The Indian opener had started the game with a brilliant boundary off the first ball of the game. Playing big, KL Rahul made a mistake realizing the situation and the outside edge of the bat touched the ball. The ball hit directly into the goalkeeper’s hands.

England won the toss against India
Earlier, England captain Jos Buttler won the toss and elected to field first against India at the Adelaide Oval. “We will bowl first. It will be a great atmosphere here. The dimensions are different, we have to adapt. We have two changes – Malan and Wood out with injuries – Salt and Jordan come in. Looks like a good trick. Hopefully it stays good throughout the game,” Buttler said after the win.

“In any case, we have struck first. We have played some good cricket, another opportunity for us to play like we have all tournaments. The important thing is to keep your nerve and take the end of the game. We’ve played these guys quite a bit over the past few years and know what their strengths and weaknesses are. It’s important to take advantage of it. It is important to stay calm and do what we want. It (the injury) was scary, but I’m fine now. With the kind of talent we have, it was difficult (to pick an XI). Same team for us, Rohit Sharma said after the win.
