During the third One-Day International match between India and New Zealand, which took place on Tuesday in Indore, Ishan Kishan failed to stump Devon Conway when he should have, which provided Conway with a lifeline.
Conway finished the game with 138 runs scored off of 100 deliveries, however it was not enough for the away team to secure the victory.
The ball bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal took the opening batsman from New Zealand by complete surprise. However, because the batsman had moved out of the crease, Kishan was unable to gather the ball correctly and the opportunity was lost.
After the incident was captured on video and shared across multiple social media platforms, Kishan’s reaction to the missed opportunity and the facial expressions shown by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma caused him to show visible signs of frustration.
In reference to the game, Rohit Sharma produced his first one-day international hundred in three years, and Shubman Gill extended his dominance with another exquisite century as India completed a clean sweep with a win over New Zealand by 90 runs in the third match played on Tuesday in Indore.
At the Holkar Stadium, batters from both teams lit up the dead rubber, resulting in a total of 680 runs being scored.
Both Rohit (101 off 85 balls) and Gill (112 off 78 balls) reached the three-figure barrier, with Gill scoring his fourth ODI hundred to bring India’s total to 385 for nine. Rohit reached the milestone for the first time since January 2020.
After suffering two defeats in a row, the top-order batsmen for New Zealand put up a much stronger performance. Shardul Thakur (3/45) and Kuldeep Yadav (3/62) consistently struck to bowl out the Black Caps for 295 in 41.2 overs, despite Devon Conway’s (138) efforts to stitch together important partnerships for the Black Caps.
After India’s victory over Sri Lanka the previous week, this was their second consecutive clean sweep.
Following Finn Allen’s (0) dismissal by Hardik Pandya (1/37), Conway scored 106 runs in partnership with Henry Nicholls and 78 runs in partnership with Daryl Mitchell (24).
Initial difficulties for the Indian bowlers occurred since Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj were not available to them. As a result, runs were conceded when Conway hit the ball all over the field.
Shardul, on the other hand, was successful in turning the game around when, in the 26th over, he grabbed the wickets of Mitchell and Tom Latham (0) in quick succession.
In the following over, Thakur bowled Glenn Phillips (5) out with a cross-seam delivery that sent him packing.
After that, Umran Malik (1/52) got Conway as the century pulled awkwardly, and Rohit did the rest of the damage at midwicket as the game appeared to be slipping away from New Zealand’s control.
