“This is his first fifty for the India. Life-time memory. The ball was headed right here. It came with a big thud. Somehow, only this glass pane was shut and we were very lucky. Now to the other survivor, are you doing well Rajal, is it alright?”
Moreover, when the Star Sports anchor asked “Now to the other survivor, are you doing well Rajal, is it alright?” Rajal replied, “We didn’t anticipate it landing right here, because we thought that the ball might dip and go down. But the ball landed right here. As he said it was a close save. The other two windows were open and this was the only one which was shut. It landed on the glass pane. Yeah, we are fine”
Furthermore, reacting to his six breaking the glass panel, Rinku Singh said, “I am sorry that the glass panel was broken. I did not realise it back then.”
