Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina

After winning the toss England decided to bowl first. England knows that India's batting is very powerful and India is champion in run chase. So England took bowling first. India got a very bad start from opening batsmen. After 6 overs, India lost 3 wickets and made only 39 runs. At this situation match was completely in England's hand. But Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina were on the crease. They continued the momentum of the inning. Both players played very carefully in the beginning and after few overs Raina strikes on England's bowlers. Suresh Raina scored 54 runs in 31 balls. But suddenly Suresh Raina lost his wicket in making more runs. After that Indian captain M S Dhoni came at the crease. He gave his contribution with virat kohli in making fast runs. Virat kohli scored 74 runs in 48 balls and remained not out. After 20 overs, India scored 178 runs.

England needed 179 runs to win the warm up match. They got a good start. India failed in taking early wickets. But England's run rate was slow with compare to the target which they were following. In last overs England had wickets in hand, but they need big overs because they had to make more runs and they didn't have enough overs. In trying to make fast runs England lost wickets and match went into India's hand. After 20 overs England's final score was 158/6. India won the match by 20 runs. Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina batted very well in this India VS England warm up match. I hope you enjoyed the Highlights.
