When Ayush Badoni, 22, shuffled across and lapped Hardik Pandya to fine-leg boundary, his childhood coach Balraj Kumar laughed at his home in Punjab.

Gill’s Kapilesque catch; Forlorn KL Rahul; Hardik’s review, laced with swagger & Badoni’s long wait for a boundary

Krunal Pandya veiled his joy with his palms after he ejected his brother Hardik. As soon as Manish Pandey completed the skier, and a crushed Hardik swiped his bat in the air in rage, Krunal turned away from his brother and covered his face in his arms.
