Rohit Sharma is facing problems early in India’s defence of 173. Arshdeep Singh has been clubbed for 18 and his slower balls are not sticking to the surface. Rohit turned to Yuzvendra Chahal for the sixth over and he gave away 12 too.
It’s been smart batting from both Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis. They were cautious in the first two overs when both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh found some swing. Thereafter they’ve been able to hit through the line with serene confidence.
Earlier, straight after getting hit for a six over long-off, Dasun Shanaka cramped Hardik Pandya for room and had Suryakumar Yadav caught at short third to hamper India’s jostle.
