far. What a falling graph for Kuldeep in his series - 6/25 in his first, followed by 3/68 and now tonight. 229/2
  • 37.5Outside off, punched through the covers for a single to move to 80 from 91 balls.
  • 37.4SIX! FETCH THAT! Dropped way too short outside off, Morgan goes back and deposits this over mid-wicket for a maximum. Raises the 150-RUN STAND in just 172 balls. 29 more needed from 74 balls.
  • 37.3Tossed up around off, Morgan lunges to block but the ball spins past the outside edge.
  • 37.2Outside off, steered towards third man for a triple. Moves to 81 from 97 balls.
  • 37.1Floated around off, watchfully defended.
  • Coasting. Are. England. So comfortable is this victory (assuming) that the only interest left in the game is whether either of Root or Morgan get to a century. Doubt whether both will.
  • 36.6The batsman plays it with an angled bat and guides it to third man. One run added to the total. 6 balls, 6 singles in that over. 219/2
  • 36.5Outside off, steered towards third man for one more.
  • 36.4A short ball outside off, Root gets on top of the bounce and punches it through point for another run.
  • 36.3A length ball down the leg side, helped through square leg for one.
  • 36.2Outside off, steered to third man for a run.
  • 36.1Down the leg side, tickled fine for a single.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back on. Has taken a pounding today - 4-0-36-0 so far.
  • 35.6The googly around off, Root stays back and comfortably defends. 213/2
  • 35.5The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 35.4Floated around off, pretty full, Morgan lunges to defend but is beaten.
  • 35.3Punched off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 35.2On middle and leg, defended from the crease,
  • 35.1A full toss around off, Root gets down and owes it towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 34.6The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. One run added to the total. 15 from the over, Chahal finishes with figures of 10-0-41-0. Decent economy but India would have loved to have something in the wickets' column. 211/2
  • 34.5FOUR! Puts this away. A high full toss, Root goes back and pulls it over mid-wicket for a boundary!
  • 34.5IT IS A NO BALL! Oh dear... not India's day at all, is it? Chahal has overstepped. It is a crime to bowl a no ball any which ways but by a spinner, well, it is an unpardonable offense. The third umpire has a check multiple times and every time we see with plenty of zoom in angles - Chahal's foot on the line, not behind. The ball is a beauty as is shown in the replays further. Tossed up, Root looking to flick but missing. Dhoni behind had whipped off the bails in a flash. Root was a goner! Just like the bowler, the batsman also had nothing behind the line...
  • A late hope for India? They have gone up for a stumping appeal against Root. Dhoni looks very confident...
  • 34.4NEARLY THROUGH HIM! India would have loved to see this happen in Chahal's first over. Tossed up outside off, Eoin lunges to defend but the ball spins in a mile and goes past the outside edge and over the stumps towards fine leg. Three runs taken as the ball stops near the boundary.
  • 34.3Full and outside off, driven through the covers for a run.
  • 34.2Full and outside off, Morgan looks to sweep but gets it off the inner half of the bat through square leg. A single taken.
  • 34.1FOUR! 200 UP FOR ENGLAND and they continue to cruise. 57 more needed now, from 95 balls. A short ball, Morgan goes back and pulls it towards mid-wicket, one bounce and into the fence.
  • 33.6Punched off the back foot by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single. 196/2
  • 33.5The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 33.4Floated outside off, watchfully defended.
  • 33.3The batsman works it down the leg side. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 33.2Around off, Root goes way back in his crease and pushes it towards slip.
  • 33.1Around middle and leg, Morgan lunges and tickles it towards fine leg for a single. The stand is worth 120 from 144 balls.
  • 32.6The batsman has swept that one through the leg side. The batsmen have run through for a single. 193/2
  • 32.5Full and outside off, Root gets down and sweeps it through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 32.4The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 32.3A full toss now, swatted towards backward square leg for a run.
  • 32.2Drops it short, Eoin goes back and pulls it towards fine leg for a single.
  • 32.1Full and outside off, Morgan looks to defend getting well across the line but misses and is hit on the pads. The Indian team might be looking down at the moment but captain Kohli has enough energy to shout for a LBW.
  • 31.6Outside off, punches it through point for a single. 69 more needed from 108 balls now. 188/2
  • 31.5The batsman has pushed it to the cover region.
  • 31.4Pushes it towards mid on for a single.
  • 31.3Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 31.2Lucky! Floated outside off, Root looks to drive through the off side but gets a thick inside edge which goes past the leg stump, past leg slip! Two runs taken.
  • 31.1A touch short on middle, Root goes back and works it towards square leg. Immediately, the Indian version of Zizou over here with us, says, 'He is bowling too slow. So much that Root has enough time to go back and play it from his crease.' And immediately we are shown Kohli's dismissal to Rashid who bowled quicker through the air.
  • Last throw of the dice for India and Kohli. Another go for Kuldeep Yadav. 6-0-36-0 so far.
  • 30.6Full and around middle, watchfully defended. 184/2
  • 30.5Another long hop, pulled through square leg for a run.
