When Saini came on the field after Shardul Thakur’s dismissal, the team did not want more runs to win. Another thing Saini was struggling with groin injury at that time and he did not stay at the crease for long. He was at the crease for about 3 minutes and returned without playing the ball. Pant gave Josh Hazlewood four boundaries at the other end to give the team victory. He faced 138 balls and hit an unbeaten 89, hitting 9 fours and 1 six.
