Bhuvneshwar Kumar402817.00103010
0.3 to JC Buttler, wicket to wicket and pinned lbw! Buttler shuffles across his stumps, trying to work to the leg side, but that skidded from just back of a good length, into the knee-roll, and he knows there's no recourse there! That was smashing leg stump, and well, that's the start India needed!. 1/1
Washington Sundar402927.25112200
11.1 to JJ Roy, caught at deep square leg. Well caught by Bhuvneshwar. Roy was looking to go over cow corner, to a full ball on leg stump, didn't get properly underneath it, and the ball goes squarer than he intended off the bottom part of the bat. Swirls high in the air and Bhuvneshwar moves to his left and then lunges further in that direction to hold on.. 91/3
13.5 to JM Bairstow, caught by Suryakumar at deep square leg. He juggled it, but held on. Bairstow is going for everything, and this one was slowed down and bowled wider outside off, got the toe-end of the bat from his slog sweep. Goes high in the air and Surya runs in from the boundary and catches it. Almost spills it but then holds on and he's overjoyed.. 119/4
Shardul Thakur402927.25104010
17.1 to EJG Morgan, slower ball gets him. Superbly disguised. Morgan was giving himself room and looking to go over extra cover, this was the off-cutter and bowled very wide outside off, Morgan ends up toe-ending it straight up and Pant takes an easy catch.. 142/5
19.4 to BA Stokes, caught at long-on. Stokes has not got his timing right at any point in this innings and another pace variation has him mistiming a pull that plops up for an easy catch to Hardik at long-on. 160/6
Hardik Pandya403308.2542010
Yuzvendra Chahal403418.5094120
8.2 to DJ Malan, another sweep, a cackle of glee from Pant, which rather confirms that, yes, this time India will review! Did this pitch outside leg? The other actually looked closer, but both are incredibly tight... it's pitched on leg, and it's hitting! Malan had no answer to either of those deliveries, and his half-formed innings is over!. 64/2

Sam Curran412215.5082000
0.6 to KL Rahul, edged and gone! Curran pushes the final ball of his opening over straight across Rahul's bows, no swing this time, and that's a thin but palpable snick through to the keeper! A wicket maiden to launch England's defence, and now we've got a battle. 0/1
Jofra Archer402406.00113010
Chris Jordan2.5038113.4134200
13.4 to RR Pant, caught at deep midwicket. Closed the face too early in trying to flick this full ball off his pads, and the leading edge loops up for a simple catch. Ironically, it's a shot where he was not looking to blast the ball that has got him out.. 130/3
Tom Curran2026013.0022200
Ben Stokes1017017.0010201
Adil Rashid403819.5071300
9.6 to Ishan Kishan, gets in a tangle on the reverse hoick, and given lbw! Kishan is keen to review, but that was out of the front of the hand again, and it just skidded through, under his intentions. Clipping off stump? If so, he's gone... indeed it is! England have their breakthrough. 94/2