  • 30.4A touch short, helped through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 30.3Similar delivery, watchfully blocked out.
  • 30.2Full and around off, watchfully defended.
  • 30.1Full and outside off, pushed through point for a single.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal comes back on. Economical for sure - 7-0-21-0 - but England have done well to keep him wicketless so far.
  • 29.6A short ball again, pulled towards deep mid-wicket for another run. 181/2
  • 29.5Outside off, dabbed towards backward point. Wants a single but is sent back.
  • 29.4Around off, watchfully defended to the leg side.
  • 29.3DROPPED? Yes. MS Dhoni it is. Hard to say whether it would have mattered much in the context of the game but India's fielding has not been of the highest standard today. Down the leg side, Root tickles it fine, but almost gets it to the keeper behind. MS gets low but the ball brushes his left glove and dies down.
  • 29.2Full and outside off, placed with superlative timing wide of mid off for a single.
  • 29.1FOUR! FEROCIOUS! That may seem like a bad ball but Mike Atherton on air feels it is not a bad ploy to Morgan, albeit on a slower pitch. He has got issues against the short ball but he was in total control against this one. Pulls it behind square for a boundary.
  • 28.6The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot. The batsmen have run through for a single. 175/2
  • 28.5Outside off, dabbed to third man for a run. THE 100-RUN STAND IS UP! Can these two guide England home?
  • 28.4Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 28.3Banged in short, Eoin pulls this so ferociously that it almost carries to the man at the mid-wicket fence. Just a single.
  • 28.2Full on middle, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 28.1On a length and pretty straight, watchfully defended.
  • 27.6A short ball, pulled with disdain towards deep mid-wicket for another single. 172/2
  • 27.5FIFTY FOR MORGAN! The captain continues his wonderful run of form. Consecutive half centuries for him, following his wonderful 53 at Lord's. Full and wide outside off, the skipper reaches out for it and drives it through the covers for one.
  • 27.4Outside off, Root waits for the ball to come to him and steers it to third man for a run.
  • 27.3On middle and leg, tucked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 27.2FOUR! That is unlucky for the bowler on two counts. First, he induces an outside edge as Morgan looks to run it down to third man off a fuller length. The edge rolls onto the ground, wide of Dhoni and runs towards third man. Should have been a regulation stop by the fielder but Bhuvneshwar Kumar makes a hash of it, diving over the ball. He has had a day to forget so far. 88 more needed from 136 balls.
  • 27.1Full and just around off, watchfully defended.
  • 26.6Walks across his stick and looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. A leg bye is taken but no signal from the umpire. Must have been an inside edge. 165/2
  • 26.5Outside off, Root waits for the ball to come to him and runs it towards third man for one.
  • 26.4On middle and leg, tucked away for a run.
  • 26.3Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 26.2A short ball outside off, punched through the covers for a couple.
  • 26.1On a length outside off, punched through the covers for a single.
  • Hardik Pandya is back on. 2-0-17-0 so far.
  • 25.6The batsman appears to have been struck on the thigh pad. One run added to the total. The umpire signals a leg bye. 159/2
  • 25.5A short ball now, Root lets it go pass.
  • 25.4Outside off, punched towards cover for a single. 99 more needed from 146 balls.
  • 25.3FOUR! 25TH BOUNDARY OF THE INNINGS! This has been some batting display from the home side. They have strut their stuff and not allowed India to dictate terms at all. Slightly short outside off, Morgan goes back and cuts it behind point. The ball races away.
  • 25.2Nearly gives his wicket away. Outside off, angling away, Morgan pushes but misses.
  • 25.1Outside off, steered to third man for a single.
  • 24.6FOUR! Smacked! Tossed up ball on middle, Morgan charges towards the ball and smacks it along the turf straight back of the bowler. 150 up for the hosts. 105 more needed now with half the overs left. 152/2
  • 24.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 24.4Gets this off the inner half of the bat towards mid on. A single taken.
  • 24.3The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 24.2Hits this to the mid on region. Dot ball.
  • 24.1FOUR! And that's fifty for Root. A well played innings and he has taken the game away from the visitors. Goes forward and drives this ball through covers to get there. This is Root's 4th fifty plus score against India in the last 5 innings. ALSO, HE GOES PAST 2000 RUNS IN RUN-CHASES.
  • 23.6Similar ball, this time on the off side, Morgan pushes it to mid off. England need 114 runs in 156 balls at 4.38 rpo 143/2
  • 23.5Back of a length ball on leg, Morgan hops a touch and bunts it down.
  • 23.4Pushed to the cover region for one.
  • 23.3Morgan guides it to third man. One run added to the total.
  • 23.2Goes with the short one gain. Root pulls this in front of square to give his partner the strike.
  • 23.2Wide! Way too short for Root. Ducks under it and the umpire outstretches his arms.
  • 23.1Fuller ball on leg, Morgan hits this through covers. One run taken. .
  • Shardul Thakur comes in for another spell.
  • 22.6Leg break on middle, Root is solid in defense. 138/2
  • 22.5Flicks this ball off his pads to the fielder at mid-wicket.
  • 22.4JR rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball.
  • 22.3FOUR! Fuller ball down leg, Root stays back and sweeps this to the deep square leg region for a boundary. All England at the moment.

