A strong comeback from England in final few overs restricted India to 329 allout  with 10 balls to go after Rishabh Pant (78) and Hardik Pandya (64) batted superbly in their 99 run stand to first rescue India from 157/4 and put them within striking distance of a 370 score .  Quick los of wickets at the back end and Krunal Pandya’s inability to take on the bowling today halted India’s progress though Shardul Thakur played a fine cameo of 30 off 21 balls 
Earlier the openers put on 103 in 14 overs before Rohit (37) was bowled by Rashid’s googly . Dhawan hit a polished 67 but both Kohli and Rahul were dismissed cheaply for 7 apiece 
For England Rashid bowled well in first half of the innings but it was Mark Wood (3/34) whose pace made the difference at the back end of India’s innings 

IND 329/10 (48.2 Ovs) 
Pant(wk)   78(62)
Dhawan    67(56)
Hardik       64(44)

Mark Wood    3/34
Adil Rashid    2/81
