The wicketkeeper-batsman raised the roof with five sixes in a breathtaking visit to the crease, putting on 79 with Ambati Rayudu (41 off 24) in just six overs.

However, Rishabh Pant and Vijay Shankar later on struck an 88-run partnership to keep their side in the hunt, but the men in yellow bounced back. He hit 7 boundaries and 4 sixes on his way to 79 from 45 balls.
