During the second T20 international between India and New Zealand, a terrible mix-up happened between Suryakumar Yadav and Washington. Watch: Suryakumar Yadav gets furious over Washington Sundar’s denial, and the latter sacrifices his wicket.
In the second innings of the game, India lost a wicket in a very crunch situation of the chase. The Kiwi spinners managed to get the best out of Indian batters even with the minimal score of 100 runs. Santner, Sodhi, Phillips, and Bracewell bowled tight overs in the middle which never let the Indian batsman put pressure on New Zealand.
Sundar sacrificed his wicket after a mix-up with Suryakumar
During the 15th over of the innings, an lbw appeal was made against Suryakumar Yadav. Philips’s tossed-up deliveries struck on the pads of Surya while he was trying to reverse sweep it. SKY missed the reverse sweep and ran without even looking at his partner on the other end.

Washington Sundar stationed at the non-striker end was not ready for the run as there was never a run there. Washington sacrificed his wicket for the number t20 batter in the world and kept walking to the dressing room disappointed.
India won the match by 6 wickets and Suryakumar Yadav was named MOM
Fortunately, the mix-up between Surya and Washington didn’t cost much to the Indian team as India won the match in 19.5 overs. In the post-match presentation, Surya admitted that it was his fault and there was never a run.
Everything ended well for India as they managed to equalise the series in Lucknow.
