While chasing 209 successfully, India lost Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh on third, fourth and fifth deliveries of the 20th over. With just a solitary run needed off the final ball, Rinku lofted Sean Abott over long-on for six.
But replays showed it was a no-ball and that was enough to get India the victory. Even if it was not a no-ball, Rinku’s six would have still got India over the line safely. Once the game was over, heart-warming scenes took over as Rinku embraced Abhishek Nayar, his assistant coach from Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, who was on ground as a broadcaster for the hosts’.
