IND vs NZ LIVE: Horrible mix-up between Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan vs NZ – Watch

The wickets of both openers brought Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan to the crease. They added 38 runs for the third wicket, but were looking good to take India to a big score. But that partnership was broken due to a horrible mix-up between the two. And as a result, Ishan got out for 17 runs.

It took place on the third ball of the 35th inning when the left-hander played a ball on his leg side and called Virat for a single. Ishan ran half-way to the wickets but then decided to turn back to his end. But Virat was already on his run for a single. Eventually, the left-hander had to sacrifice his own wicket on that call.

The reply also suggested that it was Ishan’s call and he was responsible for his own wicket. However, after the runout, both batters looked disappointed, shook their heads, and had some quiet words with each other. Earlier, Rohit broke his 3-year-long wait for his century, and now he has equaled Ricky Ponting’s tally of 30 ODI centuries.

However, he got out just after his century, and Bracewell got his wicket. But India would be disappointed that they couldn’t touch the 400-run mark because the openers provided them with an excellent start, and it looked like they might get even 420 or 430 at one stage.
