Pitch Report

"The average first innings total here is 174, but I think it's better than that. Today we are seeing quite a bare patch at this end and also at the far end. So it might be a little bit drier but generally it's even coverage of grass, comes onto the bat," reckon Samuel Badree and Simon Katich

Just 2 In First Over

Swing has been on offer again in Mullanpur as Azmatullah Omarzai made the ball talk in the first over giving away just two runs in the opening over to Prabhsimran Singh and Sam Curran.

Shubman Gill | Winning Captain

"Would have liked to finish it earlier, good to get those two points. (Captaincy) It's been very exciting for me to be able to take up this role. Except the over-rate, everything good"

R Sai Kishore Is The Player Of The Match

R Sai Kishore | POTM

"Just trying to give my 120% for the team, playing after 20-25 days, so just wanted to go there, enjoy myself and give my everything...  Instinctively I felt into the wicket and just change of pace was the way to go here, it worked out beautifully."