  • 20.6Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 131/2
  • 20.5FOUR! Fuller this time, Morgan lofts another one over cover-point for back-to-back boundaries. England are coasting at the moment.
  • 20.4FOUR! Inside-out! Glorious! Loopy ball on middle and off, Morgan makes room and lofts this over covers for a boundary. 50-run stand up between these two. Also brings up 3000 ODI runs for Morgan as captain.

  • 20.2Drives this through mid off and get to the other end.

  • 16.2Another loopy ball, pushes this to covers for one more.
  • 16.1Gives this air on middle and off, Root eases this to extra cover for an easy run.

  • 14.5Loopy ball around off, Root pushes this to mid off.

  • 14.3Slow ball outside off, Morgan pokes at it but misses.
  • 14.2MISFIELD! India have been ragged on the field so far and captain Kohli is certainly not happy. Very good ball to start with - a tossed up one outside off, Root looks to flick but gets a leading edge towards cover. Now, Kohli picks up the ball and as is his habit, fires a needless rocket-like throw to the bowler. Poor Kuldeep, tries to save himself from the throw and misses the ball. It goes all the way to the long on fence before it is retrieved by Shardul Thakur running to his left from mid-wicket. A dot is turned into three.
  • 14.1A touch short, around middle, flicked towards short mid-wicket.
  • 13.6Slower ball on middle, Morgan bunts it down. 96/2
  • 13.5Root has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total.

  • 12.2FOUR! Misfield and another boundary results. Pandya it is. Root punches this covers. Pandya dives but cannot get a hand to it. Root will get four for it.

