KL Rahul landed on his back while attempting a catch at the boundary. He is being treated and assessed. He is expected to be back, read the statement. <p></p> <p></p>Harsha Bhogle on air mentioned that Rahul s injury is an external one, so there will be no issue as far as him opening the innings is concerned. He can bat anywhere as well. <p></p> <p></p>Opting to bat, England were off to a flier with <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jason-roy/news/">Jason Roy</a>, back in the side despite being 80 per cent fit after recuperating from a hamstring injury, forging 160 runs for the opening wicket with Jonny Bairstow. The dangerous partnership was broken by Kuldeep Yadav, but it was 12<sup>th</sup> man Jadeja, who picked up a stunner after he ran to his left from long-on, dived full length forward at full speed and took it inches from the ground. Roy departed for a well made 66 off 57. <p></p> <p></p>England need to beat India and later New Zealand to ensure they go through. If not, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka continue to breathe down England s neck. Their problems are self-inflicted.
