struck his maiden half-century at M S Dhoni's spiritual home to silence his critics as India cricket shrugged off a poor start to post a challenging 287 for eight in the first One Day International (ODI) against at M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. (70 off 88), who is emerging as a solid number four, and Pant (71 off 69) paired up for a 114-run stand for the fourth wicket after India lost opener (6) and skipper (4) in the seventh over of the innings. It was Iyer's third consecutive half-century.

(36 off 56) too struggled on a slow surface before Iyer and Pant resurrected the innings with their gritty partnership. A quickfire half-century partnership between (40 off 35) and Ravindra Jadeja (21 off 21), who batted ahead of debutant Shivam Dube, provided the thrust in the slog overs. Left-arm paceman (2/46 from 10 overs including 3 maidens), Keemo Paul (2/41) and Alzarri Joseph (2/45) were among the wickets for the visiting team.
