Earlier, England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to field. There was good bounce in the pitch, but the pace was slow. Ball wasn’t coming on to the bat easily, making shot-making difficult. However, openers Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan did well to negotiate the early period of play, putting on 83 runs for the first-wicket partnership.

However, with the fall of the first wicket began the batting collapse. Within 90 runs, India was down to its No 10 and No 11 batsmen – Mohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami. Even as the bowling was nothing exceptional, poor shot-making and the slow nature of the wicket made matters worse for the Indians. The batsmen failed to get accustomed to the slow-natured pace of the wicket.
Brief scores: India 200 in 50 overs (Ajinkya Rahane 73, Shikhar Dhawan 38, Steven Finn 3 for 36) vs England.
