Varun Aaron, Oshane Thomas, Shreyas Gopal and Jaydev Unadkat scalped two wickets each for the hosts.

Meanwhile, Liam Livingstone was promoted as an opener with former skipper Ajinkya Rahane. The England batsman was the aggressor in the opening partnership as the right-hander scored a fine knock of 44 runs off just 26 balls with the help of four fours and three sixes. However, Livingstone’s innings was ended by Rashid Khan who was able to produce the inside edge which was nicely taken by Wriddhiman Saha.
