WATCH : Rohit Sharma backs up his stump-mic claim with a six


Winning the toss and electing to field first proved beneficial for England as they quickly dismissed Virat Kohli and Sam Curran to left-arm pacers within a 46-run powerplay.

Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav then steadied the innings, but rain interrupted play for 77 minutes. Once play resumed, the Mumbai duo built a solid 73-run partnership for the third wicket.

One of the game’s memorable moments was captured by the stump mic during the cautious approach against the spinners.

Suryakumar advised Rohit, who then spoke about his intent to hit a six if the ball was in his range. The non-striker Suryakumar noted that the breeze was favorable down the ground.

In the eleventh over, on the last ball, Rohit responded to a fuller delivery from Livingstone by hitting a six straight down the ground. The entire exchange caught the attention of Twitter, and here’s how people reacted.
