In fact, it was Washington Sundar who told Sky not to run as he asked him to stay there. However, on the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav didn’t pay any attention whatsoever as he kept running.
On the other hand, the fielder from the backward point quickly collected the ball and inflicted the run-out. Meanwhile, Washington Sundar had no other option left as he had to sacrifice his wicket.
On the contrary, Suryakumar Yadav looked really disappointed as he was left fuming at the young all-rounder for miscommunication. However, at the post-match, Suryakumar Yadav apologized for his mistake.
“It was very important for him (SKY) to stay till the end and certain things like that happen in a game. Especially when things get quite tough in the middle, one misjudgement happens,” Washington Sundar said after the game.
Suryakumar was named the man of the match for his 26 off 31 in the run-chase. “It was my mistake, it was definitely not a run, I didn’t see where the ball was going,” Sky added.
