2.4 overs (0 Run) NOT OUT! That has pitched outside leg! India lose their only review very early. Kohli is not happy with the decision as he feels, quite some part of the ball did pitch inside leg. The delivery straightens after pitching. Zazai looks to play at it but misses. It hits the pad. An appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Kohli, Dhoni and Shami have a chat and then India review. Replays roll in and they show that the on-field call is the right one.
India review as an appeal for an LBW has been turned down. Is there an inside edge? Maybe the pitching is an issue. Well, by the first replay, it seems out. Nothing on Ultra Edge. Hawk Eye though shows, it is pitching outside leg.
2.3 overs (0 Run) Slightly shorter and around off, Zazai looks to cut but ends up chopping it to covers.
2.2 overs (0 Run) Lovely stuff! Bends his back on this one and lands it on off, the ball takes off. Zazai once again hangs his bat out but luckily for him, it whizzes past the outside edge. Dhoni takes it and then falls over. That must have hit his gloves really hard.
2.1 overs (0 Run) Swing and a miss! Length and outside off, Zazai looks to go downtown but misses.
1.6 overs (0 Run) Another back of a length ball on off, Naib keeps it out. So Bumrah too bowls a good first over.

1.3 overs (0 Run) Good length and on off, it is kept out.
1.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR BYES! That is a very difficult take for Dhoni! Bumrah lands this outside off on a length, this one jags back in sharply. Cuts Zazai into half. It bounces just before Dhoni who dives to his right to collect it, he also gets some uneven bounce and it goes over him for a boundary.
