England end with 350:
115 in the last 10, 105 of which came in the last 8. England have thoroughly bossed the last half-an-hour or so. Kohli looks flustered. He’s had a forgettable outing in the field with his main spinner and chief death bowler enjoying rare off days. 350 is not new for England, they’ve been achieving it rather regularly in this format post the 2015 world cup. But will there be dew. Can Kohli & co. chase this down? Join us in just a bit for the chase.
Moeen Ali too chipped in with a handy cameo to push the England total further and 350/7 is a massive score on the board. Captain Kohli didn’t look too impressed with the bowlers in the last half an hour or so. However, his team will still believe as the pitch is very good to bat on. All they want is for the dew to take effect and make bowling tougher. An interesting chase awaits us on the other side of the break one feels.
Brilliant hitting in the death overs has given England a very good total – 105 runs were scored in the last 8 overs. After Jason Roy got the visitors off to a great start with a 36-ball fifty, Root played the anchor role to perfection, also recording a fifty in the process. Morgan and Buttler promised and perished but Stokes bludgeoned his way to a 33-ball fifty – the second fastest for England in ODIs against India.
