Shares that it was a good pitch to bat on and surprisingly there wasn't much movement for the pacers. He talks about the team combination he picked for this match and tells that Deepak Hooda came in for Sanju Samson as they wanted the sixth bowling option.

Post the resumption the game was reduced to 29-overs-per-side. Shikhar Dhawan tried to up the ante straightaway but was dismissed early. Suryakumar Yadav came out with an attacking intent and too

Just when Suryakumar Yadav was starting to get a move on for India, the rain made an appearance once again. Let's hope that this is just a passing shower.

    Shikhar Dhawan, the captain of India, says that weather is not in their control. He hopes to have a good third game. Shares that it was a good pitch to bat on and surprisingly there wasn't much movement for the pacers. He talks about the team combination he picked for this match and tells that Deepak Hooda came in for Sanju Samson as they wanted the sixth bowling option. Feels that Deepak Chahar gets more swing than Shardul Thakur and hence he was preferred for this match.

    Summarizing the little action we had - Keeping in mind the overcast conditions, Kane Williamson called it right and sent India into bat. Tim Southee and Matt Henry opened the attack for them with the new balls. Shubman Gill looked in fine nick stroking two delightful boundaries before the rain arrived. Post the resumption, the game was reduced to 29-overs-per-side. Shikhar Dhawan tried to up the ante straightaway but was dismissed early. Suryakumar Yadav came out with an attacking intent and too