  • 11.6Played through mid-wicket by Morgan. The batsmen have run through for a single. 85/2
  • 11.5Defended off the front foot by Eoin presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 11.4Howzzzzaaaaattt!!! Going down leg! Leg spin on middle, Morgan misses his block and gets wrapped on his back leg. Long appeal but the umpire stays put. India opt against the review.
  • 11.3Very full and straight, driven back to the bowler.
  • 11.2On middle and leg, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 11.1Full and around off, watchfully defended.
  • 10.6Gets behind the ball and is solid in defence. 84/2

  • 9.5Morgan defends it from within the crease.
  • 9.4FOUR! Short ball outside off, Morgan transfers his weight to his back foot and flat-bats this. A misfield there and the ball has enough to reach the ropes.
  • 9.3Long appeal from the players but the umpire says NO. Slower ball around off, it spins in sharply and beats Morgan on his defence. The players go up in unison but nothing from the umpire. Perhaps an inside edge and even height an issue. Hawk Eye shows it to be clipping the top of the stumps.
  • 9.2Leg break on middle, Morgan blocks it with a straight bat.
  • Eoin Morgan strides out next to bat.
  • 9.1OUT! Chahal has struck with his very first ball, albeit in the form of a run out! What a lucky break for India - another one against the run of play. A touch short on middle, Root taps it towards short mid-wicket and calls for a quick single. Vince responds but it is a very risky run. It is Hardik Pandya whom they are challenging and the one to whom he is throwing - Mr. Dhoni. The throw is a poor one as Hardik has to run to his right and then pick up and throw. But the class of Dhoni converts it into a decent one, getting low to his right and hitting the stumps. He immediately appeals, rather signals that it is out. It is referred upstairs and boy - how many times have we seen MS wrong? The bat is not even touching the line when the bails are dislodged. 183 more needed from 245 balls.
  • A run out appeal is taken upstairs. Looks out from the naked eye.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl his first over.
  • 8.6Opens the face of the bat and gives it to third man. Another run taken. England need 183 runs in 246 balls at 4.46 rpo. 74/1
  • 8.5Outside off, guided towards backward point. Pandya there, dives over the ball which enables the batsmen to take a run.
  • 8.4Back of a length ball outside off, Vince taps this to the off side on his back foot.
  • 8.3Joe guides it to third man. They pick up a single.
  • 8.2FOUR! Another short ball and Root is well in control of it. Waits for it and directs it square of the wicket for a boundary.
  • 8.1Fuller ball outside off, Root turns his bat to the leg side.
  • 7.6Good length ball around off, Vince blocks it from his crease. 67/1
  • 7.5Back of a length ball down leg. Vince gets struck on his thigh pad.
  • 7.4FOUR! How easy are England making it look. Finding the gap on every occasion. Just flicks this ball towards the vacant deep square leg region. Boundary.
  • 7.3Root flicks it away with a wristy shot. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 7.2Eases this through mid-wicket to give his partner the strike.
  • 7.1FOUR! That's 30 runs from Bhuvi now in just his 4th over. Length ball outside off, Vince punches it through covers for another boundary.

