Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Prabhsimran Singh, 1.6 ov), 2-29 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 3.4 ov), 3-53 (Liam Livingstone, 5.3 ov), 4-106 (Jitesh Sharma, 12.3 ov), 5-119 (Shikhar Dhawan, 14.4 ov), 6-139 (Rishi Dhawan, 16.5 ov), 7-139 (Sam Curran, 17.2 ov) • DRS
1.6 to Prabhsimran Singh, circus catch behind the stumps! Prabhsimran charges a length ball on middle and tries to swat this over the leg side but it climbs on him a touch and he gets a thin top edge. The ball redirects high to the right of Gurbaz behind the stumps. He reaches up to his right above head height and parries it in the air initially before shuffling a few more steps backward to his right to lunge and collect it on the second attempt before the ball can hit the turf.. 21/1
3.4 to PBB Rajapaksa, fullish length ball angled across sixth stump at 145 kph, goes to drive and a thin edge is held comfortable at chest height by Gurbaz shuffling to his left to send the home fans into a frenzy.. 29/2
5.3 to LS Livingstone, Chakaravarthy sends down a leg break that fools Livingstone on a good length expecting a googly misreading this out of the hand and defends down the wrong line. Ball strikes him on the pads in front of off stump, huge lbw shout upheld. Livingstone reviews this. Main doubt was height. But he was clearly struck in line with the stumps. Glitch on ball-tracking. It shows the ball hitting him in line but the projection stops and the drama builds.... Finally the projection is showing the ball clipping the bails on umpire's call. The decision stays out.. 53/3
12.3 to JM Sharma, good length ball on sixth stump, Jitesh tries to run this with an open face through third man but gets a very thin edge held onto by Gurbaz behind the stumps.. 106/4
16.5 to R Dhawan, bullseye! Fullish length on fourth stump and continues on with the angle, Rishi goes for a slog for midwicket and misses everything as off stump is knocked back halfway up.. 139/6
17.2 to SM Curran, fuller and wider on sixth stump, Curran goes to slog sweep this and top edges this swirling over midwicket in the ring. Gurbaz runs out from behind the stumps and calls off Suyash before taking this tumbling forward. There was no fielder in the ring on the leg side so one of the two had to go for it.. 139/7
14.4 to S Dhawan, fullish length ball on middle, Shikhar charges and miscues a heave down the ground coming off the bat nearer the toe and a chance floats gently to long-on where a chest height catch is taken by Vaibhav Arora 10 yards inside the rope.. 119/5

4.4 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, full and straight again with back of the hand slower ball landing on middle beating a flick from Gurbaz, huge lbw shout this time is upheld as Ellis chases after the ball in short cover attempting to deny a leg bye just in case. Gurbaz reviews this but it looks stone dead and he already starts wandering off before the replays are done. Three reds light up on ball-tracking. Review lost.. 38/1
7.2 to JJ Roy, full on leg stump, sweeps this but doesn't control the shot and it floats toward deep midwicket where Shahrukh Khan comes in eight yards off the rope to take a simple chest height catch. Brar raises his finger aloft in celebration.. 64/2
13.4 to VR Iyer, googly lands on a fullish length on middle and spins away from Iyer's charge down the track. He shovels this in the air off the toe and a chance floats to long-off where Livingstone holds onto a basic chance eight yards in from the rope.. 115/3
15.2 to N Rana, good length ball outside leg stump, Rana hops around to reverse swat this high and deep over wide cover. He gets under this far more than intended and it hangs in the air long enough for Livingstone to cover 30 yards running across to his right from long-off and take a superb sliding catch on his knees going feet first to latch on in the breadbasket at thigh height.. 124/4
