Venkatesh out for 22; India 6 downJanuary 21, 2022 17:43
Thakur hits Maharaj down to long-off for a single before the spinner bowls a couple of dots to new man Ravichandran Ashwin.
Ashwin gets off the mark with a single to long-on and Thakur lofts the next ball back over the bowler's head for a four.
Spin from both ends as Shami comes back into the attack. He does well to give away just three singles from the first five balls before Thakur plays the inside out lofted shot for a four, to take India past 250.
In the next over, Ashwin slog sweeps Maharaj for a six over square leg as 11 come from the 47th over.
