a 2nd slip or gully would have snagged that for Sundar

Not a great score but certainly one from which you can launch a victory attempt. Goes without saying they’ll need to bowl well. Wouldn’t want to find themselves any more than 100 runs in deficit, but obviously it goes without saying the ideal scenario would be to bowl India out for under 200.

It’s going to be interesting to see if the long batting tactic pays off in the field. Assume Stokes will take the new ball.

Pant is quickly taking the mantles along the lines of Adam Gilchrist in his prime. Taking matches away from oppositions in the blink of an eye.
