Jos Buttler won the toss on the 2nd consecutive day and this time he elected to bat first.
India made 4 changes to their playing XI as they rested Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya. No Hardik Pandya also meant that India went in with just 5 bowling options.
That cost India while bowling as apart from Harshal Patel and Ravi Bishnoi all the other bowlers went for runs all around the ground with David Malan and Liam Livingstone, in particular, taking a liking for Umran Malik who went for 56 runs in his spell.
India In A Spot Of Bother With 3 Down Inside The Powerplay
India did not start the chase well as Reece Topley who came back into the side accounted for Rishabh Pant’s wicket in his first over itself.
Virat Kohli was to the crease earlier than expected. He looked in great touch as this time around, he hit his Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate, David Willey for a four and a six but after hitting a six down the ground, he tried to dance down the pitch and play a lofted cover drive.
But he was caught brilliantly by Jason Roy who was fielding at short extra cover. Kohli made just 11 off 6 and his recent run of poor form extended to another game.
