Watch VIDEO: Surya’s Strome came in the practice match too, see the monster six from the bat
IND vs Western Australia: Suryakumar Yadav is not stopping even in the practice match. He scored 52 runs in the warm-up match against Western Australia and contributed to his team reaching a respectable score.
Suryakumar hit three fours and as many sixes in his innings of 52 runs in 35 balls. However, one of these sixes was very long and the video of this six is also becoming quite viral on social media. It was a length ball and the Indian batsman hit this ball over the square leg for a big six. It was Suryakumar who once again emerged as the troubleshooter for Team India.
The Indian team lost opener Rohit Sharma and No. 3 batsman Deepak Hooda inside the powerplay, while Rishabh Pant, who opened in this match, was also dismissed by Andrew Tye in the later over of the powerplay. India had scored 45 for three in the seventh over, but then Hardik Pandya shared a 49-run partnership with Suryakumar and worked to bring the Indian innings back on track.

Harshal Patel took another wicket while Yuzvendra Chahal took two. After the warm-up matches, Team India finally has to start their World Cup campaign against Pakistan in Melbourne on 23 October.
