Against Hong Kong, The captain of the team RG Sharma scored 23 runs off 22 balls and out when it was (7.4 taken at mid-off. This is nicely engineered by the bowler. Floats it up at off stump, no cover for the slog on the leg side so Rohit wants to take that option. But he has played three cross-batted hits and failed to connect them cleanly today, and the fourth one is the downfall. He’s not to the pitch and he gets a leading edge. Simple catch.. 45/1).
