Suryakumar Yadav had to once again walk off the pitch following a unique dismissal. Although the decision was not controversial this time, rather, the batsman’s efforts were outmatched courtesy of superb fielding by Chris Jordan.
The dismissal happened in 14th over as the 30-year-old hit Adil Rashid’s delivery towards long-on, trying to further accelerate the innings. However, the exquisitely-played stroke backfired as Chris Jordan sprinted to the spot in time, and dived acrobatically to clinch the ball with his right hand. But that was not the end of it! As soon as Jordan got it, he soon realized that he will end up crossing the rope with momentum. So, in a quick turn of events, the pacer threw it inwards as Indian fans held their nerves. However, for England’s fortune, Jason Roy also rushed in time towards Jordan and grasped the throw.

The incident was reviewed by the third umpire again and rightly ruled as valid. Those might not be best numbers, but SKY’s innings certainly boosted India as he smashed 32 runs from 17 balls.
