September 02, 2018  19:23

India 95-3 (40 ovs); Target to win: 245 | Scorecard

Rahane sensibly taps Moeen on the off-side for a single and Kohli turns the next on the leg side for another run.

Rashid trying a bit too much, bowling quite a few varieties as he ends up dragging one down but Kohli can only pull it to deep midwicket for two runs.

Five runs from Rashid's fourth over, who is proving to be much easier to deal with than Moeen.

Moeen gets one to turn sharply but Kohli is able to rock back and flick it to fine leg region for three runs.

Rashid is taken off after four overs in his first spell when he failed to make an impact as he makes way for Anderson.

Kohli drives the second ball through the off-side for a single and Rahane steers the fourth ball to the vacant thirdman region for a couple and then takes one.

Change of ends for Rashid as he takes over from Moeen, who bowled a tight spell of 13 overs for 25 runs.

Rahane clips the third ball to fine leg for one before Kohli hits the next ball straight back for three.

The last ball is short as Rahane pulls it behind square leg for another single to get five runs from the over.

Anderson gets the ball to nip away slightly as Rahane is beaten outside the off-stump before he takes a single on the leg side.

Kohli steers Anderson to thirdman region and comes across for two runs as Bairstow sends in a quick throw from the deep but the India captain has made it home and the TV umpire confirms it.

Another single to Kohli as India reach 95 for three in 40 overs, needing another 150 runs for victory.

Kohli is looking solid on 41, while Rahane has made 31 with the duo putting on 73 runs for the fourth wicket so far.
