Sent out to bat, Rohit Sharma (64) and Virat Kohli (80*) provided a good start to their innings inside the powerplay. Suryakumar Yadav (32) and Hardik Pandya (39*) pitched in too with vital runs to guide India to a challenging total of 224/2. Chasing, England suffered an early setback with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/15) scalping the wicket of Jason Roy. Dawid Malan (68) and Jos Buttler (52) rallied on and kept the visitors in the mix, but a late show by Kohli’s bowlers restricted Eoin Morgan’s team to 188/8 at the end of 20 overs.
