However,  a 52-run stand between Jonny Bairstow (49) and Liam Livingstone (30) gave the innings some stability before the latter was knocked over by seamer Mohammed Shami in the 15th, at 129. At the same time, the former suffered the same fate off pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the 19th, 34 runs later.

Moeen Ali (43) provided some late fireworks to allow England to post a challenging total of 188/5.

A 43-run stand resulted between Kishan and Kohli (11), as spinner Liam Livingstone got rid of the skipper in the 13th.

While Kishan had scored his half-century by this time, he retired out in the 16th over, making way for Suryakumar Yadav (8), who pacer David Willey dismissed in the 18th at 168.
