Even though the third T20 between India and the Kiwis was hit by rain and cropped to 8 overs but excitement was still full throttle. India was put into bat by Williamson after winning the toss and India didn’t have the greatest of starts.
Indian batsman seemed like trying way too much given the shortened version and hence never seemed in control. India could only manage 67 in 8 overs and if you didn’t see Santner’s effort to get rid of Manish Pandey then you missed out on a beauty! So, after India could only post an average total with context to T20s the onus was on bowlers and bowlers did not disappoint their captain and won the match for India with a total which initially seemed easy.
New Zealand’s winning spree of T20 series was disrupted by Indian bowlers and the best team in T20 rankings fell short of 6 runs. Dhoni Ends Funny Events with A Run Out The last 2-3 overs of India’s bowling very actually funny as New Zealand batsmen were running for everything. It was a baffled atmosphere inculcated with wide deliveries, runs from bye, shy at stumps and the crowd loved the excitement.
This incident happened in the 7th over when Bumrah was bowling. So, after Tom Bruce tried a reverse hit on the penultimate delivery of the second last over he completely missed it but he still ran for a single. Dhoni took a shy at stumps and the ball traveled to the other end but Bumrah failed to collect it and the ball then went to Hardik Pandaya.
Then Hardik Pandaya threw the ball back to the former Indian skipper as he saw the New Zealand batsmen stealing another run of overthrows and after a fine throw from Pandaya the crowd witnessed a spectacular run out from Mahi to cease the comedy of errors!
