7.57 pm: A third wicket falls! D'Arcy Short with the ball now and he picks up Pant's wicket. That dismall was all Behrendorff's. He ran miles to get to the ball and pulls off a diving catch. Brilliant stuff. India is 74/3 after 11 overs.

7.52 pm: Behrendorff gets the wicket of Dhawan! Stoinis catches it before it hits the ground. Or has it?

7.35 pm: Adam Zampa, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack now. After two overs of fireworks, this is a little "dull". Just one boundary off this over, from Rahul. India 61/0 after 7 overs.

7.30 pm: Pat Cummins is given the ball but it makes no difference to Rahul. Two more consecutive sixes, over deep midwicket and then over deep fine leg, before he gets hit near the abdomen in the final delivery of the over. India 53/0 after 6 overs.
