Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Rohit Sharma, 3.4 ov), 2-63 (KL Rahul, 7.4 ov), 3-70 (Virat Kohli, 8.4 ov), 4-110 (Suryakumar Yadav, 13.2 ov), 5-144 (Rishabh Pant, 16.2 ov), 6-170 (Hardik Pandya, 18.5 ov), 7-174 (Shreyas Iyer, 19.1 ov), 8-179 (Washington Sundar, 19.4 ov)
8.4 to V Kohli, googly gets him. Kohli was looking to be aggressive against Rashid, danced down the track, doesn't get to the pitch and possibly didn't read the googly either, going for a big swing down the ground and the ball zips through between the gap. Easy stumping for Buttler.. 70/3
3.4 to RG Sharma, and he takes the caught and bowled this time. Slower ball does it, 125 kph. Rohit too early into the punch back down the wicket, just pops it in the air straight back to the bowler. In the last game, Archer had dropped a similar chance. He's not going to drop two dollies in back to back games. Beaming smile as he grabs it.. 21/1
16.2 to RR Pant, bowled him! Silence in the already empty stadium! Fuller, straighter, a hint of movement back into the left-hander, and Pant, feet rooted once again as he trusts his hands to get him out of trouble, can't connect and loses his middle stump in exchange! Very timely wicket for England. 144/5
19.1 to SS Iyer, on the toes, flicked out to deep midwicket, and straight to Malan on the rope! Huge ccalp early in the over. Iyer had done a fine job, but he can't finish it off. That 190 hope is fading now. 174/7
19.4 to Washington Sundar, caught at third man this time! Sundar wanted to use the pace for a ramp over the ropes, but the pace wasn't quite there that time. An open-faced steer to Rashid, right back on the rope, and that was like catching practice ... but hang on, has Rashid stepped on the rope? He's pretty far back, with his heel raised at the moment the catch is taken... could be another soft-signal situation here. It's out on the field, and not a lot of hard evidence that he's touched the boundary sponge. Yep, Sundar has to go! No movement in that frame-by-frame analysis. On we go. 179/8
18.5 to HH Pandya, what a blinder from Stokes in the covers! Pandya steps back for a slap into the off-side again, he gets better contact on this one, but the ball is almost past Stokes as he flings himself backwards to his left, and snatches in one hand! There's another check for a bump-ball as he fell to turf, but nope, safely in his fingers. A big wicket. 170/6
7.4 to KL Rahul, caught at mid-off. Gave himself room to try and extend his arms but Stokes followed him and denied him room. Rahul still went through with the shot, looking to loft over mid-off. Didn't pick the slower ball, and the bat turns in his hands as the ball loops tamely to the fielder.. 63/2
13.2 to SA Yadav, he's gone for it again, and Malan clings onto a fine low grab! Wow, that's some ticker from Curran to be fair. Backed his best ball, in spite of the treatment he got first time, and this time SKY can't get the elevation on his sweep. Malan is perhaps slightly finer, and stoops well to gather. We've got a third-umpire review ... and this might get over-turned. Malan's grab seemed to be in the heel of his hands as he fell forward, and it's feasible his fingers weren't under the ball in the final take. The on-field signal is out, so the benefit may stay with the fielder, as this is taking an age... It's out! The third umpire rules that the TV evidence is inconclusive ... and well, it's a coin-flip on that count. But what a superb (not-)debut innings it was!. 110/4

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Jos Buttler, 2.5 ov), 2-60 (Dawid Malan, 7.5 ov), 3-66 (Jason Roy, 8.5 ov), 4-131 (Jonny Bairstow, 14.5 ov), 5-140 (Ben Stokes, 16.1 ov), 6-140 (Eoin Morgan, 16.2 ov), 7-153 (Sam Curran, 17.6 ov), 8-177 (Chris Jordan, 19.5 ov)
2.5 to JC Buttler, leading edge caught at mid-off. Massive wicket. Slower ball again at 115 kph, Buttler's too early into his flick off the pads, and the ball swirls up high. Rahul getting under it, seemed to lose it momentarily but then does well to grab it.. 15/1
8.5 to JJ Roy, caught at deep midwicket. That's a Mumbai Indians dismissal, bowled Hardik Pandya, caught Suryakumar Yadav. Banged in short, this time at normal pace, and got it to rise above the shoulder. Roy went for the pull, didn't quite nail it, and SKY at the boundary takes a few steps forward and gobbles it up. Another dismissal in the 40s for Roy.. 66/3
17.6 to SM Curran, through a flat-footed wipe, and Pandya has finished it off! That wriggles through everything, bat, pad, inside-edge, down into the timbers. India are surging towards a series leveller now!. 153/7
16.1 to BA Stokes, slower ball, first ball, and Stokes has slapped it to long-off! Superb bowling from Thakur, trusting the cutter that caused him such bother in the second game, and once again, he can't get enough bat through the line. A simple catch, and the pendulum swings again!. 140/5
16.2 to EJG Morgan, two in two and India are surging now! Another outstanding offcutter, Morgan tried to go up and over, but he clothed the shot, no pace on the ball as the bat came through the line, and that's a simple waist-high take!. 140/6
19.5 to CJ Jordan, back of a length, Jordan holes out to long off! There was a huge cry of "yeah!" as that shot went up, but it was an Indian voice, as Jordan can't get enough bat through his drill over the covers, and England's challenge, wides aside, is cooked.... 177/8
7.5 to DJ Malan, googly bowls him around his legs. Malan went for the reverse sweep, wasn't in great position given the length, had to stretch for it almost. Makes no contact with the ball and his stumps are knocked out of the ground.. 60/2
14.5 to JM Bairstow, Bairstow's given it away! That's a huge moment for India to strike, outside off, a bit of a nothing cut into the off-side as YJB was caught between two or three shots. A top-edged slap to point, and that's a glimmer... can they make it a full-blown opportunity?. 131/4
