IND vs NZ: Harsha Bhogle Left Speechless After Seeing Rahul Dravid's Ninja Action
India head coach Rahul Dravid was seen doing some weird, unusual Ninja strokes with his hands which we have never seen him or perhaps anyone on the cricket field do, following India’s victory in the 2nd ODI against New Zealand in Raipur.
India swept up another home bilateral series by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ongoing series against New Zealand with one more match to go. This, they followed of a 3-0 cleansweep against Sri Lanka earlier in the month.
After the victory, Dravid came out to the field and was seen gesturing with his hands to someone. This even left commentator Harsha Bhogle puzzled. While on air Bhogle said, “Try and decode that for us.” Dravid was also seen imitating a shot.
In the second ODI in Raipur, it was a stunning bowling display from the Indian pacers - Shami, Siraj, and Hardik - as they had New Zealand reeling at 15/5, before the likes of Thakur, Sundar, and Kuldeep chimed in the wickets section.
India bowled New Zealand out for 108 runs only which the hosts gunned down in 20.1 overs as Rohit Sharma smashed a fifty and Gill remained unbeaten on 40. Mohammed Shami was named as the Player of the Match for his splendid bowling display, which resulted in him returning with figures of 6-1-18-3.
With 5 straight ODI victories, India have 113 rating points, tied with topper England and second-placed New Zealand, and are third on the rankings in ODIs. India have a clear chance of going to the top soon. If India defeat New Zealand in the third and final ODI of the three-match series, they will climb to no. 1 position in the ODI rankings.
The third ODI will be played in Indore on Tuesday.
