Washington Sundar surprises cricket fans with a beautiful scoop shot off Matt Henry in the first ODI.

In the opening ODI match against New Zealand, India all-rounder Washington Sundar excelled with the bat. Sundar demonstrated why he should be a dependable member of the Indian team upon his return to the team after an extended absence. The cricketer from Tamil Nadu hit 37 runs off of 3 fours and 3 sixes in just 16 of the balls that he faced. Sundar’s bat produced several boundaries, one of which was a scoop shot that likely perplexed the majority of his supporters.

Sundar has undoubtedly become a better batter in recent years, but the way he hit the scoop shot suggests that Suryakumar Yadav may have had some influence.

Fans have gone crazy for Sundar’s ability to knock such a shot, and some have even claimed that his cameo helped the Indian team score a respectable 306 runs. However, Shikhar Dhawan’s team struggled with the ball and fell short of expectations, losing the game in the 48th over.

In the end, the hosts won the game with to Latham’s unbroken 104-ball 145 and skipper Kane Williamson’s 94 not out off 98 deliveries as they scored 221 runs for an undefeated fourth-wicket partnership. They did so with 17 balls to spare. New Zealand needed 91 runs in 66 balls at around 8.30 runs per over at the end of the 39th over.

The hosts were in complete control of the game by the time Shardul Thakur (1/63) had finished a forgettable 40th over, with Latham scoring 25 runs with the help of four fours and a six.
