8.43pm You may think this is a middling total, but batting here doesn't look easy. If you're willing to use your variations, then the batsmen must create their own power. The WI spinners were excellent, so were Cottrell and Kesrick, but a special mention for Shivam Dube, who hit his maiden T20I fifty from No. 3. Rishabh Pant was solid too. Be back in ten minutes for the chase.

Cottrell to Pant, 2 runs, slower ball to end the innings. Slogged behind square. Pant scampers back for the second as India finish on 170 for 7
Cottrell to Chahar, 1 run, good length, on middle. Angling across, and clattered with the swinging bat to deep midwicket

Saurav Prakash: "Despite the result of this match, it was a perfect audition for all players like Dube, Pant, Jadeja, Iyer. I would like to give credit to Kohli for this farsight."

Cottrell to Washington Sundar, OUT, does a salute! Good length on off, and he flat-bats a shot, but it's come off the top-half of the bat. Lobs back to Cottrell, who bends forward on his followthrough to take a soft catch

Washington Sundar c & b Cottrell 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Cottrell to Pant, 1 run, length ball again, and hammered to long on. Just a single
Cottrell to Pant, 2 runs, good length outside off, but very little pace. Swings to the leg side but mistimes it to cow corner
Cottrell to Pant, no run, the bat's gone to square leg! Full, on off, and Pant wants to send it into the beach. But the bat flies off his gloves... probably since his hands are sweaty. Also means it must be getting dewy at the ground
