Hyderabad: England captain Ben Stokes has won the toss and chosen to bat first in Hyderabad. Openers Ben Duckett and Zak Crawley came out as aggressive as ever as they smashed Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj all around the ground in the first 10 overs. 

However, India came roaring into the game once the spinners came on. Ravichandran Ashwin drew first

blood in the 12th over by dismissing Duckett. Jadeja then got the wicket of Ollie Pope and that brought Joe Root in. Root had a close call off the second ball he faced off Jadeja, with India unsuccessfully trying to overturn an LBW appeal that didn't go their way. Crawley fell soon thereafter but Root and Bairstow have since managed to steady the ship for England.
