Shaheen to Kohli | SIX!
Virat Kohli on the charge against Shaheen Afridi. Sweet connection!!! Three dots ball and Kohli responds in style with a maximum over long-on. That came off right from the middle of Kohli’s bat. IND 29/2 after 4.5 overs
Imad to Suryakumar | FOUR!
Suryakumar Yadav getting into his groove. He means business straightaway! Surya has now got to 11 off 6 balls. This time he sweeps Imad Wasim to end his second over with a boundary. IND 21/2 after 4 overs
Ahead of the start of the game, India and Pakistan players took the knee!
Shaheen to Suryakumar | SIX!
Wow! Wat a strike from Suryakumar Yadav. A mere flick of the wrists and the ball sails over the deep fence. There was a fielder in the deep but the ball clears him comfortably and lands across the fence. SKY smashes the first maximum of India’s innings. IND 14/2 after 3 overs
Shaheen to Rahul | OUT!
Shaheen Afridi is on fire!!! Second wicket for him. This time he smashes KL Rahul’s middle stump with another in-swinger. Rahul plays down the wrong line and the ball curves in sharply, crashing into Rahul’s stumps. Rahul departs for 3 and India have lost both their openers now with nothing on the board. IND 6/2 after 2.1 overs
