Vince only replaced the drink carrier Malan.

And yet he may need to open the batting with Bairstow as Roy has a finger injury

Confirmed Vince opens the batting

India 13-1 after 5.4 overs



Ali to Kohli, no run, dropped! Buttler could rue that. Kohli attempts an expansive drive, this one didn’t turn and went through to take a thin edge. Tough chance but a gettable one

Direct hit of the stump and the man with the name that sounds like a Lynx advert is run out

84/2 17.5 overs

84-2 stokes gets Dhawan for 44

Karthik gone, played on to his stumps chasing a wider one that stayed low…

125-3 24.2 overs

Dhoni and Kohli both batting now.

Oh, I go to make a tea and have a wee and come back to find Kholi is out.

156-4 30.1 overs

Or is he?? Umpires are checking something, they think Buttler may have removed the bales before the ball hit the stumps but, obviously, no he didn’t…

And now Raina gone

158-5 off of 31

Swiftly followed by Dhoni being given out LBW, being reviewed though…but no it was missing the stumps, reprieve for India.

I like Dhoni’s grey beard. He looks very noble.
