Faf Du Plessis played a key role in the big total scoring 88 runs from 57 balls. Virat Kohli also scored unbeaten 41 runs from 29 balls.

However, Anuj Rawat made a blunder by dropping a simple looking catch of Odean Smith who played a cameo in the back end of the innings. In the 17th over of the innings, Smith tried to play an attacking shot to delivery outside off and lofted it in the air towards deep extra cover. Rawat judged the ball correctly but the ball popped out of his hands.
