"A Joint Mission with the Sand" (砂との共同作戦, Suna to no Kyōdō Sakusen) is episode 169 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.

Synopsis

Boruto continues practising his Wind Release: Rasengan, but Kakashi thinks it's as far as he can push at the moment, disheartening Boruto. Konohamaru and Mugino observe patients going into a restricted treatment area, where they don't come out. Among the doctors, Konohamaru recognises the doctor who helped with the Iwagakure coup. The only area they have yet to search is the underground area accessed through the elevator. Shikadai greets Boruto, and tells him not to overdo it with his training. Boruto shares Kakashi's conclusions with him. Chōchō observes Sarada's training with Sasuke. Team 10 is assigned a mission by request of the Land of Wind, to recover the missing puppet Urashiki used against them. The fact they haven't been able to recover it concerns them that someone else may have acquired it. They discuss Boruto's and Sarada's training. Deepa eats a meal at the Land of Wind. Chōchō wants to eat at a place her father told her about, and they reach it just as Deepa departs. They find the place trashed and everyone inside dead. The next day, they meet up with Team Shinki, and inform them of the restaurant incident. They arrive at the general area where Shikadai defeated the puppet, and they have Araya quickly canvas the area with his Sanshōuo puppet. Araya finds the puppet. Deepa arrives at the scene, and Shikadai warns Team Shinki that he was present in the restaurant incident. From Deepa's words, Shikadai deduces he's the one who defeated Team 7. Deepa attacks with his cubes, and Shinki blocks with his Iron Sand Wall. Deepa manages to break through, hitting Araya and Yodo. Chōchō and Inojin make separate attacks from two different directions, allowing Shikadai to pin Deepa with his shadow. Shinki attacks him, but his Black Iron Fist has no effect. Deepa breaks through Shikadai's shadow, and shatters Shinki's Iron Sand Wall with a single cube. Deepa collects the puppet and turns to leave, noticing his hand steaming. Shinki makes a final effort to destroy the puppet rather than let Deepa have it, and passes out. Back at Konoha, Shikadai reports to his father and Naruto. Boruto continues practising.
