Harwood to Bilakhia, OUT, And he strikes first ball! Two slips in place and Harwood pitches it short of a length, the one that comes in with the angle. Bilakhia goes for the pull but gets nowhere, more of an instinctive shot. Ball clips the top edge and balloons up towards mid-on where Trivedi makes no mistake. It's a dream start
