Suryakumar Yadav made a half-century on T20I debut and Shreyas Iyer accelerated in the death overs as India made 185 for 8 after being asked to bat first by England in the 4th T20I in Ahmedabad. Suryakumar made 57 off 31 and Shreyas Iyer mad 37 off 18 as a stop-and-start Indian inning had enough gas to push themselves to thei highest score in the series thus far. But it has to be kept in mind that this wicket appears to be the best for batting among all the pitches in the series. Jofra Archer was excellent with the ball with 4 for 33, including two wickets in the final over. Shardul Thakur’s 10 off 4 helped India make it past 180. (LIVE SCORECARD

    India 170/6 in 18.5 overs.

  • 20:45 (IST)

    India 167/5 in 18 overs

    A big 18-run over there and two more of those would be very handy for India.

    Iyer has started to tee off. Can England stop him?

    Shot of night? Maybe.

    17 runs in the over so far, one ball still left.

  • 20:36 (IST)

    WICKET! Pant b Archer 30 (23)

  • 20:30 (IST)


    Iyer finds the gap.

    Curran strikes on the very next ball. It’s almost a carbon copy of the previous shot. He goes for the lap sweep again. But this time there is a fielder in the deep at square leg and he dives forward and takes an excellent catch.

    The soft signal by the on-field umpire is ‘out’ even as it’s referred to the third umpire to check if the catch was clean.

    The third umpire takes a long, close look at the catch and deems it clean.

    India have lost their fourth wicket.

    110/4 in 13.2 overs.

    He gets some room outside off and slaps this ball from Stokes through mid-off this time for another four.

  • 20:01 (IST)


    Suryakumar breaks the shackles.

  • 20:00 (IST)

    Over 11: India 79/3

    Jordan mixes his pace and slips in several slower deliveries.

    WICKET! Kohli st Buttler b Rashid 1 (5)

  • 19:43 (IST)

    India 59/1 after 7 overs.

  • 19:33 (IST)

    Over 6: India 45/1

    India have scored 45 runs in the first six overs. Given their predicaments of late, they’ll be happy with this start. England wouldn’t be too perturbed either as this looks like a good batting wicket.

  • 19:31 (IST)


    Suryakumar looks in great touch. He plays late on this ball that’s outside off stump. He opens the face of the bat and guides it past the man at short third for four.

  • 19:27 (IST)

    Over 5: India 34/1
