New Delhi: Suryakumar Yadav played a brilliant end hitting for the first time in T20 international cricket, but was the victim of a bad decision from third referee Virender Sharma. If they had not been distributed, they would have proved more beneficial for Team India.
Six from the first ball
Suryakumar Yadav hit a solid six on the very first ball of his T20 International career. Bowler Jofra Archer was also surprised to see the Sun’s confidence. He made his debut in Game 2 of this series but unfortunately didn’t have a chance to beat.

Sun is fifty
Suryakumar Yadav had a brilliant 57 runs on 31 balls with the help of 6 fours and 3 sixes. Beating for the first time in his career T20 International, he has proven himself fully ready for a long career in Team India.
The third referee made a mistake
When Suryakumar was heading for a big round, he had to bear the brunt of the third referee’s bad decision. Outfielder David Malan dove and tried to catch up when Surya hit Sam Curran’s ball towards the slender leg. In the replays, the ball was seen clearly touching the ground, but the TV referee confirmed the court referee’s decision.

Celebrities raise questions
Virender Sehwag trolled the third referee in his style. Wasim Jaffer opposed such a move, even Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh said the ball was on the ground. Apart from that, many cricket fans have beaten the referee.
