Think that is it.

Root gone now and only 30 ahead.

Is Axel that good or just lucky with the pitch ?
His slingy action means that the ball is rarely going over the top of the stumps and with a pitch where the same ball can either grip and turn square or slide straight on he is very difficult to play. Root bowled similarly,

Good job we have that extra batter - need them to get a big score or it’s very much advantage India.

What's happened to Bumrah. He's India's best fast bowler?

Terribly unlucky for Pope, but he could have been run out too.

Missing for personal reasons.

Not really an ideal batting performance.

And will be relying on Anderson and the spinners to get us back into the game.

To be honest it looks a stronger X1 than the last match. But until we find a way to play Axel and Ashwin we look distinctly second best. Lets just hope we can battle and keep the margin of defeat down.

That referral when Pant was out lbw was crucial. That rule that half the ball must be hitting is bollox. If he'd have been given out I felt England would have a lead. As it is I can see India having a lead of 50+now.

2 sessions were excellent but Pant killed us after tea counter attacking taking advantage of some tired bowing.

Oh dear - will we make it to 100?

I presume we have looked totally bamboozled by the spin again.

Did anyone notice that Wood's first over yesterday was a maiden.

Must be quite a rarity in International T20.

India will get 300 plus and we might have a problem or two as Morgan and Billings are both off the field injured so will they bat ?

England were doing all right but they can't score since Roy and Stokes went.

What a pathetic effort after Bairstow and Roy took them to 135-0.

They were like rabbits in headlights from then on.

Were they doped.

Completely outdone in all three formats of the game. Well done India.

England should have won that 3 overs out, but India limited them to only one boundary in those 18 balls.

Also well done Sam Curran.

Seems its get runs up the top or bust.
