New Delhi: Team India continued their dominance in the second T20 International after taking 1-0 series lead. Hosts Ireland, who were asked to bowl first after losing the toss, were off to a good start but after the first two overs, it was total carnage. Fours and sixes just flew off the bat of Sanju Samson and Deepak Hooda. The duo registered the record for stitching the highest partnership for any wicket for team India in T20 cricket. Samson and Hooda put on India’s best-ever T20I stand – of 176.
The partnership between Sanju and Hooda is the highest second-wicket partnership in T20I cricket by any team. Samson and Hooda surpassed England’s Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan’s 167-run stand record.