  • 6.5Slow length ball on off, defended off the back foot.
  • 6.4The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 6.3Four Leg byes! It's all going England's way here. Length ball down leg, Root just helps it on it's way. Dhoni gets down to his left but can't stop the ball from going for a boundary.
  • 6.2FOUR! Fifty up for England. Back of a length ball outside off, Root stays back and just punches this through covers. The crowd goes 'ROOOOOOOOTT' as the ball goes to the fence.
  • 6.1Length ball outside off, Root taps it to the off side.
  • 5.6Length outside off, well defended. 49/1
  • 5.5FOUR! Tough luck for Bhuvi. Good length ball around off, it jags back a bit. Vince gets an inside edge trying to play it to the off side. No fine leg and the ball meets the fence once more.
  • 5.4Full outside off, pushes towards cover-point fort a quick single.
  • 5.3Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 5.2RUN OUT CHANCE MISSED! Oh dear... Vince nearly ran two there. He pushed this down the ground and thought he had bisected mid on and mid off. But Root was ball-watching. Vince had come more than three-fourths of the way down the track, only to realize that he had to go back. He took the chance and luckily for him, the fielder at mid off went for the stumps at the bowler's end where Root was standing merrily inside his crease. He missed those sticks any which ways and by the time the throw limped to Dhoni, Vince had got in.
  • 5.1On a length around middle, pushed back to the bowler.
  • Change of ends for Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
  • 4.6Length on leg, worked to the on side for nothing. 43/1
  • 4.5Yorker on off, Root does well to get his bat to it.
  • Joe Root walks in next to bat.
  • 4.4OUT! There it is! And India get a wicket against the run of play. The hard-hitting Jonny Bairstow has to walk back. Trying to hit one too many balls and finds the fielder. Length ball on middle and leg, it skids a bit, Bairstow flicks it but finds Raina at short mid-wicket. The Indians rejoice and are in all smiles. Bairstow falls after a good start. England are 214 runs behind.
  • 4.3Driven towards the mid on region. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 4.2Pushes this back down the ground, but finds mid on.
  • 4.1FOUR! Does not start well either! A short ball, down the leg side, Vince helps it past short fine leg for a boundary!
  • Shardul Thakur is brought into the attack.
  • 3.6FOUR! A boundary to end the over. Short ball down leg, Bairstow pulls this fine down. No fine leg and the ball reaches the fence once again. 15 runs of the over. 31 of the last 2. 38/0
  • 3.5Runs coming from every ball. Vince milks this through mid-wicket for one more.
  • 3.4Pushes this far of the cover fielder to take a single.
  • 3.3FOUR! Shot! This time through the off side. Bairstow is in some hurry. Punches this length ball through covers for back-to-back boundaries.
  • 3.2FOUR! Classic. Hardik pitches this up on leg, Bairstow flicks this in the gap through mid-wicket for four more.
  • 3.1The ball takes the outside edge goes towards deep backward point. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 2.6FOUR! That's four boundaries of the over. Bairstow is on the charge here. Length ball outside off, Jonny guides this past backward point to get 16 runs of the over. All through boundaries. 23/0
  • 2.5FOUR! Overpitches this on off, Bairstow just drives this to the right of mid off. The ball runs to the fence.
  • 2.4Better. This is the line and length he needs to bowl. Length around off, defended well.
  • 2.3FOUR! This is not a good length from Bhuvi. He is gone short again and gets the punishment again. Bangs this short on off, it sits up nicely for Jonny who pulls this over mid-wicket.
  • 2.2FOUR! Gift again from Bhuvi. Short and wide outside off, enough time for Bairstow to cut it through point. A boundary results.
  • 2.1The short of length delivery has been cut away through square on the off side.
  • 1.6Bairstow plays this towards mid-wicket to retain the strike. 7/0
  • 1.5Uppish but safe. Darts this on leg, Vince hits it back towards the bowler and hares to complete the run.
  • 1.4Another pitched up ball on that fourth stump channel, Vince hits it to covers.
  • 1.3Full again outside off, James drives this for the mid off fielder to collect.
  • 1.2Length ball on middle and leg, Vince is solid in his defense.
  • 1.1Full ball on middle, Vince hits it towards mid-wicket.
  • Hardik Pandya will bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6Good length ball around off, too close to cut as Bairstow is beaten trying to do so. 5/0
  • 0.5Angles this on his pads. Vince misses his flick and gets hit on his pads. They take the leg bye as the ball rolls down fine.
  • 0.4Length ball nips back in, Vince defends this off his back foot.
  • 0.3Back of a length ball on off, James stays back and bunts it down.
  • 0.2Better line this time, around off, Vince pushes this towards mid off.
  • 0.1FOUR. And he gifts Vince a free ball first up. Runs in and lands one short and wide outside off, Vince just eases this through covers for the first runs.
  • Out come the Indian players. Kohli has some words of wisdom before the players take their place. James Vince and Jonny Bairstow will open for the Three Lions. We saw that the English bowlers were getting some swing, we expect Bhuvneshwar Kumar to do the same as he will open the bowling. 2 slips in place for him.
