IND vs NZ: Washington Sundar tumbles after excessive shot against Matt Henry

Washington Sundar showed the world what he is capable of as he hit 37 runs off 16 balls to help India board a total of over 300. Batting first, India was sluggish throughout and expected Suryakumar Yadav to break free. But while he disappointed with the bat, Sundar compensated by playing an innings blinder in which he played one of the most outrageous shots.

It all happened in the penultimate over of the match bowled by Matt Henry. Sundar went outside the line of off stump and scooped the low full throw right over the short Fine leg which ran away to a boundary. His cameo had some great strokes that gave India the boost it deserved.

In addition to his batting, he is expected to tax spin bowling quota alongside Yuzvendra Chahal.

Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer found form with a neat half-century after falling.

In addition to Iyer’s 76-ball 80, Shikhar Dhawan (72 off 77 balls) and Shubman Gill (50 off 65) also hit fluent fifties after the tourists were sent to bat.

Sundar hit three sixes and as many fours to support India at death, while Iyer reached four maxima and four boundaries after coming into play after his duck in the final T20 International two days ago.

New Zealand decided to field first after winning the toss and while Kane Williamson’s bowlers prevented the Indians from getting to a flyer, skipper Dhawan and Gill opened after being watchful.

Having reached 40 in the first 10 overs after Gill was dropped off Matt Henry’s bowling by Lockie Ferguson, the Indian openers looked to improve the run rate and look for boundaries.

Their quest paid off as India went past 100 in the 21st, with both Dhawan and Gill regularly clearing the ropes.

Dhawan cut Henry behind a deep point and clipped him off the pads in the 15th over to get two consecutive fours.

The India captain then got two more boundaries, from Adam Milne, including a clever uppercut to bring India’s hundred.

Having already hit two sixes over long-on and third man, using an excellent ramp shot, Gill got his third maximum when he knocked left arm spinner Mitchell Santner to the ground and into the screen.
