Prasidh Krishna breaks Yuzvendra Chahal's unwanted record of conceding most runs in a T20I by an Indian
Prasidh Krishna conceded 68 runs in his quota of 4 overs and failed to defend 21 runs in the final over.
You can not control Glenn Maxwell when he is chasing a target in the ongoing cricket season in India. Glenn Maxwell has once again taken Australia out of crisis and helped them chase a mammoth total. India suffered a last-ball defeat against Australia at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Maxwell took on the bowlers in the final overs along with skipper Mathew Wade. Indian bowlers conceded 45 runs in the final two overs.
Indian pacer Prasidh Krishna was given the task to defend 21 runs in the final over but he conceded 23 runs to register an unwanted bowling record under him. He overtook Yuzvendra Chahal to become the bowler with the most runs conceded in a T20I match for India. Prasidh Krishna conceded 68 runs in his 4 overs. Maxwell smashed Krishna 3 back-to-back fours and a six in his final over and won the game for his team with an unbeaten knock of 104 runs.
Prasidh Krishna overtakes Yuzvendra Chahal in unwanted record
Prasidh Krishan overtook Yuzvendra Chahal who held this record for 5 years. Chahal conceded 64 runs against South Africa at SuperSport Park in 2018. Arshdeep Singh is another Indian bowler to have conceded 60+ runs in an innings in T20Is. Arshdeep’s worst figures also came at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati against South Africa last year. Out of his 24 deliveries today, Krishna delivered only 4 dot balls and got smacked for 10 fours and 3 sixes.
Axar Patel also conceded 22 runs in the penultimate over that helped Australia in their chase. Axar Patel’s over helped Australia manage the deficit and the skipper Mathew Wade and Glenn Maxwell together went for the target in the final over. Mathew Wade began with a boundary off the slower bouncer of Prasidh Krishna and in the second delivery, he got off-strike, and then Maxwell took the charge to script Australia’s comeback.
Glenn Maxwell equalled the record of fastest T20I century by an Australian with his 47-ball hundred against India. Maxwell equaled Josh Inglis and Aaron Finch who also scored their fastest T20I ton in 47 balls. Raipur’s Captain Roop Singh Stadium will host the 4th T20I between India and Australia as Australia’s comeback has made the ongoing series a bit more interesting. The final game of the series will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday.
