In the fourth over of Suchith, after Watson dismissal, Suresh Raina came out to bat and Rishabha Pant gave him an unusual welcome as he didn’t let Raina go towards the crease and blocked his way in a fun way. After the early dismissal of Watson, Du Plessis and Raina added as many as 83 runs for the second wicket before the former got out in the 14th over of Axar Patel. However, they only managed to score 27 runs in the powerplay.

Before getting out Faf smashed Axar for huge six over the long-off boundary. However, on the very next ball, Axar delivered a loopy delivery and managed to beat a batsman in flight. Faf came down the pitch again and was looking to smash another six, but he is inches short of getting to the pitch of this and ended up getting it off the thick outside edge and Shikhar Dhawan took a comfortable catch at long-off.

Here are the videos of the six and the dismissal:
