India’s score was 160 for four after 33 overs. Shreyas Iyer (80) got good support from Sanju Samson (36) here and both shared a 94-run partnership for the fifth wicket. Samson once again missed the half-century, but he played many good shots in his 38-ball innings. Washington Sundar, who came to the crease after Sanju’s dismissal, expressed his intentions as soon as he arrived. Washed every bowler fiercely. The shot against Matt Henry in the 49th over would remind one of Suryakumar Yadav and AB de Villiers. Two fours and a six were hit in the last three balls of this over.
