Kieron Pollard won the toss and elected to field first, India managed to overturn their early slump and finished with a decent total of 287/8 at the end of 50 overs at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai on Sunday. India got off to a slow start, owing to Sheldon Cottrell’s bowling who bagged the wickets of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli early on. Rohit Sharma was next on 36, but the hosts’ fortunes changed as Shreyas Iyer (70) and Rishabh Pant (71) saved the innings with their brilliant 114-run partnership. Kedar Jadhav’s 40 and Ravindra Jadeja’s 21 helped India reach the decent total. On the other hand, Alzarri Joseph, Keemo Paul and Sheldon Cottrell managed to scalp two wickets each. Chasing 288, Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer have kept the visitors in a commanding position.
