India lost Mayank early on. He scored four runs before being trapped LBW. The ball shaped in and Mayank was caught at the crease as it hit his pads. Rohit departed next after lunging into a forward defence as the ball took an outside edge. A sharp catch was taken at gully. There was enough assistance for the spinner here.
India showed fight as Vihari and Kohli got together to forge a stand. The important thing was that the two maintained a decent run rate. Both players played some good shots for fours and kept the scorecard ticking along. In the 23rd over, Vihari was given out LBW but he survived after a DRS call. However, moments later Vihari departed for 31.
