However he took the two crucial wickets of Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo.

Bravo who came out in the middle in the last over, was tried to go for a maximum in the very first ball he faced. Unfortunately he completely missed it and got bowled by Khaleel Ahmed. Immediately after Bravo got out, Khaleel cheekily laughed by closing his mouth with his hand.
