Player of the Game is Prabhsimran Singh
Prabhsimran Singh said ” The idea was to extend the game after we lost a few wickets. I’ve been on the squad for a long time, and you have to seize opportunities when they come your way. The objective was to develop some partnerships by concentrating on a few bowlers because the wicket was initially a little difficult. I’m quite appreciative to management for the opportunities“
