In the finale of the Asia Cup 2018 in Dubai, Yuzvendra Chahal picked up the wicket of Imrul Kayes and helped India put the pressure back on the opposition.

However, earlier in the day, India skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to field first. The opening duo Mehidy Hasan and Liton Das batted tremendously well and scored 120 runs for the first wicket stand. Das, mainly, was looking furious to score runs in every possible ball.

Meanwhile, during the game, Chahal had dropped Liton Das off Ravindra Jadeja, and at that moment, it looked like a colossal mistake. However, MS Dhoni’s expressions did tell the story as well. Jadeja had flighted the delivery, and the ball took the top edge of the bat and stayed in the air before Yuzi dropped it.

Later, on the last delivery of the 24th over, Yuzvendra Chahal took the wicket of Imrul Kayes as India got their second of the day.

However, Kayes never seemed to read Chahal. He kept playing down the wrong line a couple of times and the first time he got stuck on the pad;, the umpire raised his finger. The leg-break turned just enough to beat Kayes’ forward pad on the inside edge struck on the back thigh.

The ball-tracking showed the only impact was marginal and since umpire Palliyaguruge had given it, there was no chance of it getting overturned.
