Visakhapatnam: Team India won the first T20 match against Australia yesterday in Visakhapatnam by 2 wickets. Chasing a target of 209 runs, the start was a shock for the Indian team. With Yashvi Jaiswal and Ruduraj as the openers, Ruduraj was run out in the first over. Jaiswal, who was at the other end, played aggressively and scored 21 runs, but lost his wicket in the 3rd over.
After this, Suryakumar Yadav played the responsibility along with Ishan Kishan. Both accelerated the run accumulation with fours and sixes. Both quickly crossed their fifties. Later Ishan Kishan got out after scoring 58 runs. Suryakumar Yadav, who played well, was dismissed for 80 runs. However, Ringu Singh played well and led the team to victory.
Ringu Singh added 5 runs off the first two balls when the Indian team needed 7 runs to win in the last over. With the score at 2 off the next four balls, both Axar Patel and Ravi Bishnai were dismissed in the next ball. Arshdeep Singh was run out on the 2nd run in the fifth ball of the over and a run was needed in the last ball. But in the last ball, Ringu Singh hit a six without any nervousness to win.
Speaking after the match, Ringu Singh was asked about his unnerving performance in the last ball. “It’s because of Dhoni. I discussed with him what to do to stay calm all the time, especially in the last overs under pressure. He told me to try to be as calm as possible and look straight at the bowler. I followed what he said. Yesterday I tried to be as calm as possible,” he replied. Revealed by Ringu Singh.
