TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.20, 103 Mins)124/7
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (KL Rahul, 1.2 ov), 2-3 (Virat Kohli, 2.3 ov), 3-20 (Shikhar Dhawan, 4.6 ov), 4-48 (Rishabh Pant, 9.6 ov), 5-102 (Hardik Pandya, 17.2 ov), 6-102 (Shardul Thakur, 17.3 ov), 7-117 (Shreyas Iyer, 19.3 ov)
2.3 to V Kohli, slapped uppishly but straight to mid-off! Kohli backs away and looks to muscle over the ring, picks out Chris Jordan! He's gone without scoring, and India are on special offer here - 3 for 2. Rashid gallops off in celebration, England making the perfect start. 3/2
1.2 to KL Rahul, dragged on! Pitched up in the channel, 141kph and Rahul prods tamely, diverts the ball into his pegs! Immediate success for Archer, and India are one down early doors. Full and he felt for it, only to get a thick inside edge into middle stump. 2/1
17.2 to HH Pandya, Archer strikes again, plucked down by the turf by Jordan at mid-off! Hardik had bided his time, ready to tee off at the death, but this was a mishit looking to go over the off-side ring... almost didn't carry, but Jordan got both mitts underneath the ball. 102/5
17.3 to SN Thakur, bumper, hooked to deep square! Golden duck for Shardulkar! He connected pretty well, but Archer was bowling to his field and the ball flew straight into the bread basket of Dawid Malan coming in off the rope. 102/6
4.6 to S Dhawan, timbeeeeeerrrrrrrrr! Wood hits the sticks and India are three down! Fast, 148kph, and flashing through on a length to tickle the leg bail as Dhawan aims an ugly hoick across the line... Wood strikes in his opening over, and India are coming and going with indecent haste. 20/3
19.3 to SS Iyer, short with pace off, Iyer whacks it leg side... taken at deep backward square! Brilliant catch on the run from Malan, and Iyer departs in the final over after a fighting lone hand! Hand to wait an age and then try to manufacture the power himself. Career-best in T20Is for India's No.4, repaying some of the faith shown - but England are closing this innings out well. 117/7
9.6 to RR Pant, picked up...and whipped into the lap of YJB at deep square leg. Pitched up and veering into the pads, it was in the slot, but Pant can't clear the bigger boundary. India slip further to 48 for 4. England's change bowlers are piling up the pressure on the hosts. 48/4

Fall of wickets: 1-72 (Jos Buttler, 7.6 ov), 2-89 (Jason Roy, 11.1 ov)
7.6 to JC Buttler, trapped in front, and Buttler walks! Plays the wrong line, straightening on middle and leg, and up goes the finger. Some relief for India, Chahal doing Buttler in the flight there, looking to defend but it drifted in past the inside edge. 72/1
11.1 to JJ Roy, pushed through straight, beats Roy's flick to leg - and given! Roy crinkles up his nose and reviews after a brief chat with his partner. Was he outside the line? If not, he looks a bit stuck here. Nitin Menon hasn't got much wrong on this tour, and umpire's call is the verdict from ball-tracking! Just in line, and going on to smash middle. So no half-century for Roy, though he's done a good job as far as England are concerned. 89/2
