India won by 7 wickets (with 87 balls remaining)

1.1

Mohammed Shami to Sikandar Raza, OUT, and he strikes first ball, this is not a Sibanda-level meltdown but Raza's not done much good here, it is a wide outswinger from Shami, Raza's chased it weakly, half-heartedly, and keeper's moved smoothly to his right to accept the second gift of the day
