    15.1 Stokes, playing his first ODI since his starring role in the 2019 WC final, provides England with the breakthrough. Short and wide - finishes much wider than a set of stumps outside off - Rohit chases it with a cut and ends up slashing it behind to Buttler for a straightforward catch behind the stumps. It might been an off-side wide had Rohit missed it 64/1
    38.1 he's caught at midwicket. Unfortunat to fall so near his 100. Short ball and he laid into it with a crisp pull, but Morgan's at midwicket in the circle and he's grabbed it low to his right. Dhawan fall for 98, end of a fine innings. 197/4
    32.1 caught at deep square leg. Moeen makes no mistake this time. He had timed this well actually. Fuller on the stumps and Kohli came forward to use those tensile wrists to whip this away. Didn't keep it down and hit it well enough that it carried all the way. 169/2
    34.5 caught at deep cover. Length outside off, he was coming on the front foot to loft this over extra cover, the bat turns in his hand and he splices it high in the air. Deep cover runs in and covers good ground to gobble the ball up. 187/3

    40.3 Hardik guides it straight to Bairstow at slip. On a length and outside off, Pandya leans back and aims to run it away to third man. Instead, he opens the face and slices it straight to slip 205/5

    14.2 juggling catch by Suryakumar Yadav at point. They'll have a check of the replay, soft signal is out. Roy's bottom hand came off the bat as he went too early at it, trying to punch-drive through cover. Takes the outside edge and goes low to Surya, who gobbles it, sees it spill out, but manages to get hands under it and hold on. 135/1
    22.1 Bairstow falls six short of a century, holing out to deep midwicket. Hard-length delivery on off stump from Thakur. Bairstow still dares to pull it away, but does not get hold of it. He can only splice it high into the hands of Kuldeep. Prasidh, Thakur and Kuldeep have dragged England back after that rollicking opening stand 169/3
    16.2 Two wickets in two overs for Krishna on debut! He celebrates it with a big roar. Looks like a quick offcutter at 142.7ks, Stokes aims to drive on the up and ends up weakly chipping it to Gill at extra-cover. Another catch taken by a substitute fielder 137/2
    24.1 Bounced out. Think Thakur or rather Curran took Morgan down in similar fashion for CSK in IPL 2020. Shami, too, had bounced Morgan out in the 2019 WC. Dug in short and outside off, 142ks, shoulder-high delivery, climbs at Morgan and messes with his pull. Top-edged behind to Rahul 175/4
    24.4 Buttler has been given out lbw, he chooses to challenge the decision. On a length and jagging back in to thump the front pad as Buttler plays around it. Has he snicked it? No bat. Ball-tracking reckons it would have grazed leg stump, enough for umpire Menon's on-field call to be upheld. Thakur and Prasidh have tipped the match India's way 176/5
    32.1 scooped up to short cover, with Kohli making no mistake this time. Back of a length and outside off, Billings aims to drive on the up, Prasidh hits the sticker of the bat, drawing a weak little scoop to his captain. Three wickets on debut for Prasidh 217/6
    37.1 Bhuvneshwar has Moeen nicking off. Kicks up from a back of a length and wobbling away outside off, catches the outside edge near the shoulder of the bat and settles into the gloves of Rahul. Moeen is squared up. Just reward for Bhuvneshwar - his first wicket of the day 237/7
    38.1 Maiden ODI wicket for Krunal. Pushed through outside off, Sam dashes out of the crease, doesn't get close enough to the pitch, but still swings through the line. He doesn't get enough power behind it and slices it to Gill at long-off. Curran goes and with it England's slim hopes? 239/8
    42.1 Prasidh seals victory for India on debut! Full and he hides it away from the swinging arc of Curran. The batsman ends up slicing it to Bhuvneshwar at deep third man. Prasidh gets a warm hug from his Karnataka team-mate and friend Rahul. Such a sweet moment 251/10
    39.2 Bhuvneshwar now has Rashid nicking off. Fullish, threatens to come in with the angle, but straightens away to take the outside edge. Rahul does the rest. India are one away from 1-0 241/9
