Kohli hits half-century to boost India
September 02, 2018  20:01

India 122-3 (50 ovs); Target to win: 245 | Scorecard

Moeen gets the ball to jump off length from the rough as Rahane manages to keep it down as he turns it on the leg side.

This is desperate time for England as they need a breakthrough to check India's progress.

Ben Stokes comes back into the attack but he doesn't seem to be bowling at full steam at the moment.

Kohli is not taking any chances as he watchfully plays out a maiden over from the medium pacer.

Both Rahane and Kohli are willing to work hard for their runs, not trying anything fancy at the moment, showing good commitment to the cause.

Rahane flicks Moeen on the leg side for one before Kohli clips the last ball through midwicket for a couple.

Kohli gets inside the line and glances a short ball from Stokes fine on the leg side for a four to raise the 100-run stand for the fourth wicket. That also brings up 4000 runs for Kohli as the Test captain, the first Indian to achieve the feat.

India have completed half the task as they reach 122 for three in 50 overs, needing another 123 runs for victory.

Kohli is looking in complete control on 58, while Rahane is providing good support on 41.
