Despite a good start, Suryakumar Yadav could not show much command in this match. As soon as Surya came, Shadab opened the account by hitting a boundary and then also dismissed Nawaz’s ball towards the boundary. Suryakumar scored 13 runs in 10 balls and Asif Ali was caught by Nawaz on the square leg boundary.
