India National Cricket Team pacer Prasidh Krishna looked good with the ball in the second T20I of the five-match series against Australia National Cricket Team at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, November 26.
Krishna didn’t have a good outing in the first T20I against the Aussies and he was taken to cleaners. The right-arm pacer conceded 50 runs and picked up just one wicket in his quota of overs.
In the second T20I, Prasidh Krishna made a stellar comeback and picked up a three-wicket haul in the match. However, he wasn’t very economical as he gave away 41 runs.
Prasidh Krishna came to bowl the 16th over and further damaged the Australian batting unit. He started off the over by picking the wicket of Sean Abbott and finished off the over by dismissing Nathan Ellis.
On the first ball of the over, Prasidh Krishna nailed a sensational yorker that went on to rattle the stumps of Abbott. Also, on the last delivery of the over, he bowled a length delivery that went past Nathan Ellis’ bat to shatter the stumps.
The boys are not putting too much pressure on me – Suryakumar Yadav
India National Cricket Team posted a huge total of 235/4 on the board. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Ishan Kishan hit terrific fifties while Rinku Singh, Suryakumar Yadav, and Tilak Nagar provided a sensational finishing touch.
Defending the target, the Indian bowlers looked threatening with the ball despite the dew factor. They managed to restrict the Aussies to 191/9 to win the match by 44 runs.
Speaking during the post-match presentation ceremony, captain Suryakumar Yadav said that the players are not putting too much pressure on him. He elaborated:
“The boys are not putting too much pressure on me. They are taking onus. I told them before, to be prepared to bat first. There was a lot of dew. We talked about defending it later. When I saw Rinku came in to bat in the last game, the composure he showed was brilliant. It reminded me on someone(laughs).”
