who made no mistake.
It was the third over when the first runs came from the bat off Trott then scored four boundaries off Praveen’s 3rd over, kick starting the team’s charge. He quickly reached to 34 before Vinay Kumar enticed him to play away from
his body, which resulted in a simple chance for wicket-keeper,
Bopara then joined
Just as it the tourists got some sort of momentum, both fell in successive overs. While Bopara was caught lbw by Ravicandran Ashwin, Pietersen was send packing by, with Dhoni taking a good low catch.
This had the batting side five down at the score of 121 and left’s newest prodigy, Jonny Bairstow to battle out with the long list of bowling all-rounders.
The youngster held the innings well and got good support from remained the aggressor, striking two hefty blows in the process.
However, he failed to put the finishing touches to the game and departed after making 42.
200 came in the 42nd over and the visitors will be banking on the power-hitting of Bairstow to guide them to a fighting total.
