Team India vice-captain Suryakumar Yadav was spotted playing with a paper plane during the third T20I against New Zealand at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, February 1.

The incident took place during the Kiwi innings while the Indian cricketer was fielding on the boundary. In between deliveries, Suryakumar was spotted playing with a paper plane.

Throwdown specialist Raghu was also seen standing beside the cricketer and enjoying the turn of events. Watch the clip below:

Suryakumar looked in decent form and capitalized on the start provided by Rahul Tripathi and Shubman Gill. He scored a quickfire 24 before holing out to Michael Bracewell at the mid-on region.

The No.1-ranked T20I batter had a moderate series given his high standards, amassing 97 runs in three games at an average of 48.50 with the highest score of 47.

Speaking of the game, India posted a mammoth total of 234/4 in their stipulated 20 overs, riding on Gill's unbeaten hundred. In response, the Blackcaps were bundled out for 66 runs. As a result, the Men in Blue won the three-match series by a 2-1 margin despite losing the first game.

Hardik Pandya was the pick of the Indian bowlers, returning with figures of 4/16. Arshdeep Singh, Shivam Mavi, and Umran Malik picked up two wickets apiece.
