Adil Rashid403117.7580300
13.2 to SA Yadav, It needed something special to stop Suryakumar, and it is Jordan who conjures it up. The soft signal is out - and it will stay out. CJ sprints to his right from long-on, plucks the ball out of thin air with his right hand. But then again realises that the momentum will propel him beyond the boundary. He has the presence of mind to toss it back to deep midwicket running to his left before going out of play. Good awareness from Roy as well although he can't quite believe what has happened. Belting tag-team work in the outfield. CJ: one of the best fielders in the world. 143/2

Ben Stokes302618.6661200
8.6 to RG Sharma, Some respite for England as Rohit drags a 117ks legcutter back onto his stumps. Cutter into the pitch, Stokes takes pace off it. Rohit is too early into a pull and ends up diverting it back onto the stumps. 94/1

Bhuvneshwar Kumar401523.75171040
0.2 to JJ Roy, stumps clattered. England had to go hard at the start and Roy's not connected with this. Down the track to swat it over midwicket, but Bhuvneshwar has kept it on a length, swinging in from outside off. Too close to Roy for that shot, he can't connect. The ball crashes into the stumps.. 0/1
12.5 to JC Buttler, Bhuvneshwar comes back and takes down Buttler! He does find a way past this pair, having Buttler holing out to Pandya at long-off. Hard-length delivery outside off, Buttler gets underneath the length but lifts it straight to the outfielder. Kohli exchanges a few words with the departing Buttler. 130/2
Hardik Pandya403418.5093140
15.3 to EJG Morgan, Pandya bangs a short ball outside off, Morgan doesn't particularly like this length. He is cramped on the pull and ends up splicing a catch to Rahul at long-on. 142/5
Washington Sundar1013013.0002000
Shardul Thakur4045311.25103400
14.3 to JM Bairstow, Thakur returns and has YJB holing out to sweeper cover. Another slower delivery, very full and wide outside off, Thakur asks the batsman to reach out to connect. YJB doesn't connect well enough, carving it to Suryakumar. 140/3
14.6 to DJ Malan, Thakur - you beauty! He castles Malan with a 122.2ks knuckle ball. The middle stump is floored. Malan backs away, probably aiming to pump it down the ground but Thakur bests him with his variation. Another game-changing double-strike from Thakur. 142/4
19.3 to CJ Jordan, Thakur helps himself to another wicket. Suryakumar helps himself to another catch. Knuckle ball on middle stump, swatted high to deep midwicket. 174/8
T Natarajan403919.7575100
18.3 to BA Stokes, edged and taken by Pant. Welcome back, Natarajan. Stokes steps away outside leg once again. Natarajan spears it full and wide - away from his reach. Stokes throws his his hands at a drive and snicks it behind. 165/6
