Hardik Pandya took two wickets but leaked a lot of runs while Bumrah and Behrendorff took one scalp each. Chasing the target, Top-order got starts but none could convert into a big score before stand-in skipper Kieron Pollard arrived and played an match-winning knock of 83 runs in 31 balls involving 10 big sixes.

Batting first, Buttler and Rahane gave a quick start to the team but got out cheaply. Middle order also failed to fire. However, 28-run knock from Stokes and a late cameo of 19 runs in 7 balls from Shreyas Gopal led them to a respectable total of 151. Defending the target, Pace quartet of Stokes-Kulkarni-Archer-Unadkat bowled well with Stokes taking two scalps but a last ball six snatched the much-needed victory from hosts. They will be determined to get into winning ways as soon as possible before its get too late for them to stay alive in the season.
