The Indian openers Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan were both dismissed early. Then came Rahul Tripathi who also did not last long as he was also dismissed in the 11th over. Later Sundar followed him after being run out by Tickner. However, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya made the innings stable after the quick wickets.
