India’s Deepak Hooda has taken the international stage by storm with his brilliant performance in the two T20Is against Ireland and has continued his form against England. In the first T20I at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, Hooda smashed 33 in 17 balls as the Men in Blue registered a handsome 50-run win. In this knock, the Lucknow Super Giants all-rounder had some fireworks as he hit three fours and two sixes.

But one of these sixes caused a lot of problems for the commentators as it landed straight into the on-field commentary box over the long-on boundary. Hooda had just come into bat and was facing his second ball against Moeen Ali when is danced down the ground and smashed the ball into the commentary box. He then smashed another six on the next ball as he kick-started his quick-fire 33.

After the match, India captain Rohit Sharma praised his team for their positive approach from the opening ball of the match. He talked about how the team looked confident and took their chances with confidence. He said, “Great performance from ball one. All batters showed intent. Although the pitch was good, we played good shots and never got ahead of the game.”

“You got to make use of those six overs in the powerplay. There is a certain approach we want to take in the powerplay. You got to back yourself in this game, sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn’t. The whole batting unit needs to understand the direction the team is taking and the guys were spot on today. I was impressed with his (Hardik) bowling”, Rohit Sharma added.
