An innings of 136 runs off 127 balls. 17 fours with two sixes. Quite a respectable number. As always, some shots that spread peace of mind and eyes, strokes that turned the silky pelvis of the wrist — these were all there. At the end of the match, Lytton said at the awards ceremony, “No, there was no drought of runs. The format was different. I came to play in New Zealand a few days ago, the run came at bat. After many days I am playing in ODI format. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. ”

Liton batted till the 47th over in the opening of the innings. His target was to bat for such a long time. The right-handed opener said, “I did enjoy it. My goal was to play at least 35 overs as a top order batsman. If we can play that much then it will be more than 60 runs. I tried to make the innings as big as possible. ‘

With a record partnership with Mushfiqur, Lytton said, “Of course, it’s fun. I have a lot of partnerships with him. ‘
