The MI physio came running into the check Suryakumar Yadav as he was down on his haunches. After a brief delay in the match, Yadav was up and again ready to face the rampant Archer. Come to the very next ball, Yadav left everyone speechless as he without any fear crouched low and played an astonishing reverse lap for a maximum.
Meanwhile, Archer after getting hit for a six stood in disbelief as he saw Suryakumar Yadav play the shot of the match so far. Even after getting hurt the previous ball, Yadav didn’t question himself and still executed a breath-taking shot.
“I don’t have words for that (talking about the six after being hit on the head), I’ve never seen in my life this kind of a shot after being hit on the head, just showed the courage (after being hit on the helmet), I just don’t have words to explain the shot”, said Hardik Pandya about the six who was at the non-striker’s end.
Interestingly even the Royals skipper Steve Smith was shaking his head in acknowledgement when he saw the ball sailing over short third man. Also, Yadav did not come out to field in the Royals innings as he will complete another mandatory concussion test.
The opening pair of RR in this match Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler have come out to bat and they will look to chase down a mammoth total and clinch their first win outside Sharjah cricket ground in IPL 2020.
