After the early dismissal of Watson, the onus was on the veterans like Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina and they delivered when it mattered the most by adding as many as 120 runs for the second wicket. Meanwhile, both of them scored the fifties, but Raina was dismissed by Sam Curran in the 17th over. Before the dismissal, Faf had smashed the bowler for a six over the bowler’s head.

Here is the video of the same:

After his dismissal, Dhoni came out to bat when Du Plessis was looking all set to make is the first century of the season, but again Curran barred him from doing that by dismissing the batsman with a brilliant yorker in the 19th over. Before getting out, Faf had smashed the bowler for a huge six over mid-wicket. Curran had delivered a slower ball, but Du Plessis pounded it way back over the long boundary, he was dismissed on an individual score of 96 as he missed a well deserved century.
