Over 25.4: WICKET! SHARDUL THAKUR! A bit of a Shoaib Akthar in his celebration there as he gets Malan to pull a bouncer (like that shot that went for four) and this is straight to Rohit at midwicket. Malan out for 50, Thakur has three.
HALF CENTURY FOR DAWID MALAN: The first of his ODI career. Gets there with a pull shot past midwicket as he reads the bouncer nice and early.
England 164/5 after 25 overs: A six for Moeen Ali off Krunal Pandya.
Shardul Thakur deserves the credit for a different kind of a slower delivery it looked like. A single-finger-behind-the seam type slower delivery (and he might tell you he fully meant the full toss too!)
WICKET! It’s the day of the dreaded full toss. First KL Rahul, then Ben Stokes, now Liam Livingstone. Caught and bowled. Shardul Thakur strikes, England lose their fifth. 156/5 after 24 overs.
England 152/4 after 23 overs: 7 runs in that Krunal over.
Is that a bit of self-troll from BCCI?
England have gone from 100 to 150 in 36 balls. Good little partnership this and the rate is still within reach for the visitors.
England 145/4 after 22 overs: Thakur comes back and slows things down for now at least.
