It was one of those days for the Indian National Cricket Team, where the entire batting unit failed collectively to make things fall in place. The Kane Williamson-led side stunned the Indian team batting department with their stunning work with the ball. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli looked angry on Ravi Shastri following the dismissal of Rishabh Pant.
The incident took place when Rishabh Pant played a rash stroke when it mattered the most. It was the moment where the batsmen in the middle need to settle in and take the game close to the death overs. Unfortunately, the young blood, Rishabh Pant, couldn’t resist the same, as he lofted one straight to Colin in the deep.
Rishabh Pant scored 32 runs off 56 balls:
As soon as Rishabh Pant played the false stroke, the skipper Virat Kohli moved towards Ravi Shastri and had a word with a serious face. The batting coach was also present with the head coach, which would have been one of the reasons.
Ahead of the wicket of Rishabh Pant, it was Rohit Sharma, who edged Matt Henry to Tom Latham while Virat Kohli was trapped plumb in front of the wicket when Trent Boult bowled a brilliant Inswinger delivery. It was followed by Henry’s outswinger to KL Rahul and then came the stunner from James Neesham.
Earlier, it was once again Kane Williamson, who stood in the middle to settle things in the middle. He was accompanied by Ross Taylor, who also batted decent enough in the middle.
In the end, all they managed was 239 runs on the board. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the wrecker-in-chief with 3 wickets to his name while Jasprit Bumrah, as always, pretty economical.
As of now, at the end of 32 overs, it was MS Dhoni, who is battling for the team alongside Ravindra Jadeja. They need 143 runs in 18 overs.
