England 44-3 (7 ovs) vs India 148-5 | Scorecard

Hardik Pandya comes into the attack to bowl the final over of Powerplay. Root shuffles across and sweeps the fourth ball where Umesh makes a fine stop diving near the ropes to keep it down to three.

The last ball is short as Alex Hales pulls it over midwicket to end the over with a four as England reach 42 for two in six overs.

With the Powerplay gone, India introduce spin as leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal comes into the attack.

He strikes in his first over, with the wicket of Root, who goes for the sweep but misses it completely and is bowled for nine.

That was the googly as Root again failed to read the spinner and perished playing a reckless shot.
