Mohammad Rizwan chops an away going wobble-seamed delivery by Sam Curran on to his stumps. The left-arm medium-pacer draws first blood for England. Astonishingly, the 28-run opening stand between Rizwan and Babar Azam is the highest at the MCG in this tournament.
It has been quite a cagey starty to the game. Rizwan is dismissed, Babar is going at run-a-ball and Mohammad Haris has managed to get off the mark after six dot balls with a top edge. The score is 39/1 at the end of the PowerPlay.
Listen to that CROWD! ðŸ”¥
