While fielding, Indian opener KL Rahul, in the 16th over, when Jonny Bairstow hit a ball fell down with some impact while trying to catch the ball. He was attended in the drink break and was told not good to continue. However, he returned back to open for India. But he went for a duck and gave India a weak base to build.

Even Rohit's century didn't help India as they lost to England by 31 runs. Dhoni, who was criticized for his strike rate, played well this match. Kohli scored half century again in the match.
