  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar4-0-45-0
  • Umesh Yadav4-0-21-2

7:30pm Well, there's Nagraj's lesson in body language predictions. It is, in fact, Rohit Sharma who will open with Shikhar Dhawan. Slip in place for Willey.

WATCH (India only): It could have been a lot worse for England, were it not for Jos Buttler's brutal innings

AlistairDiamond: "I believe that the England management's stated policy, "Joe Root always plays instead of someone more suitable, even if that means we lose where otherwise we might have won", needs to be reviewed." --- Root averages 38 at a S/R of nearly 130 though.

Eric: "a top 4 compromising of KL, shikhar, virat and rohit. my heart goes out to all the bowlers that have to bowl to these guys together. hope they are indias top 4 at the WC next year."

Sangam: "All praises for Kuldeep. How about Umesh Yadav with an economy under 6 and wickets of Roy and Jordan."

Nimesh: ""gives him an earful as he protests" Who? Bhuvi?! Can't believe!"

Anil: "Looks like this series will be fought in the earnest spirit. Else rarely do we see Bhuvi giving mouthful. "

Vinay: "India give 44 runs in first 4 overs and 42 in the final 4. 12 overs in the middle went for 73.. Speaks a lot about the control exerted by the wrist spinners.."


WATCH (India only): The last of the wickets, as Buttler holes out to Kohli and Umesh gets Jordan first ball

WATCH (India only): England fans, be glad you can't see this... Kuldeep's three in four balls

7:12pm Tame. Tame end. England have under-delivered by about 30 runs. More accurately, Kuldeep Yadav has forced them into doing that. A five-wicket haul for him, brought about with complete control of flight and the variation. England barely tried against him - pretty much everyone out trying to go across the line against balls turning away from them. A great start squandered and not even Jos Buttler could take them deep today. Umesh Yadav with the supporting act. A very chase-able total on a friendly pitch. Nagraj says KL Rahul and Dhawan ran off to pad up, so we have some indication who will lead India's charge of this chase.

Kumar to Willey, 2 runs, length ball wide outside off, can't reach it to connect off the middle. Ends up slicing it to deep point's left and comes back for the second

fire from Bhuvneshwar. Spots Willey moving, stops in his stride and then gives him an earful as he protests.

Kumar to Willey, 1 wide, and another. Walks down the pitch at a wide yorker and can't chop it behind point. No one in India thinks that was wide. It was well past the marker through

Yadav to Jordan, OUT, easy take for the bowler. He's bowled a juicy full toss and Jordan has managed to get a big inside edge onto front pad that lobs up harmlessly for Umesh. A wicket handed much like the rest of the innings was handed - delicately.

Kuldeep Yadav to Willey, SIX runs, ufffff that's huge. Willey in the mood. Length ball spinning away but he's used his reach to nail this slog sweep
17.4
W
Kuldeep Yadav to Buttler, OUT, that's his first five-for! Kuldeep had only just managed his best figures, against Ireland last week. But through sensational use of the wrong'un and flight, he had ripped right through England today. Buttler looks to long and straight once more and is beaten in flight again by a googly. This time it's for long-on to take. Kohli does it.

Kuldeep Yadav to Buttler, 2 runs, dropped. KL Rahul goes for one that isn't his. Runs back from extra cover as Buttler fluffs a slog against the googly. Dhawan, running in from long-off, doesn't go for it. Kuldeep could have had his fifth. He's furious.

George Macphers: "England are failing to go big with 6's. 2 maximums aren't enough. At least Buttler is still there. I hope Willey can smack a few including a maximum or 2. Cant see England getting past 160 unless if these two unleash a barrage of 4's and 6's."

Kumar to Willey, FOUR runs, nicely done. Makes room early. It's another slower ball at a length on the stumps, but this time he has the room to slap it wide of mid-off
