Srikar Bharat had the in-form Maxwell at the non-striker’s end. But he said that the destructive Australian trusted him to finish the job. Also gave him a lot of confidence.
“In the last over, me and Maxi, we were talking to each other with regard to what are the areas we can access, and he was like ‘okay, just watch the ball and get bat on the ball.’ And that is exactly what we were doing. The last three balls, I asked him whether to run, and he said no, you go ahead, you can finish it off. That gave me a lot of confidence. And then I was just focused on one ball that was coming next. So I kept it simple, and as a team, we did very well, and we pulled it off,” Bharat said.
