Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan and Indian middle-order batter Suryakumar Yadav were involved in what looked like a fun banter during the Super 8 clash of T20 World Cup 2024 in Barbados on Thursday. The interaction occurred between the two elite T20 cricketers as Surya played a couple of well-connected sweeps to counter the wrist-spinner's threat.

Suryakumar Yadav came into the crease when India were in a spot of bother, especially with Rashid Khan dismissing Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant in quick succession. The Mumbai Indians star collected a four and a six off Rashid in the 11th over, forcing the Nangarhar-born cricketer to re-asses his plans. The interaction seemed to have occurred immediately after that over.

Suryakumar Yadav launches calculated counterattack to set up a 182-run-chase for Afghanistan:

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Indians star stepped up when Team India found themselves in a spot of bother against Afghanistan in Barbados. The 33-year-old shared a crucial 60-run partnership with Hardik Pandya to put Team India's innings back on track. Suryakumar brought up his half-century off only 27 balls, while Pandya contributed 32 off 24 deliveries.

The slog overs saw Axar Patel play some smart shots to propel Team India to 181 in 20 overs.

India playing XI: Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah

Afghanistan playing XI: Rahmanullah Gurbaz(w), Ibrahim Zadran, Hazratullah Zazai, Gulbadin Naib, Najibullah Zadran, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan(c), Noor Ahmad, Naveen-ul-Haq, Fazalhaq Farooqi.
