New Zealand came back very strongly in the second T20I of the ongoing 3-match series against India, and levelled the series 1-1.
India outplayed Kiwis in the first match at Feroz Shah Kotla in all three departments of the game and registered a thumping victory. It was also Ashish Nehra’s last international match for India and he got a fitting farewell.
But, in the second ODI in Rajkot, the Blackcaps came back very strongly and outplayed India. There were some fielding errors by New Zealand but their batsmen and bowlers gave a very solid performance.
During the match, there was a very funny incident involving MS Dhoni. Dhoni tried to play an aggressive stroke on the front foot but lost his balance and somehow, just somehow, he managed to keep his feet grounded and save his wicket.
Twitter found MS Dhoni’s posture very ‘interesting’ and there was a flood of tweets:
