India 192/3

RR: 10.11 | India beat England by 7 wickets

commentary

That's it from this warm-up match! The next set of warm-up games will be played on 20th October. At 2 pm local (10 am GMT), India will be in action against Australia and England will be entertaining New Zealand whereas at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT), Afghanistan will face West Indies and Pakistan will meet South Africa. Do join us then. Cheers!

The bowling from India though was good only in patches. In fact, both teams struggled with the ball. Barring Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah, all the Indian bowlers proved to be expensive. For England, David Willey and Liam Livingstone were decent but the rest struggled. Dew also played its part late in the evening and this will be another challenge in the coming games.

At the halfway stage, India needed another 97 runs and had they lost a few wickets there, this game could have slipped away. Ishan Kishan's stunning attack on Adil Rashid in the 12th over eased down the equation for India and from there on, they kept on finding the boundaries to always stay close to the required rate. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya staying in the middle and closing the chase would please India even more.

A dominating batting show by India to pocket this warm-up game! It got a bit close towards the end but it was always their game to lose. The Men in Blue got most of the boxes ticked, if not all, in their batting department. KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan displayed great form in the recently concluded Indian T20 League and showed that they are not done yet. Their opening partnership almost did half the job and Ishan extended his stay after that to carry on with his onslaught.

18.5
2
Chris Jordan to Hardik Pandya, A full toss, around off, flicked to the left of mid-wicket, who dives that side and partially stops the ball. Two taken this time. 5 more needed!

'SLOW DAAL RAHA HAI NA?' is what Hardik asks Pant, which means that he is asking if Willey is bowling slow. Looks like Pant replies in the affirmative.

David Willey to Hardik Pandya, Slower and shorter on the body, Pandya looks to pull but he gets an under-edge to Buttler, on the bounce.

Hardik Pandya is in next.

17.3

David Willey to Suryakumar Yadav, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! SKY's short stay has come to an end. He was looking to be cheeky but it proves to be his undoing. Willey bangs this one short, slightly slower though, on middle, Suryakumar Yadav makes room, by moving to the leg side and he looks to ramp it over the keeper. He only manages a thin edge, which goes to Jos Buttler, who ensures to pouch this. 21 more needed in 15 balls now!

Chris Jordan to Ishan Kishan, DROPPED! Liam Livingstone drops this chance and also hurts himself in the process. On a length, around middle, Ishan Kishan uses his wrists and whips this towards deep mid-wicket. He does not get the distance on this and Liam Livingstone runs to his left but drops an easy catch. The batters take one and it looks like Liam has injured himself in the process. He walks off and Sam Billings comes out to replace him out on the field.

Liam Livingstone is leaving the ground. Let's hope it's not a fracture. Also, Ishan Kishan is done with his warm-up, enough of practice and he is making way for Suryakumar Yadav.

Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli, Flatter and a touch shorter around leg, Kohli moves back and tucks it through mid-wicket. Straightaway the call is for two from the Indian skipper and they complete it with ease.

Drinks break! India have started off this run chase in a fine manner as their openers raised an 82-run stand and laid the platform. Now, from the last 10 overs, they need 97 more and if they can continue with the same tempo, then they should pouch this game. England would be hoping to snare more wickets and quickly too as they look to apply the brakes to India's charge. Liam Livingstone to bowl after the break.

Mark Wood to Virat Kohli, Angling in from a length around off, Virat taps it down to point. Kishan wants a run but is sent back in time as the point fielder scores a direct hit at the bowler's end.

Update - A word regarding the other two games going on at the moment. In match number 4 between Sri Lanka and Namibia, the former are cruising as they are 50/3 in 8 overs and just need 47 more in 12 overs. Barring any surprise, this should be a win for the Islanders. In the other warm-up match between Australia and New Zealand, the Kangaroos are at 80/3 at the end of the 10th over and need 79 more in 60 deliveries. It could be a close finish in this clash.
