Rahul, Rahane keep England at bay
September 11, 2018  16:43

India 111-3 (34 ovs); Target to win: 464 | Scorecard

Rahane looks quite positive as he takes a couple of steps down the pitch and punches Curran through the covers for a four.

In the next over, Rahul comes down the track and tries a big hit on the leg side but fails to make connection.

He then shuffles across his stumps and looks to turn Moeen on the leg side but is hit on the pads. The umpire rules it not out before England take the DRS which again goes against them as the impact is outside the line of off-stump.

Rahul has taken a few chances as he has stroked his way to 62 from 89 balls, having hit 10 fours so far.

Curran gifts Rahane a full toss who steers it square on the off-side for a four to bring up India's 100, in the 33rd over.

In the next over, Rahul hits Moeen for a boundary through the covers to raise the 100-run stand from 179 balls.

Rahul pulls out of a shot very late when Moeen was about to deliver and wicketkeeper Bairstow doesn't look too impressed with his late withdrawal. He shuffles across to the next ball, sweeping the off-spinner fine for a boundary.

Moeen drops slightly short as Rahul makes room and hits the last ball through the covers for two runs to get 10 from the over.
