Is Nick Compton a shoo-in for the second opener spot in the first Test? And could we see a very different England bowling attack in Ahmedabad?
Producer: Tom Kingham
- Players/Officials : Nick Compton
17.6 JT Ball to F du Plessis, out, gone this time! Full outside off, du Plessis drives without moving his feet - much like England earlier - well away from his body and the edge carries low to Buttler | May 29, 2017
15.3 JT Ball to Q de Kock, out, through him! A very full ball (by Ball) at off stump and it gets under de Kock's bat. He can't quite work out how he missed it. Seemed a little late on the shot, but it was an excellent delivery | May 29, 2017
14.6 TS Roland-Jones to HM Amla, out, dragged on! A maiden scalp for TRJ. A shorter ball outside off, Amla went for the pull and gets a bottom edge into his stumps | May 29, 2017
6.1 ST Finn to HM Amla, 4 runs, short ball, clubbed mercilessly through square leg for four, takes Amla to 7000 ODI runs, the fastest man to do so | May 29, 2017
31.1 KA Maharaj to ST Finn, out, and that's a dolly to end things...Finn flicks this lazily to midwicket, a soft finish. Drifting into the pads and he couldn't keep the ball down | May 29, 2017
The recalled Jonny Bairstow got to the crease with England 15 for 3 and made 51 off 67 balls | May 29, 2017
29.5 KA Maharaj to JT Ball, out, that's less good! Opts for the slog-sweep this time, it's a full delivery, he gets a bottom edge into his back leg which rebounds into the stumps | May 29, 2017
27.3 KA Maharaj to JM Bairstow, out, and that's all over! Charges down the pitch outside leg stump, the ball grips just enough to spin past his outside edge as he tries to drive over the off side | May 29, 2017
25.3 KA Maharaj to JM Bairstow, 4 runs, and there's his fifty, a terrific innings, reaches it with a well-placed sweep behind square | May 29, 2017
