Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Babar Azam, 1.1 ov), 2-15 (Mohammad Rizwan, 3.6 ov), 3-91 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 12.2 ov), 4-96 (Shadab Khan, 13.2 ov), 5-98 (Haider Ali, 13.6 ov), 6-115 (Mohammad Nawaz, 15.5 ov), 7-120 (Asif Ali, 16.4 ov), 8-151 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 19.2 ov)
19.2 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, Eight down. Shortish on leg stump, and the ball seems to hold up on the pitch. Afridi swings through a pull, plays too early, and ends up popping the ball back to the bowler off his glove. 151/8
1.1 to Babar Azam, full, straight, pinned lbw first ball! Erasmus raises the finger but Babar will review. This looked stone dead live. Full, swinging into the pads. Babar was looking to work it away with a roll of the wrists but it skidded into his shin. Was it doing too much to clip leg stump? Ultra-Edge confirms no bat involved. Pitched in line, impact in line, hitting leg stump three-quarters of the way up! Babar trudges off.. 1/1
3.6 to Mohammad Rizwan, bounced out, top-edged down Bhuvi's throat! India are all over Pakistan, whose prolific openers have managed four runs off 13 balls between them. Arshdeep drops short, Rizwan takes on the hook shot but is rushed for pace by the extra bounce. Fine leg is set deep on the rope, and completes a straightforward catch. Arshdeep has another!. 15/2
16.4 to Asif Ali, wow. Superb delivery to bag his third. Not the greatest look for Asif against the short ball. 137kph. Looks to duck, it doesn't get up as much as he expects, and he ends up having to get his bat up to protect his face, and ends up gloving the ball behind to DK. 120/7
12.2 to Iftikhar Ahmed, another lbw appeal, and Shami has removed the dangerman! Superb bowling, full, with late tail into the right-hander. Again, Iftikhar looks to punch down the ground without getting forward, just clears his front leg and throws a straight bat at the ball, and this time the ball sneaks past his inside edge to thud into his back leg, plumb in front. 91/3
13.2 to Shadab Khan, hits a hard length, angling in towards off stump, and Shadab looks to take it on. Clears his front leg to slog over the on side, but it's a hard thing to do against this sort of length. Goes with a diagonal bat, slices it a little, and only succeeds in launching it straight to long-on. 96/4
13.6 to Haider Ali, and again, the hard length proves extremely difficult to go after. Angling into middle and leg, so there's very little room to work with either. Clears his front leg, goes hard with that diagonal bat, and hits it straight down the throat of deep midwicket. 98/5
15.5 to Mohammad Nawaz, gone, Hardik gets his third. Knows Nawaz is looking to create room, and bowls a short-of-length ball at his body. Actually straightens into him even as he backs away, and bounces a little extra. Tries to run it down past short third, who has just moved into the circle, and the extra bounce ensures he only manages to glove it to the keeper. 115/6

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (KL Rahul, 1.5 ov), 2-10 (Rohit Sharma, 3.2 ov), 3-26 (Suryakumar Yadav, 5.3 ov), 4-31 (Axar Patel, 6.1 ov), 5-144 (Hardik Pandya, 19.1 ov), 6-158 (Dinesh Karthik, 19.5 ov)
1.5 to KL Rahul, dragged on, Naseem strikes! Just short of a good length, Rahul was looking to steer it away with soft hands and an open face. But he could only manage to inside-edge into his back pad, and then onto the stumps. 88mph/142kph. Naseem roars in celebration and hugs Shadab. Pakistan have their early breakthrough. 7/1
3.2 to RG Sharma, nicked off, Iftikhar takes a blinder at slip! 90mph/145kph, too quick for Rohit! Just a fraction full of a good length, and Rohit's feet were footed to the crease. He poked tentatively, playing away from his body, and a thickish edge flew quickly to Iftikhar. Kettleborough, the TV umpire, wants to check the catch, but it's definitely a fair one. He dived low, flinging himself to his right, and took it cleanly. 10/2
5.3 to SA Yadav, Rauf strikes, Pakistan have three early! Rauf roars in celebration! Back of a length, hostile line, and cramps SKY for room as he looks for his release shot, attempting to steer down to third with an open face. Instead, he can only feather through to Rizwan, who throws the ball up in the air. Rauf is down on his knees, punching the air before Shadab embarces him. Nipped in off the seam and took a glove on its way through. 26/3
19.1 to HH Pandya, got him, what a strike for Pakistan! Flat, speared into the pads, and Hardik loses his shape completely as he tries to slog this over the leg side. Edges it, and the ball balloons to the fielder at cover point. 144/5
19.5 to KD Karthik, got him, a stumping off the pads!!! Goes flat, angling down leg, following DK's movement to make room. Looks to sweep, and the ball dribbles off the pad behind the wicket. And Rizwan is alert to the fact that DK has stumbled out of his crease. What a moment. Rizwan is well down the leg side when he collects the ball, and he falls to his right to complete the stumping. 158/6
