IND vs NZ: The final match of the three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand is currently being played in Indore (January 24). The match is a dead rubber as hosts India have already won the series after back-to-back wins in the first two matches of the series. Batting first after losing the toss, India look to be in a dominant position in the ongoing contest. India inching closer to 300 runs with 10 overs and 5 wickets in hand.
Captain Rohit Sharma and his opening partner Shubman Gill scored quick centuries for the Indian team. The openers scored 101 and 112 respectively in batting-friendly conditions at the Holkar Stadium. On the other hand, young pacer Jacob Duffy is one of the bowlers for the Black Caps with two dismissals to his name. It will certainly be interesting to see how the rest of the game pans out.
Bad running call cost Ishan Kishan his wicket!
Meanwhile, the dismissal of Ishan Kishan in the ongoing match has been doing the rounds on social media. Kishan suffered a run out after an embarrassing mix-up with non-striker Virat Kohli. The southpaw made an opening call after playing a defensive shot in Coors territory, but later realized it was an incorrect call and no runs were possible. Unfortunately, the realization came too late as Kishan gave away his wicket and made the long journey back to the dressing room.
Commentator Irfan Pathan, describing that episode, said that once you say ‘yes’ in a hurry while taking a close run, it becomes almost impossible to go back.
Ishan Kishan, who returned to India’s ODI line-up after the Bangladesh series, looked dejected on his way back to the dugout. The southpaw was given a role in the middle order in the ongoing ODI series but failed to make an impact. Replacing the injured Shreyas Iyer, his scores in the three-match series were 5, 8* and 17 respectively. Kishan will now gear himself up to do well in the upcoming T20I series starting in a few days.
