Ravi Shastri, the coach of the Indian cricket team, has hailed the young spinner after his stunning performance for the Bangalore-based outfit. In a Twitter post, Ravi Shastri took note of Sundar’s feat saying that it was the best IPL performance so far in the ongoing tournament and called it ‘Special’.

Complimenting Sundar for his performance, the Indian head coach tweeted, "In a batsman's world - from Chennai to Washington. Best IPL performance so far in 2020. Special."

The clash of RCB and MI set the record as the highest ever tied score in an IPL contest. Both the sides closed with 201 runs on the board before RCB beat Mumbai Indians in the Super Over at the Dubai International Stadium.

There is no doubt to the fact that the night of Bangalore and Mumbai’s thrilling contest was dominated by the batsmen. When other bowlers conceded with 8 off 8, Sundar was no less than a blessing for RCB as he conceded 12 runs in his allowance of four overs. Moreover, he picked up the crucial wicket of MI chief Rohit Sharma.

Next, RCB will face the Rajasthan Royals, who won over the Punjab side in their last match with some tantalising feats. The Bangalore outfit will lock horns with RR in Abu Dhabi on October 3. Mumbai Indians are slated to play at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium against Kings XI Punjab on October 1.
