FOUR RUNS – SHREYAS DRIVES THIS!
Shreyas Iyer is off the mark. Four runs to start his innings. A fuller delivery on the stumps and Shreyas opens the face of the bat. Fernando gets a hand on it but such is the timing on this that the ball still runs away to the straight boundary, beating the chasing mid-off and mid-on
Live Score; IND: 18/1 (1.5)
WICKET – Rohit Sharma Departs!
Rohit Sharma has to go. He has played this one into his stumps. It was a length ball outside off, Rohit was looking to dab it down towards third man but it’s too close to him. Off the inner half of the bat and bounces on to the stumps.
Live Score; IND: 9/1 (0.6)
