The off- incentive, who kept an immaculate good length, blandished Allen to mishit a reach to Suryakumar at deepmid-wicket. In the same over, Sundar outfoxed Mark Chapman with three flat skidders, before delivering a flighted ball. Chapman, all at ocean, prodded forward to offer a sharp return catch to a diving Sundar.
Conway kept ticking, going on one knee to sweep the baits. The southpaw departed in the 18th over, skying Arshdeep Singh to long- out.
