India batter Virat Kohli wasn't amazed at the way his teammate Ravindra Jadeja got out in the ongoing T20 World 2024 game against Afghanistan. The Super 8 fixture of the game between the teams is underway at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. 

Ravindra Jadeja didn't have the kind of outing he would've wanted with the bat in the ongoing game against Afghanistan. His torrid run with the bat continued as he failed to finish the innings on high for Team India at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. 

Ravindra Jadeja was promoted ahead of Axar Patel but the move didn't work as he failed to set the stage on fire. He got out on a delivery which he could've avoided but his tentativeness saw him getting out early during the 19th over of the first innings. 

Fazalhaq Farooqi bowled a slower bouncer that was very high and it looked a clear wide had the batter left the ball. But he chased the ball and went to cut it and mistimed it to short third to take a long walk back to the pavilion after scoring 7 runs off 4 balls. 

What caught the attention of many was the reaction of Virat Kohli after Ravindra Jadeja got out. The batter, who was sitting in the dugout, looked furious with the shot selection of the all-rounder and even abused him. The video went viral on the internet. Here's the clip:

After Ravindra Jadeja got out, Axar Patel played a crucial hand of 12 runs and powered India to a total of  181 runs. Earlier with the bat, it was Suryakumar Yadav who shined and slammed a half-century that rescued India's innings after they lost early wickets. 

With the ball then India was nothing short of exceptional. Jasprit Bumrah picked up three wickets and gave away just seven runs. Arshdeep Singh also picked three scalps while Kuldeep Yadav bagged two scalps as Rohit Sharma-led side bundled out the opposition for 134 runs to win the game by 47 runs.

Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar was in awe of the way Suryakumar Yadav batted in the game against Afghanistan. He said that having a batter to his quality benefits the team a lot and 181 wouldn't possible had he not been there. Taking to his Twitter account, he explained: 

"Benefits of having the best batter in the world in your side. Surya Kumar Yadav! Only one winner at the halfway stage after India got 181. Well done Team India!" 

Suryakumar Yadav came to bat when India was reeling at 62/3. He came out all guns blazing and changed the complexion of the game with his sensational batting. He scored 53 runs off 28 balls. He batted with a strike rate of around 190 and also hit 5 fours and 3 sixes in his innings.
