Shocks like this
England got their first blow in the first over. In the second ball, Bhuvneshwar blew Jason Roy and sent him to the pavilion without opening the account. India got their second and big success in the 13th over. It was very important to break the partnership of David Malan and Jose Butler, who had completely dominated.
Butler, who was playing 54 off Bhuvneshwar’s fifth ball, played a big shot on deep extra cover to get the ball across the boundary line, but Fielder Hardik Pandya, who was present there, made a great catch and sent him to the pavilion. India got their third success on the third ball of the 15th over. Johnny Bairstow was caught by Suryakumar at the hands of Shardul Thakur, who came for bowling, and returned to the pavilion.
On the last ball of the same over, Shardul blew up the batting of the batting batsman David Malan. Malan Shardul’s killer could not understand the ball and his middle stump collapsed. After this, Eoin Morgan, who came to bat, was hunted by Hardik Pandya. Morgan caught on Hardik’s ball and returned to the pavilion.
England won the toss and chose fielding first. India and England are tied 2–2 in the five-match series. In such a situation, this match will be very interesting. A change has been made in the Indian team. KL Rahul is excluded. While the stormy bowler T Natarajan has been entered.
