20th over: England 159-8 (Willey 29, Plunkett 3) Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowls the final over, and the batsmen take turns to mistime shots. The bowler gets a few thing wrong as well: his fourth delivery is wild and wide, and Willey has a massive comic swing and still gets nowhere near it, and then he follows that with another wide. With his assistance England get eight runs from the final over. Advantage India.
19th over: England 151-8 (Willey 25, Plunkett 1) Umesh bowls, full and straight three times. Willey gets a single off the second, and the third swings late, and this movement and some bad luck does for Jordan. Meanwhile, it’s kicked off in Moscow!
