Jason Roy, who was coming back after missing three matches due to a hamstring tear, showed what England was missing in their last few matches.

England was brilliant.

Roy made sure that he made India pay a hefty prize for their misjudgement. Bairstow and Roy timed the ball with perfection as they catapulted their attack on the Indian spinners and Hardik Pandya.

Both the right-hander made good use of the feet to get to the pitch of the ball and deposit the same in the stands. England openers added a fine alliance of 160 runs in 22 overs to lay down a solid foundation.

India needed something to break the partnership and it was produced by their twelfth man, Ravindra Jadeja. Roy smashed Kuldeep Yadav straight down the ground but the gun-fielder was quick to make ground and took a blinder.

Mohammed Shami was the pick of the Indian bowlers as the fast bowler scalped five wickets and continued to be amongst the wickets.
