England in India T20I Series - 1st T20I

India v England

India won by 5 wickets (with 13 balls remaining)

3.1

Ashwin to Lumb, OUT, swept at, missed, strikes the pad and given out lbw it looked pretty adjacent to off stump, he was a reasonable way down with a good stride so maybe it might have gone down with the angle but with a bit of grip it probably would have hit the stumps, a fair enough decision

MJ Lumb lbw b Ashwin 1 (15m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

England 21/1   AD Hales 19* (9b 4x4)   R Ashwin 1.1-1-0-1

10.1

Yuvraj Singh to Wright, OUT, floated up and heaved down the ground, didn't get to the pitch and that will be safely pouched at long-off! Wright skipped out and tried to belabour Yuvraj over the fence, came off the toe of the bat and he knew that was going to the fielder as soon as he hit it

LJ Wright c Rahane b Yuvraj Singh 34 (29m 21b 3x4 1x6) SR: 161.90

England 89/2   AD Hales 52* (30b 7x4 2x6)   Yuvraj Singh 1.1-0-5-1

12.2

Yuvraj Singh to Hales, OUT, slides on, Hales plays slightly the wrong line and is bowled! Double strike from Yuvraj, this didn't turn much, Hales advanced for a big ole blow down the ground and effectively played around it to lose middle pole

AD Hales b Yuvraj Singh 56 (52m 35b 7x4 2x6) SR: 160.00

England 99/3   EJG Morgan 5* (8b)   Yuvraj Singh 2.2-0-10-2

12.4

Yuvraj Singh to Morgan, OUT, slogged straight up and Morgan is out too! Big wicket for India, Yuvraj gulling England's captain. It was flat, a bit quicker than Morgan expected maybe, and he sliced it high, high into the sky, the ball eventually lobbing gently to mid-on

EJG Morgan c Rahane b Yuvraj Singh 5 (9m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

England 100/4   SR Patel 1* (1b)   Yuvraj Singh 2.4-0-11-3

18.1

Dinda to Patel, OUT, no, Patel holes out straight to long-off! Dinda went for the full bunger, it was in the slot but Patel didn't middle it and sent the ball flat and straight into the welcoming arms of Rahane, a couple of yards in from the rope

SR Patel c Rahane b Dinda 24 (21m 22b 1x4 1x6) SR: 109.09

England 138/5   JC Buttler 15* (12b 1x6)   AB Dinda 2.1-0-16-1

18.4

Dinda to Bresnan, OUT, Bresnan goes first ball, picks out Kohli coming in off the boundary at long-on! He had to plunge forward to take the catch, bags it well and he celebrates in the manner we've become accustomed to, eyes bulging, fists pumping

TT Bresnan c Kohli b Dinda 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 139/6   JC Buttler 16* (14b 1x6)   AB Dinda 2.4-0-17-2
