Spread the love

A sublime 108 by KL Rahul & a steady 66 by Virat Kohli set up a strong base for India for Pant (77 off 40 balls ) & Hardik (35 off 16 balls ) to destroy the England bowling at the back end to put India in a strong position at 336/6 in 50 overs .  


India began slowly with both openers going relatively cheaply but Kohli &  Rahul looked at complete ease . Kohli again missing out on a 100 but Rahul after a horror T20 series scoring back to back 50 plus scores this time completing a superb 100 laced with effortless shots. 


However if Virat Rahul batting was civil , Pant and Hardik smashed the England attack as sixes rained a Pune . For England only Reece Topley (2/50 off 8 overs ) & Moeen escaped brutal punishment.


Huge target for England to chase as India look strong favourites to close out the series today
