  • 7:25 pm – After Shahin’s double strike removed Hardik and Jadeja, the game took an interesting turn. Pakistan will be smelling blood, and there’s a real chance that India won’t bat their full 50 overs. India stands at 246/8 after 45 overs (Hardik 2*, Kuldip 0*).
  • 7:21 pm – Wicket! Two wickets in two overs for Pakistan. Nasim’s first wicket, as Shardul tries to change his fortunes by moving across the stumps. Shadab takes him, and India has slightly lost its way. Jasprit Bumrah is the new batsman. India 242/8 after 44.1 overs (Shardul 0*, Kuldip 0*).
  • 7:19 pm – Wicket! Shaheen is now in the groove and is hitting the right lines and lengths. This could turn the game in Pakistan’s favor as Hardik falls after scoring 87 off 90 balls, providing Pakistan’s star bowler with another crucial scalp. Shardul Thakur is out in the middle now. India 239/6 after 43.1 overs (Shardul 0*, Jadeja 14*).
  • 6:59 pm – The pitch might be slowing down, but it has done its job. It’s now up to Jadeja, Hardik, and possibly Shardul Thakur to get a good score for India as they still have 300+ in sight. Pakistan hopes their pace bowlers can mount a strong challenge and keep the score below 260. India is at 221/5 after 40 overs (Hardik 80*, Jadeja 3*).
  • 6:12 pm – Both the batsmen are starting to look settled now, and Pakistan’s spinners have been ineffective so far. If someone believes in the old saying of doubling the score after 30 overs, then India should aim for a target of 280-300, which seemed impossible not long ago. India is at 149/4 after 30 overs (Hardik 38*, Kishan 56*).
  • 5:52 pm – Babar is trying to break this partnership, and he brings Shaheen back for another over. It might take a bit of time as both Indian batsmen are looking comfortable in the middle and have put up a good partnership. India is at 127/4 after 25 overs (Hardik 30*, Kishan 43*).
  • 5:33 pm – The spinners are working in tandem, and it’s giving some breathing space to the Pakistan bowling line-up. Despite losing wickets around him, Kishan is still going strong, and the scoring rate is healthy. India is at 102/4 after 20 overs (Hardik 16*, Kishan 32*).
  • 5:10 pm – Pakistan continues to attack at regular intervals as India’s top-order struggles in the first 15 overs. India is at 72/4 after 15 overs (Hardik 5*, Kishan 14*).
  • 5:07 pm – Wicket! Rauf strikes again! Middle and leg stump dislodged by Shaheen’s speed, clocked at 147 km/h. Khurdi was looking set, but his troublesome stay has come to an end, taking just 32 balls for 10 runs. Here comes Hardik Pandya. India is at 66/4 after 14.1 overs (Hardik 0*, Kishan 13*).
  • 4:55 pm – The break is complete, and we’re back. Haris Rauf to continue from the Corridor End. A brief spell, just for one over. India is at 52/3 after 11.3 overs (Kishan 2*, Gill 7*).
  • 4:42 pm – A short update here as the players are back on the field after coming out of the outfield. Square leg stays.
