Earlier in the day, India faced setbacks as both their opening batsmen, Rajat Patidar (22) and Sai Sudharsan (10), fell early, leaving the team at 49 runs in 7.3 overs. The departure of Captain KL Rahul (21) further added to the challenge, as he left the field after contributing 52 runs for the third wicket with Tilak Varma.

However, the fifth batsman, Sanju Samson, played a crucial role in turning the tide. He formed a substantial partnership of 116 runs with Varma (52 off 77) in 136 balls, rescuing India from a precarious situation. Samson achieved a milestone by scoring his first ODI century, reaching 108 off 114 balls, featuring six fours and three sixes. In the later stages of the innings, contributions from Rinku Singh (38 off 27), Washington Sundar (14 off 9), and Arshdeep Singh (7 off 2) propelled India’s total to 296/8 by the end of their allotted 50 overs.
