Indian skipper Virat Kohli came up with an animated celebration when India’s middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav smoked Adil Rashid for a huge six on his very second ball. Team India lost the toss for the fourth time this series and were invited to bat first in the fifth and final game of the series.
However, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma opened the innings for team India and gave a fiery start to the hosts. This was the first time this series that the Indian Cricket Team didn’t lose a wicket in the powerplay as they went on to cruise for 60 runs in the first powerplay. Rohit Sharma came up with a scintillating half-century but was dismissed soon by Ben Stokes on 64 runs.

As Rohit Sharma went back to the dugout, Suryakumar Yadav came out to bat at number three for India. Much like his heroics in the last game, Suryakumar Yadav once again began on a fiery note as he smacked Adil Rashid on just the second ball he faced. Surya was at his absolute best as he once again smoked Rashid fr a six on the very next delivery.
However, on the first six, Virat Kohli seemed quite amused with the young Indian batsman as he lauded him for the gigantic 89 metres six. He also came up with an animated reaction towards Adil Rashid, who has got the better of Virat in the series so far.
Team India Cruising To A Gigantic Total
Suryakumar Yadav soon departed after a brilliant catch by Chris Jordan and Jason Roy as they combined to pull off a great catch on the boundary ropes. Virat kept ticking the scoreboard from the other end and smashed his 28th half-century in T20Is. Hardik Pandya accompanied him at the crease as team India cruised to a gigantic total.
The Indian Cricket Team and the England Cricket Team are currently on level terms in the series with 2 games being won by each team in the four games so far. The side that goes on to win the final game will clinch the series.
