Full outside off and Shreyas swipes across the line but it goes off the inside half of the bat to midwicket. Shreyas keeps strike with a single to long-off.

Cameron Green into the attack. FOUR! Gill steps out and drills it down the ground and gets a boundary despite not really middling that one. Gill pulls out as Green is about to delivery. Looks like there is someone in front of the sight screen. It is also drizzling now in Indore. The curse of the Asia Cup seems to be following India. SIX! Short and Gill pulls this away over fine-leg for a maximum. The players are coming off the field as the rain seems to have gotten a little heavier.
- September 24, 2023 14:086IND 68/1 in 9 overs

- September 24, 2023 13:574IND 26/1 in 5 overs

Low bounce again after the ball angles across Gill. Beaten! This is closer to off-stump and Gill pokes at this short of a length delivery and doesn’t connect. This is wider outside off and Gill shoulders arms this time. Back of a length on middle and Gill guides it to third for a single. Good second over from Johnson.
- September 24, 2023 13:35IND 14/0 in 2 overs
Josh Hazlewood from the other end. Good first ball. Back of a length on off-stump and Gill defends off the front foot. Similar delivery and Gill runs it down to third-man for a single and gets off the mark. Top of off-stump line again, this time to Gaikwad, who defends it. Good accuracy so far from Hazlewood. This is full outside off, swinging away slightly and Gaikwad drives to the cover fielder. This is around a good length outside off and nips in a little as Gaikwad shoulders arms. Short of a length outside off and Gaikwad leaves again as the ball keeps low and goes to the keeper after bouncing twice.
- September 24, 2023 13:324IND 13/0 in 1 over

This is short of a length angling across off-stump and Gaikwad defends it on the off-side. FOUR! This is too full outside off and Gaikwad leans into the drive through covers for a boundary. Full on the pads again but Johnson gets away this time as Gaikwad pats it to mid-on for a dot ball. Good length angling across on off-stump and Gaikwad defends it to point. FIVE-WIDES!
