Shubman Gill played the fourth ball of the 47th over towards cover and ran for a run. At the other end, Shardul understood that he would not be able to reach the crease, so he also returned to the non-striking end. Here he reached first, while Gill was behind. On the other hand, after the stumps were scattered, Shardul sacrificed his own wicket without any hesitation. It was also being discussed in the commentary.
