In addition to Livingstone, Atharva Taide also reached 50 before declaring retirement at 55(42).

Shaw, who was reinstated to the XI, performed as expected and scored 54(38).David Warner, his captain, gave his team a solid start. Together, the two scored 94 runs in 10.2 overs until Dhawan caught Warner for 46(31) with an incredible catch. Phil Salt further contributed with a 14-ball 26.
