Overs: 18.1 / 20.0


Vipin: "First time root didn't make 50 in a match on this tour " Gosh, good spot! A six needed to complete the run of form ...

Rob Stow: "3 overs for 25 is a decent return so far by Bumrah given he went for 20 off his first over." Valid

End of over 17. 3 runs this over. 132/3 after 101 balls.

Al D: "Thanks Andrew! I can't get rid of the image of Roy Fredericks in a tutu since you compared him to a ballerina." I aim to please

Stokes enters the fray with remarkably little left to do ... time for a late twist?

Ujjwal Saxena: ""I guess he is already 31, so maybe they are looking further afield for the next World T20" Yeah, right Yuvraj, Raina and Dhoni makes up for a younger squad :)" True, though they are also established performers. Kedar has exploded from leftfield

End of over 15. 6 runs this over. 120/2 after 90 balls.
EJG Morgan 45 (36b 1x4 3x6 ) YS Chahal 4-0-27-2

Duncan: "All the resource of the internet to look up what 'pirouette' means, and they choose to ask Andrew Miller, the commentator on a Cricinfo T20I match! Quite some power, Mr Miller!" LMGTFY

End of over 14. 11 runs this over. 114/2 after 84 balls.
JE Root 27 (31b 2x4 0x6 ) Parvez Rasool 3-0-23-0

Ajay Kashyap: "Is Kedar injured? His recent innings were full of T20 action. Though I had asked this Q b4 start of this match. Hoping any clue?? Miller!!" Good question. Don't think he's in the squad. I guess he is already 31, so maybe they are looking further afield for the next World T20 ... just a hunch

Rohit: "What is pirouette as mentioned in Ball 11.3 ?" A twirl. A bit like a ballerina. Or Roy Fredericks, if you prefer

End of over 13. 8 runs this over. 102/2 after 77 balls.

Dan: "The earlier ODI hundred appears to have done wonders for Morgan, he seems to have regained that calm aura and trusts his power again. Long may it continue! " Completely true. He has faith in his game again, after a tough 2016. I suspect his stunning chase in the BBL was every bit as important though.

Mohan khatri: "Every thing half way? Not wickets though :)" Well, I did say almost ...

End of over 11. 6 runs this over. 82/2 after 66 balls.

Avinash: "Commentator seems energetic today..!what's the secret behind it Andrew..!" Tea. Lots of tea

Jimbo Crights: "Wasn't Bumrah in Thundercats?" No, that was his dad. But you can see where he gets his delivery stride from

End of over 8. 5 runs this over. 62/2 after 48 balls.

MeanMrMustard: ""Shailya Tiwari: "Dont forget the CT2013 final when India defended 129 against England. Legit T20 game that one!" Good point, well made" Any T20 match which includes Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott in England's batting line up can not be considered a serious contest." Another good point, well made

Rahul Kapoor: "yeah but India do not have Ishant anymore" They don't have Kapil Dev either. Life goes on

End of over 7. 9 runs this over. 57/2 after 42 balls.

Andy: "There should be another category for bowled. Roy was - Inside edge bowled & Billings was - Clean bowled! Dont you agree!?" it used to be called played on. Back in the mists of time

End of over 5. 3 runs this over. 46/2 after 30 balls.

Siddhesh: "Good work from Chahal, but the damage has been done. England can afford to just tap the ball around and cruise to their target now. The first 3 overs from either side might have well made the difference. Is this pessimistic enough for you Andrew?" Perfectly miserable, well done.

Jake: "Sloppy, sloppy cricket from England. Momentum was squarely with them, but two unwise shots and the game is in the balance again. Disappointing." Now, now. You can't applaud them for taking the attack to the bowlers, then slam them for getting out attacking. The rest of the team are big boys, they've been given a fine start

End of over 4. 7 runs this over. 43/2 after 24 balls.

Gosh, this one-day tour is rarely dull

Devine: "You have just offended 1.2 billion people with your "wily goat" comment!" What sportsman has ever been offended at being called the #GOAT? Check the lead story on if in any doubt...

Dhaval : "Looking at Moeen Ali's performance, India should have considered opening bowling with a spinner. Raina maybe. Just a bit of a surprise. What England did very well was not giving India ball onto the bat that easy. India missed a trick here. " I think Kohli has heard your cry. Here come's the leggie Chahal

Chin: "Nehra made his Test debut when Tony Blair was 2 years into his PM stint. Hope that puts things into perspective, Andy" Good grief

Pranav Menon: "Seems like England are chasing the target in 10 overs. Bumrah's one over as much as Mooen's entire spell. Wish there were wickets."

pags: "I know I am too optimistic but India will win this match." That's the most pessimistic optimism I've ever read

As Sam Billings cuts loose, have a read of Will Macpherson's interview with him. Full of interesting snippets

shubham: "Bhuvneshwar kumar is becoming the best 12th man after kyle mills now. So is he too going to opt for kolpak deal ??:D" Who knows what sort of india free trade deal the Brexit government will be cooking up in the coming months...

I've asked this before, but how is Ashish Nehra still a thing? He was routing England at the 2003 World Cup when Dhoni and Yuvraj were still nippers!

Hypocaust: "India have won 2, lost 8 and tied 1 when defending less than 150 in a T20I " Well, that's tasty reading for England's stats bank
