SKY says Maarne ka mood ni hora hai: The warm-up games for the T20 World Cup 2022 have started for India and Rohit Sharma-led side was put into bat first by the Australia skipper Aaron Finch in the two teams’ on October 17 in Brisbane.
The opening pair put on 78 run partnership and it set the platform for the likes of Suryakumar Yadav to finish the innings on a high. In the form Yadav is in, it was always going to be difficult to stop him and he responded with yet another stunning half-century.
It was a typical Suryakumar innings, as he played a lot of paddles and sweeps and hit six fours and a six at will in his superlative knock. However, he caught the eyes of the fans and left them in splits with a savage statement that was caught on the stump mic.
After reaching a fantastic half century, Suryakumar told Axar Patel at the other end that he is not in the mood to kill the bowling which was clearly audible. To his surprise, the right-hander was dismissed on the very next ball.

Kane Richardson was the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 30 in his four overs.
