India Won By Run 36 Run Details Last Wicket Bumrah to Zampa, out Caught by Rahul! It’s all over, as the short ball gets big on Zampa, and he meekly top-edges it off the blade towards Rahul to hand him a simple catch LIVE-SCORE
KL Rahul- Man of the Match (80 off 52) I couldn’t have asked for a better start. Each day I’ve been thrown different roles and responsibilities and I’m enjoying it for now. Batting at 5, I wanted to give myself a few balls, you know what the wicket is doing and Virat said that it’s coming on nicely. A few came off the middle, and I was confident I could score, and everything else faded away. Glad I got some partnerships going and played my role to the best of my abilities. Kuldeep told me my ‘keeping was good too. I grew up ‘keeping but I didn’t do it a lot for my first-class team, but in the last few weeks I did keep for Karnataka, so I’ve been in decent wicketkeeping touch, so hopefully I can keep my spinners and fast bowlers happy.
Virat Kohli: We live in the days of social media and the panic button was pressed too early. It’s important to not leave someone like KL out. You saw how he batted today. This is probably the best he’s played at the international level. The knock showed maturity and class, and we know exactly what we’re doing in the dressing room.
An important couple of games for Shikhar. He was injured for a long time and in ODIs he’s been one of our most consistent and aggressive performers, and he can change the situation for the team. It augurs well when the two openers are so good together. Rohit’s left shoulder has popped out of few times, and he should be good to go in the next game. I asked the bowlers what they wanted to do and they said this was the time to execute the yorkers. All three of them were really good with the yorkers, particularly Shami who changed everything in that over. KL is becoming a multi-dimensional player, and it’s really great when players step up like this SCORECARD
Aaron Finch: I didn’t expect it to be cold. I didn’t think I’d need the long-sleeved sweater. I think we were one wicket shy of where we needed to be throughout the bowling innings, but they’re world-class. Zampa’s length has been fantastic so far. The way Smithy started today, and nearly got through to the end, but not quite. Marnus and Smith, the only time they’re apart are when they’re asleep. I think on these tracks, it’s important to capitalize when the batsman gets in. We were always just one more wicket down than what we’d have liked at any stage of the chase and that’s when the required rate started getting out of reach.
Kuldeep: It’s been tough four-five months after World Cup, but now I’m getting back in rhythm and bowling really well. Bowled six overs initially, they were batting well both Marnus and Smith. When I came back for the last spell, I was looking for wickets. Found that wicket was slow. Later on, the ball gets softer too. So it’s difficult to hit if I bowl slower. Think I’m bowling at the perfect pace and in good areas.

It all started with Manish Pandey’s one-handed stunner to get rid of Warner – India’s first wicket over two innings in this series.
