Indeed, even after Kohli was gotten at short leg off Moeen for 58, Rahane hauled the runs took the target underneath 100 runs.
Be that as it may, Rahane and Rishabh Pant fell in quick succession to Moeen Ali. This started the batting collapse of India amid which they lost four wickets for 13 runs and were eventually all out on 184 runs.
Moeen Ali is back. Far greater threat than Adil Rashid. But India have the partnership they needed. Irrespective of how much longer it goes, this is highly skilled batting from Kohli and Rahane.
