INDIA INNINGS

Over 18 || Score 158/5

Meaker to bowl his final over. And Raina is run-out first ball! Dhoni played it towards mid off and Raina wanted a single, Dhoni sent him back but Morgan dived to his right and hit the stumps before Raina could make it to the non-striker’s end. Excellent effort there from the English skipper. Meaker fires a short ball and Dhoni mauls that towards deep square leg for a boundary! Meaker fires another short ball, on the off side and Dhoni gets a bottom edge for no run. Dhoni punches the next ball between cover and mid off for a boundary! And Dhoni lifts the next ball over the fielder at point for a couple. INDIA WIN BY 5 WICKETS!

MS Dhoni* 24(21b), Jadeja 0* (0)

SK Raina run out 26 (19b)

====================================================================================

Over 17 || Score 148/4

====================================================================================

Over 13 || Score 115/4

Meaker brought back into the attack. And the move works as Kohli is bowled! Kohli attempted a pull shot and the ball didn’t bounce as much as he expected, gets an inside edge and the stumps are rattled. England miss a run-out chance as Dhoni hit the last ball towards mid off and wanted a single, went out of his crease and then suffered some cramp as Morgan missed a direct hit.

Bresnan bowled a short ball and Gambhir pulled that straight into the hands of the fielder at deep square leg. Bresnan fires another short ball, Rahane pulls that straight into the hands of the fielder at short fine leg, who grassed a sitter! Meaker it is and he can’t believe it. But Rahane cannot capitalize on that dropped chance as he hits one to Samit Patel at mid on. That wasn’t necessary and Rahane crawls out of the ground. Bresnan dismisses the opener, that was some over!

====================================================================================

Over 2 || Score 21/0
Bresnan to bowl the second over. And he too, starts off with a Wide. And Rahane dispatches the second ball over deep midwicket for a MONSTROUS SIX! Great timing on that occasion from the right-hander. Gambhir finds the gap on the off side for a boundary! Twelve runs from the over.

Dinda fires in fractionally short and Hales handsomely pulls that for a boundary Dinda follows it with another short ball and Hales has no problem pulling that for his consecutive boundary! 9 from the over.

====================================================================================

India and England have played 5 T20 matches against each other so far. England are ahead with 3 wins as compared to India's 3.

England squad: 1 Alex Hales, 2 Michael Lumb, 3 Luke Wright, 4 Eoin Morgan (skipper), 5 Samit Patel, 6 Jos Buttler (wk), 7 Tim Bresnan, 8 James Tredwell, 9 Stuart Meaker, 10 Danny Briggs, 11 Jade Dernbach

Indian squad: 1 Gautam Gambhir, 2 Ajinkya Rahane, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 Suresh Raina, 6 MS Dhoni (skipper), 7 R Ashwin, 8 Ravindra Jadeja, 9 Piyush Chawla, 10 Ashok Dinda, 11 Parwinder Awana

TOSS: Dhoni won the toss and he has decided to bowl first.

After suffering a humiliating loss against England in the Test series, India would want to get back to winning ways as they meet the Poms in the first T20 match to be played at Pune.

Under-fire MS Dhoni would want to bury the past and begin with an impressive performance. Most of the Indian players have been out of form of late, and they all will be determined to put a good show. India would want Virat Kohli to continue his great form in the limited overs.

England on the other hand would want to continue their winning momentum. Eoin Morgan, their new skipper would be under some sort of pressure. The top brass of the England squad delivered in the Test series and they would be high on confidence after defeating the Indian team on their home soil after 28 years.

India squad

MS Dhoni (c & wk), R Ashwin, P Awana, PP Chawla, AB Dinda, G Gambhir, RA Jadeja, V Kohli, B Kumar, A Mithun, AM Rahane, SK Raina, AT Rayudu, RG Sharma, Yuvraj Singh

England squad

EJG Morgan (c), JM Bairstow, TT Bresnan, DR Briggs, JC Buttler (wk), JW Dernbach, AD Hales, JAR Harris, MJ Lumb, SC Meaker, SR Patel, JE Root, JC Tredwell, LJ Wright
