The entire team left the field under the leadership of its captain Nitish Rana. Eventually match referee P. Ranganathan intervened and got the match restarted. By then Shubman Gill had made his debut in Team India. Had played two matches, but despite this life-giving, he could not play a big innings. Then Shubman Gill, who was 20 years old, became a victim of Simarjit Singh. His catch was caught by Anuj Rawat for 23 runs in 41 balls.
