Once SKY fell to 19th, 21 in the final over the tailenders was always going to be a tough one. India finish with 198/9 but congratulations to Suryakumar who gave India a fighting chance. He kept losing partners on the other end, but that didn’t slow him down. India’s second best effort was Shreyas Iyer’s 28 and that speaks volumes for the quality of the runs SKY put out today regardless of the outcome of the game. A round for the ages – kept India in the hunt until their last ball. England won the match deservedly after posting that mammoth 215/7.
20-run penultimate but SKY falls
Wd 4 6 Wd 4 0 W 4 – SKY kept India in the chase until he was there. 21 more needed at the end of the final. Can India pull through? They lost Surya on Moeen’s fifth ball there as he mishit the long range spinner. I can’t blame him – the demand for the situation was such. Top hit that – he leaves to a standing ovation from the crowd and his teammates.
Karthik, Jadeja Falls
England review Karthik’s appeal and get the wicket, while Jadeja reviews her LBW appeal and is disappointed. Two wickets in quick succession tying India. SKY may run out of partners at this rate. But, as long as he has the strike, India has a chance.
SKY becomes India’s fifth batter with a century in T20I. What a class move, and at one time India needed it most. A real one-shot gem that kept India in the hunt.
Livingstone eventually conceded 21 in the 13th, with Suryakumar smashing two sixes and Shreyas also getting a maximum. Livingstone goes over the line as well, with the free-kick resulting in a six. Suryakumar also gets a six and a four against Gleeson in the 15th, the fourth pair of wickets lifting a century with 55 deliveries. India is 132/3, needing 84 more from 36.
Fifty for Suryakumar
He played some bold shots and some smart shots too as Suryakumar brought in a fifty-32 on the 12th. But the requested rate reached 15 as India switches to 96/3, still needs 120 out of 48 deliveries.
The fifty-race partnership stemmed from just 29 deliveries. Shreyas springs into action with a deep midwicket six over Moeen in the 10th. India are 82/3 at the halfway mark, just four short of what England had managed for the same number of wickets.
Suryakumar in motion
After going 8 from 12, Suryakumar runs to 40 from 25 – helped by a four and a six over Willey, followed by a four over Jordan and then three fours over Livingstone. he whipped, drove, flicked and cut, using his wrists perfectly. India is 71/3 after 9 overs.
Two limits above Topely, who comes back with a slower limit to deceive the Indian captain. Rohit shoots compulsively and offers an easy hold for the deep midwicket defender. India in big trouble.
And now Kohli is leaving
For those two balls – a four and a six from Willey – it seemed like all was well in Virat Kohli’s universe. That straight-in-the-sight six had it all – the timing, the class, the intent. But then he hits the next whole straight into the hands waiting for an extra short cover. Has he become greedy? Maybe. But this hunt requires the gung-ho approach.
The pants fall early
Taken behind. But Pant was sure he hadn’t hacked it. He gets into a long discussion with Rohit on the other end of the line and runs out of time to ask for an opinion. It worked out well for India, as UltraEdge confirms a spike – India would have lost not only a wicket, but also a crit.
Back for the hunt
Innings break: England 215/7
India must complete the highest chase in the T20I to win the series 3-0. Penalty day for bowlers, but you probably expect that in a pitch with tiny boundaries. But England have Malan and Livigstone to thank for keeping that momentum going throughout the intervening games where England picked up a hundred points. Malan made a beautiful 77 and Livingstone played a perfect second fiddle with an undefeated 42 on 29. Short, punchy cameos at the top from Buttler and at the end from Brook and Jordan. Back in 15 for the pursuit of India. Don’t go anywhere!
Bishnoi eliminates the dangerous Malan and Moeen
Googly does the trick for Bishnoi. Malan wants to sweep but gets the top edge and the ball goes straight up in the air. The simplest of sockets for Pant behind the stumps. Malan opts for 77 but after taking full advantage of his youth. Another wide ball later, Moeen swings across the line and edges it straight to back up the first ball.
150 comes for England, in the 15th most
Malan reaches his half-century with his 30 balls. He feasted on gifts from Indian spinners.
Harshal gets salt
A slower ball does the trick – that’s what you expect from Harshal Patel. Yorker length, almost a low throw but dives hard. Salt was looking to go to the leg side, but the ball slips under the wild swing of his bat and makes a mess on the furniture.
Umran hits with the first ball of his second and gets the big hit Roy. Length delivery back, Roy wants to cut. Edges to pant behind stumps. Great return from Umrran that!
The butler leaves
Cut !A slower one from Umesh, just outside. Buttler went for a ride and landed his shot too soon. Gets a thick inner rim and slides it over her stumps. Roy, on the other hand, hits one directly above Jadeja’s head-first ball and into the aiming screen.
Buttler finds his rhythm
A few rapids from Umran, at 142 clicks, and the England skipper fires the former over deep mid-ropes and drives the latter through extra cover to make it a 16-point opener over the young Indian leader. Roy, meanwhile, finishes first on Bishnoi with a deep midwicket six to himself.
Everything is ready then. A brand new bowling attack from India. Roy to face, Buttler in the non-attackers and Avesh has the new ball.
Live action in less than 10 minutes. And, while we wait, here’s Kaushik Rangagrajan on India’s refreshing new approach to batting.
Very interesting selection. A big test for India’s young bowlers on one of the most successful grounds in the world. And with only 5 bowling options, there’s no hiding place. Looking forward to seeing Umran, Avesh and Bishnoi.
